I guess it depends on what you are going to use the .22 mag, T-Bolt for.  I would put a Leupold VX-2, 2-7x28  rimfire or VX-2 compct 3-9x32 scope on it.  The T-Bolt is a larger, heavier rifle than some rimfires and even would not look too off balance with a smaller 2.5-10x40.  I have a Winchester Model 63 and have a Leupold VX-II, 2-7x28 Rimfire on it.  The scope balances well with the rifle.

Thanks for your help. I went to look at some scopes today, and I'am leaning toward the Nikon Monarch 2.5x10x42.

The 22mag is a hunting/plinking cartridge not a target round and I wouldn't take anything much further than 100yds with one. So unless you are fairly sure that you're going to be maxing out the range I'd stick with a Weaver RV9 or maybe even an RV7. Parallax will be more of an issue at 50yds with a centerfire scope than at 100yds with a rimfire scope. On the other hand if you're after something really small at 150yds then maybe I'd look at a Weaver V16 or if money isn't an issue the Bushnell 4200 4-16x40.

The Nikon Monarch is really good, although I've heard that the threads were rough for some of the turret covers.  Excellent scope for the money

Sholling, are you saying that the Monarch 2.5 x 10x42 is to much scope for it?

Will the Monarch 2.5 x 10x42 be to much scope for the T-Bolt? Or do I need a rimfire scope?

First determine your own taste for magnification based on the application and your own individual needs eyesight wise. What is right for some may not be right for you. If what you are doing requires good magnification and you have need for eyesight purposes, then to some your rifle will be overscoped. There is also taste, the scope will do just fine on that rifle, so if it's what you want, go for it.

Not at all. I'm Saying that the fixed focus Monarch 2.5-10x42 rifle scope is optimized for a centerfire rifle. That means that it's set to be parallax free at 100yds (see below). A scope designed for a rimfire will be set to be parallax free at 50yds (60yds for a Leupold). Because parallax errors tend to show up more at short range you're more likely to have noticable point of impact issues at 50yds with a scope set for 100yds - than you will at 100yds with a scope set for 50. The best way to understand parallax and parallax correction is to read this explanation.

Most of the time people aiming a centerfire rifle through a hunting scope like that Monarch are shooting at medium to large critters at 50-250yds and parallax won't be an issue at those ranges with a critter with an 3-4" kill zone. If you're 1/2" off at 50yds because of a parallax error it's no big deal.

Those shooting rimfires are generally shooting at a really small target or critter at 25-100yds, call it 50-60yds on average and maybe with a 22mag reaching out to 150yds once in a great while. Remember that little tiny bullet is being blown all over the place by any kind of breeze.

EDITED for clarification:
To answer you're question of fixed-focus rimfire vs a fixed-focus centerfire scope - only you know what ranges you'll be shooting at. Read up on parallax and decide if it's going to be an issue for your planned usage. Just to clarify if you were a precision target shooter you would probably be using scope that allows you to adjust out parallax errors at any range. But that slows the shot too much for most hunters. The 3-9x Weaver RV9 and Leupold Rimfire E.F.R. allow you to adjust out parallax at any range. So would a higher magnification centerfire scope like a Bushnell 4200 4-16x40. Again it comes down to how you plan to use it.

Get the best bang for the buck in riflescope history.....the elite 4200 3-9x40 can be had for around $260.  Great glass, rainguard, and very, very tough.
