Leupold seems to really grab light better than most and that helps with resolution. VXI or VXII would be a good choice for price compromise. 3-9 or 4-18. However, the 3-9X30 will be less costly. Myself I will tend to break the bank on good optics. Leupold's waranty is real good also.

I've decided not to scope it.

I disassembled and cleaned it and put the receiver back together. Now that the wood is refinished, the bluing looks like crap. So...
I know a guy with a body shop that likes guns and has sprayed DuraCoat on his AR's.

He wants the wood on his Mini 14 refinished, so we'll do a trade. I'll refinish his stock and he'll spray the Marlin.

I'm pretty sure that I'm going to have it sprayed black. This rifle isn't particularly collectible or even worth that much, I'm not a purist and I think it will look pretty good. So, it should be interesting.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams
