Does anyone have suggestions for a quality 10/22 scope? I want to try to keep it under $200. Thanks in advance for your help!

Leupold makes a rimfire special - more than $200 you could look for a used one.

I already have a volquartsen Trigger Guard 2000 so I'm set there. Hogue overmolded 10/22 stock. And a factory bull barrel. I bought a Bushnell scope for it but it is a riflescope, not made for rimfire. I did not understand and pretty much still don't the parallax issue.

You can get Leupold VXII 3-9x40 for $209 from Bass Proshop and few other places.

Is that set up for rimfire distances?
Link Posted: 9/10/2001 7:41:09 PM EDT
Trickey, I have a 10/22SS with a Choate PG stock blah blah, Anyways, before I put the stock on it. I had a Simmons 44MAG scope on it. Its a FIXED 4x rimfire scope. Can't remember how much I payed for it, but it was a great scope. I now have mounted a red dot, that I like for plinking. -Jared

I set mine up with a 6-18 rifle scope with an adjustable objective. I regularly shoot on the CA coast in the afternoon. It gets pretty windy at the Los Altos range at about 2 o-clock... at 100 yards no beer can is safe. Now if only furry critters would sit right @ 100 yards hmmmmmmmm oops was talking to my daughter and posted too soon... anyway I have several rimfires at my disposal and they all don adjustable rifle scopes.

I have a Swift 669 6x18 on my Ruger. It has the adj. objective and target turrets. The optics are outstanding for the price range- about $160. It also has a "real" lifetime warranty. They will fix or replace for as long as you own it. If you want to put each bullet in the same hole, definitely get a scope with the adj. objective. You wont see a rimfire benchrest shooter without one. Mine adjusts from 10yds to infinity. Weaver also makes some excellent scopes in your price range.

Guys thanks for the info! Needing a scope seems minute at this point with all of the chaos. If anyone else has suggestions please post other options. Doing the research on the current options as we speak!

I got a chinese made scope called "Blazer"... its a fixed 4X39 scope for $19.95.... know what? It keeps zero just as good as my Leupold... now I wouldnt go and put it on my 7mm, but on a 10/22... great little scope, great quality too. M.

What is a preban 10/22?
Link Posted: 9/14/2001 11:41:05 AM EDT
Thanks for all of the help. I went with a Bushnell Trophy Hunter 4x12 with an adjustable objective (10 yards to infinity) it solved all of my problems as far as parallax is concerned. I had to shell out another $30 for leuopold high scope ring because of the bigger objective. The whole setup ran about $230. Its hard to believe that I only paid about $230 for the original gun but after all of the volqurtsen parts, scopes, mounts and barrel I probably have the cost of three new 10/22s in one gun (with a lot of leftover parts) I bore sighted it last evening and will give her the fine tuning this weekend at the range. (of course I will have to bring one of my ARs out of principle) Thanks again for the help [sniper]

I got the new Cabela's catalog a couple of weeks ago. It lists a Leupold VARI-X II, 3-9x40 for 199.99. I called to order it and was told it was 179.99 with free delivery. I said send two.

What kind of mounts/bases are you using for your 10/22 's ? Does the mount that comes with the rifle work pretty well ?
Link Posted: 10/1/2001 8:52:01 AM EDT
Ive got a brand new-NIB- Leupold fixed 4x the M8 series in gloss with heavy duplex reticle..I will let you have for $175. plus shipping. email me if interested jaybee1967@hotmail.com

Have a big ass Bushnel on mine. Get at least 18x so you can see the holes your making
Link Posted: 10/1/2001 5:52:13 PM EDT
I have a Burris compact 4X on one of mine that I bought around five years ago for $149 and on another I have a steel tube El Paso Weaver K4 that I bought used from the Gun List and had a new reticle installed along with resetting of the parallax for about $90 all together. Both scopes MADE IN U.S.A. There is a tendency to get the cheapest scope you can find for your trusty .22, but what gets shot the most in your household? Don't be a tightass, buy the best that you can afford. BTW, 9livdoc has offered an excellent deal. Take it.

Airgun optics are the most rugged ones to use, I have a BSA variable 20X on my target 10/22. The fine duplex is all around great for semi serious 3 position and offhand Challenge type games. The bottom duplex point is your Kentucky elevation for 100 yards, when you are shooting timed events and you don't have time for sight adjustment. A cantilever mount is also better than directly to the reciever.
Link Posted: 10/1/2001 7:42:25 PM EDT
Which mounts are the ones to get ? I've heard that the mount that comes with the 10/22 is not very good ? Mount recommendations appreciated !
Link Posted: 10/1/2001 7:47:25 PM EDT
Well, there is the factory mount requiring tipoff rings (no good), or the one-piece Leupold mount that doesn't mate very flush with the 10/22s receiver, the Weaver T09 aluminum mount with a limited number of positions (okay), or the B-Square Weaver-type mount with multiple positions and two different finish types (BEST). The Burris will most likely have to be ordered directly from B-Square, but Graf & Sons [url]http://www.grafs.com[/url] may have it. Use Burris Zee Rings.
Link Posted: 10/1/2001 8:03:56 PM EDT
Does the Bsquare mount require additional drilling and tapping - is this the Interlock mount that goes for about $15 ? I have the Bsquare catalog and it's a little confusing They have three different mounts for the 10/22: one called the Ruger to Weaver and this is the one they say needs additional drilling and tapping, another is called the Interlock, but I can't tell if the Interlock is weaver rail or what - it appears that this one does not require additional drilling and tapping. Maybe I'll call them tomorrow for some 911.
Link Posted: 10/1/2001 8:09:15 PM EDT
The last that I knew, B-Square offered two different mounts for the 10/22. One was a cantilever-type setup that required D&Ting the barrel and one used the existing holes in the receiver. I used the latter.
Link Posted: 10/1/2001 8:10:31 PM EDT
I think you mean "411" and the "Weaver" rail is the one that I'm using.
