I have a Centerpoint 3-9x 50mm on my 10/22. It's nice and does the job for now. I'm debating whether or not to upgrade to the 6-24x one...

Mueller APV's are pretty popular over at rimfirecentral.com. I have one myself and it's got a lot of bang for the buck. 4.5x-14x magnification and adjustable objective for ~$115.00.

I recently bought a "Nikon Prostaff Classic Rimfire Rifle Scope 4x 32mm"
http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct...tnumber=149715

It's my first scope I've owned (shot scoped rifles before), and I'm very happy with the purchase.

I too but a centerpoint on my .22.. your kids will love it and so will your wallet.. 65 bucks from wallmart... bass pro has a BSA scope that is comperable... the reticles light up also...very "tacticool"... save the expensive optics for later... when you are ready to upgrade put the low dollar glass on an air rifle...

I'm using the Simmons 3-9x and it's working well under 100 yds. It's also under $100. When I move out further, say 100+ yards then I'll have to get something stronger so I can see the hole in a target without a long hike.

For a kid the Simmons 22 mag scope is fantastic.

Better glass for the money is the Mueller line.

I bought a Tasco 3-9x 40. With rings, under $100. Don't know much about scopes, but used it for the first time yesterday and like it.

I bought one of these for my 10/22

http://www.amazon.com/Bushnell-Rimfi...1218747&sr=8-4

My buddy liked it so much, he bought one for his Marlin.

Get one, it's an awesome scope for the money.

Just get a 4x bushnell from opticsplanet for 25$ or you could go all out and spend 45$ for the 3-9 version of said scope. Someone earlier said they wanted a 6-24. What the hell for? .22lr is good for about 100yds right ?

Get the basic 4x. It works great and your kids won't know the difference. Just my .02

It's a bit more than you want to spend, but I've also had good luck with the Nikon Prostaff 4x. It's something you can use for a long, long time.
