Can anyone recommend a good quality laser bore sight for a .22 rifle? Ive seen a couple out there but most have bad reviews saying that they fit loose in the barrel or are adapted and the adapter isn't that great.

I bought the Cabela's brand. It saved me countless unwasted rounds.

How is the fit and finish?
PS. your scope says "out for delivery"

No need to worry about the finish. At the end of the boresighter are plastic inserts. These inserts are used for different caliber ranges. You get four or five inserts ranging from .22's to 7.62 and bigger. Here's the link: http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/product/standard-item.jsp?_DARGS=/cabelas/en/common/catalog/item-link.jsp_A&_DAV=MainCatcat602006-cat601622-cat200006&id=0012854711491a&navCount=3&podId=0012854&parentId=cat200006&masterpathid=&navAction=push&catalogCode=IJ&rid=&parentType=index&indexId=cat200006&hasJS=true

I can walk you through it if you need once you get it. It's quite simple.

Another technique if you have an AR is to look down the bore aiming the bore and the sight at a common target down range.

I have that one too. Very good...not sure you could do much better. It got my mosin nagant on the paper within 12" of the bullseye at 50 yards. Just got to screw the little plastic things on the end and let it dilate until there's a snug fit into the bore..then pop it in the bore till it sits there, then line up your scope or sights, and done. QUick and painless.

Exactly, it's not hard at all. Follow Ironchef's insturctions. He described the process much better.:)

I've been partial to the cartridge like laser boresighters that you drop into your barrel chamber. These do a great job of accuracy in a specific firearm. The Aimshot tend to get high marks. Check out MidwayUSA.com for a complete list.

I couldnt find anyone who made a .22lr cartridge style laser bore sight. I would have liked to go that direction as well but with no luck so far

A good quality rest set up and one round of ammo is all you need to zero a scope at any distance. I generaly use a second round to fine tune my zero and a third round to confirm it. But, one is all you need if, you know what you are doing.

With a .22LR laser boresight you will save tens of cents over sighting in the oldfashioned way. I saved over 16 cents in ammo costs the first time I used mine. :p
