    I got a new scope for my 10/22. It is a 3-12/44 with a parallax adjustment (what?) and an illuminated mil-dot reticle. Going to be great for killing some targets, cans, and maybe some rabbits ;) 10_22_scope.png I hope the image comes up :)

    great looking scope. If you want some good definitions and discussions on parallax, you'll find them right here on THR. Just use the Search button at the very top of the screen. Some of our members are very good at explaining complicated things in a way that makes it easy to understand. Have fun!

    Thanks, haven't shot it with it on there yet, but I am sure looking forward to it.

    A very nice scope on a nice rifle. Maybe in my opinion some slight overkill but better too much than too little. Most parallax would likely come into effect beyond the range you will be shooting with a 22 LR. Enjoy the combination. You may want to give this a read to understand parallax or more specific parallax error. While the internal forum threads on the subject are good I like pictures. :)

    The paralax adjustment is like an adjustable objective,only yours is on the side..You will appreciate it on a rimfire.It lets you correct the paralax for a given distance..A lot of people put basic H.P. rifle scopes on 22s,and wonder why they shoot a little bigger group that expected,at 35-50 yards.

    you will need to build the check weld on the stock. the scope is too high.

    Nice. Going through a similar search the last couple days in anticipation of a new Marlin 60.

    Definitely overkill for a factory carbine and the scope is too high for proper cheek weld. The carbine stock has a low comb for iron sight use.

    That scope looks a bit far back too, as well as high.

    This is an interesting case. I think the scope is overkill for that stock barrel...especially with the barrel band on there. However, if the OP starts playing dress up and gets a .920 bull barrel and new stock, then it'll be on the money.

    50 to 100 yards, 12X is nice on paper.
    On critters to 75 yds, straight 4x or maybe 2-7X.

    High comb, lower scope.........2-7X. Perfect.

    I shoot a 4-14 on my 10/22LVT and a 6-24 on my CZ452.
    Both these are range guns used for steel silloutte out to 200m. I'd be comfortable using either for critters dialed way down.

    My CZ 452 should be here Thursday. :) I have an old Leupold Vari-X II 3-9x40 that will have to do for now. The 10/22 has an old Tasco Golden Antler 3-9, while the 10-22 is a nice rifle it is not an Anschutz out of the box. Mine is a 25 year old stainless flavor. Never saw a need for great glass on the 10-22. However, that was just my thinking for my rifle.

    I have shot a 12X on my match barreled 10/22. It is nice to target those little black dots at 50 yards.

    Parallax adjustment... although it's not precisely the same thing, if you call it a "focus knob" and treat it the same way, it's a lot easier to understand. Functionally, that's what it is, and you don't have to know what parallax is all about.

    I have one .22 with a 4-16x Mil-dot with parrallax adjustment. It has been a pretty good prairiedog combo.....but the next precision .22 I put a 3-9x on. The 16 IS nice for 200 yard shoting but the simplicity and lighter weight of the 3-9 pretty well offsets the occassional "niceness" more magnification.

    Hookeye is that the Redfield Revolution 2-7x33? How do you like it?

    I couldn't shoot it.

    Even seated, it's simply far too far to the rear for my style.

    As far as what it is... if it works for you and the range of magnification is used - why not?

    It could use a little more "cow bell"...:D

    Sometimes - they're just for fun, so, have fun.

    Overkill? No way, pile on the XXX's. Attached are photos of my
    Remington Custom shop 40-X Sporter .22 RF with Leupold 12X and my Anschutz .22 with 36X B&L. I use these rifles for silhouette shooting, which is fired offhand only.

    A stock 10/22 carbine is NOT a 40X or Anschutz. High magnification is typically only desirable on rifles that can take advantage of it. A stock 10/22, can't.
