    DONT BUY THAT!

    i just got a new scope made by tasco (red green and black mil-dot 2-6x32 AOE) for 45USD. it comes with weaver attachments and is solid like a rock. here it is: http://www.matchstickglobal.com/product_info.php?cPath=31_35&products_id=103 my ruger came with the mounts already installed. it was a weaver/picattiny combination. im sure that it wouldnt cost much at all for that piece, and just install it yourself. But this scope was accurate out of the box and a few minor adjustments.

    You asked about the best scopes,IMO those listed is entirely too cheap to produce top notch tracking/adjustment ability. Weaver classic rimfire 3x-9x is the cheapest scope I would think about putting on 1 of my .22s. In scopes,you get what you pay for.

    I agree with stalkingbear.

    I put the Mueller APV on one of mine 10/22's after many recommendations on RFC. A good performer for the price.

    I used the Burris Signature Zee rings that incorporate plastic inserts that keep you from marring the scope tube and let you easilly make adjustments beyond the elevation & windage knobs. I doubt I'll ever mount a scope using any thing else.

    I have a couple BSA Sweet 22 scopes and they work fine,but the Mueller is a good scope from what I've heard. Just find what you like and get it. You will get 50 different answers from 50 different people on which brand to get.
    Any scope that cost under $500 is a cheap scope in alot of guys minds,but I have seen people kill animals with a $50 scope just as far as I have seen a $1500 scope. It is just like they say-You get what you pay for. But on a rimfire it really doesn't matter,they have no recoil to speak of. Just look at several different ones and which ever one you like the best -buy it. THB

    TxHillbilly,

    Yeah, sometimes it a problem with too much information....Haven't decided what I'll go with ....Been looking at the Leupold rimfire scopes....Thing is it's a stainless steel rife.....So, i"m limited to try to match the stainless
