.22 cal scope.

I need a new scope for my 22. The one I have is a 2-7 power. It isn't bright enough at dusk, nor do I like the magnifaction. Seems weak when you are pushing 200 yards.


I am open to suggestions, and no, I am not interested in spending a pile of money.

Keep it under $100.

    Just throwing out some names of less expensive stuff I've used, around $100.00 I think - Mueller, Konus, Intensity, Brunton and Pentax. EABCO is running a sale on scopes of the 4 to 14 power.

    Just picked up a 4x32 Bushnell Banner Dusk/Dawn. $65 at Academy. Passed on the comparable 4x32 Nikon which was $40 more. Clarity was even but the crosshairs sold me.

    Out 200 yards? You must be shooting where there is no wind [:D]. That must be nice.

    Cheap I'd go with a NcStar. I got me (on my 10/22) 6X24-50 (I think it's them numbers). Any ways, I know it's too much scope but I had it laying around and it's about $100.

    Very happy with my Simmons WTC 6.5-20x50 w/ AO (focuses from 30 feet to infinity) on my 22 mag savage. Got a second one for my 22lr savage.

    I put a Simmons 4X12 air rifle on my 1022 HB I built.
    Very good scope, for the money, clear, good light.

    Well ideally what I want is something adjustable to 12X or so.

    I don't want a 50mm obective either. It will be too big to mount on my 22. I have a 40mm on my 17HMR and it is aweful big.


    I don't want to have special mounts machined.


    I need something that has good magnifaction, gathers light well in dusk situation, and will mount decent on my 22 Stevens.

    Do they make a 12X on a 32mm?

    I figure with a 12X the scope will be long (so you might be boned on a stock mount for your project). So good luck on your search.

    Tasco World Class! List is around $70.00. If you shop around you can get a much better deal than that.

    Just google around until you find a 12- 24X NightForce for under $100. Sheesh, you want a lot of optics for your measly $100.
