I found a Weaver V3 1X3-20 and I want to put it on a Marlin 1894 44 mag rifle. These scopes have been discontinued by Weaver a few years ago. I'm concerned about 20 diameter size. Are these good scopes and will they take the recoil of the 44 mag? Thanks

The 20 should be the objective lens with standard 1 rings. I have no idea about durability. Weaver itself has been said to be closing the doors for good. I have no facts to back that up.

My Marlin 44 mag lever gun wears a Weaver 1-3x20 scope. It has for years. The only reason I put a scope on my lever gun was to hunt pigs a night with a light mounted to the scope tube. It worked great. Now that I'm using thermal scopes on AR's, I think it's time to go back to open sights and shoot that lever gun in a more traditional style. (But I did love the scope on the 44 Mag. I also killed a turkey at 260 yards with it, also!).

Here you go! Marlin 44 Mag lever rifle, Weaver 1-3 scope, shooting 240 grain XTP's at 1760 fps. I knew my drop on this round out to 300 yards, and held elevation for the 260 yard shot. I hit at his feet on the first round, and killed him on my second shot. If I miss on my first shot... don't give me second shot!

That's some good info there. I appreciate y'all responding to my question. I guess I better buy the Weaver and get it mounted and sighted in. I haven't heard about Weaver closing down. Maybe they'll figure it out and keep going. Thanks again
