 I have always liked higher power scopes. You can always turn down a 6x24 to 6 power, but you can't turn a 3x9 to 24 power.
 The use and range would also dictate what scope to use.

I just installed a Vortex Crossfire II 6-18 x 44 on my 457 with the 20.5” bull barrel.

Here’s a pic.

I have that same scope on my AR-15. I haven't shot it yet but I do like it. I think you'll like it with the AO
Thanks

It’s not heavy at all for me. I used to have a 4-12 x 40 but I sold it to get the 6-18 x 44AO.

 I have a Crossfire II 6-18X44 on my 457 MTR 20 1/2" barrel 22lr and I've been happy with it.

A 6-24X scope is ideal, IMO.  Try a Hawke Airmax Compact, Aztec Emerald, Athlon Midas Tac, Element, or others.

  What scope mounting setup did you use?

I used a pair of 1” rings to install the scope. I also used purple Loctite and everything’s solid.

What height rings? Were they Vortex rings?

Medium rings.

It’s this pair of cheap Amazon rings. It’s only for a .22 so no need for an expensive pair.
