Just picked this up today. My goal is to get  more trigger time on a budget.

I need help on base and a scope for this set up. 
Prefer a pic type base. Would like to keep the iron sites usable. 
Scope, I am thinking a lower powered maybe 2 by 7. Input and suggestions welcome.

Will be used on small critters.

As a trainer my SS will sit on it.

Maybe the Vortex Diamondback or  Weaver rimfire. Weaver is definitely lighter. Both have parallax of 50 yards I believe. Not sure how the glass compares since i Have not seen them. I know the weaver has a lot of followers.

How much are you wanting to spend?

Not sure what you mean in the second part you say you are thinking of a low powered but then say your SS will sit on it?

Yea I was little confused by that too. Is it a hunter or trainer or both.  It was worded as if you already have a SS scope ready to put on it.
If you dont have one and wanted a hunting one SS6x might be good for one. Gonna be a bit heavy scope for a walking critter gitter.

Money Less than 200.

Clarification on SS:
I see a 22 fitting 2 roles for me. One is a light weight critter killer. Low power scope for quick handling and plinking around.

I also see me using it as an aid to practice long range shooting. Lots of dialing in elevation and doping wind cheaply. Granted I will only have to stretching it out to maybe 200 to practice. Trigger time is trigger time. Since I use a mil dot scope on my 308 I figure I would put my ss on it when I am doing that. Now I am thinking of trading in my 16 x on maybe a 6x for that purpose. Not sure yet.

SVT thanks for the bases. I think I will go with the weaver that way I can use my quick release rings and still use the sights.

Now has anyone used the Diamondback Rimfire. I like Vortex. I understand I might have to use their CS on the Diamondback. I like their vipers.

Ok I decided to go with the 2-7 crossfire rimfire. I got a good deal. Glass is decent for the price. At least I know I have a great warranty if I ever need it. Ordered my Base and rings from SWFA. Must admit I could not wait to test it so I bought some really cheep 22 rings to mount it and try Saturday. I was able to get my Iron sights zeroed. And test the scope. I was impressed with this little cheep rifle. It will be a lot of fun.

I guess an update is in order. It is broken in now and shoots real well. Read up on a few things to do to it and have had no problem. Very stiff trigger. But all in all I think it is a good rifle and scope combo for the money.
