I have the UTG 3-12x32 SF non-IR on a 2289, so far no issues at all. Focus down to 3 yards and very good glass for the money. Also have the Hawke Airmax 2-7x32 SF on a Diana 24C, as clear as my 3-9x40 SF Airmax, and bullet proof.
I love that UTG Bugbuster that I have on my AEA HP 25 cal semi auto.

The newer Bug Buster AO models have a finer Reticle then the older models. Nothing is more compact or lighter.

Let's change this up a bit.  How about a fixed 4X scope?  I've got an old Nikon Prostaff rimfire scope on my 10/22 and it would work perfectly; however, it is no longer manufactured. 😥

I had a look at this one (didn't buy it though), a Leupold FX-1 4x28, parallax-free @ 60yards: https://www.leupold.com/fx-i-rimfire-4x28-fine-duplex-riflescope

This is the Hawke that I put on my Hw50. It's a 100 yard parallax but if you down the center it's a non issue. I was shooting it 25 yards today. It's hard to find a rimfire scope with a mildot or BDC reticle. I think Vortex has a couple. The BDC or mildot reticles are most helpful with air rifles.

Only know about them from reading here and you'd have to find a few shooters that own them to get their opinions but SWFA makes fixed scopes but from looking at their website myself, the smallest they have is 6x.
