    It is hard to explain quality, as it is hard to exlain clarity. The quality difference in optcis has to be seen to understand. This is even more important in a hunting scope, when shooting is done in less than perfect lighting conditions.

    Good scopes are not cheap and can easily cost multiples of a quality rifle. I really enjoy a Schmidt & Bender 3-12x50 on one of my .22s and a 6x42 Swarovski on the second from top.

    Agree buy what you want. On my 10/22 I have a 2x Tru Glo red dot. It's fine for the 10/22 and what I use it for. I also like it because of the weight. To heavy of a scope on such a light rifle for me anyway screws up the balance of the rifle by making it top heavy. JMHO.

    The older my eyes get the more scope I want (so I can actually see the holes on the paper).

    I would invest in a good trigger for that gun if you want to shoot it to it's potential with a good scope. It may just be me, but the trigger pull seemed too much on the 10/22 after shooting my Remington 700P.

    Edited to add: My experience was with a regular 10-22, not a target model. The triggers could be night and day.

    If that is overkill for a 10/22 I could introduce to to some Air rifle shooters LOL . After they spend a grand or three for the rifle and another on glass. Some with top of the line ATN nightvision for upwards of 3 grand... Buy the best you can afford !

    That's what got me into scopes a few years ago: degrading eyesight. Until 6 years ago, I have had only one scope on a rifle and that had been issued.

    I also have a 10/22 that I built for target shooting, Recoil not being a factor, I put a cheap BSA target scope on it. it has AO and turrets, Like $50. used my savings on target ammo. Shoots one hole groups too.
