Which .22 Scope

Hey guys, I am looking to upgrade my .22, which hasn't been shot in years, with a new scope. I am considering either the Nikon Pro Staff rimfire 3-9 or the BSA Sweet .22. Looking to use it a lot more next season for hunting small game.

Leaning towards the Nikon, as I really like my one pro-staff.

the gun is a Marlin Model 25N, by the way

thanks

I have a BSA illuminated 3 X 9 power on my 22 WMR. What an outstanding scope for fox... I like it!!

Muller 4 X 12 APV are also great rimfire scopes..Again cheap. I even have one of these on my 308 Win and puttting one on a 22250 too!!!

CK out Weavers Classic Rimfire line. Put a 2.5-7(#849431 2.5-7x28) Matte Dual-X on my CZ 452 American 22LR & love it! Top shelf glass for the money.

I have been very satisfied with the Nikon Pro Staff scopes I have bought.

Re: Which .22 Scope

As Loggy said, check out the new Weaver line. Great scopes.

My old Marlin 25N wears an ancient Weaver D6. And it still puts all 7 out of the clip in one ragged hole at 50 yards. I haven't touched the adjustments in about 15 years.

As an aside, you may want to try the CCI Mini-Mag Hp's in that Marlin.....They have proven the most accurate out of mine, My brother-in-laws, and my best friend's. 2 Marlin 25's and a Glenfield.

Don't let the name fool Ya!

Of the ones you have listed I'm a fan of the Nikon myself. Great optics and the rimfire BDC reticle you can't go wrong.

Nikon has a $50 rebate on some of their 22 Pro Staff scopes.

Re: Which .22 Scope

BTW if you don't want to spend a lot of money then look at the Simmons 22 Mag scope. You can find it for about $50 and it is a nice scope.

I got the simmons 3-9x32 22 mag dogface mentioned on my marlin. It was $45.99 at my local gun shop. Nice little scope and all you need for a squirrel gun. Cool thing to is it comes with rings.
