I am thinking of purchasing a set of see-through weaver rings for my 10/22 (around $12 at Walmart). These are the kind that mount right onto the receiver without the need for the factory rail, and allows to use the iron sights. Has anyone here used these? What do you think about them? I am planning to put a 3-9x40 Simmons scope on it. Any experiences with this setup? How about recommendations on alternate setups?

How do they mount on the reciever? DO they screw into the holes for the base? I haven't heard anything good about see-through rings. Either do iron sights, or get yourself a good 4 power, like a Leupold or Burris. Red dot sight would be a good compromise as well.

I use these rings and am very happy with them. Especially if you have a 50 mm Objective lens, the rings will keep the scope off the barrel and you can see the iron sites. This also helps for bore sighting. Set the irons, then look through the scope and see if it is set to the same point. Makes it easy.

Yep, got 'em on my Wally World Special with the silver Simmons 3-9X40 - nice setup for a plinker/squirrel rifle. The irons are dead-on at 25 yards, scope is zeroed for 50 yards.

I've got a TO9 rail stashed away if I decide to get serious.

If you're going to put them on a field gun you may want to take into account their durability.
I had the same set from Walmart and while fumbling around with the gun in the trunk of the car I banged the scope a little. It turns out I bent the front ring downward.
Not saying they're bad, but if you're not careful it is possible to bend them because they're pretty thin aluminum.
I just took them back to Walmart and waited til I got a PC base and Millet rings to mount my scope.
