Joe22 the scope comes with both the sunshade and the flip up caps. It's an UTG 5th Gen 3-9X50 TS Red / Green Illuminated Mil-Dot Scope SCP-395AOMDLTS
Yes BLFD1 they are really that great, they are the magazine fed version of the Marlin 60. Which was made before the 10/22 and has sold millions more copies then the 10/22.
Part of what makes them so good is the Micro-groove barrel which is as accurate if not more accurate that any bull barrel upgrade for other rifles. So pretty much you are getting a whole rifle for apx. 150 where on a Ruger you are going to spend at least that much for a good barrel. They also feature a bolt hold open on last shot.
People will say there are not many upgrades for the 795 but that is quickly changing as now stocks, target trigger / guard, bolt handles are being made for it.
