    I put a Tasco red dot sight on one of my 10/22 rifles, and it was the fastest sight arrangement I could ask for, absolutely hazardous to squirrels, though I don't know how much punishment that sight would absorb. I put a Tru-Glo dot on a .38 Special revolver, and it's performing well; I wouldn't doubt a dot would serve well on the Marlin Model 336!

        The 336 is very accurate. I think a red dot would complement the 336 quite nicely....but then so would any quality 4x scope.

          I'll be the dissenter here...I think it would throw the esthetic way off. I have a peep on mine , sight he aperture opened up to serve as a "ghost ring." Best front sight is a flat top post, or patridge. A red dot will be functional, but they tend to be clunky, and I'm not a fan of anything that uses batteries on my rifles.

          Took a big Texas boar-hog right between the eyes with that rifle. I still remember seeing that post right where the bullet hit as he busted through the brush.

                I would keep it simple and use a receiver peep sight. I have them on both my lever actions. They have removable inserts and I use them both without the insert. Fast, accurate, simple.

                  I have an EOTech on my Henry 45/70 and the both eyes open shooting is pretty neat when you get used to it. Mine is only intended for very close ranges so if you are taking longer shots a scope might be a better choice. But for brush and close encounters the red dot is very effective.
                  I happen to agree with AMFlyer about the aesthetics. Mine looks heck but I did not buy this rifle to win any beauty contests. Might be ugly but it puts the bullets where they are supposed to go and keeping both eyes open is a real advantage.
