Simmons is certainly not top of the line, but they give you good value for the money. If the scope works for its intended purpose, helps you see and hit your target, and holds zero, what more can you ask? If there is a genuine need to upgrade, such as improved light transmission, a better reticle, etc., then go ahead. But if this Simmons is doing the job, upgrading is probably just for bragging rights. A .22 sporter is just for plinking, target shooting, and small game hunting out to maybe 100 yds. It doesn't take a Nightforce scope to do that.
