    Can y’all tell me what is a good scope and ring setup you’re using for the Wildcat?  I would be looking in the $200 or less price range.  

    Much appreciated.

    The Leapers/UTG accushot 4-16×56 with 30mm tube and side focus should be a good scope for that price range. It runs around $180 but look around for the cheapest price. Get some 30mm accushot mounts for $15 and you should be ready to shoot. Good luck.

Low, medium, or high rings?

    Is this the scope you’re talking about?

    The scope i am talking about has a 56mm objective lens here is the Amazon link http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B007IPBL62/ref=s9_simh_gw_d0_g200_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=mobile-1&pf_rd_r=0YG3M8ZZA3FVQYQKJKPX&pf_rd_t=36701&pf_rd_p=2068141862&pf_rd_i=mobile

    and you will more than likely need high mounts but I am not 100% sure that medium wouldn’t work. You might try and find some demensions and measure.

    why go with such big and heavy scopes on a small and nimble gun as the wildcat ?

    personaly i would be going budget way i would have taken a hawke varmint sf in the size best suited .

    thet go in 3-12 , 4-14 6-24 .. all with 44 mm objective

    nice and clear , with half mill reticle

    havke medium rings will do very well .

    Well, I think I’m narrowing it down to either the:

    Link – Accushot 3×12 44mm Etched Glass Compact

    or

    Link – Accushot 3×12 44mm Etched Glass Full Size

    Not sure which size would be/look best for the Wildcat??

    The full size is very similar to what I have mounted … 4x16x44, same line of scopes,pic for an idea of size

    Okay, that is EXACTLY what I was looking for and your Wildcat looks awesome.  I’m definitely going with the full size scope.  Might even go with the 4×16 version as well which should work with some hunting and target shooting.  Thank you for clearing up this issue for me.  

    What is your one-piece ring set?  I think I would like the scope a smidgen lower to the barrel.

    Only slightly above your budget, but I find my MTC Viper Connect 3-12×32 superb for my Wildcat.
    I found a pre-loved example for $240. I have not quite worked out whether I prefer medium or high mounts with it.

    Well, I went with this scope.  Not a lot of reviews yet, but it’s a Leapers Accushot 2-16x44mm Etched Glass Illuminated Reticle.  Part number:  SCP3-216AOIEW

    Hope it does the trick!
