    so i've scene a lot of thses lately and i wanted to join the crowd. hehe

    so i need a scope for marlin mod 60. the max range i'll shoot is 100yards. most of my .22 work is at 50 yards. once in awhile i'll go to 25 but rarely.
    i had a nikon pro staff but that got placed on my wifes AR. im going to follow my own advice and swing by the LGS to look to see what they have used. i want black, at least 3x9. preferbly 4x16 or 6x18. the cheaper the better right now. maybe top out at $150. i'm a big fan of clear, crisp optics. if you suggest a barska i'll probly puke. i already have a 1 in mount. so i need to stay with a 1 in tube.

    now send the options!!!

    Well my suggestion is not a Barska, but for some folks it has just as bad a reputation. However, it has been a pretty decent brand of scope for me. Last 10 scopes I've purchased for my centerfire rifle shooting at range have been BSA models. Platinums, Contender, Majestic DXs, Gold Stars and a BSA tactical thats suppose to be an exclusive at Midway.

    Own several of the BSA Majestic DX Hunter 6-24x44 side focus scopes that were introduced early last year. Mine are on centerfire rifles I regularly shoot at range and no problems with any of them. Decent optics and no gripes about any of their adjustments. Had a discussion on inexpensive scopes today while at range with a gent who is a long time hunter, reloader that has some darn nice rifles. Had him view downrange thru one of my Majestic DX scopes when it was on 24 power, viewing my 100 yd target and then our 200 yard berm. He was surprised by how clear and bright my inexpensive scope's optics were.

    Think the Majestic DX 4-16x44 is a side focus too, that goes below 15 yds for parallax. Check Grafs and Sons for it....on sale there, marked down from about $135 to around $90. Use Grafs search box to find it....type in BSA Majestic DX

    www.natchezss.com has discounted the prices on the Weaver 40/44 aspherical lens scopes. The 3.8-12x44 A.O. is now $140. SWFA has it priced at over $210. These aspherical lens scopes are made in Philippines and have very clear optics.

    nice thing about a 22 rimfire is that there is next to no recoil, so this is one place some cheaper scopes can survive. not to say a higher priced quality scope is bad, and usually the higher the price the better the quality. for $150 you can find a very good scope that suits your needs. i have a cheap Simmons 3-9x40 on my Marlin M60 and it works great. i have a BSA Sweet 17 in 6-18x40 on my Savage M93r17 that works great also. check out the BSA Sweet 22 scopes. Nikon is a good choice also. so many choices and i am sure that others will give some choices that might suit your needs as well.

    I don't own one yet but have researched the heck out of them and will be buying one soon.

    Centerpoint 4-16x40 (Adventure Class)

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0041GQBI4

    Mil dot reticle
    Red and green variable brightness illuminated reticle
    Parallax adjustment from 5yrd-infinity
    Lockable and zero resettable turrets
    Comes with rings (and sometimes flip up covers)

    Walmart has them for under $70

    Almost anyone who has ever owned one has nothing but great things to say about them.

    For rimfire rifles get a scope that has an adjustable objective AO lens (parallax adjustment). There is quite a cross hair shift between 10 and a 100 yards. I like 4-12 X power AO scopes on my 22 RF rifles. I site 22 RF rifles in at a one inch point blank range using 22 LR HV HP ammo. Get the best quality scope you can, there is a lot of junk for sale.
