what would be a scope for a ruger 10/22? without spending $250+
Under $100: the 3-9X32 Simmons .22 Mag Scope with A.O. Blue or Silver $65 +/-.
Over $100: the 4.5-14 X 40 Mueller APV with A.O. Blue or silver $130 +/-
Both have excellent reputations for quality on a 10/22.
Weaver Classic Rimfire, a little over $100 bucks with parallax set at 50 yards. I think anything over 3-9 power is overkill in a .22.
What are you using it for? Is it stock or a build? Plinker or target?
I like to be able to count the fleas on the squirrels! LOL
Yeah you do!
I'm with him.
But with the recoil of the 10/22 you can use some big cheap scopes without much worry. I got a 6x20x50 for mine off of e-bay and had it for several years for just a tick over $100 with no issues at all thus far. It's held solid and killed a lot of squirrels. Not 100% sure I would trust it on the 308, but it's been rock solid on the .22
That would be my question too.
The straight 40 power scopes on my 200 yd beer can killers would be a bit much for my keep it light wt, carry all day tree rat slayers.
For a keep it stock, right out of the box 10/22 I like a good 3x9. If weight is an issue, ya might even go with a straight 4x scope or even a red dot. Good luck! Ken
I have 2 stock 10-22 rifles. One is carrying a red dot and the other is carrying a Konus 2.5x32 shotgun scope. My bolt action is carrying a 3-12x40 AO. I sometimes kill paper with it at 100 yds. I have not found much need for more than 2.5x at 50 yds.
I have a nice nikon scope on one of my .22's, but I personally have found a cheap sightmark red dot to be great. At the ranges a .22 is generally accurate at, a cheap reflex sight is fine, plus most of the hunting I've done with a .22 is more suited to a small red dot.
Just my opinion, but worth a thought.
What do you really mean by good? There's Bushnell Banner 4-16x40A/O with I/R for around $100, Center Point Adventurer 4-16X40A/O for around $70, Simmons 44MAG 4-12X44S/F for $125, Redfield Revolution 4-12X40 for $200, BSA Sweet 17(or 22?) 3-12X40A/O for $100, Burris FullfieldII 4-12X40 for $250, Leupold Rifleman 4-12X40 for $260(?), and lots more for more or less.
I have thest scopes:
Bushnell Banner 4-16x40A/O with I/R---clear glass, accurate A/O, audible accurate turret clicks. Mounted on Savage Axis 22LR.
BSA Sweet 17 3-12x40A/O----not on rifle as of yet, gonna get a HMR 17.
Simmons 44MAG 4-12x44S/F----exceptional glass, accurate A/O, great scope(surprisingly)----mounted on Ruger 77/22 22magnum.
I also have a Burris FullfieldII and a Redfield Revolution, Weaver Classic, Nikon Buckmaster scopes but in different magnifications mounted on centerfires, and they have superior glass, but also at a higher costs.
For what purpose,general plinking. Hunting tree rats? Or shooting on a .22lr run and gun coarse at the gun club.
What are you going to shoot with it? Day or night? I have the Nikon Prostaff 3 x 9 x 40 on my Ruger 10/22. It lets lots of light in at night for shooting raccoons and a few hogs at 50-75 yards. It wont break the bank at $169.00 I really like it.
Any thing from weaver thats a fixed power scope
