Guys,

For those who have scopes on your .22 what kind of scope do you top it with?

Thanks,

Mel

I bought a weaver 2-7 rimfire for my new bolt action 22. I am not that impressed. I wish I would have bought the Leupold instead.

I've got an older Leupold on mine and am thinking about putting a Conquest I have in the safe on it.

Luepold 2-7 is perfect.

I think a serious .22 needs a serious scope. I gave up on the cheap $29, 7/8" rimfire scopes years ago.

On my two .22s with scopes, one wears a 2x7 Leupold. The other has a 1.5x6 Fujinon. Ideally, a .22 scope should be parallax-adjusted to 50 yards, but I think the usual 100-yd parallax setting is OK for casual plinking and squirrel hunting. Now if you shoot a tricked-out Anschutz(sp?), you already have your scope....

I like the $100 Nikon fixed 4x scope, great clarity.

A 2-7 is just about perfect. I have some old Leupolds.

I like the recommendation of 2-7 power scopes but my Zeiss Conquest that I'm thinking of putting on it is a 3.5-10X44 because it's better than what's on it and it's just gathering dust in my gun safe.

I do think the 2-7'sare just about right for a 22, but recently I moved one of them to the wife's tiny little BL-22 micro and bought myself a new 3-9 Nikon with BDC for 22lr. Nice scope, though it's a bit larger than the Leupold 2-7. I like the BDC, which can be useful on a rainbow trajectory 22lr. So, a 3.5-10 should also be workable. Try it and see.

Me too. I have the Nikon prostaff 3-9x40 rimfire. I shoot really nice groups with it at 50 yards. No need for the spotting scope to see those little .22 holes if you dial it up.

AO is a useful feature for rimfires. My bolt action is capable of shooting flies at 50 yards so I put a VX-III 4.5-14 AO on it. I don't believe in cheap scopes on good .22s.
