    Default 10/22 sights

    I want to put a scope on my 10/22 but I also want to still be able to use the iron sights as well. I went to one of my local gun shops to lookfor a see through rail because the original rail blocked the iron sights out. I explained to them what I was doing and one of the guys told me my gun wouldn't shoot worth a crap if I configured it like that. He said that's why the rear sight folds down and that i had to choose either the scope or iron sights and couldn't have both. Is this right?

    Any translucent material is still going to refract light, and change your point of aim. It's scope or iron sights on the 10/22 as far as I can tell.

    The gun store employee was partly right. Your rifle will still shoot as it did before. You will find it very difficult to shoot it as well as you did before.

    Setting the scope too high above the axis of the bore leads to problems. I am of the firm belief that see through rings/rails/etc. are a scam perpetrated on the unknowing.

    There is a solution to this problem. You need another 10/22. One with sights and one with a scope.

    No I am not being a smart ass. Right now the " Scope " is a holographic sight but you get the idea.

    You can also get pop up sights or offset / canted sights.

    Why couldn't the OP get a one piece quick release scope mount, to remove the scope for iron sight use?

    The rear flip up sight sits in front of the receiver and is very very low. On top of the receiver there are four screw holes for adding a scope rail section that is about 1/4 of an inch thick. Once you mount the scope rail you can't see the rear sight. So even with a detachable scope the OP would have to take off the rail to use the irons.

    I'm afraid that will seriously restrict the shooter's field of view.

    If your rifle has the fold down rear sight, I can't see how the rifle would be any more useful with the scope mounted as well. I don't know your reasons for wanting to do this, but personally, I prefer the flip down/bead sight. First off, the effective range of a 22lr isn't that far. Second, my eyes using iron sights are good to about 75 yds, which is farther than I would try and drop a squirrel or rabbit anyway. I'd also agree, that given the prices for a basic ranch rifle, you'd be better in the long run just buying a second 10/22 and outfitting it for the scope only.
    I have a 10/22 ranch and a 10/22 carbine model, and right out of the box they were shooters. I don't think I would be any more accurate with them using any scope.
