Need Rimfire Scope Recommendation

Postby Jay on Mon Dec 29, 2003 10:41 pm

Currently, I have a customized Ruger 10/22 that I have built myself utilizing parts from manufacturers such as Volquartsen, Power Custom and Green Mountain. At this time, I want to put a quality scope on this rifle. The scope that I have in mind is a Nikon Prostaff. However, I'm not sure what would be a better choice between a 3x9 or a 4x32 ? Based on my novice knowledge of scopes, I'm leaning towards a 4x32, but would like the feedback of any experts out there. Any feedback or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

I would like to recommend a 3x9 magnification for your rifle simply because you will have a better range of zoom if it is ever needed. It will not hurt the performance of the scope. I personally would recommend the Bushnell ELITE 3200 3-9x40 Matte Firefly Reticle Riflescope. It can be found here, I personally really like the firefly reticle which can be charged up with a flash light. It will glow for a while and is perfect for evening hunting. I hope this helps you out.
