Nope.

1st bad assumption - 30-30 recoils light. Not always so. In a lever-action, the shape of the stock results in more apparant recoil than in a typical bolt action of the same caliber.

2nd bad assumption - Simmons scopes can handle recoil. Even the Simmons centerfires scopes have a very poor reputation for holding up. The only exception is their Aetec line which seems to be fairly decently made. That rimfire scope is definately not made to handle recoil.
