My wife and two of my sons completely surprised me on Christmas Day with a Marlin 336 in .30-30 Win. I was floored!
Anyways, while the shock and excitement have not worn off, my brain has engaged and I'm already thinking about upgrading the factory sights.
I'm not at all experienced with rifle optics, and want to get some wisdom on this purchase. This is going to be a plinking / patrol rifle. I'm not hoping to go out past 200 yds with it.
Here's my question:
Would peep sights be adequate for 100 - 200 yds? If so, I was thinking about a set of Willilams sights for ~~$70?
If not, I saw this house-brand scope in Cabella's that was specifically designed for Hornady LeverRevolution ammo:
Cabela's Pine Ridge Lever-Action Riflescope
The scope costs $99. I'm always a little suspect about house-brand stuff unless I'm familiar with it. I plan to reload, and would probably buy the Hornady bullets.
Thanks in advance for your advice.
