10/22 Glass

15 posts in this topic

Looking for a scope to throw on my new Ruger 10/22. Was looking at a few, but sort of had my eye on a Nikon ProStaff 3-9x40. I have a Nikon Buckmaster on my 243 and love it. Anybody have any info on the ProStaff's?Other scopes I looked at were:Bushnell Banner 3-9x40 Hawke Optics Endurance 3-9x40Burris Rimfire 3-9x40Thoughts suggestions or comments on which scope?The 10/22 is mainly gonna be used for plinking, and occasionally on squeakers...

We got a special purchase on these scopes HAWKE SPORT HD 3 X 9 - 40 RIFLESCOPE WITH MIL DOT RETICLE and it would be perfect for your 10/22. At $49.95 it is a total steal. I have shown guys this scope, let them examine and sight through it and they guessed the price at $200.00 plus. They were amazed when I told them the price. No joke. It is a sweet scope at a rock bottom price.

Thats the scope I have on my 243, think its a little overkill for my 22. I want something with lower magnification. I was wondering what the clarity difference is between the buckmasters and the prostaff models...

novaman, I have 3 10-22s. One with a nikon pro staff 4.5x 14 and tricked out with barrel/trigger and stock and it shoots 2 inch groups at 100 yards and I don't shoot it that often. the other 2 have red dot scopes made by tru glow, they are only 70 bucks and at 75 yards I can bounce cans with every shot. for plinking I love the red dot scope because they have quick target aquisition and good acuracy under 100 yrds which is perfect for a 22

I just put a 22RF model 1" tube 4X scope on my 10/22 and it has done what I ask of it. If I want to shoot 200yards I get out my 204ruger with a 6.5X20 or a 223 with a 8X32 or one with a 4X or larger caliber rifle/pistol.

What ever you choose, don't get a cheap POS just because its going a rim-fire gun. the scope still needs to have repeatable adjustments and turrets that are reliable. I would suggest a Bushnell 3200 elite. The come in both 10 power fixed and and a 5x-15x variable. it tracks through out its adjustment range and will pass the box test time and again.

Just an FYI. Finally got a scope, been huntin all over the internet trying to figure out what to buy, ended up picking up a Nikon Buckmaster 3-9x40 used for $130 OTD. So now I'll have a Buckmaster 3-9x40 on my 22lr, and a Buckmaster 4.5-14x40 on my 243. Now all I need to do it build a long range gun, and get a Buckmaster 6-18x40. hahaha

I mounted a 3-9x40 ProStaff on my .243 and have no complaints.

BSA makes one called the "Sweet 22". Skip it. In fact, skip anything made by BSA. Total junk. IMHO
