Lots of options depending on the scope you will purchase?
The scope that you choose will help dictate the specific bases you need....low, med or high based on the scope objective size. You can also get see through scope mounts which allow you to use both your scpoe and the iron sights.Im not too particular on which scope. Probably 3-9 of some kind.
This is my set up on my 35 rem . 2x7x32 Nikon is perfect for me2x7x32 will keep the weight down and is plenty for the 100 yrd rifle that it is. I have tried the 3x9's and it makes it seem bulky with no real advantages except maybe late dusk light gathering. The weaver base will work just fine
Trappers Friend who did all the work for Browning, did the stock on this gun. It's a lot nicer look'n in person. 1961 336 SC, and it's a shooter. I would not scope an 1894, but something about the marlins makes them a good rifle for a light power scope.Love the "no glare" on the wood!
