There are a number of extremely good .22 rimfire rifles on the market, but the same does not hold true for dedicated .22 scopes. There are plenty of sound, inexpensive models that will get the job done, but as for really top flight, the only one I know of is the Leupold VX-II 3X-9X EFR. It comes in matte black, and with a fine Duplex crosshair. You can focus it for any range from 10 meters to infinity. The optics are very sharp, the adjustments are precise, and it's covered by Leupold's legendary warrantee. It ain't cheap--around $400 real world--but if you thought it was, the more fool you. There is no doubt in my military mind that this is the best of its kind.
