    I use a weaver set up and really like it. It uses their standard one piece mount with some "strap" style rings that use screws to hold the scope on one side. I think it keeps torque off the tubes that twist on rings can cause.

    Re: scope mounts?

    There is a huge variety of scope rings and bases for the Marlin 336 type action; they are made in aluminum and machined steel, and can be found in black, satin blue, and stainless steel. Prices can run any where from about $8-10 for see-thru ring/base units (some folks here would give you a set of those) up to $70-80 for the machined steel quick-detachable jobbies. I personally like the Leupold 336R one-piece steel base and matching rings appropriate to scope height. Below is my 308MX with Leupold scope and mounts and its first deer.

    Good advice given by DD and Rach... you may want to invest in a fat wrench. You won't need as much torque on the screws as you might think.

    Do you have the part number for your scope mount? I bought a .338 MXLR and need a scope mount. All the part numbers I find are for 336's or Does it matter?

    Yes, 336 mounts will fit your 338 MXLR.

    I guess I am odd man out here, I use the basic Weaver mount and Quad-loc rings on all my Marlins. Never had one lose zero due to rings or mounts, the 1895 G has destroyed a few good scopes with recoil, but the rings have always held zero and never budged. I have them on 308MX 338MX and 1895 45-70.

    If you like something that is simple, strong, lightweight, and has clean lines then you owe it to yourself to take a look at the Talley line of products. They are made with the base and the rings as a single component and eliminate the exra place for them to work loose since they are made together. Depending on where you look you can usually get them for around $40 or so on sale. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the Weaver style base and rings and nostalgia (as well as functionallity) has got them a permanent place on some of my Marlins. Another great set of "cleanlines" (appearance) is any Weaver style base with Burris Zee rings. No one has mentioned anything That has not worked well for years but this will give you some more options. Remember that you usually "get what you pay for."

    I use the DNZ Gamereaper med. height one-piece mount/rings for just about all of my lever guns. It's a great system.
