    Help me pick a fixed power rimfire scope for my 10/22

    Pretty much per the thread title. Preference for small and light, and fixed 2.5-ish for my application—which is on a 10/22 takedown carried in a copper basin rifle backpack for use at the range; for plinking cans and tennis balls during outdoor camping season; as a talisman against very scary looking raccoons with no tails, unusual size, and no fear of being out amongst people during broad, mid-morning daylight hours... you know, typical greasy 10/22 stuff.

    Aside from simple and lightweight, my eyes are in roughly similar shape to Janitor’s at this point, so a premium on clarity in a wide range of lighting, and a fat, big print reticle would be good.

    Bonus P-F karma points for links.

    Thanks a ton in advance for your expertise, I appreciate it more than you know.

    Well, it’s not fixed power but this Leupold 2-7x is what I have and it’s a known good.

    It's a bit unconventional for a 10/22, but you might look at the Burris AR-332. I've only used it in normal sunny conditions, so can't attest to any level of awesomeness in abnormal lighting conditions, but it's 3x with a hard-to-miss reticle. Illuminated red or green as needed.

    Leupold 2.5x20 is what you're looking for.

    I'm using one on my AR and very much like it: long & non-fussy eye relief, generous eye box, great clarity, custom shop reticle options, six ounces.

    How about the Weaver 1-3? I have one on a lever action 22.

    Probably overkill for the 10/22, but I think you just saved me the trouble of starting a "help me pick a fixed power for my PCC 9mm takedown" thread. Much obliged.

    Also a great looking contender for both Ruger takedowns.

    Ditto, above.

    Thanks for the great ideas thus far!

    The Leupold 2.5x fits perfectly on a 10/22 take-down. Have one set up that way right now.

    Any higher grade shotgun scope.

    Good suggestions thus far. I'd be tempted to consider a Scout-type mount since the rifle is a takedown and zero might wander.
