    Scope for a 1894 357 carbine

    All:

    Sorry I didn't use the search engine real well, but I have a question concerning scoping a 1894 lever 357 carbine. Since the cartridge doesn't have the "depth" of a higher round, what would you suggest for a scope that matches up well with the cartridge (maybe 150 to 200 yards out?).

    I'm looking for what will work well with the Marlin with a 357 shell, aim nice, and be a reasonable counterpart to the carbine. I hope someone can provide real world experience to my question. I'm looking for a suitable aiming device for this carbine (which in the past, has really treated me well).

    Many thanks to you all.

    Tom

    I just mounted a 4X32 scope on my 1894C to use to work up a couple 357 loads. It actually doesn't look bad. It doesn't overpower the gun. On the other spread is a Burris scope I really like.

    I'd go for my general favorite levergun scope, a Bushnell 1.5 - 4.5 x 32 scope, either a Banner or an Elite 3200 depending on which you can afford.

    Brian, I was looking at one of those in Cabela's. I think if I permanently scope the 1894C, I'm going to go with the Elite 3200. Seems like a great little scope.

    I want the 1894 to be a gun I use a lot for both target shooting and taking game.

    Good choice.
