Re: .22 scope for 4-H competition.... Help!

Just a suggestion that might work for you until you can locate a replacement.

If full field of view isn't real critical, you could maybe slide the scope forward in the mounts to eliminate alot of parallax. This would "force" her eye to center in the scope and works effectively to reduce a large amount of parallax. Field of view is smaller, but the eye has to be centered to see through the scope.

Don't know if this is an option in your case, but it's a possibility.

3-9x AO with target turrets?

Cheap: Simmons 22 Mag 3-9x 32mm AO ($60 or so)
Moderate: Clearidge RM 3-9x 32mm AO (uses a Weaver RV9 scope,but with the old Bushnell 4200 target model zero resettable turrets)
Expensive: Sightron SII Big Sky rimfire 3-9x 36mm AO

I use the Clearidge RM on my Anschutz. It focuses down to 7-10yds even on 9x. The parallax adjustment is actually dead on for mine. The turrets are repeatable. With my 50yd zero and subsonic ammo, I dial up 7 MOA to hit dead on at 100yds and then back down. Can do it all day long with no discernible, unwanted POI change.
It's pretty convenient.

Check out this link: SWFA SS 6x42 Tactical Riflescope

It is a fixed 6x with target turrets, 30mm tube. Parallax adjustment is located where the power ring on a variable scope would be. Adjustable from 10 meters to infinity. $299.

check out some of the sightron scopes, some of them will AO down to a pretty short distance and so far the reports have been favorable over at the rimfire central webpage

You can always do this for parallax. It works very well and is reversible. Just find something that fits or use an old credit card or some tag board. Punch a small hole in it and put it in the objective bell.
