    Consider the line of optics from Hawke Optics. They have a wide number of scopes in several price points and offer optic lenses that are comparable with Luepold. Water fog and shock proof with a lifetime warranty. I have 2 and they are excellent.

    In my personal opinion, a 2 to 7 X 32 is a quick shooting scope. For a 30 30 you don't need anything else. See though mounts bring the center point of the scope way to high, Marlin says it them selves. Mount the scope as close to the barrel as possible, with a 2 to 7 you don't need see through sights. You would be amazed at how fast you can zero in on a running target with the scope on # 2 power. If you haven't tried it don't knock it, with see through mounts. In a fast situation, there's that 2 second delay. And that's all you need to loose a nice rack Buck on the run! I shot many Deer on the run with my 2 to 7, hit my mark!

    I would recommend a BSA catseye 50mm.You can see about 10 min. before and after light and dark.It is not expensive and will stay sighted in very well.

    I'd vote none on a 30-30. But if you must, I'd recommend a fixed 4 power, and money is the limit as far as brand.

    About any 3-9 by 40 will do great.

    I like a Weaver 1x by 3 on a 30-30. Have a Weaver 2.5 on my 336C, but they don't make them anymore. With the 1x by 3 on 1x you can keep both eyes open.

    buddyboy564, Marlin rifles eject out the side. Winchester ejects out the top.

    leopold and cabelas both have pretty good scopes but if your gun ejects from the top you might want to reconsider mounting a scope onto it

    With a quality 3 or 4X scope and quality rings (just as important as the scope) you won't need iron sights. Nix the Bushnell had bad luck with them. Leupold or Sightron is the way to go. They back their scopes with an outstanding warranty. You can get the best deal on Ebay.

    i own and shoot a 30-30. if it was my choice and i was making the decision for you, i would say DO NOT waste your money and buy a $2000 super-zoom leupold and put it on your 30-30. it's not worth it. with your 30-30 you won't be able to take such a long shot, you don't need so much power. a Leupold would be a very nice scope to go with though. i use a simmons 3-9 X 40. I would go with a Nikon, Simmons, or a Bushnell.

    Go with Nikon or Bushnell. Try any power you would like. I have a 3x9 power. It is a Sightron.

    I would agree on the 4x32, any thing bigger is, pardon the word, overkill.

    A good 4 X 32 will do the job quite well. Nikon is a good place to look.
