Tactical 22 RIMFIRE SCOPES
MAY 22, 2011 - Much has changed in the world of rimfire rifles since creating this page back in 2010. The GSG-5 has been replaced by the GSG-522. SIG SAUER has entered the .22 market with a model 522, there's an HK 416D, and an ISSC SCAR knockoff in the MKII. There are Milspec ar 15's chambered in .22 as well as dedicated uppers from Spikes and CMMG. Fortunately optics manufacturers have been paying attention and have began offering ballistically correct scopes for the .22lr rimfire.
Anyhow below is a list of optics others and myself have found to be suitable on the tactical 22 rifles on the market today. If you have a suggestion to add to the list jump over to the forum and post about it.
As usual I will try to provide links to follow for more information. The product links can be accessed by clicking the product titles or their images. Below is also a list of the usual suspects I get my optics and accessories from.
BUSHNELL SIMMONS PRO TARGET RIMFIRE SCOPES
PRIDE FOWLER RAPID RETUCICLE RIMFIRE SCOPES
LEUPOLD RIMFIRE SCOPES
Frequent visitors to my sites probably have noticed a pattern in the manner I present items to the public. Usually I break items down by brand. Well in the case of Combat Optical they don't list brands on much of their stock but their offerings are interesting enough that I thought I would include some examples here.

The NC Star Mark III Tactical Series 642G 6x42 Compact Riflescope was created to be packed with as many features as possible, but keeping the riflescope small enough and light enough to be carried on any platform. NC Star took the top qualities of the Mark III as a starting point to create a compact rifle scope with prominent lines and solid controls. The Mark III Tactical Series 6x42 Compact Riflescope is infused with two distinct Quick Release options for either a standard Weaver style/picatinny rail or an AR/M16 carry handle.
