$200.00 scope

2190 32
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..

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.

Last year I did a complete restoration on a Mossberg 320B single shot. I want to put a classic type scope on it with the offset style rings and mount.
I was in a Bass Pro last summer, the salesman showed me that 2x7 model. That's a nice set up, I intend to do it but have been busy adding to the collection, too many others going right now. I hope to have it completed this fall for hunting.
I plan to start a thread on that particular build when I get the mount followed with some pictures.

I like Nikon for budget glass. To me they have good light and the glass for the price range is excellent. I have several Nikon scopes on different rifles and one of them is on my .270 that gets me atleast 2 tags filled every year. I have a p-223 on a AR, A p-22 on a Bolt action savage. They serve me well for intended purpose

Years back the budget scopes I installed were the BSA Sweet. I put them on 3 of my hunting go to .22s and have had great success with them.
I have an XT22YR I was shooting RGBs at 100 yards and put them in the size of a business card. I'm very happy with them.

I am looking hard at the VX2 Leupold 2X7...
The Redfield Revolution 2-7 and 3-9 are very similar to the Leupold (made in the same USA factory - at least they were a few years ago when I bought mine). And, might be a bit less money than the Leupold. I think I have three (3) Revolutions now - they have been good scopes.

I really like the Redfield Revolution. I have a 2x7 on one of my AR's and it is a really good scope. Redfield is owned by Leupold, and the Revolution is made in Oregon. You can also find a couple of different Leupold scopes in your range. I have one of their base model 3x9's on a deer rifle and it is a nice scope that cost me around $150, if memory serves me right. Redfield or Leupold and you can't go wrong.

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.

You can get a Leupold VX-Freedom for under $200. In fact, the VX-Freedom rimfire goes for as little as $150 new.
