I admit I have no personal experience w/ this scope as don't have a scope made by UTG. Nevertheless, I wouldn't recommend one. UTG appears to be made by Leapers. From what I've read Leapers doesn't have much of a reputation for reliability. On a lower recoiling gun like a 223 Rem or 22 LR, I imagine most of the scopes will be ok. Put them on a heavier recoiling gun and I bet one will begin to see problems. Your gun is a 22 so you'll probably be ok so risk it if you want. Since it's just a plinking gun, at least you won't have to worry about the scope failing during a big game hunt or a self defense situation. I'm reminded of the time I put a NcStar handgun scope on a T/C Contender handgun chambered in a round similar to the 308 Win. I'd read all kinds of great reviews from other handgun hunters. After,100 rounds my scope went belly up, resulting in a wounded deer that couldn't be recovered. I sent it back to the factory and they replaced it. I put the replacement on a 22 LR and it's been ok so far. I've not bought an NcStar since nor will I ever do so. If you choose to get it, be sure you've made an informed decision of what you may be getting in to.
