I have a 10/22 paired with this cheap Simmons scope. I am very happy with the setup. It's clearly not a top of the line scope but after dialing it in it holds well and has served its purpose pretty well for me. Should be good enough for the kids.

On the left is my first long gun, a Ruger American Rimfire model 8301. It has a Simmons 3-9x32 scope on an Evolution Scope Base. It currently has no other mods. I've considered dropping in the Timoney trigger, but I feel like this firearm is AOK in the current configuration. This was the second time I have fired the RAR with the scope on it. The first time was about a week ago where I shot it off of bags to get it zeroed in. Today, I shot standing/unsupported. That was a challenge. I loaded 5 rounds at a time. I learned that doing an upper body workout a few hours before going to the range can make a light firearm feel really heavy. I think I'm going to try using the higher comb cheek riser to see if I can get a more consistent cheek weld without having to contort my neck so much. My focus this range visit was shooting with both eyes open, and getting as consistent groups as I could. I fired 50 rounds of CCI Blazer. Now it makes sense to me why people shoot prone, use a monopod, or a bipod. Shooting off hand made me realize how much I move when firing. It was a great training experience that will carry over to how I shoot my other firearms.

On the right is my most recent long gun (I picked it up yesterday), a bone stock Ruger PC Carbine model 19101 (non-treaded barrel with 10 round magazine version). This was my first range visit with the PC Carbine. I was extremely excited to get some range time with this one. Prior to this, I had only fired: .22LR, 12 gauge, and .223 from long guns. The .223 was when I took a rifle course at Sig Sauer Academy (loaner MCX).

First Impressions of the PC Carbine

To me, it had all the fun of shooting a 10/22 with a bigger boom.

I was skeptical about trying to use ghost ring sights. I have horrible eye sight, and could not get a sight picture with Tech Sights on a 10/22 to save my life. However, these were really easy to use. I'm going to wait a while before trying it with a red dot sight.

Recoil was fine. It is a 9mm, so it was not bad by any stretch.

Trigger feels pretty good to me as far as break and pressure. If an aftermarket company releases a metal trigger (the actual trigger component), I'd strongly consider adding that.

The only thing that felt a bit odd was the magazine release. I'm going to add the Taccom one.

The surprising thing to me was that it would fit in a cheapie bag that I picked up for my shotgun. So, I'm not planning on picking up a specific bag for this firearm anytime soon.

I'm on the fence about magazines for this thing. Pmags for Glocks are pretty cost efficient compared to the cost of the Ruger SR9 mags. So, I have some research to do.

Eventually, I'll throw a picture of my three Rugers up on here.

Not pictured is my Ruger 10/22 Sporter model 1102. I have made some tweaks to it. So far, it has the Ruger BX Trigger, Volquartsen auto-bolt release, extractor, and then I just got in the Surestrike firing pin and bolt handle. It has the same scope that I put on the American Rimfire but on a Monstrum rail. I still need to zero in the scope for this one.

Best 10/22 scope you will ever buy $ for $ is

3-9 magnification, decent glass, holds up well.

u/DiscombobulatedDunce · 4 pointsr/guns

It should be a 3/8" dovetail on the top so anything that has a 3/8" dovetail mount will work with it. I use a simmons 3-9x32mm on my 795 that works pretty well.

You can get it on Amazon for like 39 bucks.

u/BrainSturgeon · 4 pointsr/guns

About halfway through the afternoon my crosshairs suddenly shifted. I have a Simmons Truplex 3-9x32 scope on a Ruger 10/22. This is the first time I've ever shot this rifle or used this scope. The recoil on the 10/22 is practically non-existent so I don't see how this could happen.

How is this even possible?

u/Hovsky · 4 pointsr/guns

I bought this scope for my .22 and fully expected the rings to suck. I overtightened one and completely separated the thingamajigger that the screw pushes against from the ring itself.

Basically what half-decent rings should I buy to mount it securely on my Savage 64?

u/Zefirus · 4 pointsr/1022

I can vouch for the Simmons .22 Mag scope (also available on Amazon). For the 30 bucks that you pay for it, it's an amazing little scope.

u/orntar · 4 pointsr/1022

I picked this up a few weeks ago.

Simmons 511039 22 MAG 3-9 x 32 Riflescope (Matte Black)

Works real well. Seems like a good scope to me. I also got a nicer weaver rail and weaver scope rings to mount it.

u/SalishSailor · 4 pointsr/canadaguns

I have the Henry base model. It doesn't have all the fashion of the more expensive ones, but it's an excellent shooter and looks good. I prefer the sights on it to the annoying buckhorn ones on the frontier & golden boy. Might be worth saving the money and buying it (H001).

I also recently got a Marlin 795, w/ 25 round promags and a simmons 3-9x rimfire scope. Gun was about $200 new, mags were about $25, and the scope was around $60. It's the most pragmatic of all my 22s, ridiculously accurate, and if I was hunting small game with a 22 it would be the one (out of a handful of 22s I own) that I'd take. It's rugged, inexpensive, large mags, semi-auto in case you need a second shot, and shoots ridiculously well. I was threading the same bullet hole at 50 yards (bench shooting of course).

u/0x00000042 · 4 pointsr/guns

You'll be fine with a decent rimfire scope. If you get serious about it you can invest later. I have two rimfire scopes, both around $40: a Simmons .22 Mag Fixed Power 4x32mm and a Simmons .22 Mag Variable POwer 3-9x32mm. They work fine for plinking with .22 and a friend of mine uses his for small game hunting.

More expensive scopes will work for .22, and are definitely nicer, but part of the expense is making them robust enough to withstand the recoil of much more powerful centerfire rounds.

u/UnbundleTheGrundle · 4 pointsr/gundeals

There the lightning deals, then there are department deals if supplied by Amazon.

If you search in the prime day category, you can find things like this simmons 3-9x32 for $30 (discount applied at checkout). Some items qualify for an extra 20% need to check the top right corner.

Not a killer deal, just an example. I gave up after 5 min. This subreddit strains my wallet enough already.

u/JMTaco · 3 pointsr/1022

It’s actually a cheap Simmons from Amazon. It surprisingly nice and clear! It feels pretty sturdy as well. It’s an awesome scope for the price!

u/RokStacker · 3 pointsr/guns

I've got this scope, Simmons .22Mag - It holds zero pretty damn well even after a couple hundred rounds, and I don't treat it nice either... and still cheap.

u/[deleted] · 3 pointsr/guns

Here is my 10/22. I bought this package which includes the 16 inch bull barrel and the Hogue Overmold Stock. I also installed a cheap bipod and red dot to hold me over until I decide my final configuration. I also own a Simmons that I throw on at the outdoor ranges. No mods to the internals, but a trigger job might be in the works soon.

Go get those damn squirrels. God speed good sir.

u/brainleak · 2 pointsr/guns

I'd suggest this, for the price, It's a great optic. I've been happy with mine. keeps it's zero perfectly. for 30 bucks I dont think you can go wrong with this

u/lonewolf-chicago · 2 pointsr/Hunting

I just bought this scope 4 weeks ago along with these rings. Great deal. 900+ reviews with 4.5 rating. I mounted it and it is truly a great scope.



Total cost was like $60 on Amazon.

u/bdnicho · 2 pointsr/1022

I also have a Simmons .22 Scope. It works great for the price.

u/buh_weezy · 2 pointsr/1022

any idea on how it compares to a simmons truplex .22 mag scope?

I have this one on my 22 right now but I cannot seem to get the crosshairs to focus with the target focused at the same time, one is always blurry...

u/WoodenSunshine · 2 pointsr/gundeals

Yes you can, I have This on mine Very good squirrel popper.

u/machoyd · 2 pointsr/canadagunsEE

I've had a few copies of this scope and it's awesome for the money. Doesn't break the bank and for what you'll be using it for, it's a great price.

The rings it comes with are junk though.

u/maflickner · 2 pointsr/guns

Onto the discription! What this is is my grandfather's Winchester Model 290, which retailed for the very expensive price of $75 new in the 70's. I had shown an interest in firearms for years now, so on my 18th birthday my dad dug this out of the attic and said, "You get it working and we'll go shooting." Luckily there was a gun cleaning kit with it, also from the 1970s. I cleaned out the gun, and put 350 rounds of .22 through it with 2 minor feeding hiccups.

The range trip confirmed the barely adjustable plastic sights were indeed crap, as I had ascertained on the internet, and I ordered the cheap .22 scope with dovetail mounts for the gun. I don't expect it to be winning any accuracy awards and is going to be used as a plinker, so I didn't need a high budget, ultra clear scope. I ended up just going for the Simmons .22 mag It works. Nothing fancy.

I really just like how the rifle looks with a scope. It seems very natural and rounds out the look. I'll most likely go to zero it in the next few days.

u/hayyoyou · 1 pointr/guns

This Simmons works well too for the price.

u/diagela · 1 pointr/1022

is this not the Simmons in black?

also I did not know any Simmons scope had a good reputation anywhere. I would definitely put it in the same class as Barska though.

u/LockyBalboaPrime · 1 pointr/GunAccessoriesForSale

Scope for $38 on Amazon

I have these on 3 rimfire rifles now, solid scope for stupid cheap. Holding zero just fine, dropped them a couple times and nothing bag happened, decent plinking glass.

u/riottaco · 1 pointr/canadaguns

I am definitely considering this cheap Simmons .22 mag scope, but I'm wondering if it's worth spending a little more for something like a Nikon Prostaff for almost three times as much.

Hadn't seen the RAR in wood. They look super nice, but the durability of a plastic stock is definitely a bonus. Not so much the flex you mentioned... The Savage B22 could also be interesting in a very similair price range.

u/SimianRex · 1 pointr/1022

Looking at this scope.

Any suggestions on an extractor?

u/flopsweater · 1 pointr/longrange

I have two 22LR rifles, one with a Simmons 3-9 rimfire scope for about $40, one with a Vortex Crossfire 2 3-9 for more like $120.

The simmons is sufficient, but the extra $100 does buy a significantly sharper view. So I guess it depends on what your wallet likes. I would point you to the nicer glass, especially if you're practicing distance/bullseye shooting.

FFP is really only important for helping you figure out how far or how big a target is. You don't need such a thing for rimfire shooting IMO.

u/nssurge · 1 pointr/guns

A friend of mine has this, works just fine for bench shooting at a 100yds. He's not particularly nice to it either and it still performs well. It does include rings, is just not mentioned in the description, but the reviews confirm this

u/allf8ed · 1 pointr/1022

Heard good things about this so I ordered it today.

u/Brunzwick · 1 pointr/1022

Do you want iron sights or a scope? If you want iron sights, check out the NODAK sights or Tech sights. If you want a scope, check out the Simmons 511039. It's very popular for 10/22 and is extremely cheap. Here's the link to the Simmons:

I run both the Simmons scope and the NODAK sights on mine using these mounts:

I got this one and I have never had to re-zero it yet. Less than $40. I got different rings for mine though.
