I wanted to get a scope for a 10/22 that my girlfriend shoots when we go to the range to punch paper. I currently have a Bushnell 2-9X32 rimfire scope on it. she shoots it pretty well at 50 yards. But has trouble with it at 100yards. She has complained about having trouble seeing thru the scope at 9X. Sometimes the image is real small or off center unless she gets her eyeball positioned just right.  I think it was $20 with rings. So I wanted something that is a bit more forgiving in regards to eye position.

I’ve read a few reviews on the Nitrex that have said it is a great scope, but somewhat picky about eye position. I’ve read that the sightron’s are very easy to see thru. I’d like to pick up a scope that is on sale to get the most bang for my dollar. And I might mount this on a marlin lever action chambered in 44mag every once in a while. I don’t have a preference of reticles.

I was thinking about a Bushnell banner 4-12x40 with AO. They are about $100. And I’ve shot one. And think they are OK. But, I’ve bought a banner recently that was defective and dread buying another Bushnell product after trying to dealing with their CS.

Any opinions on a hot deal on a scope?

Try one of Vortex Diamondback scopes.

When I did the testing, it was the best scope for $200.  Here is a link to the article:

demo_slug,
 
I have scopes from 2 1/2-10X Tasco (on my .223 deer rifle) clear up to a 12-42X56 NightForce (for sale for $1050).  As far as I am concerned I would put a Tasco 4-16X world class on the 10/22.  Oh, wait a minute.  That's what I have on my 10/22 I also have a tack driver Remington model 34.  I had to have the receiver drilled and tapped for scope mounts.  It has a 6-24X Tasco.
 
Niether of the above scopes cost over $100.

diamondback x3, my local cabelas had one in the bargain cave for 159 and it looked great.

On a side note I find it funny burris claims 99% light On ff2, and vortex only claims 90% and offers a superior product. props to the more honest manufacturer

I just put a Burris Timberline 4.5-14X32 scope on a Marlin 982 .22 WMR. I know, it's not made as a rimfire scope and is intended for short-mag centerfires. I just mounted it a little forward from normal, and it works fine. You have AO without that big objective, high rings, etc. that tend to overpower the looks of a rimfire, especially a lever action. And, you have more magnification than, say, the (very good) Weaver 3-9X AO rimfire.

Actually recently there was one of the diamondbacks on the sample list. There was also a leupold rimfire listed there too for under $200 as well as a sightron 2-7x32 sii .   For new scopes for a 22 I like the size & weight of the burris timberlines and the redfield 2-7x32 which are well within your price range. Weaver also makes a nice rimfire scope for under $200.

 Although Burris scopes are good,Burris seems to beef up their stats.  Eye relief and % light being two.

Thanks.

 

So after thinking thru this, what she will really enjoy is more Zoom. Along with an easy eye box. And I’ll just buy a nice little hunting scope for my marlin in a few months. I'll start a new thread.
