22 Ruger Scope

Post by lakelandman » Mon Oct 31, 2016 11:02 am

Hey guys,
I picked up a Bushnell scope at Walmart and the screws that mount keep coming lose can anyone recommend a good scope for a Ruger 22 price range around 50.00 or 100.00 tops.
Thanks Lakelandman

Try putting a tiny drop of Loctite on the screw threads, that should solve your issue. Other than that a Weaver or Simmons scope is a good value for a 22 cal rife and you can pick them up in the $40 to $60 range. With my old eyes I like a 4-9X scope for my 22LR plinking.

Never use locktite on a scope you can damage the scope of you need to apply heat to remove the screws from the rings
In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

Loctite Threadlocker #242 does not require heat for removal.
