I'm trying to decide between an apple and an orange here. My two choices: Nikon Prostaff Rimfire 3-9x40 BDC 150 Truglo Tru-Brite Reflex Red Dot (or similar) I am building a 10 22 for fun. I have everything but the barrel, which will be here Monday. Here is the breakdown so far: Hogue OM stock PC bolt assembly PC trigger/hammer/sear upgrade (having problems getting the trigger to engage, but that is for another thread) Tac Sol 16.5" threaded bull barrel (will get a can for it sometime in the distant future) Since I ditched the original barrel I am going to have to put something on it optic wise to be able to shoot it. I do not plan to do any super accurate bench rest shooting. Just general plinking at steel and some paper targets. Maybe some light varmint hunting. I want it to be light to carry, and quick to get on target. I feel the red dot fits this category. However, I do not want to hinder myself at some longer distances, which is why I feel some magnification would be good. This is the only area of this build I am struggling with which direction to go. What say you?
