Hi again guys.

Further from my previous post..i have always had good luck with Simmons Scopes...my favourite was the WTC Expedition 4-12x42 which i had on my old .22lr and two air rifles........amazing low light scope for the price. I also had a 22magAO on another little air rifle and was quite happy with it, and once upon a time I had one of the older 44magAOs on a 22WMR, and although i didnt like the wide mildot reticle (for that calibre), it was still a very clear and well built scope.

So do i go for the devil i know, which is still the current model 22mag 3-9x32AO, or do I go for the newer side focus 44mag 4-12x44???

As stated in my previous thread...the rifle is a .22lr, shooting subs to 70 yards max, and almost always at dusk or at night......so light transmission is key.

Which would you choose???

I've looked at the .44 mag side focus for a rimfire also.  If you get it, will you post a review?
