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...

Definitely a good price. Whats the difference between the Endurance and the Sport HD?

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

Buckmaster scopes are good scopes for the money spent, it should serve you well.

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