Hi all. I have one of the first T/C .22 Classics ever made in 2000 and It's never been fired. I'm anxious, finally, to scope it and give it a test run. I've used the Leupy Rimfire 2-7X and I like them, but they cost about $230. Is there a better value scope out there that would fit my needs? I like fine crosshairs like the Leup has. Will be used mostly for target shooting at 25-100 yds.
 
Thanks in advance.

  +1 on the Weavers.  Although I don't have experience with this scope I do have Sightron scopes and LIKE them:

The Weavers are always a good choice for rimfire. I would also look at the Vortex Crossfire. They have great pricing too.

Save ur money. Get a BSA .22 special. 4x32mm.

"These scopes are engineered especially for .22 caliber rifles and airguns. Scopes have fully coated optics, duplex reticle and 1" tube. Matte finish, fogproof, shockproof and waterproof. Comes complete with rings."

I mounted this on my squirrel gun. Works incredible, and only costs about $40. Buy it, you won't regret.

I bought a Rimfire 2x7 Weaver Classic on the recommendation of this forum.  My experience is it is quite good but has some limitations as a hunting scope.  Here's my post over in the Rimfire section of this forum...
 
""Ordered a Weaver Rimfire 2x7 a few months back, had it out squirrel hunting a couple of times and to the range several times as well.  It is a replacing a Sightron SII 4x, which I liked a lot but wanted to try something with higher magnification as an option and a wider possible field of view (for when those tree rats are upclose and scampering away through the brush).
 
I like the Weaver, both the wider field of view and the higher magnification have been useful hunting--though I also have some reservations.  It's a little dimmer and less clear than the Sightron, when set on 4x.  I wish it was x32 rather than x28.  I'm not yet used to the wider black circle around the field of view, which the Sightron lacks.  I've also had problems with sunlight glinting off the crosshair, for example, this morning with the sun low, in front and to my left, the left horizontal crosswire and the thick part of the lower vertical crosswire were glinting gold enough that I could not see my targets.  It looked like it was the edges of the crosswires reflecting.  The only other scope I had with me was a Leupold M8 6x and its crosshair stayed true black.  (The weaver's view is much sharper than the Leupolds, when set on 6x).
 
I've heard the Weaver highly praised.  Anyone had a similar problem with the duplex?  I'm kind of on the fence about this scope.  That glinting might be a deal breaker, it was pretty pronounced.""

I can't post it in the for sale section on here yet as I don't have enough posts. However, I have it for sale on other sites. If interested I have a 2-7x33 Leupold VX-I I'm trying to sell.
