    So my Marlins have finally captured my attention away from my Mosin. I have my 795 all squared away. What kind of options do I have for mounting a scope on my 336? I really like my iron sights so I would like to be able to use them too.

    Even though they designed the 336 to be scoped...I think they look WAY better with a tang sight :)

    YES!!!!!

    Finally, a man who talks sense!!!! If someone doesn't like the iron sights then a tang sight is the way to go on a lever gun. Optics are a great option and I have a scope on my marlin. BUT I do not believe in see thru mounts. Bad compromise of design trying to be appealing to everyone. JMHO

    How reliable are the see thru scope mounts? I just want see thru's because I have some nice glo sights on my rifle and want to be able to use them for quick shots but i also want a scope because I find it more fun to shoot with scopes plus at longer ranges obviously they help.

    Decent, but here's the hook about using see-thru's...you end up with a scope higher above the barrel, which can lead to odd parrellax problem with distance shooting.

    Once you sight it in at a certain range, it will be Dead On at that range.
    You then have to ignore your parrellax adjuster & shoot at different
    ranges to find out how high/low it will be at various other distances.

    Mil-Dot scopes make that kind of work a LOT easier, but you have to memorize the distance variations.

    Although, in Florida...since it's heavy brush in most places, rare to shoot over 100 yards.

    The Ladder/Soule type of sight, you just mark the ranges that it shoots on it with a paint pen.
    If you do it in 50-yards increments, it makes for fast, easy adjustments :)
    However, if you do that, it's set for ONE specific type of ammo. Other weight bullets will act differently.
