Set your Sights on a Nikon Rimfire Rifle Scope

Posted by Jeremy L on

Whether you’re plinking cans from a distance or varmint hunting, choosing the right scope for your rimfire rifle is crucial.¬† Unfortunately, many people do not take the 22LR cartridge seriously. I’m here to tell you that the 22lr is just as dangerous as other centerfire calibers. You should treat a rimfire rifle the same way you would a center fire rifle. This means if you would buy a quality optics¬†for a larger caliber rifle, you should do the same for your new 22lr.


If you just picked up one of the new Tactical 22′s that have been hitting the market, the Nikon p-22 2-7X32MM will fit perfectly on your new flat top carbine. I am personally looking forward to picking this scope up for my ISSC MK22 FN SCAR 22lr carbine. With the exposed turrets and BDC reticle, this scope allows me to push the 22 cartridge farther than it has been pushed before.

Don’t worry – I haven’t forget about you varmint hunters out there. The Nikon ProStaff Rimfire 3-9X40mm feels right at home on the tried and true Ruger 10/22 rifle. Sporting a huge objective lens, this scope will perform well in those early moring/dusk varmint hunts. Also featuring capped turrets, you don’t have to worry about bumping into something and losing your windage and elevation.

Nikon also has a fixed power rimfire specific rifle scope. The Nikon ProStaff 4X32MM is built with the same great features that Nikons other ProStaff scopes offer, like a fogproof and waterproof housing. This scope is perfect for anything from plinking to varmint hunting.

No matter which one of these Nikon rimfire rifle scopes you choose, you’ll be happy to know that they all get instant savings of $20-$30 off. Thanks to Nikon’s Rock your Rimfire promotion, there’s no better time to pull the trigger on picking one of these bad boys up.



If it goes bang or has to deal with the outdoors then I am most likely passionate about it. If I'm not at the gun range then I'm either hiking, mountain biking or kayaking. Follow along as I dive into outdoor gear related products and topics.
