Hunting Scope for 45-70

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a Marlin 1895 45-70 and after an afternoon of shooting I decided that I don't much care for the sights on it and am looking for a decent scope to put on it. I plan on using it mainly for deer hunting and looking for something with low magnification, possibly adjustable as long as a magnification of 2 or smaller is possible. any suggestions from anybody on what to go with? Something decent yet relatively cheap. Thanks.

A buddy of mine used to have a Model 94 Timber Carbine in .444 Marlin.  He had a 0x on it.  No magnification.  Just a medium duplex reticle.  I think it was a Nikon.  No idea if they still make them.  But it was PERFECT for that rifle !!!!

Something in a 1-4x would be my hcoice.

All I can say is if you can afford the $300 go for Hawke 30mm 1-4×24 with IR. You get what you pay for with optics, and with $350 you can get a decent scope.

Go elletbrothers there you'll get a article on the best scope for 45-70, that will help you to take the right decision.
