Exclamation M & P 15-22 scope

Hey folks! I am looking for a scope for my S & W, M & P 15-22 that will look over my factory iron sights so I won't have to take them off. Is this reasonably possible? If so, what's a good scope for this .22 in the $100ish price range?

any scope you decide will be higher than the irons, if you use extra high see through rings and maybe a riser. decent scopes for under 100 are utg leapers barska nc star primary arms and probably many more

what are you looking for in a scope? fixed power or variable? illuminated reticle or no? side focus or no? what type of reticle?

If you want one with built in .22LR bullet drop compensation I suggest the BSA Sweet 22 in either 3-9x40 or 6-18x40.

A good option would be a carry handle for the rifle and a scope with an integrated see-thru carry handle mount. You can also purchase a see-thru picatinny mount for the carry handle and then use any scope with rings. I prefer the integrated scope/mount because it keeps the scope lower.

The below carry handle and 4x scope can be purchased within your budget.



Here is the carry handle with a see-thru picatinny mount

I just catched an very old scope. Factory name is: L&S inc. Other text's are 'ULTRA 10X-M2a' and serial number. Reticle is.....different..., markings are 100-1000 and curved line's ( distance meter?).
I understood that it is a Leupold ( Leupold&Stevens). Can anyone tell more about it? Are reticle numbers for meters or yards? What is click value? What is it worth? I was going to put it to mp15-22, but sight is not very clear under 25m distance, so maybe not good for it. Sight is VERY clear for longer distances.
