What's the best for the price (<200 bucks) scopes for 22's.

I like something that I can really zoom in,

One's going on a 10/22, the other on a model 39a Marlin

I have Weaver V-10's on some of mine. They are variables that go up to 10 power. I also have some Tasco Target/Varmint's on some 10/22 T's...they are variables that go up to 24 power. I'm happy with them for what I use them for.
Every hunter should carry a positive attitude. It weighs nothing and can make or break a hunt.

Hunt hard and hunt long.

Used Leupold M8 scopes. If the parallax bothers you, Leupold charges 15 bucks or so to change it; I have had them do that when I send used scopes back in for a check-up.

I picked up a Bushnell Trophy in 4-12X40 with an adjustable objective, and fast focus eye piece. It works quite nicely on my CZ453.

Bought a 22 Hornet rifle with a Bushnell Banner, Dusk & Dawn, 17 Super scope, 3.5-10 x 36mm on it. It has an adjustable objective.

Liked it so well that I bought another on E-bay and mounted it on my Ruger 77/22.

Nikon BDC works perfectly for me.

Maybe it's me, but for that Model 39 I'd want a scope with a small profile. Something like a Leupold or Weaver rimfire 4x28. Both are light, slender and short - 9 or 10 inches.

Many of the rimfire scopes offered by most manufacturers are built like CF scopes - larger and heavier. They don't belong on a rimfire because they're too big and the rifle can be awkward to handle.

This is a Weaver 4x28mm on a Henry pump. It suits the rifle. The scope is not mounted too high, out of alignment with the shooter's eye. This rifle would benefit from a pad on the rear stock to bring it up another 1/2 inch, but it's not nearly as bad as some rifles with scopes positioned 1 inch or more above the action.

Proper scope alignment means quicker target acquisition and better shoulder mounting.

A Weaver 4x28 RF is about $120. The Leupold RF 4x28 is about $220. You can also get a 2-7 RF from either of these companies.

My two cents.

Safe Shooting!

Under $200 I like Weavers.

I put a weaver 4x shotgun scope on my CZ 425FS. Love it. I got it from natchez shooting supply when they had them on clearance for about 20% what a new one cost.
Otto is my co-pilot.

Nikon prostaff scopes work very well, on a variety of guns. I have a 2-7x shotgun scope on my H&R Sportster, and it has served me very well.
