:) Let it begin!

Not sure what I want yet...maybe just a simple scout scope. Maybe Leupold's new hog VX-r with the "pig plex"...

Pigs are definitely on the dance card, though i want it to be an all-around good rifle.

I highly reccomend the VX-r ! I have a 2-7 and a 1-4 and they are great optically and technicly. Also that unbeatable warranty.

I have 2 Rifles with the Leupold 2.5X Scout scopes on them and 1 With the Leatherwood Hi Lux 2x7 Scout. I like them both . The leatherwood is my favorite. It's much better glass than the price indicates.

I put a Burris fastfire 2 on my 45/70 along with skinner sights. Pop off the burris and iron sights it is, burris re mounts zeroed in at the same spot quickly.
Northern California Pig's dont like it.

Love my VXR 1x4

Great on an AR and a lever IMHO

Thanks for the input y'all. I'm still on the prowl. :)

I think a good 1-4 is probably the way I'll go...

Hi aHF03,

it's an XS sights "Lever Rail" :

There's also a "Lever scout" mount which is a bit more abbreviated.

Thanks SwissArmyDad, it looks like XS streamlined the rail. Earlier models seemed to cover the barrel up to the wood in the fore end.

I put a Leopold M8 EER on my Marlin.

Bought it off eBay for less then $100 bucks.

It works great!
