I would like to teach my son to shoot with a scope. I need an inexpensive scope and mount.
Indoor short range shooting. slight magnification 2-4x

Are the small grooves standard on a .22?

The rimfire mount grooves are standardized at 3/8" on American made rimfire rifles. European rimfires may be 3/8" or 11mm depending on the rifle.

You will want a scope designed specifically for rimfires. Most rimfire scopes are set to be parallax free at 50yds. While a centerfire scope is usually set between 100-150yds depending on the brand. The thing is that many indoor ranges are only 25yds so parallax may still be a bit of an issue but should be livable. 

The real Cadillac of affordable rimfire scopes is the Weaver RV9 3-9x32 because it's adjustable for parallax but I'll assume that it's out of reach.

The scope that I like is the Weaver 2.5-7x28. It maybe a bit more than you planned on spending but it's well worth the money and I'd consider it a long term investment in quality.

The little Weaver Classix 4x28 Rimfire is a good little scope.

If you can't swing the Weaver then these cheap Bushnells aren't bad for what they are but I'd consider it a throw away scope and be thrilled to get a year or two out of it.

By the way you might check to see if they have an Appleseed event coming to your area. It's a great way for both of you to refine your technique and pick up some pointers.
