Scope Suggestion

497 6
I have just built a 10/22 for a light weight off hand shooter. I would like to find something in a compact scope to keep the weight down. I currently am using a red dot but would like some magnification. Most of my shooting with this will be between 25 and 50 yards. Any help woud be appreciated.

Thanks

Without knowing a bit more about your requirements (AO, fixed power versus variable, power range if variable, hunting, casual target, competition shooting, budget), I would recommend a Clearidge RM 3-9X AO, about 11.5 inches long, 11.9 oz as a best buy at $189. Close focus is 10 yards, and has target knobs. Available in duplex for the hunter/casual target type, and fine for the serious target shooter.



There are many other scopes, such as the compact $350 Leupold EFR 3-9X AO.

For an super compact hunter/plinker scope it's hard to beat the Weaver Classic 4x32 fixed power shotgun scope. Like a rimfire scope the Weaver shotgun scope is set to be parallax free at 50yrds. The scope is bright and super clear and a pleasure to use. Because it's a shotgun scope it's also rugged and has a ton of eye relief. It's a $200 scope on clearance for $80 at Natchez.

I also like the Weaver RV9 3-9x32 w/AO Classic Rimfire. This is what I've bought for my latest build. It's small and light - just slightly longer than the 4x32 and has an adjustable objective so it's suitable for a target scope as well as a plinker/hunter. ~$200.
