Re: To Scope or Not To Scope (Marlin 336)....
I don't like a scope on a lever or pump gun,seems to upset the balance, but that may just be me. I like a peep, and Williams sights makes one that will probably mount to the marlin without any smith work. My eye sight will no longer allow me to use a open sight but have no problem with a peep. If you do decide to go with a scope, get a low power fixed or variable, low end being 1 or 2 power. The 336 is a brush gun, up close and personal, the peep or low power scope will allow you to use it as such, both are good out to 100 to 200 yards depending on your eye sight.
The way that you wander is the way that you choose,
The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder.
Where the fair wind blows.
