Levergun scopes

At my advanced age (soon to be 61), I find a low powered scope to be really handy on a levergun; I have a Leupold 1.5-5x on my 444P and an older Weaver K2.5x on my 1895G.



And like 303lithgow said; the gun list "always ends with 'just one more'."

My leverguns before I added my 1895G, the 444P on the right is the rifle on the left in the above pic wearing a Leupold now.

L-R; Marlin 336C .30-30, Win 94 SRC .30-30, Mossberg 472 .30-30, Win 94 Classic .30-30, Marlin 336SC .32 WS, Marlin 336C .35 Rem, Win 94 XTR .375 Win, Marlin 444P .444 Marlin. The 1895G Guide Gun in the first pic is a .45-70 Gov't.

If you decide not to use the peep sight, please consider pricing it to me. I am wanting one for a 1980 Marlin 30-30 I recently bought. I think it's something I'd like to try.

I'd love to see more pics of the revolver! It's in great condition from what I can see. Nice find on the pair!
I like the scale of gun to scope on yours . What I would really like to do if possible is mount a scope above the sight just in case for backup but I'm not sure if I could make it look right . I will post more pics of that wheel gun later.

Nice collection of lever guns there! I have a Weaver 2.5 power on my Marlin 1894 CB rifle .357. Wanted the Leupold but wow expensive. I bought the Weaver 2.5 micro-trac for $60.00

How about a description of what you have there? Models and calibers. A good friend of mine has three Henry's, .357, .44, and .45.
I never get tired of looking at and talking about others guns.

Left to right; Browning BL22, Henry Big Boy and Ruger New Vaquero - both in 45colt, and a pre-safety Marlin 336 in 30-30.
I don't remember what I needed so badly that it caused me to trade my Winchester 94 Trapper. I'm sure I miss it less than I miss that Winchester.

I love lever guns too.

Seems to me one could put together a collection of lever actions to cover every type of North American game.

Between Winchester, Marlin, Henry, Browning, Rossi and a few others there are so many fine choices.

Too bad Ruger isn't interested in Lever actions.

Great Deal!

As far as scopes go, check out the Leupold FX-II 2.5x20 (thats what is on the chopped XLR in my 1st pic), or a Weaver V3 1-3x20 is always a great choice for a levergun as well (2nd pic).
