    I am soliciting for reccomendations for a scope system that can fit and works well with the 10/22 takedown rifle. I currently have a 4x32 BSA .22 special, however, it does not fit well in the supplied carry bag when mounted. The only real option is to remove the scope each time, but that throws the zero off each time. Also, I dont want to spend more than the cost of the rifle on a scope system. All reccommendations are appreciated.

    I mounted the enclosed scope rail on my receiver, but have not purchased a scope. I'm thinking a small red dot for this one.

    I DID get some TruGlo fiber optic sights for it. Being put on tomorrow. Will let y'all know how that goes. I may remove the scope mount and stick to the truglo's.

    Yeah, I have been thinking red dot as well... please let me know how the truGlo goes, as I have been considering that for a few weeks not, just haven't pilled the trigger.

    I have the UTG Red dot on my TD. With the ATI stock and ATG red dot it still fits but it's tight.

    Neil,

    How do you see the accuracy affected between storing and assembling the rifle. Does the red dot hold true to zero between iterations?

    From my experience at 35-50yds, standing and dry cycling the bolt a few times, I cannot tell any difference. I am not a bench rest shooter so take this with a grain of salt, or three.

    My Brother-in-law shoots a bolt action Kimber, from a benchrest, and can put 3 shots in almost one hole at 50 yds. I don't think that my stock 10/22 with the green laminate stock and 3x9 scope can match his Kimber. So it all depends on what you are trying to do. I have a 3" shooting tree that I can knock them back and forth at will from 25yds standing. For me thats plinker heaven. When Zombies come, i know i can hold them off until my 50rnd drum runs dry. I'm impressed, but you may want more, or not ;+}.

    I've tried a couple of scopes on my 10/22 Takedown. Had a Nikon Prostaff Rimfire 3-9x32, but I had to remove it to fit in the bag which meant I had to verify the zero every time I put it back on. Tried a Bushnell TRS25 red dot which I had used on my 22/45 pistol. Red dot was ok, but not good enough for old eyes at 50 yards. Just put a Leapers UTG 3-9X32 CQB Bug Buster scope on it last weekend. Came with quick release ring mounts, but I used some that came with a Nikon P223 scope I bought last year. Just fits in tHe bad without removing the scope. Optics Planet has the scope if you are interested. I think it was under $100.
    Noticed your screen name. I'm USMA 80.

    Yes. I have taken my TD down many times and have not had to re-zero the red dot sight (EOTech XPS2-0).

    I had a UTG Bug Buster 3-9x32 but switched that out in favor of a Nikon P-22. There was no functional problem with the URG I just preferred the eye relief of the Nikon. I still have the UTG that was purchased last summer and I'd be willing to sell it for a fair price ($50 shipped to continental US). PM me if you're interested.
