I am pretty new to shooting with a scope. Just getting out of basic training im mainly trained with iron sights on a M16. I recently bought a marlin 60 to go squirel hunting with and it seems like everytime i get the scope sighted in and think im done with it, the rifle will start shooting about 4 inches low and ill have to start all over again. Is this because i bought a cheap scope for $30 bucks at walmart? Should i just invest in a better scope?

The scope could be one reason. The mounts could be another.
Check to make sure the mounts are tightened properly. If you can elimiante the mounts as the cause, I would mount another scope and see if the situation improves.
If you get a chance, get back with us when you have checked the mounts and scope.
Welcome to OT.

Im fixing to buy myself a bolt action Savage Mark II. But before i do im going to do what you said and test out another scope on my wifes Marling 60. I was looking at the BSA 3-9X40 Sweet 22 Riflescope on the SWFA site. Does anyone have any experience with BSA scopes i dont want to get drawn into another bad scope just because i see a low price lol. I plan on buying this scope for the savage and just testing it out on the marlin to see if i need to buy another scope for my Wife.

I adjusted my Wife's scope about half an inch forward because i didn't notice it sitting on the rear sight somehow. I bought the scope on the way to the range and put it together at the range so maybe that's why lol.  It stays sited in pretty good now.

my son has a marlin 792 ? it has the little rail on top.  the cheap tasco mounts wont hold so it will never see a scope.  i had also tried the tasco mounts on mu ruger 10/22  and they kept moving around and that was on the weaver rail. now i have some warne mounts and  i dougbut i will ever have a probelm  you can spend 5 bucks more on a set a mounts and it can  make a world of a diffrence.
