Newer Scope for a older rifle

I have a Marlin Model 60 .22 that I've had for years and all ways wanted to upgrade the scope (it had the standard tiny .22 scope). Recently I got a inexpensive but decent 4-Power Simmons scope for it.

Before (old scope)

I just put it on and still needs a bit of tweaking but I'm happy with it.

glad

The sub 1" tubes were still here and there in the 70-80's, but nearly everybody has made the switch to 1" tubes, even on .22's. I screwed my first 1 inch tube on a rimfire rifle (actually a 5mm mag ) about 1981.

Glad you got on board and I bet you are shooting better.

bamaranger - Funny!

I bought this gun back in the mid-80's (In AZ) and with that tiny scope, I shot a ton of rabbits with it!

I bought my a bb gun many-many years ago and it's been sitting around, so just for the heck of it I wanted to see if it would it. Wouldn't you know it does!

Good play in the musical scopes game - how's it shooting with new scope? An accurate .22 deserves a good scope.
