whats the best 22lr scope
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.
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
Yeah the pro staff is what I'm leaning towards
What he said. Details/specifics. Rifle? Distance? Plink/hunt?
I too have a Simmons and have been pleased. Though do like my leupold better

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?
Or just burning powder
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.
I've already got the answer I needed
So what scope did you end up with? I'd love to hear.
