Scope for a 24 - 20GA/22mag
Mon Nov 26, 2012 12:22am

I've got a 24 my Grandfather got for me back in the 60's. I've was in the military for more than 25 years so this gun stayed in the closet for most of its life. What would be a nice reasonably priced scope I could buy for this gun for plinking around? The only shooting of animals I do is with a camera these days so it would just be a gun for some fun target shooting.

My 24 - 22Mag/20GA

      Going to the Forum Gallery I found a bunch of 24's with scopes pictured.

            Com'on....if one can mount a scope securely on a Mdl 24 (either clamp type or Weaver-type), it's OK to use when firing the shotgun. After all, there are thousands (millions?) of scoped rifles that... more

              I shot one with a slug for many years, it was a hole puncher and great in shotgun only seasons. Set the eye relief accordingly, and use common sense. Shoot away!

                My dad used a 2.5X scope to shoot turtles in his duck pond years ago. My old .22 / .410 got a new lease on life and .22 was very accurate.

                    Shot them from heck and back---never had a problem just cause it's written on the barrel (or posted on the web) doesn't mean it's correct Try for yourself and decide

                I went back through the posts and can't find out why Savage would put a warning on the barrel stating a scope was NOT to be used with the shotgun. Why is it? Does the scope punch a person in the eye... more

      Nice pic, I have the 22/410 same style. Having problems getting the forend off and I need a butt for it. Any suggestions.

        I don't have any good suggestions. I'm sure there are a lot of good people here with the answer though.

      I bought a Simmons scope recently, The Model# is called "Simmons 22Mag" Scope, for a Ruger 10/22 that I own. The scope came with matching rings. The style of the clamps for the rings looked like it... more

        I had a simmons on a 30/3o for 10 years or so. Never had an issue, stayed true. I wouldn't hesitate for a minute if I found one that fit!
      • 24 ScopeScudrunner, Mon Nov 26 6:57pm
        Thanks... I'll look into that scope. The price sounds great.
