Hello,

I just purchased a stock 10/22 and what to scope it. I'm having a heck of a time with adjusting the stock sights and think I want to try out a scope on this gun. Any good suggestions on a 4x scope? Something affordable, light, but decent quality for the range.

Thanks!

Grant

I have a BSA .22 scope - some people think it's east asian junk but it hasn't lost zero for me :right: you might eventually want to get a bull barrel - the stock one is pretty inaccurate IMO.

Yeah I have heard that the bull barrel is a plus on a target gun. That'll probably be an addon very soon.

I have been looking at the simmons 22 mag scope, a lot of people seem to recommend that one.

Pick the cheapest scope with the features you want, it'll hold up to the 22 recoil. I have a Simmons 3-9x32 on my 10-22.

Ditto on the Simmons 3-9X32, mine is in silver to match the stainless finish of my 10-22. If I was more into target shooting with it, I'd go with the Bushnell 4-12X40AO. I have that one on a couple bolt rifles.

I save the big bucks glass for the centerfires - the Simmons .22Mag scopes, really any of their 40, 42mm scopes work just fine on rimfires. I have Simmons on all my rimfires including the .17VS Marlin & they seem to do a fine job.

Any Bushnell or Simmons 3 x 9 x whatever should do fine. I have an older silver tasco 3x9 on mine. I would go with the adjustable over the fixed 4x. The 10/22 is much more accurate at 100 yards or so than you would think! I use my scope above 4x more times than not.

simmons

I have simmons on about half of my 10/22's (I have 12) and they work great.
Remember there might be a manufacturing hump on the top of your receiver that needs to be sanded or filed down first to the mount sits nice and level.

If you go to Natchez you will find Bushnell 3-9x32 Sharp Shooter scopes for $19.99
I have one of these, and it is a great scope. Very clear. And for the price I don't think you could beat it for a 22.
