Hey all,

New to the forum...
Just got a XT-22 and at the range realized my eyes arent what they used to be, want to put on a scope.
Any pointers about the base and rings for the XT-22?

Actually am about set on the BSA sweet 22 3-9 x 40 scope. but mounting hardware is like greek to me.

Any help will be appreciated.

Hi byrdbrain,

I have a similar question, and i'd like to know how you went.

I'm picking up an XT-22VR, the VR comes with weaver style bases and i have a Bushnell 3-9x32 scope. Should i get low,med or high rings. As the VR doesn't have iron sights and the objective lens is smaller that the eye lens my main concern is bolt removal clearance. I saw a youtube clip of a guy the took a dermal to the bolt arm and thinned it slightly to allow bolt removal. I'm not going to do that.

What size rings did you go with?

Get medium rings and you should have no problem with scope clearance..I have a savage mark II (also a bolt gun) I have medium weaver rings and a simmons 8 point 4X scope. This rifle is the death of beer cans at 50 yards..
