Are there any good  4x rimfire scope options besides the Leupold  4x rimfire...a classic I might add.

Really any 4x scope will work fine with low kick rounds like rimfires. I have a Sightron 4-16x42 on a target .22 and it works wonderfully.

While any scope will technically work on a rimfire, the problem is that a scope not designated for rimfire will almost always be parallax adjusted to 100 yds/meters.  A true rimfire scope is focused for 50 yds/meters -- typical rimfire shooting distances.  As magnification increases, parallax becomes more of a problem with centerfire scopes.

Very good point. The Sightron I mentioned is parallax adjustable. Although, truthfully parallax has never really been that much of an issue for me personally. I tend to keep my eye centered in the scope and am a moderate magnification fan.

About the best rimfire scope would be the Leupold 3-9 EFR. Lightweight, compact and very bright optics. Just set it on 4x and keep it there if you like. But you'll also the the option of increasing or decreasing the magnifaction. I got one a couple months ago. Better than the Weaver rimfire (which you really can't beat for the price) and the Burris.

The Leupold 4X rimfire is a fine scope optically and mechanically. The problem I have with it, and all the Leupy rimfire scopes, is the fine reticles. They aren't worth a damn in low light. I shoot coon after dark with spot lights and the fine just doesn't work.

If you don't have to worry about low light shooting I would not hesitate to get the Leupold 4X.
