    Byram, MS
    Depends -- what will its primary purpose be?

    T36 is good -- have 4 of them but they are all mounted on target grade rifles shooting at distances of 100 yrds or more ... not worth a darn for small game hunting, etc ...

    .. again, primary purpose to be used for????

    What the Captain said.

    I have a Nikon Prostaff Rimfire on my 10/22 and it works really well.

    That's like asking what's the best hamburger. :rolleyes:

    I have a Simmons,Model 510513, which is ok. I don't see much point is spending more money on optics than what a .22 rifle costs. I paid about $40. You can pay $1000 for a scope and strap it on your .22, but I'd bet I can shoot just as well with the $40 Simmons at the ranges a .22 is capable of. :)

    Or are you just looking for bragging rights on your hardware?

    This one: Simmons - 8-Point

    I have two Leupold models on mine, the 2-7x28 mm
    glossy rimfire model and the 3-9x33AO ultralight gloss
    model with the thin duplex reticle on both and considering
    what sort of rifles they are on, a tack driving CZ452 American
    and an almost as accurate Ruger M77/22, those size scopes
    seem to suit the rifles aesthetically better than the really large
    Weavers such as the T-36 or the variable models do but
    that is just my opinion and not any sort of authoritative

    I've got the Nikon with the 22 reticule. It's good for 150 I think.

    You can target practice with the factory iron sights. What's the purpose of your target practice, you planning on competing or hunting?

    For 100 yards I'd get nothing less than a 3x9 I had a 4x16 that worked good at that distance and you could dial it down for closer in ranges.
    22's can be very accurate even the 10/22's and especially the cz rimfires. Though I wouldn't call them actually target grade they can be made to shoot very , very accurate.

    The Weaver V16 and the Mueller APV are pretty good scopes and the Meuller 4.5x16 is a little over $100 last time I looked.

    That's called entertainment. Which begs the question of how much does one want to spend for entertainment. ;)

    Then the same questions need to be answered by him, not you. Ask him to join this forum, and we'll be happy to help him out. :)
