Good quality scope for 10/22

What is a good quality scope for a 10/22? 100+ yard range. Would like variable power. I was looking at the Nikon 3-9x40. Is there anything better for $100-$200? I've heard there is a Burris one that is better?

I added this to one other post. There are some of the original Pentax Pioneer on e-bay for $124.99 plus shipping. Said to be made along side Burris. Do NOT get the Pioneer II, they are China made. I got the one on e-bay and love it.

In the camera world, Nikon optics are generally considered to be the one to beat...

I put a Bushnell banner 3x9x50 with an illuminated reticle on mine and have zero complaints.

Nikon is good, I like Burris better but for what the need is, take a look at Mueller. Very nice optics for the money.

I have a Simmons 3x9x32 22 Mag scope on mine.
Cost only $55 and it works great. Clear image and stays zeroed when zooming.
I couldn't justify spending a lot for a scope when the rifle costs only $200.
For $55 the Simmons is fine for me.

+1, Although I got the Pentax I noted above, I have Simmons scopes on my .22, my 17HMR and even my 22-250 all with excellent results. I must admit though that I am a leisure target shooter in the 50-100 yard range and pretty easy on all my equipment. Nonetheless, that have served me well and are clear and hold their zero.

I got a Sightmark Holographic Reflex Sight on sale at Dunham's for 39.99. I can bounce a golf ball around the back yard with it. Once it was zeroed I haven't had any problems. I plan on moving it to my Buckmark and moving a Tasco 4x pistol/shotgun scope thats on my SBH 44mag. Its handled the 44mag well and is more than enough for a 10/22. I've never had it jump zero just don't like the eye relief. On a long arm like a 10/22 it should do well. But that reflex sight is great and is more than you will need, so long as your eyes are still good on far.

I have the Nikon 3-9x40 on a 10/22. It is excellent, look no further. Your search is over.

I am obviously a big fan of Nikon's and just recently got my hands on the New 2011 ProStaff Rimfire BDC 150 scope. Hopefully I'll get it mounted up and shot this week. Here's what I currently have one on my 10/22's that is a blast to shoot,
ProStaff 3-9 BDC. Parallax is 100 yards on this one, the New Rimfire is down to 50.
