Redfield has a $30.00 rebate on the 2-7X33 right now. I really like the 2-7X32 Nikon Prostaff and the Bushnell 1.5-4.5X32.

Burris 1x4 EER on my Guide Gun, looks almost identical to JD's picture above. I have not shot it in years, I may just load some 405's tonight and go to the range tomorrow.

I have a Leatherwood 2-7x on my Guide gun... shoot some pretty heavy loads and it shoots right on every time, in fact over the weekend I shot a .477 100 yd group with it!

My Leupold 1-4x20, 1.75-5x20, 2-7x33 and Redfield Revelation 2-7x33 have all served time on Marlin levers. Great field of view, eye relief and magnification combinations for a quick handling rifle.

I've had this Simmons scope on my Glenfield for about 10 years. No problems at all. It holds it zero year after year.

Simmons Whitetail Expedition 2x-8x.

Anybody tried any XS stuff like the XS Sight Systems Lever Rail Ghost Ring Sight for Marlin lever guns? I'm interested in their scout-length rail base for my 1895, but I'm not crazy about aluminum. I do like the fact that you can purchase their aperture rear sight.

I'm running a VX-III 1.5-5x20 on a DNZ mount. The DNZ is growing on me. I have not settled on a load yet for the CDS dial. I'd consider the VX-6 1-6x24 and it's generous FOV, if'n I had surplus funds.

Because of my older eyes, body, bones, ect, I took off the XS sight and put on a 4 Power Leupy. I have a 1895, 45/70. I also have a #1 in 45/90, with a 3 Power leupy.

The previous owner had used the orginal screws and a bondo like product to attach the rail. We had to drill out the front screw.

Might you be interested in parting with that XS Ghost Ring Sight that you took off your 1895? I might like to try it out on mine before I go the scope route. Thanks. John

Got her the other day and tricked here out.
Hooked her up with a 2x20 EER Nikon and a Wild West lever.
Now to work up a load.

I have a handful of Marlins with Leupold 1.5-5x20mm scopes in both VX-III and VX-3 variants. Excellent optics for the money and good enough for the limitations of most big bore calibers.

Right now my GBL just has factory irons....But I'm thinking about going with a Nikon Monarch African 1-4 with the German #4 Reticle...great scope at a great price. It would be the perfect scope for hunting here in Maine. It's either the Monarch or a Skinner Express peep sight.

Scopes on lever guns....something's just wrong with that! Ghost ring with a big ivory bead still works well for me! Yes, will cover up bullsye at 100 yds, but not much of a disadvantage when you're shooting at the Bull's these 45/70's were made to shoot at. Just my opinion!!

On my 1895SS 45/70 I have an old El Paso steel tube Weaver 2 1/2 power scope I bought off E-Bay. On my 336SC .35 Rem. I have another Weaver steel tube 4X I bought for 25 bucks at a gun show.
Both are entirely satisfactory for my use.

I like low-powered scopes mounted low over the bore. The gun balances and carries better, plus I get better stock contact with my cheek looking thru the scope. Here's my choices. All my Marlins use low Kwik Site rings with either Weaver or Kwik Site bases.

Marlin 336 .30-30, Weaver Classic 2.5X


Marlin 336SC .30-30, Lyman 3X


Marlin 336MX in .308 Marlin, 4X Leupold
