I mistakenly posted this over in the Rifle Scope section earlier today. I got a couple of replies from centerfire shooters. Just wanted to know opinions of either the 3-9 or 4-12 for plinking, hitting paper up to 150 yds., 200 if I thought  I might be able to do so w. a .22 lr. It's quite a bit of $ for a .22 scope and heavy as well, but if I decide to go 4-12 I don't really see anything else out there in a rimfire scope at this price range/quality. Am I missing anything that might be just as good and less costly. Thanks.

Well, if you can live without the Ballistic Plex, you could get the Weaver 3X9X32 AO scope. It is supposed to be a really good scope according to what everyone says!    --Ed

I appreciate the input. The .22 I want to scope is a 50 yr. old Marlin 81 DL that has always had a peep sight. It's also drilled/tapped on the side of the receiver for what Marlin calls a target disk that they no longer make--whatever that is. I've since talked to several gunsmiths who claim it might be a bit of a challenge to put a full-size (28-33 mm) scope on this gun and still have it centered over the bore. Weaver supposedly makes a #2 sideplate that might work. I'm gonna have to do a bit more study to see what my options are. I have a 3-9x32 Bushnell Banner that has a bullet-drop compensator with one blank dial I may be able to set up for a .22--the other dials are for my 30-06 and .222. But I figure I may want to go with a more powerful scope for the .222 for shooting paper at long range so moving it over to the .22 wouldn't be a great loss. The choice of a scope for the .222 will be a matter for a future study and post. If I can get that Banner on the .22, and that is a big if,  I think I might try it. But I'll have to see. It's a very well preserved gun, and I really doubt I'd like the Weaver sideplate simply because it would distract from the aesthetics of the Marlin. It's not an expensive rifle, but it shoots pretty well, so I want to keep it looking as good as I can. I was 3 when mom bought that gun for dad and I remember her buying it just like it was y'day.

Good idea. I would buy another .22 when funds permit and be very happy with the Marlin as is.
Looking forward to your post on glass for your .222.

Yes, that's a good idea....leave the gun alone and buy yourself another. You'll spend money on gunsmithing that could buy you a whole new scope.
