I bought my son a Henry Lever action 30-30 recently. Although he loves the thought of open sites, he wants to go ahead and put a scope on it.

This is the first lever-action that I've ever put a scope on. Any suggestions for a decent one? Also...fixed or variable?

Thanks!

If it was mine and I was going to scope it, I'd put a Leupold on it, either a 2-7 variable or a fixed 6x. Congrats on a sweet gun!

Me personally, I would put a Leupold 2-7x. I like having having a low power option for hunting in thick brush.

a 28mm leupold 2-7x is the perfect scope for this setup!

if it were mine, i'd have you kick me in the mouth for my blasphemous speech/thoughts of defacing a lever gun......... somethings just don't go together like a football bat..

Haha, this comment reminds me of those medieval religious floggers. Closer to God by flogging yourself?!??!?

Anyways, on my late my model marlin 336 I have a Bushnell legend but the same 2-7x32. Love the combo. Totally agree in general that a small 2-7 power is the best thing.

Id probably go with a fixed 6X if he wanted to.

Personally the quote below reflects my sentiments on scopes and lever guns.

You can get a Burris Fullfield II 2-7x35 for around $165.00. Had one for several years and it was excellent. Would still be using it but bought a Leupold VX-3 1.75-6x32 for it. Now that is a scope.

My first scope was a 2X7 and it is still one of my favorite magnification ranges for hunting.

Another vote for the leupold 2-7 here. Or the leupold FX-II 4x33. I recently bought a couple of the FX series scopes one a 4x the other a 6x. I am very impressed with the glass. The 4x compact is 9 ounces and the 6x is 10. Most fixed power scopes are more durable than most variable power scopes. I bought these for the weight and durability to go on encore barrels.

I have a Leupold fixed 6x scope on my 30-30 and really like it.
