I'm looking to buy a variable power scope for my 597 .22 rifle. Any recomendations or preferred online retailers out there? I checked Cabela's - they have two. I thought I remembered Chairman mentioning a Simmons at one point? Any suggestions would be real appreciated!

Just buy some 1 inch scope rings to fit the 22 and the skies the limit. You can put any rifle scope you want on it,,and the larger tube makes for alot better optics than the small diameter rim fire scopes. The 40mm and bigger lenses are helpful for gathering light on those early morning and late evening squirrel hunts too.

Yep ~ "Simmons 8-Point" does the trick for me.

And the fact that you can find 'em at great "close out/discontinued" prices doesn't hurt, either... :D
