10/22 Target Scope?

I know it's a worn out topic, but gaining input on scope choices always draws some good opinions, so I thought I'd float another thread on the subject. I decided to transform my 10/22 with a new .920 target barrel and stock, which means I should also switch out my 4x scope to something more appropriate for a target rimfire rifle. So, my only criteria is a 50mm objective. How 'bout some input boys...what do ya like out there?

I have a Mueller Eraticator on my 10/22 and I love it. It has 50mm obj. For the price Mueller scopes are great.

I believe centerpoint has a 6-24x50 or a 4-16x50. I'm sorry I don't know where you would get it, but I have to work shortly.....it's just that i can personally vouch for the durability, repeatability and ability to hold zero on three of their other products. I have the ar22 scope (intended for .22 rimfire, but rated for heavy recoil) on my mini 14. It did time on my 10/22 and my remington 581 before that. I have the 4-16x40 on my .308 and have shot over 750 rounds with it on there. It has great light gathering at dusk and dawn for deer stand hunting too. I have the tac-aim red dot also on my mini with qd rings to swap the scope with. It is the same deal...handles the mini action and works great. If you can find the 50mm objective version, I'm sure it will work great like the 40mm does for me on my .308.

Nikon is a great optic. I personally *LOVE* BARSKA optics for the price. Especially the ones with the illuminated center reticles. They are etched reticles and are very clear for the price!
I have a 10-40X50 Tasco world class on my ruger 10/22 TNZ and I can shoot the hairs off the mites on a fly's ass at 50 yards with it...
My only negative comment with the above mentioned centerpoints... is the metal wire crosshair. I am much more fond of an etched reticle for durability and less chance of tweak or breakage.
I also would recommend MILLET optics as well. a VERY good optic for the money.
I also have BSA optics on several rifles as well. They are also a very good optic for the price. I would pick barska over BSA... bot BOTH have served me well over the years. I have Barskas on everything from 17 up to 50 BMG, and BSA's on several 17's. A millet on my Savage model 12 in 204 Ruger, and Nikon's on my 243, 30-06 and Remington 1187 rifled slug gun.
Remember... we are not shooting long ranges with our 22's here. you don't need super accurate repeatability as chances are you are not shooting at ranges that will require you to be turning the adjustment knobs all the time. The above mentioned optics are all clear and bright, and give very good light transmission for an inexpensive price. They tend to hold zero very well, and certainly will withstand the bone jarring recoil forces of the 22 long rifle round...

Buy the optic you like, with the features you like, in the magnification you like, with the biggest objective you can fit on your rifle. if you need higher rings... go for it... just keep the front bell as close to the barrel as you can when mounting.

You're right...that's the fun of asking. I landed on the Nikon ProStaff 3-9x50. I could have gone up a notch, but for my 10/22, a $200 scope is just going to have to do. I do wish I could find a sunshade to fit it. The info I got from Nikon was incorrect about this...

Although it only a 40mm obj, I love my BSA Sweet 22. The quality is wayyy above everything else I looked at in the price range, works great. Its a 3-9x40, and I believe I paid $50 or so, but it looks like your looking to spend a bit more. Just sayin, its a good piece.

The Mueller APV has outstanding optics and A.O. I have this scope on 3 rimfires and my 260 Remington. I believe it is rated to 270 - 30-06 recoil levels.

I hit a little speed bump with Nikon, but their California service center handled my issue just fine. My build is nearly complete, and I'm pleased with the Nikon mounted on the 10/22. One more little tweak and I'll take it out & give it a try. I'll get some pics posted in a day or two...

Done...

I finished my target build. I wasn't out for anything spectacular, but I do expect some good results.



- target barrel
- compensator
- trigger job (gundoc)
- power custom mag release & charging handle
- Nikon ProStaff 3-9x50 + sunshade
- KG gun kote on receiver, barrel, compensator
- Ruger medallions on Hogue stock, just for fun...

LOL...The rings are what I didn't change, but still might. They are Weaver see-through rings that I already had on the rifle. I thought I might need the height for the 50mm scope objective, but it is a bit too high. I might bring it down a bit by replacing the rings...we'll see...

Good looking build. I have the same rings on mine. They look different and are a bit useless for me since I no longer have a front sight...

Totally agree. Just bought a mueller APV, awesome. 4-14x40. With a sunshade. $150.00, crazy cheap for a scope that nice. Planning on buying the 30mm tactical for my .243.
