Has anyone scoped the 336 30/30 with a conquest 3x9x40? I recently took a 3x9x40 off the 336 due to poor optics and would like to put on the conquest. I had no problems with old scope interfering with cocking the hammer. I have a spur mounted on the hammer and I am concerned the ocular housing on the conquest would be to close to the spur to cock easily. I can pick up the conquest at a good price, otherwise I would wait for the lower power conquests to hit the market. Any suggestions?

 

Thanks, Gingus

AO Lever Scout Mount,  is the way to go on a 336. It is a 8" long Weaver-style rail.

Using only the front two screws and the dovetail slot  it allows for  pistol or long eye relief scopes like a  guide gun.  Have you seen the Ruger Frontier?

I already have single piece leupold mounts on the 336 and prefer not to change them. I should have gone with the Ao scout in the first place!! Thanks for thr reply. Anyone else have any info??

 

Thanks, Gingus

Only to say that the Conquest is a great scope...

The 3-9 should serve you well.

 

The Conquests are coming out this summer with some lower powered options you may want to consider.
