The scope seems a little over the top.
In effective range, for the average shooter,
you're looking at what ? 200 yards with a
.44. I put a Holo sight on my Marlin, it's
lighter, quicker on target, and sights to the
ability of the gun.
I paid 500$, NIB, for a Marlin a lot like the one
in the OP, without any scope. So if it's as nice up
close as it is in the picture, and the barrel is clean,
it looks like a great deal.
But your max range hunting would probably be
200 yards, tops.
