    Hello.

    I have a 1976 Ruger 10/22 with the factory irons and a slick top with no rail. (I think there are two screws there IIRC, but it is locked up and I am not home)

    I would like a decent scope for target shooting that will hold zero and is good from 50 feet to 300 yards (or so).

    What does everyone recommend for a good all in one package?

    Is stuff like this one here junk?

    I'm not so sure about shooting a .22lr out to 300yds, but I ordered the BSA Sweet .22 from SWFA (a sponsor here on GT). It has different turrets for 36,38,and 40gr bullets. I paid $50 shipped to my door. I sighted in using the 38gr and held its zero from 50 yards to 75 then out to 100 with the quick compensation turret. Love it, especially for 40 + shipping.

    ETA: I was shooting Fiocci .22 38gr out of a 10/22. The scope you had posted seems sufficient for 50' to 300'. You can't beat the price either..give it a try! :)

    I used the factory rail that came with the gun and used weaver 1'' rings from wally world. IIRC the scope rings were $9.99 and you can pick up a mount for cheap too about 10 bucks.

    rings: http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product_10151_-1_10001_20067____SearchResults

    cd

    eta: Wally world does not list scope rings on their website. Bass Pro has similar ones that are a bit more $.

    Cool! Does anyone sell a kit with rail rings and scope?

    I bought mine separately. I went with the see-thru rings. I hate to give up iron sights unless I have to. The scope that I got was admittedly overkill. But I mainly got it for kids and the illuminated reticle was great for the dark range that we frequently visit.

    How about a Mueller APV with either a Dednutz mount or Burris Sig Zee rings and a Power Custom base?

    The N C Star for $40 is still probably a better scope than the one on Amazon. I didn't look very hard but I didn't see a brand name. I understand why you are looking for a "package" deal, but get a "Weaver" base for your 10/22, then get a $50+ scope. Avoid a "rimfire" scope, they are too small.

    BSA and Tasco are two decent entry level scopes you might look into.

    Yes, there are two little screws in the top of the receiver you will remove to mount your rail. Keep doing research, try Midway or Brownells to see rails.
