Thread: New scope

  1. #1

    New scope

    I finally got my guns back from the cops, I'm thinking about getting a scope for my 22 Winchester lever action. What's a good scope for under 200 bucks

    I bought a nikon scope for my browning .22 and I think it was under 200.00 at the time. I think it's a 4x. Nice little scope.

    There will be recommended scopes for that rifle. My Nikon buckmasters was made for .22s. It's not as big as a regular high powered rifle scope.

    How far under $200 are you wanting to stay? That could really narrow things down with regard to short/compact rimfire scopes. And how short are you looking for? Just something under 10" or so? Or something more along the lines of a "tactical" optic? Also...what kind of shooting are you going to use it for? Benchrest target-plinking? Perforating bunnies/squirrels?

    Yes under 10 inches would be nice. I don't care 200, 300 bucks hundred bucks I'm not going to spend too much though I think I'll set itA inch high at 25 yards hopefully be deadly after 50

    Maybe set it dead on at 20 yards

    Look at Weaver, or some of the refurbished scopes at Natchez. I haven't been in the market for a .22 scope for a while, and I'm a Leupold guy (Gold Ring, baby!) but I put a Weaver rimfire model on a lever-action for an inexpensive scope on a rifle that kept falling out of the canoe, and was quite pleased with it.

    The challenge is finding a mounting system that works and that you like.

    I see that Leupold is no longer interested in making rimfire scopes I would buy (Must haves: adjustable objective, < 40 mm bells), with this possible exception:

    So, if you can find one of these used or as a display model and get a good deal on it, I would recommend it for a good rifle:
