Hi guys -

 

I need some advice on a good scope for a fine new 22LR - i am getting a Savage Model MARK II-BV  .22 LR

Mark-II Rimfire Series Model MARK-II-BV

i want to do some quality shooting in the off season to work my trigger finger and wanted a 22 w/ a good trigger

and great accuracy.  I haven't found any bad press on the above rifle OR the new accutrigger. i'm excited to say the least.

 

anyway, my intention is to spend about 500-600 bucks total on gun and glass - i am spending 230 on the gun so do the math.

what is the BEST scope (and rings) that i can buy for shooting a 22 all season at paper and varmints at 50 & 100 yrds.

 

i look forward to your replies.  i AM intrigued by the burris fullfield 3x9x40.

 

THANKS>

 

J

Johnny, are you thinking you want to stay with a 3-9?

I think that would more than enough magnifacation.

I'd save some money and get the Weaver 2-7X28.  I put one on my Remington 504 and am very happy with it.

I think you'll want a rimfire scope.  I tried several 100 yd parallax rifle scopes and didn't like them because most of my shooting was 50yds or less.

Kahles 2-7x36 American Hunter Rimfire on the sample list for 449.95. Good glass but a little over your budget.

 

I've always liked the leupold EFR's when it comes to rimfire scopes.

Leupold 3-9x33 VX-II Rimfire E.F.R.

 

Weaver would be my next choice.

 

Do you know if the base supplied with the rifle is 3/8" or 5/8"?

i assume that it's a 3/8" base.  i will try and find out. the website doesn't say.

 

thanks for the input - would the 28mm weaver be good enough in the lowlight?

 

9x would be plenty at 50-100yrds wouldn't it? and if i buy a rimfire scope's parallax is set at 50 or 60 yrds - will that affect POI at 100?

 

THANKS

The Savage is a fine choice. I agree with Mwyates, if you want crystal clear image quality you are going to have to go with a scope that corrects for parallax down to ten yards. Your other choice is to go with a rimfire scope that is factory adjusted to be parallax free at generally 50 yards. On my Marlin 880sq. sits a BSA contender 4-16 that is adjustable to 10 yards. The glass is not very good but with a rimfire most of your shots will be at 50 yards or less and the quality of glass is not that percivable. My winchester 69a wears a old Burris 4x mini with A/O. The optical quality and handling of a small scope makes it a dream to go stalking tree rats with. Start out with the Burris signature rimfire rings and work your way backwards to the scope. You are going to have to make your choice if you will be sitting down at a bench with a heavy set-up and big glass or if you want to be able to carry the rifle for a long period of time and go with somthing more compact. Rember that the savage is no lightweight to begin with. let us know which way you want to go.

i don't mind the weight -

 

my 30.06 w/ a zeiss is around 10 lbs!!! love it.

 

it's steady as they come. not so much me, hehehe.

 

what about the weaver adjustibles? 3x9x32 w/ a/o - would that be a good choice @ 200 bucks?

 

i don't mind weight, so let this broaden the choices.  i also wouldn't mind a compact quality scope either.

 

thanks for the input, guys.  rimfire is not my forte. but i am working on it.

Before buying the new Weaver (made by meade) I would have to hold it in my hands and inspect it for quality. Some of the reports have been shotty at best on meades recent take overs. Hopefully someone will chime in that has more expirence with spending that kind of money for a rimefire scope. My BSA was won at a highpower rifle match. The Burris was purchased used, for a song and dance. Both perfectly adquate.

if so, i am skeptical.

 

thanks.

I would suggest you take a look at Sightron S2 3-9x36AO rimfire scope..  It's a great little scope and with the adjustable objective you can always correct for parallax.  Burris series of rimfire and airgun scopes is also quite good and has a few models to choose from.

Absolutely.  Just make sure you get the S2, not S1.

I got my Weaver back in August.  The box says made in Japan.  It's a good scope for $130.  I liked it better than the Burris and better than the Simmons 3-9X32 AO.  It's not a Kahles Rimfire or a Leupold EFR, but I wouldn't expect it to be.  It works fine at 100 yds for me.  A scope with parallax set at 100 probably won't work fine at 50yds and definitely won't at less.

The Weaver is a very nice scope, especially for its pricetag.  Sightron S2 is better, but it is also more expensive.  I was going off of the price range that johnbravado provided.

On I rifle like that Savage, I think I would go with an AO, too. That is a target rifle and you'll want dime size groups and parallax adjustment will be needed at the 25 and 50 yard lines. On the other hand I've been using a 4X B&L Balfor on a 10-22 for years. This scope is set @ 100 yards and 25 yard head shots on coons are no problem.

Nikon Buckmaster is a pretty nice scope.  Sightron S2 has better glass (about on par with the Monarch), but for the same configuration it is more expensive.

Whether 14x is overkill, that's a personal choice.  For me it would be a bit much.

If you're looking at Burris, have you considered the E1 model, etched recticle looks pretty cool and gives a clearer view without the crosshairs continuing all the way accross the glass.
