    3.5-10x36 bushnell 22 rimfire

    Anyone had any experience with the 3.5-10 x 36 bushnell rimfire with AO as a dedicated 22 scope for target shooting at 50m.

    Adjustable objective seems redundant if you are only ever going to be shooting at 50. Any rimfire specific scope should be set for 50 yard parallax. Just a thought.

    Personally don't like objective end parallax scopes. As Guypie already said if shooting at 50m solely then parallax adjustment is redundant. Not sure what sort of targets you intend to shoot but a nice fine crosshair to suit your needs is very important.

    I've used the rimfire 3-12 with side parallax. Good performance for the $.

    Cheers

    Last time I looked at buying a scope, the "rimfire" scopes with a 50m parallax setting were pretty much all piece of crap. If you look at AO scopes, designated rimfire or not, it does open up a few more options.

    There are few dedicated rimfire scopes as "rimfire" has a bit of variation too.....50 yds is not always the focal length and the ones you can adjust to your rifle give you a better option. In the budget range (without going to cheap sh_t) would be the Nikko Stirling Mountmaster AO and the Nikk Airking AO. The Airkings are the better of the two and are a bit more pricey but at around $200 for a 3-9x40 still pretty good value. The AO mount master is closer to $140.

    There are better ones, and whether you get a side or front focus, both are fine for 22s. For a rimfire scope without the AO you start looking at Nikon, Leupold and others and these can start to approach better quality as well as higher prices and from my experience the Nikko's perform very well.

    Ok i have been using a leupold 2_7 x 33 rimfire for many years it has very fine duplex. But i need a bit more magnification to see the bullet holes at 50 m.. Have looked through a nikon rimfire scope and it is about perfect for my needs but not avail in nz unless i import it. Currently using a 3_9 leupold but its parralax is set at 100m. Crosshairs are bit thick for my needs and the focus at 50 isnt clear enough. I dont want to spend over 300 if possible thats why im looking at the bushnell

    You can reset the parallax on most scopes, its quite straightforward to either do yourself or have reset by a repair shop.

    Burris has a decent rimfire scope too. 100m parallax is a nuisance on a 22 i reckon

    Air Guns

    use a Sidewinder on 6.5CM, was on air rifle and a Vantage on hornet.
    Reckon them good value and glass, could do with a bit more contrast but rate them in price range.
    Mostly mildots available it seems
