Default Rimfire scope - Looking for input

I've got a Winchester model 190 that I picked up for my daughter and I to do some plinking and squirrel hunting with.

I'd like some recommendations for an inexpensive rifle scope.

I have a weaver 4x on the single shot 22lr she uses now. I love that set up.

Any thoughts for the 190?

I put a BSA red dot on a Marlin model 60. Cost about $30 and is amazingly accurate and easy to use. Just goes through batteries in 4-8 hrs depending on which brightness setting you use.

since the recoil is so light, you don't have to spend much.

I put this (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1) on my 10/22 bull barrel setup. I have been banging plates at 140 yards with it (accouting for drop obviously). I have it zeroed at 25 yds.

why not just put the 4x on that one? I'd prefer something with a large reticle, with a great variance in eye relief, to be able to get on target from initial viewing of squirrel or maybe rabbit with.

Well, I found a Bushnell 3x9x40 that I picked up for next to nothing. It's probably more scope than I need for that gun, but I could pass it up for the price.

I may end up putting the weaver 4x on this gun and the Bushnell on the single shot.

The single shot is an older Remington and it's a tack driver, might be fun to play with a larger scope and further distance.

I've been impressed with the model 190 so far. We put about 250 rounds through it this weekend and it's a lot of fun to shoot. I does not like hollow points.
