Marlin 336 30/30 20 barrel

I got a 3x9x40 on rifle but feel it’s to bulky, looking for y’all thoughts on something in the 2x7x33 range.

If your wanting something smaller I would look at a nice fixed 4 power scope.

If you want something small/compact why not try a red dot? Plenty accurate out to 30-30 ranges

I have a Leupold 2-7x33 on my 35 Marlin. Goes together like peas and carrots.

That’s what I was looking at but which model did you go with?
I wanted to try a vx-r but it’s 30mm , I have a 1” Dnz one piece scope mount I wanted to use.

I feel like the 2-7 is perfect for a lever gun.

I have a 2-7X33 Redfield Revolution on my 45-70 Henry rifle. That size scope is a good fit...not too bulky and providing a good range of magnification.

Be careful to keep the mounting position as low as possible otherwise the comb height will be to low.

Agree....I ended up using Warne m864 bases along with a set of low rings to get a more comfortable cheek purchase on the stock with the scope.

Mine is a Vx1. i'm wanting to say it was like $150ish.

The above Redfield is another solid choice IMO. I have mine in a 1 piece DNZ mount.

I looked at that same scope before buying the Redfield. The optics were nice. Just had more experience with the Redfield Revolution line. It was a hard choice between the two though.

Funny you should mention that:

and

I just ordered these for my marlin 336 Texan, specifically for deer and hogs.
