Let us know how you like it. I have a Williams on mine, and am not likely to change since it does well by me. But I am always willing to hear what works for other folks.

Red Dots

Gents,
I've got a couple on my Marlins, and love them. The trick is to find a small one,,,,, the standard 5 MOA dot is MUCH to big for my tastes, but there is a cheapo 3MOA that is ideal out to about a 100 yards. Runs about $30, called 'Target Sports'. Not the greatest, but holding up well to everything I've thrown at it, and for the price, well worth the experiment.
Take a look at Gunbroker or the like. Bushnell does an $80 version that has several different reticles, from all reports a higher quality version that is worth looking at. These both come with rings, and simple install on a standard weaver base. Parallax free and I find very fast and ez to use. In VERY bright light on a white background, eg at the range, they can be difficult to pick up. But in the woods, especially low light dawn dusk, you can't beat 'em!
Cheers,
R*2
