    Have a Leupold 1.5 - 5 VariXIII with heavy duplex cross hairs on my Deerfield. You're limited a little of what type of scope you can mount due to the fixed location of the rings and the gun ejects from the top of the receiver. If you put on anything too big, not only will it look strange, but ruin the handling of the gun and could interfier with the ejection of empty cases..
    Don't think the .44 mag needs much of a high power. Normally just use the 1.5 on mine unless shooting for fun at the gravel pit. suggest you keep the power low and the scope small in order to take advantage of the .44 carbine.
