Thru Mounts

My son can shoot 3" groups @ 100 yards with a Marlin XT-22TR off hand, factory iron sights?

Would you say that is exceptional? I had no idea until a few days ago. He wants me to get a scope for that rifle. Money is tight.

I'd like to do it for about $100. I'm thinking this scope http://www.tasco.com/products/index.cfm?ClassID=13&FamilyID=162&ProductID=663 and these rings http://www.tasco.com/products/index.cfm?ClassID=13&FamilyID=169&ProductID=700 from Optics Planet we can do that AND a case for about $100 http://www.opticsplanet.com/bulldog-cases-black-with-black-trim-44-scoped-rifle-bd240-44.html
One tube of ammo, 17 shots. We use Remington Eley Club Xtra 40.

Two things here come to mind since he is asking for a scope for this rifle. First have you seen him actually shoot a 3 inch group at 100 yards. When you have note down the brand of ammo as that gun apparently likes that ammo

Second thing is maybe dont get him a scope. If you dont he will he forced to keep his shootin habits sharp

If you do decide to get a scope do what i did and get what are known as see-thru mounts. This way he can continue to use his iron sights if he so chooses.

I think that scope would be good for that marlin. But check out others too

And honestly i think you should up your budget to 150$ because its going to be pretty hard to get both for under 100$

One last thing. Preferably do not buy either online. The scope wod
Be ok in my book for an online purchase but try and look through some at the store to see if there are an better ines for around that budget.

Also when you do mount the scope, and i say this from personal experience, you may have to get raised sights because the bolt will not clear the scope. I have a marlin model 25 that i had to get raised sights for in order to properly operate the gun

Other than that if he wants a scope i see no reason to keep it from him
