Any 10/22 fans out there maybe can help me out...

I plan on getting a Ruger 10/22, it would be my first rifle, and just want to get an idea on scope options... and what mount/rings/scope combinations should I consider. I'm after quality! The range I'd be shooting will probably be 25 to 100 yards. The particular 10/22 model I'm looking at is the 10/22VLEB, and it has an 16.12 Heavy Hammer-Forged Barrel, over all length of 34 1/2", and weighs 6.8 lbs. I don't know the "science" behind scopes so I included the specs just in case they play a roll. Thanks for any suggestions.

I probably should have created this in the rimfire section... woops! If it can be moved over, please do.

Folks over on RimfireCentral like Mueller APV scopes.

I do too.

And Burris Signature Zee rings.

I always liked a very fine crosshair for my 10/22s . You can really get alot of accuracy out of those rifles.
Have Fun!!!

If you are going to scope a 10/22 look into using see through rings. The best of both worlds...

ASKED the rimfirecentral folks for their input and that is the product.

I recommend picking up a weaver style base and some burris signature zee rings. The scope depends on your purpose. Here are some of my favorites:

1) Nikon 4x rimfire----great for all around plinking and hunting
2) Leupold VX I 2x7 rimfire----great all around plinking and hunting
3) Leupold VX II 4x12 AO----great for target use (fine crosshairs)
4) Leupold VX II 3x9 AO rimfire-----good all purpose, but I think it may have fine crosshairs
5) Nikon Buckmasters 4.5-14 or 6-18 with AO-----more for target shooting and long range hunting--- can't remember for sure, but think it has the standard nikoplex

There are other great scopes like the weaver 3x9 rimfire with AO as well as the weaver 4x16 with AO. Like someone said, the Meullers seem to be gaining in popularity.

If you are shooting for fine accuracy or long range, the ones that turn up to 9, 12, 16, or even 18X are good. Fine cross hairs are great for target shooting but not so good for woods use. AO is necessary for high magnification at close range since most rimfire scopes are set to be parallax free at 50 to 60 yards.

For me, quality starts with an "L" (Leupold) or "N" (Nikon), but I know there are other good ones out there as well.

The bottom line: Do your homework, decide what suits your needs best, and go from there----Good luck!!

Burris Zee medium rings, holding a Muller APV, is a great setup. I'm a long time RFC member and the Mueller is one of our favorites.

I went with the BSA Sweet 22 on my Ruger 10-22 and love it. It's fun to challenge yourself with the accuracy at 100+ yards.

(snip)I'm with Kentucky Shooter on choices #2, #3, or #4; good glass, all. IMO, the larger scopes tend to visually overpower the shorter guns, so unless you really want/need a big variable, I think the Leupold 2-7x Rimfire Special (#2, above) is the best choice. This is what it looks like on my heavy-barrel 10/22 (w/Burris rings):

This is the same scope on my 10-22 (Leupold 2-7x28 rimfire matte finish), I love it and think that it really balances out the rifle.

I decided to go with a Nikon 4x32 classic, hope I made a good decision, or at least, good enough for what I plan on doing with it. Thanks for all the suggestions!

Sounds good, make sure you post a pic when it's done.

Will do, hopefully I can figure out how to mount it and sight it properly.

Kinda pricey but you plan on going beyond 50 yrds I would suggest one of these.

If you like the mil-dot

Or just regular crosshairs

I sure hope I mounted it right... just eye balled it straight as I could...and put the rings on the edge of the mount... felt it looked better that way.
And, I tighten up the screws to "tight" but of course not as hard as I could, hopefully it will hold.

http://i44.tinypic.com/2ch01he.jpgA fine looking rig! And I agree with you on the ring placement; that's the way I do it on similar ring/base setups. It also makes it easy to see if the rings begin to slip forward on the base due to the repeated recoil cycles.

Very nice rifle, but keep in mind that 10/22's are very social and tend to do better when kept in groups of 4 or more. Best to separate the males from the females though.

I put a Weaver V-16 on my latest 10/22 rebuild, with a Rimfire Technologies Quantum barrel and Rhineland Arms Leopard stock.

That is one incredibly crystal-clear scope, that's for sure! :cool:

LOL, I've got two, a third one keeps popping into my head... once you do a "build" there are so many options out there. I've heard though that you must keep them in even numbered groups or they're not happy...:rofl:
