Iíve got one on an 1895 Marlin 45/70. Perfect for the job that rifle was meant to do. Iíve shot a lot of critters with it ranging from 30 yds to 135 yds. The fixed 4x gives you plenty of field of view up close for quick shots in cover, and makes the longer shots a little easier, especially when the lightís starting to fade. Itís held zero well, and is small enough to not look too out of place on a levergun.
