Best Savage 64F Scopes – [Editor’s Choice]
1. Bushnell Trophy TRS-25 Red Dot Sight 1X20mm Riflescope
Trophy TRS-25 is one of the most sold scopes ever made. Bushnell really gave the community something they still adore. There is many good reasons for that as well. Just because it’s affordable, doesn’t mean it’s bad or doesn’t provide any value.
Made out of high-quality aluminum, this is a lightweight and compact scope made for hunting. It supports weaver rail by default but doesn’t come with a riser. You can buy a riser from Bushnell separately.
It’s water, shock, and fog proof. On top of that you have an illuminated red dot reticle. A very easy to use and understand reticle. Glass etched reticle on a multi-coated lens really helps a lot. There is no color alteration or blur edges present on the sight.
25mm objective lens is plenty big to gather all the light you may need to work with. Illuminated reticle certainly helps during low-light, but it’s not nearly enough to use during the night.
How long is the battery life?
Bushnell claims it’s around 3k hours. Even if it’s not 3k, you will easily get over 2.5k at least. And it helps that you can change the battery on the fly.
Can I use magnifier with this sight?
Sure, it’s essentially a reflex sight. With generous eye relief, it gives you the ballroom to play around with NVD or magnifier.
Can I use it on an AR-15?
Yes, it supports picatinny/weaver rail. You might want to invest on a riser if you are using it on an AR.
2. Simmons 3-9x32mm .22 Matte Black Riflescope
While having no co-relation to J.K Simmons, Simmons has been making optics for hunters for decades now. They make scopes for all budget and shooting ranges. The one we have here is a budget scope made for hunting. By default, it comes with a pair of dovetail mounting rings.
Made from aircraft-grade aluminum, Simmons did a good job making this scope rugged. You want a rugged and durable scope for hunting. If it’s a fragile unit, it won’t serve you well. Thanks to the rugged structure, this scope is fog, water, and shockproof. Something all scopes should be.
Fully multi-coated lenses performs sublime. You won’t have much to complain regarding the sight itself. They are crisp, vivid, bright, and color accurate. Everything you could want in a pair of lenses. Duplex reticle on the glass looks really clean as well. It’s an easy to use and understand reticle.
What is the difference between “new” and regular model?
Nothing, just a 10$ price difference. Basically, the same scope revised with no upgrades.
Is this good for big game hunting?
No, it’s good for small-game hunting and mid-range gun sighting. It’s not suitable to use with big guns or big-game hunting guns.
Can I change the mounting rings of this scope?
Absolutely. You can change the rings to weaver or picatinny. Or completely different thing if you so wish.
3. CVLIFE 3-9×40 R4 Reticle Crosshair Scope
Featuring R4 second focal plane reticle, CVLIFE has a really good offering for the Savage 64f. Capable of handling .22 LR like a champ, this is one riflescope to look out for.
CVLIFE used aluminum to build this scope. Aluminum is the most preferred material for making any sort of riflescopes. Rugged structure will protect this from any outside harm. Sealing of this scope is insanely good. Making it waterproof at the same time.
Fully multi-coated lens will keep the fog, rain, and dirt away from your scope. It also increases the total brightness of the scope by a lot. It also makes the scope perform better under low-light. That we can appreciate highly.
Easy to use reticle and easy to adjust the windage and elevation helps a lot. A total beginner friendly scope. Zeroing this scope requires a bit of patience but quite easy to do as well.
Does it support dovetail rail?
By default, it doesn’t support dovetail rail. You will need a separate pair of mounting rings for that.
Is it sock resistant?
Unfortunately, it’s not sock resistant. Better keep your sock away from it.
Can it be mounted on a 1” rail?
Yes, the default mounting ring is for 1” rail.

How To Choose The Best Scope For Savage S64 F
Choosing a scope requires a bit of prior knowledge about them. If you are going in blind and just want to have the best you could find, then keep some things in mind. They are:
We are buying a scope to shoot from range. If the scope doesn’t provide sufficient zoom, what are we supposed to do with that? I know 1x scope is more than enough for short-range scopes. But having more magnification with the Savage S64 F can help a ton.
There is a trend of using cheap components on a cheap scope. Good thing is most established companies don’t do cheap tricks like that. Try to buy a scope that has good reputation of solid build.
Lastly, most important part of the scope. The pair of lens you will see through. They have to be good. Don’t settle for “good enough” lens. It won’t be good enough down the line. Always go for good lens with clear image.
You shouldn’t buy a scope that is bigger than your scope rail. It will destroy the weight balance of the scope and make you shoot worse.
When it comes to scope, having a lighter scope can help in many ways. It helps with the weight distribution. It also helps with the aim and making you shake less. Which results in more accurate headshots. Most importantly, it won’t increase the weight of the gun by a lot.
Well, if you have made it this far, I’m sure you know which scope you are taking. There were plenty of scope for different budget and types of hunters. We can’t please them all and we can’t have them all. To have something, you need to lose something.
Honestly, you won’t miss out on much by choosing one scope from the list. No matter which one you choose, you will be a happy hunter with a good gun and a great scope.
I hope you found your best scope for Savage S64 F. Good luck with your hunting and have fun.
