    Hello all. I've generally kept our 10/22 stock, with the exception of aftermarket magazines. I recently bought a thread adapter so that when we finally receive the suppressor, it can be hushed. I've been kind of kicking around a small, low-power scope for this little rifle for use in small game hunting (e.g., rabbit and squirrel).

    Anyone have a recommendation? Thanks.

    I can't say enough good things about my 3-9x40 BSA Mil-Dot scope, especially considering how cheap it was in the first place. I paid roughly $150 in Canada which means it's probably closer to $100 if you're down south. I've had it on my .22 for about five years now without any issues and I absolutely love it.

    I'm sure you've seen it in the other thread, but it's this guy:

    Thanks for the information and link. A C-Note, give or take, is very reasonable for good optics.

    Tangentially, do you hunt any small game with the setup pictured above?

    Nope, but I do hunt very small targets with great success! :D

    Thanks again for the notes.

    Tangentially, in the off-chance someone does a similar setup, the thread adapters are a bad idea. There can be a situation in which there is a lack of concentricity to the bore and a resulting baffle strike can occur. I pitched the adapter and bought a threaded barrel instead. It was more expensive than the adapter, but a blow suppressor would hit the pocket book a lot harder.
