    Years back the Muller APV was the scope of choice for the 10/22. Mine is 15 years old or more, great scopes.

    This is with the sunshade installed.

    Your response/post is gone?

    I have a Nikon rimfire on my 17HMR and love it. That's one I also held up against the 10/22 and it just looked too long. It's like it's overpowering the rifle. I know it's wierd, but I want it to look decent too.

    Yea... I deleted my post... The small scope i linked i don't personally have experience with... so i just couldn't recommend it in good conscience.

    But I fully understand wanting it to look proportional.

    I hate red dot... even the rgb dot.. just not a fan, I NEVER seem to be able to see the dot on my target.

    What's your budget and your intent with the rifle?

    It's towards your limit, but IMO the Leupold VXII 3-9x40 is a lot of glass for the money.

    Great scope... but I think that's still going to look big on that smaller carbine.

    And at the lower end of the Leupold brand, personally, I think nikon offers more at that price point. Leupold brand would be my choice once we got up in price though

    I've got a few Nikon scopes, rangefinder Monarch bino's and a DSLR camera. Like them all. But the newest stuff I've seen looks pretty cheesy.

    The glass in the nikon prostaff is excellent. If you have a bass pro near you I'd suggest comparing the rimfire Leupold to the nikon.

    My local BPS has both, and I went planning on buying the leupold... until I compared them side by side.

    I'm a huge leupold fan... never been a huge nikon fan... but apples to apples, price and performance... I had to give the upper hand to the nikon in these ranges...

    Now... Nikon prostaff with bdc is my preferred scope... up to... $600... after that my preferences change a bit lol.

    Certainly a nice scope, but not quite what I'm looking for.

    Just to share... this hangs from my mirror in my tacoma...shot with that .22 I posted above at 75 yards. My trophy.

    The dog tag itself is solid copper, it was a gift, says bushido... the wooden beads I made by hand out of bocote wood. Then carved MOLON LABE into them...

    To be fair... I did practice on several blank dog tags before attempting on this one...

    Sooooo....slight/spontaneous change in direction.

    I had a Leupold VX-Freedom 3-9x40 in my gun cabinet. Don't ask why I even had that. I had to run up to LL Bean for some things and I was browsing the used gun section and stumbled upon a used mint Ruger American Compact (18") 22LR. I have a Ruger American 22" in 17HMR and it's a tack driver. Price was only $199 (including mounting and bore sighting my scope) so I pulled the proverbial trigger. Going to keep the factory open sights on the 10/22 carbine. I like the compactness of it for walking around in thick cover.

    I did a thing and bought a tactical solutions x-ring. So now I’m trying to sell my Thompson 10/22 clone haha. I just couldn’t get over how much I loved the x-ring.

    Yes sir, I'm moving a vortex 3-9 and a liberty regulator over from an older savage fsvr. If I'm as pleased with the xring as most others, the savage will be for sale shortly!
