So I have an older BSA on my 10/22 (it was on this one when I got it) and for whatever reason at 30 feet away (the farthest I can shoot in my backyard) I cant for the life of me get this rifle closer then about 4 inches above point of aim. It doesn't seem like this scope is adjusting fully up (if I remember correctly). So I'm in the market for something else. What do you guys recommend that's not a million bucks. Say under $400.00.

I highly recommend the Leupold 2x7 rimfire scope. I have two. One on a 10/22 and the other on a Marlin 39A. Both have been top notch. They are easy to zero and have great quality optics in addition to a great Leupold warranty. With the proper scope ring height, you should be able to zero at 30ft. if that is what you want. At 30ft. however, your iron sights should work just fine.

Yeah there's no irons on this little guy. I may have to just get one og my Winchester 190s out for backyard target practice.

I need to get out and see how it will do at 50 yards. It seems like the elevation doesnt want to move for half of the adjustment range.

Mueller APV @ Joeboboutfitters.com. You won't be sorry. Great glass, customer service is one of the best in the business, lifetime transferable warranty, a lovefest for this scope on rimfirecentral. I own one and its a great scope. Get Burris Signature Zee rings in high and you are set. BSA scopes are hit and miss, mostly miss. I've owned two and neither has lasted.

The Mueller with focus down to 10 yds to infinity. Link to company but cheaper at jobobs. http://muelleroptics.com/mapv451440#more-149

+1 on the Mueller, they are great scopes. I have the APV on my 10-22s and the Eraticator on my Savage 93r17. The Zee rings are the way to go, like Izzy says, very solid, not real expensive.
As for your point of aim, you may be experiencing barrel droop, try a locking v-block or a Tac-Sol 20 degree mount.

I'm good on rings I have 2 sets of Leupold rings in different flavors. 4.5 to 14 seems a little long for a .22. Is that the right one?

LOL I guess I forgot something. This gun has a brand new Tactical Solutions barrel and the 20 MOA mount. I was almost wondering if the mount was why I'm running out of legs.

I picked up a BSA "Sweet 22" at Bass Pro shop for $150. took it to the range the other day and I was impressed. It was a huge improvement over the Barska I had on it before.

I hope its the new side focus one. I've been eying the older style running like $39.99 with $12.16 shipping.

3-9 seems about right to me for a .22 thats whats on it now and it jsut feels like a good range to me. I almost wanted to go with another Bushnell elite 3200 10xbut I just dont think its the right scope for this guy.

Mueller APV is the best bang for the buck. Lots or rimfire shooters use this scope. It has good quality glass at a reasonable price and holds its zero.

+1 on the Mueller APV. Love mine.

4.5-14x is not too long for a .22 at all. I have a 8.5-25x on my 10/22.

The only thing I'm worried about is 4.5 at shorter distances. My local club has an indoor .22 range and I think the far line is only 50 feet. I guess 3, isn't that much longer then 4.5 though. I guess I'll have to look around and see if anyone local carries them.

This is actually another bonus for the Mueller APV as it allows focusing down to 30 feet (10 yards). I dont think you would find 4.5x too much at that distance as the field of view with this scope is pretty good. A 3x scope with crappy field of view could be much harder to use at the same range.

As for purchasing it, Muellers arent likely to be found at your local gun shop but as someone else above mentioned, joeboboutfitters.com seems to be the best place to buy them. Free shipping, no sales tax and possibly a free tshirt too :)

I went ahead and ordered the BSA that I linked above. Its the old version of the "Sweet .22" I figure for $50.00 shipped if it works out, cool. If not then cool Ill buy something else and hit this one with a hammer. In the mean time I'll keep looking and try to find exactly the right one. I may build a second 10/22 for that Mueller and see which one works the best in and out doors.

Mueller is a very good choice, a friend of mine has the APV on his Marlin. It was a very good combo, a bit over kill in my opinion but for the price it's very hard to beat. I would get either the Mueller or a Nikon Prostaff.

I canceled my order.... I found the BSA for 4 bucks cheaper locally. Ill look into the Mueller for the wifes 10/22 I'm building. :D

Yeah its the new one, I really like it. The yardage nob is awesome. I was shooting at 25 yards then switched to 50 and it was dead on. BUT, I wish I knew about that deal could have saved a lot of money.

Good I cant get used to the Yardage on the new one, so it worked out perfectly! Tomorrow morning I'm going to the range.

For 30 feet plinking you are lookingat a lot of scope.
How about about the Simmons 4X , 22mag scope? It's on my 10/22. Plenty of power for 100 yards and still good at 30 feet. Has held zero perfectly for 1000s of rounds. Field of view is fine for paper punching and it is clear and bright with fine line x-hairs. I typically shoot one hole groups at 25yards.

For me it is hard to justify a $$$ scope for a 10/22. The Simmons is about $30 and worth double or triple that.

I had bought Nikon 3x9x40 prostaff for three 10/22s about $130 each. They were great scopes but had no A.O a friend of mine showed me his Tascos. I had shot this brand many years ago while living in MT and had really good luck with them but was not aware they were still around anyway long store short I ended up buying 3 2.5x10x42 from Midway at $69.00 each and love them they are as clear as the Nikons and have the A.O. I had only mounted one of the Nikons and it was a super clean job I was able to return all three of them to Basspro and saved a lot of money. Well thought i was going to save a lot ending up spending it right back the same day when they have 22 ammo for 14.95 a box for Rem 550 bulk.
