Question Help choosing 10/22 scope

I just read Sophias master scope thread.
I think I have narrowed the choices down to a 4-12x40 scope.

What are you running on your squirrel/rabbit slayer?

(I'm guessing a 25-50 yard distance is a realistic goal...)

Thanks all!

I use a Nikon 3x9x40. I like it but I think the Muellers are better & about the same price. I'm building a lightweight 10/22 this summer & buying a Mueller APV or target model.

Thanks. I'm looking into Mueller.

I have both the Nikon 3x9 and Mueller 8.5x25. For short work, 75 yards or less,
I like the Nikon better. Clearer view, better eye relief. 100 yrd and over, the
Mueller wins out. At 50 yrds also need to consider field of view. I think the Nikon would win out. Both are nice, can't go wrong with either.
The Mueller is on a .17HMR. That is why I use it at longer distance.

A Mueller APV is a decent bargain varmint scope but I like a fixed focus if I'm wandering around. A Weaver RV7 2.5-7x28 rimfire (~$140) or RV4 4x28 rimfire (~$120) are good little hunting/plinking scopes. The Nikon Prostaff 3-9x40 rimfire w/BDC (~$150) is a pretty decent hunting scope. For serious rimfire target shooting my favorites are Weaver's V16 and V24 but they're $250-320 and up depending on where you shop. FWIW Natchez is having a sale on Weavers.


Weaver RV9 3-9x32 rimfire w/AO on one of my 10/22s.


A Weaver V24 6-24x42 on another of my 10/22s.

As always your rifles are beautiful eye candy. +10 on the Weavers, best scopes for the $$$ in my opinion.

Thanks Sholling.
I'll look into those also.

Just curious, these scopes mentioned are 10/22 takedown compatible?

A Weaver RV4 is just about short enough but if I were to spend $300+ on a takedown I'd invest $220 on a Leopold VX-1 2-7x28 rimfire. It's a slightly better scope than the Weaver RV7 and more importantly for the TD it's an 1.4" shorter (10.1" vs 11.5") making it easier to put in the case without removing it. A Leopold FX-1 4x28 rimfire is even shorter at 9.2". If the Leopolds are too much then a Weaver RV4 4x28 rimfire is only 10.25" long

Barska Plinkster 3x9. I picked it up after the first day of an Appleseed shoot, so I could have it for the second day. I couldn't see the targets with just Tech Sights! Second day was actually worse because the rings suck on the Barska and it wasn't zeroed. But live and learn! I think even this cheap scope would work nice with good rings, I bought the airgun mounts that everyone suggests.

Got a Mueller APV for my Tactical Solution rifle. Very happy with it's performance. Really like the AO feature especially for a range rifle. Overall, you get a lot of scope for the money.

I've got - Muller, Leupold, Weaver & Nikon on mine but don't overlook BSA and Simmons for a simple basic 22lr scope.

I have a 3-9x40 Nikon Prostaff with the BDC 150 reticle.
It is a bit long to have on a takedown and get in the bag while still mounted.
While it is a nice scope for the money, I just sent mine in because it has stared to drift between rounds, guess I'll find out how good the warranty is.

The older Simmons scopes (Blount) were ideal for your needs. The Simmons original 1022T 3X9X32AO came in at approx $105.00 and was the rage of the original Rimfirecentral gang. It was NOT made in China but either Korea or The Philippines. They are 1990's issue and occasionally still around. Once Meade Optics bought Simmons the quality took a dump. Meade was trying to fill the Tasco void. That particular scope was discontinued and replaced by a $35.00 wonder with a similar name.
The Mueller would be my choice if I couldn't find a Simmons 1022T.

On my AR's and M1A I have fixed magnification: 5.5x ACOG on the M1A Scout, a 4x32 ACOG on #1 5.56 M4gery, a EoTech 557 w/3.25x magnifier on #1 5.56 M4gery, and an Aimpoint Comp2ML2 in my 9mm M4gery, figuring I would spend money on optics equivalent to or actually more in some cases than the weapon itself.

Amazingly a $40 with tax Simmons 3-12x variable scope works very well on my venerable 10/22. I can't vouch that it would have Mil-Spec durability, but it would be a cheap back up scope to add to anything. I completely broke down my 10/22 for an extreme cleaning after 25 years of ownership and it showed hardly any real wear. I would almost consider the 10/22 Mil-Spec and it would definitely be along in my Bug Out Kit right next to 1 of my AR's shotgun and pistols.

I have a Mueller APV & Tasco Mag 6-24x40 on my 10/22s.

I *like* both. My only wish was that the crosshairs were a bit thinner for high-magnification precision work. Both are good value ~$100.
