Good, inexpensive scope


Scoot

Question

I'm looking for a good, inexpensive scope to put on my .22. I'd like a fixed power scope that is durable and will last.
Any suggestion?

I like Leupold myself great scope but for a .22 it is probably a little more than you want since the scope probably would cost as much as the gun. Plus I don't know that they make a fixed power. You can get a Nikon Buckmaster 4X for $159 and they are a good scope. Really for a .22 you can probably go with the cheapest scope you can find and you would be ok. I have a tasco on mine and it is ok it obviously isn't a Leupold or a Nikon but it is a .22. Tasco actually make a couple scopes specifically for a .22 and they are only 40-60 bucks. I almost forgot a Swift is a very good scope to and I see they have a 4X for about $100. Swifts are actually really good for the money. They don't gather as much light as a Leupold but they are better than a tasco.

Simmons (believe it or not) makes a fairly nice, reasonably priced (50 bucks or so) 22 scope that seems to hold up pretty well in my opinion.. it's called the 22 mag and is worth checking out in my opinion... I believe it's a straight 4 x 32 scope.. they also make a variable version which I have no experience with...

I have a Bushnell Sportview 3-7 on mine and I like it. Pretty cheap, I think it was around 40 or 50 bucks. The first scope I had on it was a Simmons 4x and it was a piece of ****. I don't think it's the same one that the other guy just posted on, as it was more like 25 bucks than 50, but it was garbage. The reticles started spinning after about 10 shots.

Well there you go Scoot. I am pretty sure that we mentioned just about every brand of scope out there. Probably the best think to do since I see you live in Fargo is go to Scheel and see what they recomend and then look through them all. They have a stand the you can put 4 scopes into and then just go down the line and see what they look like. If it we me I would really take a good look at the Swifts that I mentioned. For the price they are a really good scope. If I were you I would avoid Bushnell and Weaver just because of some of the experience I have had with them. I have never had a simmons so I can say on them. Cabela's brands also might be worth looking at I have never had one but I have heard lots of talk on them. Well there I think we have covered them all.

      don't know what roulette is? Hi. Roulette as I think is a very cool game. Roulette has been played since the nineteenth century and every self-respecting casino, including online casinos, be sure to have it in their assortment https://aolbroadband.in/ .Games for free, which the guys provide on this site, of course, include the most popular varieties of roulette: American, European and French. The online version of roulette is no different from the well-known one from land-based casinos: it features a green table with marked numbers and betting fields, as well as a wheel with numbered cells on which the ball rotates. On this site you can learn more and even play it

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      Mini drones like Feichao Mini Drone Quadcopter M9 are good to take footage.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.
