I like it a lot ,because it's not to big and heavy and make the rifle feel top heavy.
2x magnification works well for what I need it for. If I remember I believe the one I have on the rifle is the 42 x2,and cost about $60 at Dicks Sporting goods. I might have gotten it on sale though.
Yes and yes. I did buy it this color and it was the only one I saw that seemed a little different. That is one of the reasons I got it. Has a stock barrel but has a trigger job and bolt buffer and flash hider. Very accurate gun.
Love my 10/22 - the first one I got, I built into a little M1 Carbine tribute. Did the whole thing: stock kit, sling and oiler, front and rear sights and of course a Ruger 25 mag.
Problem is, it shot so dang good I shoot it all the time! With these aftermarket, open sights, I'm outshooting my buddies using their .22 rifles with SCOPES. It's quite remarkable. We put paintballs on golf tees and shoot them off, and then shoot at golf balls hung from strings out at farther distances, and I can consistently keep up with or even outdo them with an open-sighted rifle. My wife and I liked it so much we bought 2 more 10/22's!
bhale187,I think I payed $89 for my TruGlo 2X red dot from Dicks back in 08.I had mine mounted on a browning ATD(japan) 22.I bought what was called a Ruger single stroke .177 pellet pistol and have it mounted on it now.It's deadly on birds out to about 40 yards.Im a big fan of red dots now.My oldest is a first gen Aimpoint MarkIII model of 1983.My newest is a Russian Kobra I got for $219 back in 8/09.All my AKs like them.lol
thanks the 2x model is the one I've been thinking about getting next for a plinker. its good to hear some positive first hand feedback.
I too am a HUGE red dot fan. My SWAT carbine had an eotech and later an Aimpoint PRO, and nearly every long gun I own gets either a red dot or a conventional magnified scope. A good red dot offers such amazingly fast times for getting on target, I just love them.
