New member here and I'm looking at an inexpensive scope and think I have narrowed it down to two; a BSA 3-9x40 sweet 22 or a Simmons 3-9x32 22 mag series.  Both have AO and both have been praised and bashed.  The rifle is a Remington model 5 and will be used for paper target shooting in the 50 foot to 50 yard range.  Can't justify much more money than these but could really use a scope as the eyes are getting a bit fuzzy .....

Of the two I would use the BSA.  I have had good luck with the Sweet223 I purchase a month or so ago and have abused it pretty good. It has held up fine.

I think either would be just fine, they are both inexpensive and should provide decent service on a rimfire.

Get the BSA http://swfa.com/BSA-3-9x40-Sweet-22-Riflescope-P42505.aspx
Hard to beat at 39.95 especially if your other option is a Simmons.

Boy, one for Simmons, two for BSA and one for either - you guys aren't making my decision any easier!  I know the BSA offered here is discontinued, not that it makes any difference and it appears that it does not come with rings - although it has the extra turrets for different ammo.  The Simmons comes with rings but can't be calibrated for different ammo with turret changes.  I'm still on the fence with this one, sometimes simple is better but sometimes extras are fun to have ..........
 
I almost picked up a Simmons 3-9x40 from a friend but it was not an AO scope, with my anticipated short distances, I think it would have caused me problems so I passed on it, however the scope was nice and bright and overall quality seemed good.  Thanks for all the replies .....

Don't think that the turrets are going to be perfect, mine arent but are decent.
