What scope for a marlin 1894 .44 mag rifle?

Postby NapaRon on Thu Feb 12, 2009 12:52 pm

Understand I should use a "compact" scope for my Marlin model 1894 .44 mag rifle. If this is true I'd be grateful for recomendations as to brand, model, etc.

Thanks,
Ron

A small scope goes well on a handy little rifle like that. That doesn't mean they'll be labelled 'compact.' You don't need a lot of magnification at 44 ranges, and low magnification helps get on target fast. Look for something in a 1-4x20 to 2-7x32 or so. There are lots to choose from, in a variety of price ranges.
Check out Leupold, Nikon, and Bushnell.
Some of them are marketed as shotgun or muzzleloader scopes. They'll work fine on a 44.
