  Best suggestions please for a 2-7 power Rimfire scope. I don't want any kind of drop reticle unless it's  a mil scale type, and an adjustable elevation turret would be a bonus I suppose. This is for a Sako quad which I use both 17 HMR and 22 long rifle barrels on.

 I prefer not to use a Centerfire scope, and compactness is a must   has a larger objective will not allow the barrel to be changed without removing the scope.

  Thanks in advance to all.

I would also be looking for a scope with very good adjustments since the zeros are going to be different with those two barrels.

What is your budget?

FYI, Burris used to make a scope specifically for your Sako. I believe it was a Burris Sako Quad 3-9x32. You might be able to find a used one. Kahles also made a similar scope for the Sako Quad. Both had four different zero settings for the four different barrels.

 I only have barrels for .17hmr and .22lr and I don't believe the burris scope is still offered.

 I don't mind resetting zero as I have been doing, just sick of having to remove the 40mm objective scope to swap barrels. I have checked, and a 33mm objective works just fine.

 Budget is whatever is necessary,  but realistically I don't need a top end  scope for a plinking rifle.

 This is the only rimfire I own.

Cortex is clearing out their Razor HD 1.5-8x32 and I see it in the sub-$500 range.  That is a very good deal for that scope.  Parallax is set at 100 yards, but it has good depth of field, so it works well across the board.

With standard rimfire scopes, old Weaver Rimfire 2.5-7x28 is a surprisingly decent scope, but with Weaver brand being discontinued, I do not know if you want to go there.

Lastly, SWFA has a SS Ultralight 2.5-10x32 which is an excellent scope for 17HMR and other larger rimfires.  I tested it on my 22LR and it really worked well there too.

The only thing I can think of that has not been mentioned is a Redfield 2-7 https://www.swfa.com/redfield-2-7x33-revolution-rifle-scope.html - https://www.swfa.com/redfield-2-7x33-revolution-rifle-scope.html   While it's not a rimfire scope it would be one I would consider, having owned both  2-7 Redfield and the 2-7 Weaver rimfire I like both.  If you can find the Weaver rimfire I wouldn't hesitate to buy it ,  and while nothing last forever I've never had problems with the ones I have.   Shame on vortex for not keeping the 2-7 Viper in it's line.  Not sure what can or cant be shipped to Canada so you may have an issue there.

 Virtually any scope that is available in the United States is available in Canada, they just can't be imported directly from retailers.
  That said, in-stock options seem to be Vortex Crossfire, Leupold freedom, and the Nikon P Rimfire and P tacticals. There are a couple of the Redfield 2-7 on clearance locally so the question is, are those better than a Leupold VX freedom?

Burris stuff is easily available in stock here as well but I haven't seen any Rimfire specific options

Last one I got (from here) was for my Air Force Condor SS.  I wanted a scope with adjustable parallax that would allow me to get down to within 10m.  The best overall for me was the Leupold 3-9x33 EFR.  Decent glass, and the EFR is nice for rimfire/air rifle.

Slighty off topic, anyone know of a ~3-9x50 scope which you can focus nice and low? Maybe with a ballistic ret of some kind?

Scrummy, what do you mean by "focus low?"  You mean close, or low light?  What will you put it on?

 I still haven't made my purchase, anybody have input into whether a Redfield Revol ution 2-7, or Leupold Freedom would be the better scope?
 I can find the Leupold freedom in rimfire configuration, and pricesprice is within $10 of each other, but it's hard to make an optical comparison in store though the Redfield seems to be a little easier to the eye.

 I did buy and return a Nikon rimfire with the target turrets which is also in the exact same price range but it just didn't suit me, and I decided I couldn't live with incredibly bulky target turrets on a sporter .22.

 Very hard to find much selection of this type of scope for Hands-On.

As I mentioned, the Leupold (and I'm by no means a homer for them) works great on my Air Force Talon SS, specifically because I needed the parallax adjustment down to 10m.  Optics are nice and forgiving.  I give it two thumbs up.  I doubt I would like it for shooting 300+, but I'm not using it for that.  It works for 100m and closer and as I said, the eye relief is good to great for the mag range.

Of the options I could lay hands on locally, I finally went back to a Nikon P-tactical rimfire 2-7 scope ( on sale at least)  I don't like the reticle with it's hold over circles, or the look with the oversized target turrets, but it has a small enough objective that I can swao the barrel in seconds.
  I haven't had the chance to play with it much, but the next chance I get to spend some real time at the range I will zero it with both barrels and probably mark the turret or something. 

  As long as the rifle holds zero reasonably well for both .22 and .17 hmr barrels it will serve it's purpose and I will have a functional setup.

 I had a hard time finding a trim scope that was anything other than a basic hunting scope with set-and-leave capped turrets. I find it surprising that there aren't more quality options considering the popularity of .22 rimfire and it's rainbow trajectory. That's before you have in the other rimfires now available like .17 HMR and .17 WSM which it seems would benefit from good scopes with user friendly reticles or turrets.

 Maybe the demand just isn't there.
