I have a Marlin .357 mag. lever action carbine and finally got the scope and mounts ordered.  I was originally going to go with the Warne 2 piece scope base, and Warne permanent rings with a Weaver V1-3x20.  I placed an order through SWFA, and got a prompt reply that the base and rings were out of stock.  I went ahead and switched to the Weaver Grand Slam medium rings, and the Weaver 2 piece Grand Slam bases.  I had to order the bases through Brownells because SWFA only had one in stock, and I needed a set.  I got everything else plus a Leupold lens pen through SWFA for $190 and think I got a pretty good deal.Big%20Smile  Anyway, once everything comes in, I'll post a pic, and do a review of the rifle, and scope set up.  It may be awhile, but I'll eventually get r done.Smile

Should make a real nice setup, I'm glad you went with a low power variable, I think you'll be happy.

Yep, no need for lots of power on a carbine like this.  Plus the fact that a larger scope would look very out of plice on a rifle this small.Smile

Excellent!! Thanks for sharing with The Hive.
 
At SWFA you buy once, but become a friend for life.
 
And that's a good thing to know in todays fast paced, "gimme mine NOW" world where most places you buy from, your treated as just another account number....or less.
