$200.00 scope

2203 Views 32 Replies 23 Participants Last post by  Scrappy
So, I am finishing up my 10//22 build.
Standard carbine in choate folding stock.
This carbine has been loved up by Connecticut precision chambering.
Stupidly accurate, 100% reliable.
Now I need glass on a budget... At least for a few more months.
What do you recommend?
Thinking I would like a straight 4, 2X7, OR 3x9 at the biggest.
Would like to be in the $200.00 range for now..
Thanks in advance..

Leuopold like ede said.
I once put a red dot on a 10/22 but that didn’t last long. The dot was too big for hunting squirrels.
If you can’t afford a quality scope I always recommend saving until you can.
That way you won’t have an extra scope lying around after you find a way/reason to replace the cheap one.
I give the same advice on guns, holsters, Jeeps, etc.

I agree.. I have high end glass and triggers on all my rifles.
Also the red dot won’t work for me because I have to make head shots on beavers with it..
I have decided on the Leupold Vx2 2X7.

The Leupold in 2x7 or 3x9 would be perfect. If the VX 2 series is out of your $200 budget, then look at the new Leupold VX Freedom series, it's getting good reviews and I think it's $199 tops, maybe less.

Thanks, Funny just a few days before you posted I did install a Leupold freedom 2X7.
Great scope for the money. Low rings nice and compact. The rifle is a tack driver.
Paid $180.00 out the door for the scope.

Everyone should make a point to have an old Weaver K4 lying around as a spare or to put on a new rifle until you figure out or save for what you want permanently.

Old steel El Paso built K4's can be bought at gunshows or on Ebay for $50 or so without breaking a sweat.
Funny! Me and one of my employees actually have a few (builder) scopes that we just use till the build is complete, Then put the good glass on..
I ended up w Leupold, again. lol
