    Ive got two Center Point Scopes on my Marlin 60 and the Ruger 77/22lr and so far, not one single problem with either of them.
    I like the Mil-Dot IR and the furthest I've been able to shoot both was at 250yds accurately. (no wind) Ran out of mil-dots at 250yds. For up close to longer ranges, I'm sold on them and the price. ($55) And also, if you have any problem with them, send them back and they will send you a new one, great service!

    I had one a few years back that I sent back and no questions asked...For a .22 and for the price..I have no complaints.

    I have a Bushnell 3x-7x Custom .22 scope that I use on my Marlin M-1 .22 and my Rem. Nylon 66. It's an older scope so I'm not sure of its availability. I am sure, however, you should pick one up if ever found. Perfect size and magnification. Eye relief is limited however, and you will need to get used to it. Is marked 18mm Japan on bottom. Good hunting!

    Another vote for the Centerpoint scopes from WallyWorld.

    Cheap, come with rings and covers, surprisingly clear optics,
    illuminated mil-dot reticles. I've got a couple of them, and
    no problems at all.

    I was just thinking about the BSA Sweet 22 3-9x40AO. Would you reccommend that or should I just go with the Centerpoint with a mil dot reticle? I like the mil dot reticle :) but I also like the way you can adjust the BSA 22 Sweet:). What's your opinion?:dontknow:

    If you look around, you can find the BSA Sweet .22 for $40. Try Amazon. In my opinion you can't go wrong, you will just be out $40 bucks, if you don't like it.

    i use an aimsports 2.5-10x40mm on my scoped .22
    it has a dual illuminated (red or green with 5 brightness settings for each) mil dot reticle and a 5mW green laser. set me back $100.

    i love it. i zeroed it in @ 50yrds with the bullet drop compensator (it's calibrated for 5.56, with 5 presets) set on 1. i can turn it to 3 and hit a gopher's head @ 100yrds... turn it all the way to 5 and i can hit a 6" target @ 200yrds 10 shots out of 10, even in the wind.

    Thanks for all the info. I have been meaning to scope my Savage 64 and this was some great advice. :) Cliff

    Ya'll stop it.. You guys are making me want to get 3 new scopes. I just put a Simmons 4x32 .22 scope on my Marlin 60, a Tru-Glo 4x32 on my S&W 15-22, and a UTG 4x32 on my AR15. Now I'm wanting something with zoom and AO on all of them. Man I shouldn't have read this thread.

    I don't see the need for a variable power scope on a .22. This fixed 4X Bushnell does all I need it to do.

    i like mine being overscoped... for the same reasons that old semperfi mentioned. "i do not need a spotting scope to see my hits."

    honestly, i find nothing more annoying than some inconsiderate moron at the range trying to sight in his scope on his $1000+ deer rifle in a 20mph crosswind and wanting to walk 200 or 300 yards downrange every 3 shots because he or she is too inconsiderate to buy or bring a spotting scope... ESPECIALLY when i have to pay $10 to use the range.

    Other than CAS I've never been to a range.

    Next time use your scope to help him zero it in. It will be faster than letting him walk down range every three shots.

    i usually hand them my good set of binoculars after the second time. if they seem like reasonable folk. but i only have one set of good binoculars that can see clearly out far, my other pair is only about 4x scope.

    i like your style. :)

    Both of my 10/22's have Weaver R7's, 2 - 7. I have another I will put on my 581 Rem. Great scopes for the money. About $135 - 140. $90. when I bought the first two

    I broke down today after this thread, and went to Walmart and picked up two CenterPoint 4-16x40AO scopes. One for my S&W M&P 15-22 and one for the CORE15 .223. I must say tho, those things are heavy scopes.
