Short Length Scope For A 10/22



Log in to see fewer ads
I filed a eForm 1 yesterday to SBR one of my 10/22's.

I have a Nikon 3-9x40 rimfire scope on it now, but it will be about an inch from the end of the muzzle when I get finished.

I'd like something similar to the pic I posted, but all the ones I've found are for center fire, and I don't want parallax problems. With a 6" barrel 10/22 it will be used for fun plinking, and armadillos.

I have a Vortex Strikefire II, and a Aimpoint PRO on a couple AR's, but I'd like to stick to a plain scope.

Given the fact that it's just going to be a plinker parallax isn't as much of a concern. I've shot plenty of good groups with 100 - 150 yard fixed parallax centerfire scopes at 50 yards with my .22's before I really got into BR shooting. Parallax really only factors in for very precise shooting.

As much as I like that Leupold 2.5x20 it's $$ than what I need on a 6" 10/22. Sure looks good thou!

I've come across that UTG 3-9x32 while doing searches for small scopes.

I always thought they made crap, but the reviews seem positive. I've never owned one.

Do they hold up well, and hold zero?

Something like that would fit my needs as far as size.

Thanks Y'all

Just ordered one off Amazon. Says I'll get it tomorrow.

I'll have to try it out with a 16" barrel till I get my stamp.

Thanks...I hope!

The 3-9x Bug Buster is a surprising little scope for the money. It will stand up to a springer air rifle (my Beeman R7, for example) so has to be pretty dang sturdy and the optics are much better than you would think for the money. Sized nicely for a short-barreled 10/22 as well.

Most of the rifles I own are magnums I have 22lr but they never get shot...so I need more power for my 17hmr and 22mag rifles. Here is a nice short scope on Flash_80's 10/22:
This is a Weaver Grand Slam 4-16x scope that is only 11.5" long


and it fits very well behind the Tangent sights on my CZ 452 FS rifle:


and it even looks great on a CZ 452 Trainer rifle:
.

just a suggestion and good luck on your quest.

UTG scopes are complete trash, You'd have to pay me to even touch one of these pieces of rubbish, I would not even put them on an recoiless airgun.

My cousin had one and whilst adjusting zero the turret cam away from the scope body, thus ruining a 3 hour round trip.

Luckily I brought my .223 that day and well lets say that UTG/Leapers had some ventilation holes before it shuffled off its mortal coil and was thrown in the rubbish bin.

I had a ruger 77 compact in 223 running that Leupold 2.5 x20 and a Ase relfex silencer, it was perfect for running deer/moving target at 100 yards

I deeply regret selling it, with the rifle, but I was offered so much for that rig, I couldn't resist selling it. To a South African chap, who uses it now and swears by it for Muntjack deer.

Muntjack deer, like Chinese water deer are only about the size of a large cat and are an invasive species in the UK. Some eccentric earl or aristo brought them over in the 19th century and they escaped. They are very cute tbh but they taste so good.


Rifle was lame its just the scope i miss more than anything, as for its practicality on a rimfire that's another question. steel shooting for sure it would work like a charm.


It was adorable and very cute.





although expensive, it really is very, very light and the optical clarity is second to none.

Just got the 4x leupy

I can't believe the clarity and sharpness. Amazing. Got it for 190 shipped from Midway. I really recommend this scope if your content with 4x

I have an older Leupold M8 2.5X20 on a Ruger PCC. Reticle is a little too heavy for rimfire but is perfect for the 9mm.
