For anybody with experience with these, what's your verdict?
 
I have a CZ 452 Military trainer 22LR.  It is space challenged in scope mounting room.  Those irons can't be taken off, and I don't think I would remove them if I could.  It is sort of entertaining to play pop rocks with the irons set at 200 meters.  That said, I very rarely will take the scope off.  This rifle was a "Spring Ground Squirrel Special" at a local spot with a package price on the rifle, a Simmons 22 Mag 4x32 scope, and a big box of your choice bulk ammo.
 
This is a scary accurate little rifle.  The Simmons mostly is an OK scope considering the price, so I really have little complaint with it.  It can be real particular to have the squirrel vanish from the view if I have on the wrong sunglasses, there is a bit of tunnel vision with it, and the reticle is a bit thick.
 
I tried a Burris Compact 2-7x28 I have as a spare.  That has some problems and really needs to go off to Burris for a clean and inspect trip.  The scope is the perfect size for this rifle.
 
I did a search for 22 rimfire scopes and came across the Tru Glo Compact 4x32 rimfire scope.  What twigged my interest is the length is the same as the Burris, so would fit in the space on my CZ just fine.  I also have no particular need for more than 4x on a 22 LR.  The price is attractive, but as I have never seen one, it may be no better than the Simmons for all I know.  So any input from users of this scope will be appreciated. Big Smile
 
Another scope of interest is the Kruger TacDriver 4x32, but it is the same length as the Simmons and I'd like a little shorter scope, in the neighborhood of 10 inches.

That's a fine accurate rifle that deserves a really good scope. If it were mine it would wear one of these four. Don't let the price fool you the Weavers are excellent scopes.

I have a Sightron SII 4X scope that is a "little" dandy. Currently, it's on my Winny 1300 slug gun. I'm not sure if Sightron still offers it, but I'll bet one could be located. Check into that also.Big Grin

To be a little clearer, the Weaver 4x has always been at the top of my short list.  Besides that I had been considering a Nikon Prostaff.  The Leupold is also an option.  Before I did the search I had no idea that TruGlo offered a rimfire scope, nor was I aware that Kruger had a rimfire.  I have watched Kruger putting together scopes at their facility in Sisters, Or and was aware of their scopes, just not that they had a rimfire.

So the purpose was just to satisfy my curiosity and see if anybody had used either of these, not talk me out of them Big Smile.
