    I've got a Ruger Impact Max .22 pellet rifle that I bought and it has a rail mounted on it and also has iron sights. What would be a good scope to put on it for ground squirrels and rabbits around our garden and yard? I'm not wanting to buy anything high end but would like something that will last. I've also got a Gamo .177 pellet rifle with a scope and rhe scope is junk.

    Would a red dot work with the pellet rifle?

    I have a UTG 3-9x with lit reticle on my .22 Benjamin Mayhem. I believe it is the Bugbuster model. I rarely use the lit reticle and they may not actually sell them any longer. Find a pellet that your air rifle is accurate with and be aware that changing pellet weights can change your vertical impact point quite a lot, even at relatively close distances. My rifle likes H&N Hornets at 16.2 grains. A red dot can work, but you get what you pay for.
