    Scopes for the .22's

    Mods please move this if its in the wrong place.

    So Ive bought a few .22LR rifles recently. A Marlin 60 and a Remy 597.

    I want to put scopes on em and I dont want to spend more than I did on the rifles. I paid $100 for each of them and would like to stay in the $50 range for the scopes. Im only gonna be hunting rabbits and squirrels with these so I dont need anything that gets me into miles of distance LOL

    Maybe 100 yards would be plenty for the plinking.

    Of course Wally World has some scopes and they have a Tasco there for $35.00 which is a 3x9x40.

    I have a Bushnell on my 770 and I like it. I was also looking at these.

    Simmons 3x9 is what I have on mine, and it's been great. (for a 40.00 scope)
    At your price range, that's what I'd recommend.

    +1 I have the same on my 10/22 and will use the same on my Marlin.

    I have a Simmons 4x on my Savage MkII. I like the reticle cause it gets thinner in the middle for more precision, the optics are clear and don't seem to have any problems not collecting enough light, and it holds its zero well. Perfect scope for a .22 IMO

    The Tasco 3x9x40 scope that you mentioned in your OP is the one that I have on my ruger 10/22. This scope gathers light very well, the croshairs are very fine to aid in your precision shooting, and the glass is clear.

    I have my Ruger sighted in at 100 yds, have been able to take several crows with it at this distance. My Ruger rides in the truck (sometimes bounces around in the truck) with me almost every where I go on the farm and the zero has yet to be knocked off.
    Give me my guns and my right to keep and bear arms, and they can keep their change.

    I've got a Simmons 3-9 on my slightly modified 10/22, and plink paintballs at 100 yards. I like it a lot, the eye relief is pretty meh, but certainly worth what I paid!

    Im surprised at all the Simmons suggestions. I assumed they were cheap junk along with the Tascos.

    It seems in that price range they are all basically the same though.

    I may buy one of each.

    For plinking, the Tasco's and Simmons are just fine. Anything beyond that, I'd look else where.

    I've got a Tasco World Class on both of my Ruger .22s and they work great.

    I have 20 .22 rifles, and 19 are scoped with various makes of scope. The one that isn't scoped is a BSA Martini Model 7. I have Tasco's on some that have lasted for years, but I have had a few Tascos fail. All the Simmons I have are very reliable, and I shoot a Simmons 6-24 on my primary Silhouette rifle, an Anschutz 64, and it holds center and adjusts flawlessly. My favorite scope is a 20 power Unertl on my Anschutz 1813 Supermatch, but a single shot 16 pound rifle is not a lot of fun to carry if your going to hunt with it.

    No offense to those that have them and love them, but I've never had any luck with Tasco scopes. The ones I've had have been inferior in all respects. I have had excellent luck with the Simmons scopes. I even have one of their 44 mag scopes on my 300 Win Mag and it has never had any problems even with the more than generous recoil of that rifle. There should be several good quality scopes in the 50-100 dollar range.

    I have used a Bishnell Sportsman with AO x3-9 32mm ($70 or less) that I mounted to a Ruger Single Six hunter (REAL accurate with it, picking soda cans at 75yards easy) and a Leopold 4.5-20x 40mm EPR for the Kimber K22 ($550 for scope though).
