In that price range the Centerpoint scopes at Walmart are actually not bad.

I have the 4-12 X 40 on my 795, and while they distort a little at the high end of their magnification, they are pretty clear up to 9-10X.

ETA; You should consider upping your budget to about $150 and look at the Nikon Prostaff Rimfire 3-9 X 40. I just picked one up for my new XT-22, and while I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, it is a huge step up from the $70 Centerpoint on my 795.

I looked at quite a few scopes in the $125-$200 range when I was shopping for this and the Nikon just seemed to be waaay brighter, clearer, and sharper than most of the others I looked at.

Any of the Weaver Rimfire scopes are good.

Check out Natchezz and see whats on clearance. Nikon prostaff is killer for the $100ish range.

My first 10/22 still has the Tasco 2-7 that I put on it in 1989, thousands of rounds all over the state and has never lost zero, but I think Tasco was better 20 years ago. The last rimfire scope I bought is a Nikon Rimfire 3-9x40 and that scope is great. Not sure you can beat that scope for the money.

+1 I have one on my rifle and it is great! It increased my accuracy immensely.

I just upgraded from a norinco 3-9x40 to a nikon prostaff of the same specs.
I was surprised to say that IT WASN'T a night and day difference!
The norinco has served me well for years and i decided to buy a nicer scope since ive been squirreling lately.
Installing and sighting it in was easy, the nikon is nice but it isnt all that clearer or extra special in any way!

+1 to the Nikon rimfire 3-9 BDC 150. Really like mine.

I have used the BDC reticle to hit ground squirrels out to 125 yards while is very good for a stock 10/22!

For your budget I think UTG scopes would do the job. Their 3-9x compact scope is pretty neat.

About the only halfway decent rimfire scopes in the $50-100 range are Simmons 22 Mag scopes. A nice step up are Weaver Classic Rimfire scopes like the RV4 or RV7 or Nikon's Prostaff rimfire scopes and Prostaff based P22 tacticool rimfire scopes.

I have the Simmons .22mag scope on my takedown. Love it...works perfectly with a little picatinny rail up there and a quick release mount. Whenever I assemble it at the range everyone looks at me like I'm James Bond.

You might also consider the Mueller 4 x 12. It is very sharp. Bought a used CZ with one and liked it so much I immediately bought another scope for my 10/22. The parallax feature works well, too.

Look at the Leupold VX-1 2-7X. I have an old VX-II 2-7X and it rocks. Very light and compact, yet rugged.
