    I've been having a lot of fun with my new ruger 10 22, but I now need a scope! I want to spend around 50. Any suggestions?

    WalMart. CenterPoint. nice thing about a 22, they don't have much recoil and most people rarely ever shoot past 75 yards with them, so on a 22 you can get away with a cheap scope.

    I'm going to agree with Axxe here. I've got a centre point on.....well had a centre point on my .22 before I traded it and never had a single problem with it at all. My girlfriends rifle wears the same scope and there hasn't been an issues with that one either.

    My 10/22 has a Bushnell on it that was lightly used and cost me right around $50.

    check out a LGS for a used scope. i picked up a tasco 3x9x32 for 20 bucks. its super clear, and works great. hey for 20 bucks i couldnt leave it there. for a .22 most any scope should work fine. try to have a look through if you can then buy buy buy.

    BSA sweet 22. Available at Dick's for about $50 and it is pretty cool. Has adjustments for various popular bullet weights and loads.

    I have a Centerpoint scope on my 10/22, a bigger Centerpoint on my AR, and a Centerpoint RDS for the AR as well. I don't do much shooting past 80-100 yards, but there are a combined total of thousands of rounds through using them and they've not even ever lost zero.
