I bought this ruger takedown last week and I can't decide what to put on top. Do I go with a scope or red dot like an EOtech. Pros and cons for both.



Thanks

Depends on your intended use. Most of the time with a red dot I'm still pretty accurate at 75 yards

I'm wanting to shoot coons from my feeder using a suppressor

Agree on scope, might go with one of the 1X6 power ones though, works well at 1X for quick shots but can crank it up when needed

Scope if you're not too worried about it fitting in its backpack. I decided to keep mine packable, as that's what my intentions were for buying it. I have the original stainless model. I did add a Tacsol SBX barrel which will fit in the pack with my suppressor attached, and added a Bushnell TRS-25 red dot which is super compact. I searched high and low for scopes that would fit in the bag without detaching it, and about all I could find were the UTG Bugbusters if I remember correctly. Not really my cup of tea, though I have no real experience with them.

I have the above mentioned TRS-25 and a Bugbuster. I generally find the red dot to be all I need for 75 yards and under. If you decide to go with the Bugbuster, you'll have to get an aftermarket mounting rail.

That's a lot of porting for a .22 barrel.
I put a scope on my .22 rifle.

Those are just ports in the aluminum shroud to reduce weight. The barrel itself is not ported.

Leupold makes a good 2-7 variable scope for rimfires, with a one inch tube. I have one, and have found it to be really outstanding.

I'm old school, and low budget. My favorite 10/22 wears a simple 3-9x40 Bushnell with lighted reticle, sitting on Weaver see-through rings. Many people hate high rise rings for obvious reasons, but they do have a use for some of us.

I use the scope at 3x-4x for accuracy at mid to longer distance shots. A quick shift in cheek weld allows me to use the factory sights for up close shots.

While this approach works well for my uses, it certainly may cancel out your whole point of a take down rifle.

I'd have to go the 1-4 or 1-6 route if mine.
