    Suggestions For A Nice Scope For A S&W 22A Pistol.

    Looking for advice on a nice little scope and rings for the Smith & Wesson 22A pistol. Nothing really fancy but certainly not interested in junk either. I'm thinking in the $150.00 range since the pistol is only a $250.00 item. I've had several of these but this is the one I am going to keep to play with.

    Your help and advice would be much appreciated!

    Regards, Diddle

    What power? It's tough to beat a Leupold fixed 2x. They make variables, but the light gathering (IMHO) isn't as good. Is this for plinking, hunting, target, what?

    Tru Glo makes. 2x red dot that is great for handguns. Fast with the red dot and just enough magnification to get all the accuracy you can from a pistol, works good on carbines too. I have one on a T/C contender pistol and another on a Marlin Camp .45.
    Try not to screw up so bad they name the screw up after you. (Station 15 saying)

    GT and Sh, this will be for nothing more than a target / plinking pistol. The faster (or better said) light gathering scope the better. Tired eyes from years of welding and torch work. And yes, I think something along the lines of a 2x magnification would be appropriate. The Leupold FX-II 2x Pistol Scope is well out of my budget. I saw a Nikon 2x20 I sort of liked but not sure if that would be a good match.

    I looked st the Truglo Red-Dot 42Mmx2 Sight but it looks like it is really large! No?

    Thank you fellers! I really appreciate you time and advice!

    I have a cheap 30mm TruGlo on my 22A and it's a really nice shooter. It's a little heavy, but I can consistently hit crap apples at 30 yards with it.

    Sightmark makes a nice "mini-red-dot" that is not magnified but is very good for quick acquisition and is very small. I put one on one of my 12 ga. shotguns and it has worked very well. (under $80.00 shipped from Optic Planet).
