Hey guys I've finally bitten the bullet and decided on the CZ classic, I was going to go with the Bushnell Banner 4-12x40 but went with the Bushnell Trophy 4-12x40, its on layby so it's not too late if this is a mistake, what do you think. I was told the trophy was the way to go because it has Japanese optics is there any truth in that or should I change the order???

I have the American 22LR with a Weaver 3-9x33 and my son's scout has the 2-7
both Weaver rimfire classics
very happy with both scopes and the guns
little tackdrivers they are
I can literally drive thumbtacks at 50 yards with either one with bulk ammo

I did the Eric Brooks trigger kit to both

they are nice, nice guns
also had a 17HMR American Varmint...

Yes I've thought about the Weaver scopes they seem like good value for money, Does anyone use the Nikon Monarch? I was thinking if I REALLY wanted to spoil myself I could get one. But would have to order online as I cant find a dealer in Australia, but they seem like a good scope!!!

Yeah I know what you mean its a bit awkward the way it works at the back of the bolt, but I think it would be more reliable than a traditional one that goes on the side of the action.

I'd be careful with the Monarch. The CZ's bolt my not clear the new Monarchs massive ocular housing, unless you are using high rings.
The Monarch is an excellent scope in it's own right though.

I have yet to see a CZ rimfire that didn't shoot very well!

I have a Burris Fullfield II 3-9x on my .17 HMR and like it very much, partly because of the Ballistic Plex Reticle. No trouble mounting it in the CZ rings.

Dont laugh but has anyone tried the Nikko Nighteaters, Ive heard for a cheap scope that they're not that bad. And since it will only be going on a .22 I'm not that concerned with shock damage, also most of the target shooting I will be doing indoors anyway. So should I save my dollars or not be a tight ass and fork out for a decent scope, take into accoutn that scopes are alot dearer here in Australia, but of course I joined this forum for voices of expieriance so don't be shy!!!

Several years ago I saw a replacement safety for them in Brownells catalog that would change the direction to forward to fire.  They were Case Hardened (!!) and needed to be fit by a gunsmith.  I have not seen them anymore in the catalog.  Has anybody got any information about these??

I have a Nighteater 6x36 on my Savage Mk2F 22LR and no problems so far. Was a package deal, other scope option (at the same price) was a Tasco 3-9x40 and the Nighteater was in another league optically.

If you're using it for bunny-busting etc I don't see any reason to go for a bigger variable magnification scope, you'll get much better glass for any given price from a fixed. 6x is plenty for rabbits in open country, longest range I've taken one at was 105m (free standing with subsonic ammo). No idea what is generally used for target shooting though.
