Default Rimfire scopes

I just picked up a new .22 I threw on a 4x32 scope I had around the house. I'm looking for recommendations on a better 4X32 scope ?

I've got this one: http://www.opticsplanet.net/nikon-riflescope-prostaff-4x32.html

I know you can spend quite a bit less, and quite a bit more. I'm not too sure, however, that you'll be able to get much more for your money. I'm extremely pleased with this scope.

What make/model is the scope you put on there for now?

How much better? What kind of money do you want to spend? And it might be easier to find a variable than a fixed power now a days. I would go for a 1.5-4 myself.

The scope I put on is a Gamo Air Rifle/Rimfire 4X32. It retails around $29.95.

You may find that to be perfectly serviceable. If you do want to check out other scopes, though, be sure to bring that one with you for as abaseline comparison.

I know guys who are happy with $15 to $30 scopes on their rimfires, and I've heard of guys who put $300+ scopes on their rimfires. Those scope mfgrs will take all of the money you're willing to throw at 'em!

I put a Burris 4-12x33 compact w/target knobs on my CZ 453. Usually keep it on 4x when squirrel hunting but can crank it up to 12 when you need to get up close & personal for that head shotor when at the range trying to shoot those ety bity groups. Love it.

I've also got Burris 3-9x40 Balistic Plex scopes on both of my 7mm-08's. I guess you could say I'm sold on Burris scopes.

IMHO,you get a lot of value for the moneywitha Burris.
