Rimfire Scope Help

I just put a Ruger 10/22 Archangel together, so now im thinking optics. This will be used forn targets, grouse, and hares etc.

So I was considering an ACOG 4x or NC Star Mark III 3-9X.

I want more than the 4x.

So for all you AR-15 guys can you use a aimpoint scope magnifier on an acog?

Re: Rimfire Scope Help

IMO, FWIW...unless you are doing precision rimfire, target shooting at rimfire ranges (under 100 yards and more than likely 50 yards) anything over 4x is wasted.

i have Leupold Vari-x RF special scopes mounted on two very highly accurate CZ rifles that, more than, meet the needs; neither is more than 9x and i normally leave them set at 3x for all hunting and shooting i do with them.

keep in mind that all a scope does is enable you to SEE the target, it does NOT ensure you will hit it; your marksmanship is what will hit it.

i checked on this deal and while the scope is appealing, i found the shipping costs to be prohibitive. (at least as far as I'm concerned)

I agree with this line of thinking. I have had lots of big scopes on rimfires and for the most part the are a waste and in many cases limit your options. For me the best option, which likely also provides the greatest chance at success is a good lower power scope. I know you said more power than 4x but a good 1-4 like the SS or Vortex is so much fun on a rimfire repeater.

Re: Rimfire Scope Help

a lot of the rim-fire guys are big on Mueller optics. Might be worth checking out.
