Any recommendations for a scope for Ruger 10/22?
This was my first gun, given to me by my father over 40 years ago. Works well, well-preserved, but we are not talking about a high dollar target rifle.
It has the original trigger, barrel, etc. I do not plan to change anything on it.
Over the years, it has had a Weaver 4X, gotten along with iron sights, and currently, a Tasco 3x9 World Class.
I have Swarovski, Meopta, Leupold and an American made Redfield scopes on my center fire rifles.
Not looking to spend a fortune, but would like something better than the Tasco, a budget scope with only so-so light gathering and image sharpness.
When my daughter was still living at home, I gave her a 10/22, topped with a gold ring Leupold 2 x 7/ 32.
Maybe a different way to ask would be, anything better than the Leupold in the same general price range? It has a noticeably brighter, sharper image than the Tasco.
Mainly use it for plinking. and to keep a chipmunk out of my garden. I live in a rural area where so long as you are careful about your backstop, you can (and people do) shoot on their properties.
