I was digging through the gun closet at my parents house and came across the Remington nylon 66 that my grandfather gave me for my 10th birthday in 1987.

As a kid, I remember always wishing the gun had a scope on it, so I wanted to see it done before I pass the gun to my son. And yes, I am aware of the potential issues with the nylon 66's tendency to allow the scope to move from its zero.  .

Notwithstanding, I'd like to use a period-correct scope (from the late 80s) that would have normally been used on this firearm. I was thinkin maybe a 2-7x japanese-made tasco, but I truly have no clue.

Any suggestions, prefereably specific models or particular ways to tell they are from this era?

Also, what about rings?--I'm guessing weaver tip-offs.

One of the best vintage 22 scopes is a Weaver V-22 3-6 You can find them consistently on Ebay. They sold for $22 in 1970. The V-22 has a large eye box. It comes with rings. that fit the 7/8" tube.

It's got plain crosshairs and has some black garbage ( looks like a spider or something...) hanging down right at the edge of the view at 11:00 o'clock.....it ain't in the way, however.....
