Pew pew pew.

Loosely mounted the cheapy scope I had in the closet. I just sold all my scope mounting equipment (DOH!) so I need to take it somewhere to have it all leveled and locked down for me.

I have a T/C Encore Pro Hunter - Inline M/L in SS. I absolutely love this gun. It is just fun to shoot. Accurate as hell. I also like the fact you can easily swap out barrels and pick up just about any common caliber barrel for it. Yes, they can be pricey but they are worth it IMO. I actually picked mine up on MGO for $550 with a 28" Fluted 30.06 barrel and only 20 or so rounds through it - spotless essentially. I have since added the 209 x 50 barrel and use this very often during firearm season, not just for M/L season.

Marlin 336 30/30 circa 2003 or so. Stocks were MUCH lighter color when it was new. That's about 10 years of routine oiling on it. Purdy.

Is the scope offset? If not how do you let the hammer down?

Winchester 94 requires an offset scope mount due to the top eject as opposed to the side eject of the Marlin.

Nice. I was thinking about putting a scope on my inherited mid-40s Model 94, but don't think old Grandpa up in Heaven could deal with that blasphemy.

I'm guessing it's not even tapped for a mount?

If it is already tapped then just go ahead and throw a scope on there... but if it requires drilling of the receiver... leave it alone.

Correct, not tapped. Only reason I was thinking about it is because I can't bring it down on target and I want to shoot a deer with it. It shoots consistently high with the rear site all of the way down and the pin buried in the notch. Grandpa said before he died that they were the original sights. I can hold low but I've always preferred to put the pin on the point of impact. *shrug*

A word to the wise, if you go the lever action route and want to mount a scope on a model 94 look for a later model with angle ejection otherwise you have to resort to a side mount scope

For Midwestern hunting, Marlin is the way to go - simpler, less trouble-likely mechanism, side eject to accommodate optics, and lower price for similar quality. Marlin micro-bore barrel is a bonus.

.30-30 is a great deer cartridge, and fun to shoot in general.

With muzzleloaders, I'm fussy. The lower-priced foreign makes have had quality/safety issues, making me a Thompson-Center, Knight, Savage, or Ruger kinda guy.

Well, almost.


I got an LHR Redemption this year, and it is awesome. It's literally the next generation of muzzleloader, designed by the people who used to design Thompson-Centers (T-C was bought out by S&W). Not cheap, however.

I have a T-C Black Diamond you can have for $125 (with 3-9 scope)...
