View Full Version : Comments on Optic and Rings for 10/22

I'm looking for the right optic and rings for my 10/22. I will use it mostly for plinking (generally 50-100y), and not for competition. But I also need it for the occasional squirrel shoot. Since the 10/22 is stainless, I would like the accessories in silver. I'm replacing a P.O.S. optic that I regret having purchased. Here's what I'm thinking:

Mueller APV Rifle Scope 4.5-14x 40mm Adjustable Objective APV Silver
Weigand Integramount Scope Base with Integral 1" Rings Ruger 10/22 Silver

Does anyone have any comments on this setup or on any preferred alternatives (in a reasonably similar price range)? Clarity, eye relief, durability, etc.

Thanks.

Mueller may be a good way to go but I like the Bushnell Tactical line.

Any updates on this? I'm kind of in the same predicament.

Nothing more from this thread.

Based on all the research I have done, I found that two scopes that have been frequently recommended for a 10/22 are (1) the Mueller APV - if you want a variable scope, and (2) the Nikon ProStaff 4x32 RimFire Classic - if you want a fixed 4x scope. 95% good to great reviews for each on the various MBs that I trust.

Of course there are other scopes out there that may be just as good or better, but from what I can tell, these two seem to be GTG. Remember that all this is based solely on the recommendations of others.

I plan to look at them up close and personal at the Crossroads of the West Gun Show in Del Mar in December.

I hope this helps.

I've got a Leupold VXI on my 10/22, and it's a great scope for the money. Flexible eye relief, decent optics, and sturdy. It cost nearly as much as the 10/22, but I had a spare one sitting around.

I haven't tried the APV, but it's quite popular. My Mueller Sport Dot 4-16x50 is an OK scope, but eye relief is pretty critical, and it gets dark at the high zooms. I like my Leupolds much better than my one Mueller, but it was a good bit less expensive.

I've got a Weigand mount on my un-drilled MkII, and it's been good. It's a bit bulky and heavy, due to the un-drilled design, and the slots aren't Picatinny spec, but I rarely change optics on the MkII, so it doesn't matter much. It's held tight for several years of regular use.

I just put a Burris Fullfield 3-9x40 with a weigand (sp) 1 piece billet base/rings on my 10/22 & it's pretty sweet.

I ended up ordering a Simmons Blazer 3-9x32mm Matte Black Riflescope. I know it's not much, but I'm not going to be hunting with it, just plinking and stuff.

Mueller is a good choice, they sure get the RFC crowd vote. But you don't have to go that route. I have a franken 10/22 with an old Weaver K2.5 that performs well at normal 22 ranges. You can get a 10/22 base and rings at most Walmarts for less than $15. For a really nice set of sporter rings look at Talleys.

any update from OP on this?
i'm in the same boat, having picked up a 10/22. i know the RFC crowd loves the APV (and i'm considering it). just like to make sure i can shoot it accurately at +/-100 yds w/no issues.

^ what?
is your mueller on a 22 and you hit varmints at 250 yds easy?

Wow! That's some UNBELIEVABLE shooting! How big are these varmints?
