So today when I got to work I had a nice little surprise, my boss had got me a gift card for a 10/22 :D. What a great way to start a day!!! So right after work I went and put a basic 10/22 in jail. I got the basic one with plans of getting a nice little scope and an aftermarket stock. I like the boyd's ( http://www.boydsgunstocks.com/EVOLUTION-RUGER-10-22-RIGHT-OR-LEFT-HAND-p/400-513.htm or http://www.boydsgunstocks.com/BLASTER-RUGER-10-22-p/400-515-s.htm ) not sure which one, help!
As far as a scope goes I know they can get into some big $$, and it depends on intended use. So I would like to try and spend $50ish I'm willing to go more if it really is a HUGE difference. I plan on using my rifle to take out some cans and paper targets that have been causing some trouble at my local range, 50-150 yards.
Thanks for all the help

The BARSKA 3-9x32 Plinker is a nice scope for $40. Get some decent rings and maybe the UTG picatinny rail and you're good.

That BARSKA looks to have a fixed objective set for 50 yards, which is pretty typical for a rimfire scope. If you are planning to shoot from 50-150 yards at targets then an adjustable objective scope would be better. I haven't kept up on what the current best deal is for an AO rimfire scope, but the Simmons 22 Mag used to be considered a good deal.

Simmons and BSA make very good .22 rimfire specific scopes, too.

i personally have 2 Simmons, 10/22, scopes that are very good and I'm looking to get a BSA.

you may also want to consider some of the great airguns scopes available, too as their parallax is adjusted for 50 yards, too.

what ever you decide on, make sure it is rimfire specific OR has an adjustable objective or side focus.

scopes that are centerfire focused (no AO/side focus) are usually difficult to 'zero' at less than 75 yards.

good luck and tell/show us what you end up with.

I put a Tasco world class on mine and couldn't be happier. I know the rule of thumb on scope vs. rifle, but think it goes out the window on 10/22.

I like the Blaster stock, but that's just me. Don't like that big hole in the back of the Evolution, again that's just me. I have two boyd's stocks and they are a quality product.

Two scopes that I like that are clear and bright. Simmons 22 Mag 3-9x32mm AO (joeboboutfitters.com) around $60 but look around may be less somewhere and if you want more magnification I suggest the Simmons Whitetail Classic 6.5-20X50mm for $109+shipping @ midwayusa.com. The Whitetail is a large scope and some don't like the look of it on a .22 but its clear and bright. Easy to see .22 bullet holes on targets with the Whitetail but can't do that with the 3-9x.

I have both of these scopes and just comes down to the look, use and $$$.

Sign up at the Boyd's sight. They run killer sales from time to time if you're registered with them.

Does the Barska mount on to the factory railmount that comes in the box? I just picked up my 10/22 (synthetic blued) last night and want to throw something on it just for fun.

Simmons has a 4x12x40mm with side parallax. I think it was $60.00 or so at Amazon. Very nice and bright with the QTA eyepiece.

You will not believe how clear and bright this scope is and comes with rings:http://www.joeboboutfitters.com/product_p/sim%20511072.htm

I have had this mounted on two different .22 bolt rifles, CZ and Zastava and no movement of the scope and held zero on both.

Awesome, do you have pics of it mounted? You mentioned that it comes with rings, does that mean it installs right on to the factory provided rail piece?

ETA: is this the same thing but for $60 shipped?

I bought a Bushnell Banner 3-9x40 as recommended by a gun shop. It's really bright and i love it so far. http://www.amazon.com/Bushnell-Banner-Dusk-3-9x40-Riflescope/dp/B0000A0AGT/ref=sr_1_8?s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1318637958&sr=1-8
