Ok, before I get the BSA flames, I've noticed that Chris has given positive support for the sweet 17.. I am wondering if the new sweet 17 that has recieved positive support compares to the .22 special scope from them?  I am planning on eventually getting a good scope for the 10/22 that I have, but its just a plinking gun for right now, and I figure that a BSA will do until this college student can afford a 'real' scope.  I dont need the rangefinding recticle that the sweet 17 has, I'm just wondering optically/mechanically, is it a 'decent' low end scope that will more or less hold zero for plinking use?

Thanks.

Do not under any circumstances buy a BSA 3/4" Rimfire Scope.  As a matter of fact do not buy any 3/4" scope from any manufacturer, they are toys and questionable for a Daisy Red Rider.

 

You are safe with a BSA .22 / Airgun scope (especially the units with stock numbers that start with AR).

no.. I'm not that dumb.. lol, I had one of those 20mm scopes that came with my crossman pumpmaster, it was a piece of junk, both the gun and scope.. What I meant was this http://www.riflescopes.com/products/S39X32WR/bsa_3-9x32_.22_ special_riflescope.htm I saw it in a catalog, I was thinking at that price there probably just junk, but your support of the 'sweet 17' made me wonder... thats in the 'safe'  zone you were talking about... heck, I think I'll just pay afew extra bucks and get a swift, I've heard alot of good comments about their stuff.   Oh, I know SWFA doesn't list them, but can you guys get them?

I checked with a few distributors we deal with and none of them carry Swift, sorry.

 

Also consider these:

 

Bushnell .22 Scopes

 

Simmons .22 Scopes

LOL those BSA 3/4" rimfire scopes look pretty cheap. I think the $20 price tag is even a little high.

Bushnell and Simmons would definitely be a better choice than BSA.
