Any experience with Mueller optics? Login/Join 
I am working on some 22 projects that are all in need of optics. Mueller seems to have a good reputation in the rimfire world. Curious what the opinion of their products is here. Looking at the 8-32x44 side adjust target dot scope for a CZ 455, 2 MKII savages and 3 10/22s. All are range guns with heavy barrel and used for <100yds paper punching. I know it is excessive magnification, but it is purely for range/bench guns.

A Perpetual Disappointment...

The old Mueller APV scopes were very good bang for the buck on a rimfire
Not sure about current offerings, but I’d scrounge eBay for one of the older ones if it was me

I have two Mueller APVs 4.5-14X AO on a set of Ruger 10/22s set up for the kids. The glass is very clear and bright. It is a very good deal for rimfire rifles.
In my opinion, these scopes are perfect for use on the .22s for shooting at 50 yards. The kids easily ring steel 95% of the time when they shoot. Although not with no turrets to dial, the boy hits steel multiple times at 100 yards using his APV.
One of the APVs is about 8 years old. The other one was bought last month. Quality seems to be the same in both.
I have not been disappointed with purchasing them.

I'm seriously considering the 8-32x44 for my 10/22. It would be really nice for the 100 yard target.

Yes, Mueller are still considered very good bang for the buck scopes and the one the OP mentioned is still widely used in the rimfire realm. I own one and it worked just fine. If you are trying to make the smallest group possible at 100 yds with a 22 there is no such thing as too much magnification IMO.
A couple things about this particular optic. It's long, has a 30mm tube and is a bit fussy with the eyebox especially at high magnfication. What do you expect for ~$200.

A respected member over at RFC just happened to post this link for the exact scope ( I believe) you are asking about. $209. That's a darn good deal. I have no experience with the vendor, but trust the original source of the link. Good luck.

I have 3, 2 tacticals and 1 Eraticator.
For your stated use as range/bench, They are hard to beat at the price range.
As it has said, the eyebox is picky at high magnification but I have never had a problem when bench shooting.
