El Paso Weaver K2.5 or perhaps a Leupold Compact 2.5 is all you need. Cheap and durable.

My go to squirrel rifles are a Ruger 77/22 RSI with a Leupold VX-2 3-9x33 EFR Rimfire and a Winchester m61 with a soon to be arriving Leupold VX-1 2-7x28 that I found in the classified. I do like being able to turn that EFR down to ten meters to eliminate all parallax at close range when I have the time to be deliberate, but that 2-7x28 Rimfire should be good for running and gunning.

Thinking about another rimfire scope for shooting treed squirrels. I want to keep the weight down. I have a Leupold Freedom 3x9x40 rimfire so I am familiar with them. I am wondering about the same in 2x7x33. Does one trump the other or anything negative with the smaller scope? Also, are there others I should look at? Seems several have recently been discontinued. I might consider a straight 4X as well. Thanks



The 2x7x33 Leupold is the biggest piece of junk I own. Bought it new and the gray haze was horrible. Sent it back on my dime and its better but still worse than some of the cheap junk out there. Come to find out I'm not alone in my dislike for them.
