looking for a simple AO scope budget max $ usage is shooting upto a max of abt 75 yards.the rifle is very old and i can only use subsonic ammo.want a good  field of view weatherproof rails are 16 mm so please also suggest good high mounts.

You can buy the CZ or Warne mounts in 16mm. They're one of the best .22 bolt action rifles ever made. They deserve at least a half pie decent scope.

A Nikon Prostaff Rimfire Riflescope, 4x32mm would be ideal, slightly over your budget at $110.

My Brno Model 1 was made in 1950 and shoots CCI Mini Mag .22 ammo under 0.5"for 5 shots.

Just reading your post again. I'm intrigued why you would consider your Brno Model 1 only safe with subsonic ammo. The early Brno rifles have very strong machined actions; a lot stronger and certainly better made than the vast majority of .22 rifles available today. The barrels were made with Electro Poldi steel which is extremely hard.
