My eyes are getting old like me and Im gonna have to put a scope on my 44 mag rifle. I know most of the lever guys will disagree but i just cant see through the irons that well anymore. What do the experts suggest???

I really like the Leupold FX models in either standard or scout configuration. The are light, clear, rugged and guaranteed forever. What's there not to like?

Have a Nikon 1.5-4 on the semi auto Ruger
Leupold of same power on a custom boltaction
Vortex 2-7 on another the 788
Leupold 2-7 Rifleman on a Winchester 94

Yes I am a 44Mag carbine fan for hunting deer and hogs, going to try the Vortes Strike Eagle on one of these just haven't decided which one.

The 2X7-32 are one of my favorite size scopes for most of the hunting I do. They gather more light than many of the lower magnification scopes if all else is equal and 2X is low enough power for close up hunting

1.5 x 4x weaver in Talley mounts on my Marlin 44mag. Had to add a leather cheek pad to the stock to get my head up where it needs to be. Any low power scope will do, I'd recommend getting a more forward type mount than the Talleys. I shoot it just fine but wish the scope was up a little further.

Yes, it was a Weaver 1-3. I love the open sights of a lever gun. But for this rifle I used it for night hunting pigs from a bow stand about 25-30 yards away from the feeder. I mounted a simple light to the scope so I could see for hunting at night. It worked great. I also took a turkey from 260 yards with my Marlin lever gun. First round hit at turkeys feet, then I adjusted up, and second shot dropped the walking turkey from 260 yards. Held the elevation and gave a little lead. I had shot this gun at 200 and 300 yards previously, and knew my holds for those distances. I drove up to my brothers feeder, and there were 2 dozen turkeys. I shot this bird from the hood of the truck. One of the coolest shots.

Here's a picture of my Marlin and the pic of the turkey that morning.

I have a friend that put a red dot scope on his for the same reason. No magnification but easier for him to see that the iron sights.

I kinda like that idea. I've scoped a couple of 336s and they worked fine, but to me a scope just doesn't look quite at home on a 94 or 336. I can't really imagine how one would look with an Eotech on it...maybe not so "right," but it seems like it would be awfully fast to get on target.
