    That's exactly what I found when I was just looking it up, but I figured i'd ask you guys for some other advice.

    I also hunt with a Marlin lever-action 30-30 and have taken all but one deer with it. I am going to upgrade the Simmons scope on it before next season and am researching scopes in the $100 range.

    I have a Simmons on my 2 muzzle loaders and there great for the price. And there very clear also.

    When my eyes were much younger I used a Lyman aperture ("peep") sight, usually removing the aperture disk for hunting so that the collar served as a "ghost ring". Very accurate, and there was no worry about fogging or bumping a scope off zero. They're easy to mount on Marlins.

    Wish I still had my 336 in .30-30, even though health and old age no longer permit me to hunt. It was a fine rifle, but that was forty years ago.

    Ny Marlin .30-30 is not scoped. I have a really nice old Marlin 336 in .35 Remington that is wearing a 1970's model 3X Weaver. It still provides an excellent, clear view. I don't take it out often, but when I do it works very well for me.

    +1 for not using a scope. It's a waste of money on a 30-30. Even with a scope, the round is only a 100 or 150 yard round at best.

    That means, of course, you'll have to learn to shoot at those ranges. You'll also have to learn to hunt well enough to close the distances on your game so you can get those ranges on your game. No substitute for hunting skill, regardless.

    No offense intended, either. It's just that we see plenty of effort put into acquiring gear rather than acquiring skill. Another reason I kinda chuckle when I see people putting scopes on pistols.
