I'm in the market for a 22 magnum and was glad to see that NEF made a Sportster model( handi-rifle clone ) in 22 magnum. Unfortunately, it only comes with iron sights, no scope rail or drilled and tapped for one. ( They do offer a rail on the 17 caliber). Given the fact that 22 magnum is a varmint round and therefore is usually set up for a scope, I don't understand why NEF doesn't offer that configuration. If they did I would buy it in a second. Any thought /explanations? Thank you for your time and expertise.
