Hey CPTTANGO30--- I read your posting carefully, and I humbly ask a question. Marlin .30-30,

Catfish--- Thank you for the reply. I scoured the Leupold website, and couldn't find a 2.5x
with eye relief shorter than 9 inches. And I agree with c3shooter-- the 336 should have a scope
on the recei...

C3: Thanks for the reply. I found the Leupold FXII 2.5x28 IER Scout scope on Leupold's site.

Hey everybody-- thanks for all the replies. I took the information and called the gun history

I purchased a Marlin 336SS lever gun about 2 years ago. Beautiful gun, and more accurate than I
