    What scope are you running on your .22?

    A while back I swapped my VX1 2-7x28 to my 3030 and put skinner sights on my .22. Awesome for daytime hunting but no good at night.

    What is everyone else running? I want to stay pretty compact so either fixed power or low variable power.

    Could put skinners on the 3030 but it can get pretty dim in the woods where I hunt here in Missouri so the optic on 2x is handy. Usually pick them up in the binos at 100-150 yards and then the scope helps for a tidy shot placement as don't always pick up that stray branch through the irons

    On my go to Voere I have a crapy no name old x4 scope that if I aim at the bottom of the plex I am dead on at 100m. My 10/22 has a stirling Nikko 3x9-42scaope that hold zero well and never seems to loose its zero. Cheap scopes but you don't need to spend a lot for a rimfire IMO

    One of the new Burris Droptine scopes. Reticle especially designed for the .22lr. Decent glass and proving to be a great little scope for the money. 3-9 x 40

    I have a Nikko Nighteater 6x36 on one and a Nikon Prostaff Rimfire 3-9x40 on the other. Both do the job. Some good 2-7x32 options around too, Nikon/Weaver/Leupold etc.

    Hawke Night Eye 1.5-6x44 IR
    Mainly because it was cheap, AND it has the center red dot I wanted.
    Amazingly bright for night time shooting, its proven itself quite nicely for hares on the farm!

    Rabbit gun has a Nikko Stirling LaserKing 4 -12 x 42 which has great light capabilities, built in laser.

    AR 22 has a Bushnell 2x
    BUSHNELL AR Optics 2x MP Red Dot Sight

    Both do a suitable job for the task at hand and were pretty cheap.

    Bushnell 6500 2.5-16 x 42.
    Almost exclusively used at night with a scope mounted light.
    During the day, it's fun to dial up for the longer shots (The laser rangefinder is a nightmare to use at night).
    Given enough time, winding the scope up to 16 x for those pinpoint head shots is very satisfying.

    Burris C4 on my CZ 452 and Burris Fullfield 2 on my Remington 597.
    Have a Nikon Monarch 3 siting lonely at home which I may move to the CZ though.

    I bought a couple of these off Digit when I first started out and really like them. Put one on my bolt action 22 and the other on the 243.

    Mueller APT 4.5-14x44AO Tactical Mueller Optics

    Put the torch on and ready to go.
