Was going to mount a Burris AR536 but it sits too high. Any favorite scopes for pistol caliber lever guns ?

I put a little Leupold rimfire on mine. I believe it’s 4x.

I have used the Weaver 1-3x20 but settled on a Leupold VX2 1-4x20

I Like Leupold fixed power scopes. I use the FX-II in 4x32 and FX-III in 6x40. Both are lite weight and have very serviceable glass for legal light hunting in the woods. One of mine is a 1894 45 Colt, it wears the 4x. Stuffed with H110 and a 300g bullet I would think it very similar to your 44 mag. The 4x is plenty for any range those calibers are useable at.

Some type of low profile red dot. Theyre small and excellent to smack things with out to the effective range of a 44mag rifle. I put the cheap Bushnell trs 25 red dot on an Marlin SBL 44 mag and its a fun little carbine.

Most of my Marlins wear Leupold 1-4x20 or 1.5-5x20 scopes. The weaver 1-3x20 is another good option along with the older 1.5-4x20 Nikon.


Keep moving forward!

I like the Leupold VX-Freedom 1.5-4x20 with the Pig Plex reticle on my 1894.

I have a Nikon Monarch 1-4x 20mm tube on my 1894. Looks good and works great. German #4 reticle.
