I have narrowed my scope choices for a Savage MK II .22 LR down to the Burris Timberline 4.5-14 x 32 or the 3-9 x 32 Weaver Classic. There is plenty of info on this forum about the weaver, but not the burris. If anyone has any experience with the timberline, especially on a rimfire application, your opinions would be appreciated.
I know the Burris is a short action scope, but I don't foresee any mounting difficulties with this rifle.

I think either will do the job. I just find the Timberline series fugly and have a lot of faith in the Weaver. You could also use a Weaver V16 for not a lot more money.

I have the Timberline 2-7x26 on a Marlin 917 - 17HMR. Even though the forward turrets look ugly they actually make for easy mounting on a rimfire. Great little scope with exceptionally clear glass for the price range. I have multiple Burris scopes an while they may not be the prettiest they function reliably and are built like tanks.
