Why!

Not just buy a brand new one, like $125. or so. I'd love one of these.

Anyone shoot a S&W M&P .22? Was thinking of picking one up. My current .22 it's the Remington 597 and I want an upgrade.

Scope?

I just bought myself a Ruger 10/22 Takedown. After discovering that my vision is not what it once was, I've decided to add a scope. What do you guys recommend that is on the inexpensive side, recognizing that I am only an occasional shooter?

Any cheap $50 3x9 scope should handle the "stress" of a .22-- from there its just how much fluff you wanna pay for.

I've been meaning to ask the Collective on this one: does anyone have an opinion on the longer-term accuracy of the takedown model? And if it's negative, please be sure to phrase your answer in a manner that doesn't give selaznog buyer's remorse

Well, they are pretty new to the market but from what what I've read they might just be more accurate than the regular version if not the same. Of course I'm trying to sell myself on one so I may be biased...

I bought a BSA Sweet 22 9x40 for one of our 10/22's and was pleasantly surprised. I thought the range adjustment based on bullet weight was kind of gimmicky, but it actually works pretty well within the normal operating range of a .22 (25-100 yards).

Something small and light would seem appropriate for the 'Take-Down'. While most any lower power scope will probably be OK, keep in mind that most .22 scopes are set to be paralax free at 50 yards while 'high power' (as in the rifle not the magnification) scopes are more often set to be paralax free at 100 yards or more, unless the scope in question has user variable paralax adjustment (i.e. adjustable objective) and that is generally on more expensive models. A .22 specific scope may be a better choice for that reason.
What is paralax and why do you care? Paralax is the movement of the 'cross hairs' in conjuction with the position of your eye (while the actual scope is not moved), the gun is fixed but as your eye position is changed the cross hairs move. Set the scope on something secure, looking at a distance close to what you expect to shoot most often and move your head around a bit to see if and how much the aiming point seems to change. If you like it, buy it if the amount of paralax is problematic try another scope. I have bought scopes without being able to look through them (usually with 'higher' grade stuff) but really prefer to get a 'test look' whenever possible.

I agree.

The critics of cheap scopes often point out how poorly they re-zero after adjusting settings for windage.

I have one on an AR15, and it's held its zero through a lot of rounds simply because I set it once and then stopped messing with it.

If you want to use the stock case with the take down you might not be able to use a larger scope, both pieces won't fit.

Thanks for the recommendations. The size of the scope is not a huge issue. I bought the takedown model so that I could fit it in a backpack when riding a dirt bike. My house backs up to BLM land and there is a makeshift range about two miles away. I found a cheapo 3-9x40. I'm not pleased with the rings that were included, but we'll see. I just need a case that is more like a sock, which shouldn't be hard to find.

Oh, and in this age of soaring gun prices. Sportsman's Warehouse had a bunch of 10/22 takedowns for $309, which is a lot less than I paid last week when I could find only one locally.

You will enjoy the TD. Loving mine. Fun for my son and I to shoot. I put a small BSA on mine and it works very well. Also fits in my Oakley packpack for the moto ride in.





Have since put the straight tube on the Tapco stock for the scope. The angled was good for the iron sights, but he straight is better for the scope.
