My wife doesn't like the Ruger 1022 open sites. Thinking about a Nikon low power scope or something similar. Maybe 3-9x40mm? Can a pistol scope work?
Also thinking the same for my AR, the flip up open sites aren't that nice. Thinking of not going red dot. Thanks

Nikon Pro-Staff 3-9x40 are nice. Cabela's has the rimfire version for $99.

I've got a Redfield Revolution 2-7x33 that ran me $119.

I have several Vortex RD's and they are great IMHO. Hold zero, lifetime warranty, good customer service. I have a couple of Strikefires and a SPARC. My buddy picked up a PA Micro red dot when I got my SPARC and he has been very happy with his.

for the 10-22 id go for any brand name 3x9 scope in the 50-100$ range
i been rocking a cheap *** tasco on my 10-22 for like 8 years now and it works fine for what it is.

For a 10-22 you can't beat the Walmart tasco 3x9

The Nikon Prostaff should be more than adequate. Look into Burris and Leupold also. They have similar offerings.

Be sure to get one for .22 use as the parallex will be set at 50 yards instead of the 100 yards that a centerfire scope would be set at.

Bushnell Elite 3200. Although its more than 100 dollars, you can still use it on other bigger caliber rifles in the future.

Yeah you can. If you're at Walmart, skip the Tasco, get the Centerpoint 4-16. Great scope for the money. i've got one on my 10/22.

Hmmmm.... I have one of those $9 Tasco's I bought at WalMart about 10 years ago when I got my 10/22 there. It's 4X fixed and while a piece of crap, has worked fine all these years and through thousands of rounds.

I saw that Centerpoint and was noodling on it.

May just have to go get one to see how it does.

Thanks for the recommendation.
