    Has any one used these?
    How did you like it?
    2 to 7 magnification seems like plenty for a rimfire.
    I'm looking for something decent that will hold a zero pretty well.
    I was looking at some at gander mountain and they seem pretty nice for a rim fire gun.
    I would consider making this my standard scope for rim fire and air rifle.

    Haven't held one, but the reviews are mostly stellar. I still have a 4x Leupold on my A-Bolt 22 and a cheap 1980's tasco on my 10/22. If you get one let us know what you think.

    I've had a couple of reversed adjustment knobs recently from Nikon, Up is down, Left is right
    There's only 1 service center in the U.S. Commiefornia!
    Good luck getting them to get it strait cause they know what your using it for!

    Rimfires and air rifles are two different rifles! A good .22 scope can get rattled to pieces by an air rifle. The recoil of a air rifle is opposite of a .22 and the scopes are not designed for that. Unless it says "for air rifle use" I would avoid it for that. However if you try it, use it on an air rifle for a while and let us know how it worked.

    Your air rifle takes a different scope particularly if it is a break barrel .
    A scope designated for rim fire especially is likely "not" designed for any thing with significant recoil .

    Yeah the air rifle is a break barrel and it does hammer a little when fired.

    I have a Nikon P223 scope and the image is crystal clear. Price is pretty decent too.

    Well if it's rated for break barrel air guns your good to go.

    I have the p-223 Nikon scope and love it, good price and excellent glass for any money. My bet is this scope will do very well in the rim fire market. Not many good choices until now, most being a modified version of a center fire design! Might look at one for the wife!

    They are real nice. Nice and clear all the way through the 2 to 7 power range.
    The point of aim did change when I went from 5 to 7 power. I say pick a magnification and leave it there.
    But that happens on all but the highest end scopes.
