Just looking to get a higher end scope on my 10/22 and was wondering what scopes you guys use.
I am tempted to get a Leupold Mark AR MOD 1 4-12x40mm because I qualify to get it cheaper as military.

Ive got a 3-9 bsa sweet 22 but I've seen blem Primary arms 6x scopes running for $79 bucks and am debating on giving one a try. It has a pretty cool BDC reticle and seen some good reviews. It isnt high end stuff but I tend to throw the better scopes on the higher caliber rifles

I put a 2.5-16x42 tactical bushnell scope on my volquartsen super lite. seems to work ok, maybe a bit on the heavy side, but the extra magnification is nice.

That's a good choice, given its adjustable objective and solid build quality, if shooting tiny groups is your objective. But, the VX-2 3-9x33 Rimfire EFR with adjustable parallax might be a better choice on a 10/22. 12x is on the high side for a rimfire that is not a dedicated target rifle.

Most of my .22lr rifles have fixed 4x or 2-7x rimfire scopes, the latter primarily rimfire Leupold scopes. I think at .22lr distances MRAD adjustments and reticle might not be best, either. The EFR VX-2 models with fine duplex reticle should also qualify for your discount. You can also get a CDS exposed turret version that is load specific for .22lr.

Mine wear Simmons scopes - I dont feel they rate much more than that. YMMV

I've got a Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40 on mine; works very well. I would however like to send it back to get turrets installed.

Just got done mounting a Vortex 2-7 x 32 Crossfire II on my 10/22. Haven't shot it yet. Tomorrow I'm hoping.

All indications are it should be a could scope. Really like the glass in this rimfire optic.

Have this exact scope. Waiting on a set of Seekins Precision rings to mount it.

My 10/22 is just a plain jane sporter. I have a Leupold EFR 3-9x on it.

I have two Savage MkII's. One with a Burris Fullfield E1 2-7X35 and the other sports an SWFA SS Classic 10X42. For target shooting I love the SS, but for general plinking/pest control the Fullfield is the way to go.

PFI Rapid Retilcle 3-12x44 FFP with drop compensator. It's a bit on the heavy but the drop compensation is set up for both subsonic and high velocity ammo, and is dead on the money and the glass is as good as my more expensive optics.

Nikon P-22 2-7X with BDC reticle. Very clear and bright but a little heavy. Very happy with mine on the standard 10/22 with medium Leupold Rifleman rings and Weaver base.

Nikon monarch 4-16x with a mildot reticle. Great scope for the money.
Link Posted: 2/20/2016 7:31:23 AM EDT
Leupold Mark AR 3x9 duplex reticle. Picked it up on EE, in a 2 Leupold scope deal.
I adjusted the parallax to 60 yards. I mounted it on my 10/22, for plinking and hunting.
I wanted something I could move to a 5.56mm rifle, if the need ever came up.

I have a Nikon Monarch 3-9x40 scope on my 10/22 with GM bbl. It's not parallax adjustable, but I never shoot at targets less than 15-20 yards away, so super close focus is no concern to me. The glass quality, repeatability and tracking is flawless on my Monarch.
Link Posted: 3/27/2016 4:43:59 AM EDT
Vortex Diamondback 4-12 AO with BDC. I think the AO is very important with a Rimfire cartridge, as I can set the parallax from 10 yards to infinity. The non-AO version of the Diamondback (about 100.00 cheaper) has a fixed parallax of 100 yards. Therefore, if you ever plan on shooting less than 100 yards, you will have a parallax issue.

I like fixed power scopes. My last 10/22 had a Nikon 4 x 32 rimfire scope on it. I gave the rifle to my brother but put that scope on my Ruger 77/22. I am now in the planning stages of my next 10/22 build and it will have a SWFA SS 6 x 42 scope on it. I have found that a 6x scope works best for my needs at 50 to 100 yards.
Link Posted: 4/8/2016 11:51:27 AM EDT
Nikon fixed 4x32 rimfire. Good glass, not too much magnification. Solid optic.

Same on 2 rifles.
Link Posted: 4/12/2016 12:19:41 PM EDT
Right now I have 3 on different rifles

Vortex Diamondback 3-12hp
Vortex Diamondback 4-16hp
Vortex Diamondback 2-8hp

Might have a little vortex problem

Right now my favorite one is the 3-12 although the scope lives on 3x for hunting and 12x for target shooting.

Really would like to try the new 1-6 Strike Eagle for hunting.

The 4-16 is nice for the 17hmr when shooting pasture pood
The 2-8 is nice for hunting except the 2x seems to have a narrower FOV than the 3x (There is a big price difference as well)

Overall the 3-12 has been the most versatile. It's not perfect but it does pretty good at hunting and target shooting

I did the same recently. Very happy with it.

Link Posted: 4/17/2016 7:31:13 PM EDT
Others have said this, but i'll chime in too. If you plan on shooting 25 and 50 yards, get something with adjustable parallax. I went with a 2-8x32 diamondback hp with bdc. With the scope zeroed at 50, the bottom bdc hash is dead on at 100 yards with standard velocity ammo. The swfa fixed ss scopes adjust down to 10 meters and are a good option too.

Two Vortex Diamonbacks. One is a 3-9, the other is a 3-12 HP.
