Will this mount work on my .308MXLR:
Weaver Scout Scope Mount Kit - Marlin 336

Or will I wind up having to take off the rear iron sight to accommodate for the size of it?

Or am I better off to go with this one?:
Weaver 63B/63BS Top Mount Base - 48069/48447 for Marlin 45


Or do you guys have some that you really like better than either of these?


I don't mind the size of the second one, I just wish it had more slots to be able to adjust where the scope rings can be in case eye relief is an issue.

leupold makes a base like the 63b,it has 3 slots rather than 2 .some folks cut a slot to suit them with saw and file.i have the leupold base for 336 with leupold aluminum rings on my 308 mx,about 30 bucks for the set.

Been using the second ones for years..... I have them on all my Marlin's except the 39A...... I wear glasses, and I have never had an issue getting the proper eye relief

I use the Weaver 63B with Weaver 1 inch low rings. On my 308MX I mounted a Redfield Revolution 2-7X33MM scope with AccuRange rectile. Love it. I use a limbsaver recoil pad to add 1 inch LOP which I need and this setup gives me plenty of + or - movement for eye relief. Plus this setup slams the scope to the barrel for better accuracy. Last outing I got 0.5625 group. Here is what it turned out like.

I have the Weaver 63B on my 308MX, 338XLR and my 1895 GG. I have never had any issues adjusting the eye relief for various scopes. The Weaver has held up to high velocity (1750fps) 45-70 loads with the 425 gr cast bullets without a hitch. I haven't tried the Leupold mount, but their stuff has always been high quality, so I wouldn't hesitate to buy either one.
