Put a new scope on my Marlin 25....

Took my Marlin to the range yesterday to sight in the new scope. I replaced the airgun type scope that its had on it for years. Just felt I needed a slightly better scope. Spent all of $33.00 (including tax) for the Bushnell rimfire scope that's on it now. Its a 4X32mm fixed power. Bore sighted the scope out my back door before heading to the range. Only two inches off the bullseye at 50 yards. Had the thing zeroed within 6 shots. Moved target to 25 yards and proceeded to place 5 shots in a clover leaf that measured less than 1/2 and inch across. I can't complain about that. The squirrels had better watch out this season.

I swear it doesn`t matter what scope you put on a Marlin .22, they shoot really well or better. I have always used $50 and under scopes on my Marlin .22`s and have taken many squirrels with them.

I'm a huge fan of the Model 25 as well. I have a Bushnell rimfire 3-9 on mine and it's a tack driver.

Forgot to mention, I was using CCI Mini-Mag hollow points in the gun. My favorite squirrel ammunition. Once shot to the head with one of these pills, and its all over for Mr. Squirrel.
