    WTB. Scope for rimfire

    Just asking on here first, I'm looking for a scope that'll do the job on a 17hmr, up to a couple hundy, if anyone has something sitting around they'd like to sell!

    Thanks in advance.

    4-12 Airking would be right in your budget. Brand new they go for about that and they work well. I use one myself. Smiths City or anyone that sells Howa, or Nikko Stirling would be worth asking. Be careful with larger magnification scopes, the adjustable Objective will help with the parallax at higher magnifications so try make sure any scope you get has that if going past 9x etc.

    I have some 4-16 Nighteaters here but while I can do a deal they would be near twice your budget. (Brand new though) feel free to PM me if no one else has anything you are keen on.

    How big are you looking at going to?

    Got a ranger 3-9×42 I'd do for $150pp. Pretty good nick with a couple of small marks from other rifles in the safe (see pics). Glass is mint.
