    Hi,
    I have the remington 597 .22 rifle. I was wondering if anyone can suggest a good scope for under $50. I know there are some decent ones out there for under that just looking for some suggestions.
    ANY AND ALL SUGGESTIONS ARE WELCOME

    The rings that come with it are for the normal "tip-off" rails machined into most 22 receivers.

    I have a Simmons .22Mag scope on my Ruger 77/22. I have been happy with it and the price is reasonable. It is a 4x scope, which is all you need for a .22, and is available through Cabelas, Bass Pro, etc.

    What kind of magnification are you looking for? I've put a BSA 3-12x airgun scope on my Savage MKII - works great. It's not sub $50 - but you should find one for around $70. I'd check some of the scopes on the walmart web site.

    Pretty much anything made for a pellet rifle (spring powered).
    Most of them have way more kick than a .22

    The absolute best .22 scope for the money is Nikon's ProStaff .22 Classic 4X that comes with a superb set of rings for grooved receivers, but it's twice what you are wanting to spend. Huge eye relief, outstanding optics.

    Hey Steve
    When I bought my 597 it came with a 3x9 x 32 that is made by Remington and so far so good with the scope very accurite... now if I can just the rifle back from Remington getting the ejector fixed ill be back in business.
