    I have or have had several Nikon scopes and I am/was very happy with them. Never had an Omega, though.

    Many, many options for your 10/22. What are you going to use it for....plinking, hunting, target shooting?

    I'm not 100% certain, but I thought the Omega scopes are for black powder.

    Take a look at a Pro-Staff.

    You need a good folding stock and it just so happens that I have one sitting here that I have absolutly zero use for.

    A lot of Nikon scopes to choose from, and I like the BSA scopes I've bought over the past few years. Either one will do just fine on a Ruger 22. I put a BSA Sweet 22 on my Marlin 60 several months back, a Catseye on my 917V a few months ago and most recently a Contender on my Excel Arms 22-Magnum rifle, I like the side focus options on the Catseye and Contender.

    Which cross hairs were you looking at on the Nikon??

    I'm a tightwad, I don't believe in spending more on a scope than the cost of the rifle. Most shots with a .22 will be at targets under 100 yards, so many scopes are good in that circumstance.

    I use Simmons 3X9X32 .22 Mag. with A.O. on both of my 10/22's. They do an excellent job and are between $45 and $65 depending on the sales and the finish you want.

    There's more than one style of Nikon cross hairs on the Omega scopes, Nikoplex, BDC 250, BDC 300, might be others as well. The link above has a picture of the three I just mentioned. There may be other scopes and other brands with a similar cross hair is the only reason I'm asking.

    +1 on the folding stock. That's the first thing that goes on any 10-22!

    With scopes, as with most things, you get what you pay for. I'm partial toward Leupold optics, because I used to work there, and know first hand the quality and workmanship that goes into them. Plus, they are made in the USA (Beaverton, OR) with a no-BS lifetime warranty.

    Simmons works for me also.
    I have had an inexspensive Simmons 3X9X32 with low mount rings on my 10/22 since 1999 with no problems to date.....If it would break today, I've got way more than my moneys worth out of it. ;)

    Keep in mind that 22 rimfire scopes are parallaxed at 50 yards while big bore scopes are parallaxed at 100 yards. Look for a scope with an adjustable objective (AO) or side focus if you want to adjust for different ranges.

    Very important to note JTJ. Good A.O. Scopes can have adjustable parallax settings from 10 yards to infinity.

    i agree with snakedriver all you need for a .22 (since its a tiny rimfire) is a 3-9x32 simmons and bushnell have great models and bsa has a drop compensating turret for 50-150 yard shots just zero it in at 50 yards it is calibrated for 32 36 and 40 grain bullets

    I also have a Simmons scope on my 10/22, and it works wonderfully. I also recommend a good mount, I use a GameReaper one piece mount with mine. It is rock solid and looks nice too!

    This is a must have on a .22 rimfire. Using a Rifle Scope with a 100 yard parallax really sucks at closer ranges on a .22 and leads to eye fatigue on the bench. I like an AO on all my scopes works like a range finder as well.

    scopes for black power or shotguns are set for parallax at 75yd. and make good 22 scopes the only drawback is that the crosshairs are very fat
