Re: colt 22 target scope recomendations
The rings are Leopold aluminum. I used the "high" rings only because I didn't want to remove the rear sight. No big deal in removing the rear sight I just didn't want to do it. The advantage of removing the rear sight would have been the ability to use lower height rings bringing the scope down nearer the top of the barrel which would probably be desirable. These rings are what are called "Weaver Style" as they have a cross bolt that prevents the rings from shifting on the base. They do require a "Weaver Style" base to accommodate the cross bolt. You can see those cross grooves in the photo. Depending on your use 4x might be more magnification than you would want for a handgun. Personal preference comes into play.
I think Burris is one of the better scope manufacturers but they are higher in price. Again persona preference. I have several lower cost scopes, Tasco and BSA on some .22lr rifles and have had no problem with them what so ever.
