    Can I buy a decent scope for my 10/22 in the under 100 dollar range, or is that laughable?

    Bushnell rim fire scope at WalMart 69.99, Tasco 29.99:confused:

    ...yes sir, you can! At Wal'mert" you can get the Center Point 3-9x32, mil-dot, illum. recticle and for around $55.

    I have one on my Ruger 77/22-.22LR and it's a good scope!!!!

    yep. thats a good one for a .22. Another recommendation would be a BSA sweet .22 or a catseye, though the catseyes are every bit of a 100 bucks but they are on the level of scopes twice their price IMO.

    i have a 4 power tasco on my .22 and i get them bunnies everytime

    its 20+ year old though now ..

    Bushnell have slightly better optics and way better frames so they'll take a beating better than the tasco , you do get what you pay for but do you need that difference ? if rough on rifles and scopes yeah , if you aint save some bucks ..

    Heck yes you can Jackman. I don't have any pricey rifles and I don't have any pricey scopes on the rifles (all rim fire). I have a BSA on my 10/22, a Tasco Air Rifle scope on my Marlin 60 and another Tasco on my Winchester 9422. They have all worked fine for me. Are they as good as the Leupold? No but my Mercury is not as good as a BMW but it gets the job done. Of the dozen or so .22 rifles the Old Guys shoot there is not a scope there that cost over $100 and nobody is complaining. Only real problem is choosing which one to get, ha.

    Heres the catseye I got on my rem 5. I caught it on sale at Academy for 70 bucks. Its a 3-12X44 and has target turrets and a side focus as well as screw on lens caps. A bunch of scope for just 70 bucks..

    It is not as nice as the one Josh has but this is the BSA I have on my 10/22. I think it was on sale as a discontinued model for $59.00 at Natchez Shooters Supply or Optics Planet I can't remember (I know Bob it is an age thing, ha)

    thanks for the tip, I am somewhat rough with the cases in the trunk.

    my 10-22 is donating it's Tasco 3-9x40 to my wife's Savage mark II and I was looking for something better.

    Agree with Jack with the more tuffer with the Bushnell.
    I bought mine new at wmart a couple a years ago and it's still as good
    as the day I bought it...have mine on the '06.
    (have one just like it used waiting to go on a rifle)

    Here's a 10/22 scope mounting tip:

    Ruger investment casts most of their guns including the 10/22. This is not a precise machining operation (no machining operation at all!) and sometimes the top of the receiver comes out not exactly parallel to the bore. And sometimes it is so bad that you run out of scope elevation adjustment to zero the gun.

    The fix is the one pice base elevated as necessary on one end with steel shim stock. It does not take much thickness to make a big difference on the target. A little math, algebra, and geometry will tell you how much you need from the error in elevation on the target when the elevation adjustment is centered in the adjustment range (or nearly so).

    Thanks LD, that is just the kind of knowledge and information that makes this such a great forum.

    Good info makes sense, but too late for me we bought the two piece screw on base at WalMart 7 dollars, fit was perfect but we haven't got to the range to zero yet
