I my self has to have a scope for anything past 50 yards now because of my eyesight. Anything below 50 yards I have no problems with my stock sights on my marlin hence the quick connect scope rings. Also I got a wildlife tech 250 yrd greenlight with a quick disconnect to mout on my scope ring that has a picannily mount on top of one of them. But on tactical levers well I might go the route of the mossberg lever that has been out for a few years Mossberg 464? SPX Lever Action Centerfire Rifles | O.F. Mossberg & Sons. I been kicking around the ideal of getting one all because it had a place to attach a light to them for them in the dark situations that might crop up for just in case.
