My sons bought me a Remington 597 22 cal rifle and a Barska Plinker scope. I bought a Remington mount but the Barska scope rings do not fit the mount, they are too small. I haven't heard anything good about Barska scopes and want to buy another scope. I don't know anything about rifle scopes and would appreciate some input on a good scope that won't cost a fortune. The rifle will only be used for target shooting.

Retired: Welcome to the forums....Ok, quick couple questions first what do you plan to do with the .22, target shooting compition or every day plinking?  How far will you be shooting? Also, what is your definition of a fortune?  Since Im sure Donald Trump would be fine with a $1, 300 Schmidt & Bender, basically everyone has a different limit as to what they want to spend.

I will be doing just target shooting/plinking when I go on my fishing trips. I guess I won't shoot more than 100-200 yards. The cost is really no problem, but I don't want to spend more for a scope than what the 597 costs. I figure 200.00 or less

You have a fine rifle and while a .22lr can be shot out to 200 yards, the accuracy is just not going to be there, at least should I say on a reproducible basis for the precision needed as compared to a .223 or 22-250 or 220 swift etc.  Therefore, a 3x9 40mm scope should be sufficient from a good company.  Any of the scopes listed below, should serve you well: - 323944M">Bushnell 3-9x40 Elite 3200 Rifle Scope Bushnell 3-9x40 Elite 3200 Rifle Scope
