    At around $50.00 the Bushnell rim fire scope does the job nicely and not too hard on the pocketbook either. You can find these scopes most everywhere for sale. Comes with rings.

    I use Bushnell 1" scopes on all my .22's. All but 1 have a 3X9 variable on them. Yes, it's over-kill, but it works for us.

    .22 scope

    It's all according to the application. For small game hunting the Simmons 22 MAG 3-9x32 is tough to beat for around $50. Also available in 4x32 for around $35. You can set it and forget it! If money is not a factor the Leupold EFR rimfire scopes are at the top of the heap. Around $350. For target shooting, benchrest or silhouette, Leupold VX-II 6-18x40 AO fine cross hair with target dot and target turrets are my favorite at around $600.

    The best all around rimfire scope in my book is a Leupold 4x rimfire. Nice and bright with generous eye relief.

    Tasco's Golden Antler scope is excellent. 3-9x32mm adjustable focus, with tower adjusters, that is the way to go. About $45 on optics planet .com

    Weaver KT-15 15x40mm for me.

    I have a BSA 6-18x40mm and would rather have that than a Leupold VX-II 6-18x40. I had one on my remmy 223 adn the eye relief would change by 4+" Leupold refused to fix it stating that was normal for that scope so I traded it for a Nikon and now I have 2 nikons and no Leupolds.

    I prefer centerfire scopes with an adj obj on them for my rimfire shooting.

    If I could I would have a Nikon Monarch 6-24x50mm on my rimfire because that is what I like.

    I use a Nikon Prostaff 4x32 fixed. With the cheaper scopes, I always had a lot of eye strain which resulted in moderate headaches. Not anymore though.

    I have the Simmons 3X9X32 22 Mag scope with A.O. on my Ruger 10/22. For the $65 I paid for it, the thing is remarkably clear and precise. It holds zero perfectly even through some bumps and bruises while hunting. The adjustable objective works very well. I will say that it pays to get a good solid name brand pair of scope rings to mount it with and you'll be good to go. :cool:
