Slooowww process on getting my M1G. I renewed my CCW and sent in my membership app to the MGA to fulfill the requirements. As soon as I get my membership card from MGA, I'll be placing my order. I heard that they are a few months behind so hopefully I get it by fall. Don't plan to hunt with it but hope to shoot it a few times before the grips of winter set in.

I read an article on Marlins 336c in 30-30 . Instead of walnut the wood is curly maple . Looks real sharp . Looked them up on gun broker  , and there were two of them for about thousand . Considering the regular ones are about 400 , guess I won't be getting one .

Big Mac, This is a Leupold VX-1 (3 X 9 X 40mm). I don’t use it for long range. 100 yds is about all I’d go on this one.
Take a look at the Leupold VX-3i (3.5 X 10 X 40mm) and the 50mm of the same model. Read the reviews. Then take a look at the other scopes in the same class, and read everything about them. Top 5  rifle scopes under $500. You‘LL see the Leupold, but take a good look at the other 4. I would never say they aren’t as good as good as the Leupold. I said I had a soft spot for them. Do your due diligence and read about all 5 including reviews. Something will click in your mind about 1 or 2 of them. I don’t know if you’d be satisfied with a 2 X 7 after the fact @ 100yds. I may be wrong.

Honestly I don't see any reason,  that I can't get a top quality scope for $400 & under price range.

I don't think I need any more power than 2 x 7. I have MORE concern with the kick/force.

Am I wrong!?

You can spend $2000+ on a Leupold if you want. But you don’t have too to have a professional grade scope. Paddle Power knows too

I agree with Snakester, need your intended use for better suggestions. Do you prefer lower or higher magnification? Also what is your budget?

I'll throw out one suggestion, Leupold VX3i 1.5-5x20. I'm a Leupold fan as the tend to be on the lighter side of the weight scale. 

If you got deep pockets Khales then Swarovski.

Edit: just realized you included bear hunting. I would definitely stay towards the lower magnification side then. Something with a 1x or 1.5x on the low end of the magnification range.

Also, what kind of money are you looking at? There is good scopes in all price ranges. It’s hard for me to chime in without knowing. I should have included that in my last post. My favorite has always been Leupold. They have scopes in every price range, but for what your looking at, you might want something that’s good for a little longer range than 100yds. Bigger is always better for what you’re talking about. I can chime in with a couple recommendations after I know what you want to spend.

Thanks Snakester.

I would like to use it on my next bear hunt & doe hunt. So I would say most shots would be under 100 yards.

Maybe for still hunting & quick acquisition of my target. 

Thanks,

Big Mac

You didn’t mess up this thread At all!!! Try giving a little more information like normal distance you’re comfortable targeting objects or game. Or distance you have set goal for accuracy.
Your question is fine as it is firearm related. Accessories.
