Hello All. I have a Marlin model 25n .22RF and would like to find a good scope for around $100.00. This rifle has those 2 groves built into the reciver for scope mounting. Which scope should I choose for informal target shooting? Thanks Jay

Dollar for dollar, Swift perhaps makes the best "cheap" scope. They come with a lifetime warranty so you can always replace it. Tasco is another brand that is better than its price would indicate. Hope this helps.

Try the next gun show near you.... any 1 inch scope will be perfect for a .22

those 1/2 inch scopes are horrible

I was looking for a scope for a Marlin bolt in .22 mag, I like the Simmons line a lot, the one's with the ugly faux stainless finish.

Don't forget rings - check out Millet Angle-Loc rings for grooved rimfire receivers.

BKL's are very good, too.

I agree with the idea of checking the gunshows - I have been seeing a lot of Weaver 2.5X's, 4X's, and 3-9X's for $80 to $100. These are excellent scopes with steel tubes, good reticles, and good images - hard to beat. An old Redfield would be great also.
