I lust picked up a beautiful tiger maple stocked marlin in 35 remington and was wanting to swap out the scope.It came with a japanese tasco 3x9x32,which the glass is ok,but even comparing it next to a muller apv it is lacking.
 
Any recommendations?Thanks

I suggest you just sell me that gun then you wont have to worry? really though I would go for a 2.5x8x36 Leupold VXIII or a Leupold compact.  your budget will be a real determining factor?

Dump the Tasco for sure!........For a 35 Rem, I wouldn`t go over 6x tops (preferably 5x or less) for magnification and do like the Leupys for their selections, size, weight and customer service.
 
Good choices are;
 
1.5-5x20 VX3...............1st choice
1-4x20 VX2..................2nd choice
1.75-6x32 VX3.............3rd choice
4x FX2.........................4th choice
 
Or you can use a scout mount.
 
2.75x Leupy or Burris scout scopes.

What base & rings you have on.I've seen many lever guns with that type scope mounted with a quick site set-up.My Marlin has a fixed Redfield 2 3/4 that has been on for over 20 years and my shots are under 100 yards.I just bought a Weaver Classic Extreme on closeout and for the money is a real nice scope,as bright as my Bushnell Elite 4200.Depending on what your budget is for a new scope.The Bushnell Elite line is worth looking at.The Weaver I'm using is a 1-5 power with iluminated dot

Budget would be a big factor.
 
I am a fan of the Model 336 .35 Remington myself, though have only hunted with one with open sights. But it is fun to imagine which scope would be perfect!

I paid 350 for the gun so I'd like to keep it somewhere in that range.I'd never seen one with tiger maple.It came with a weaver rail,weaver rings and the tasco.

 This fast-handling, modest-range rig needs a fairly compact, low-power scope.

 Since it is very attractive, I assume by your description, it needs a Leupold.

 I can't argue with Big Squeeze on this one, (as much as I would like to  Smoking Bandit)...

Hard to beat a straight-tubed  Leupold 1-4x or Nikon 1.5-4.5x in detachable mounts, partly because the straight front end doesn't interfere with the rear sight. But if it will fit around the rear sight the Trijicon 1.25-4x is great.

If you want to preserve the "look" get an El Paso Weaver K2.5. The old blued steel tube scopes look great and perform well. My personal choice is a Burris FastFire II with the 336 mount. Fast and won't change the look or handling of the rifle.

( Ahem )............My first scope in my life was a 1964-era 3X9X32 Tasco....that I put on a 336 Marlin 30-30.  It worked fine.  You can't see in the dark with it.  You couldn't see in the dark with a 1964 Redfield or Leupold, either.  [ As a matter of fact, you couldn't see At Dusk with a 2001 Leupold--unless you had a Vari-X III ]...Bucky       Shocked
 
If I was gonna put a scope on a Marlin today, I think any of the decent 2X7 or 1.5X6 would be great.  The 35 Remington is not a long range cartridge.
 
Keep the Tasco ( unless it is a " new " one from China or somewhere)....and put it on a 22

im going to go against the grain here either upgrade the open sights or use a red dot 1x type, its a lever gun im from the old school lever guns are meant for open sights.

Yep.....iron sights are Ok for short ranges for hunting accuracy.  But a scope, even on a Marlin 336, will certainly improve one's shooting!!  Bucky

The K2.5 Micro Track El Paso Weaver I have is very good in low light. Much much better than I expected. I believe it's one of the newer ones though. Late 70s? Do check out the Burris FastFire II though. I'm putting one on my pre-safety 35 Rem. 336. Nice that they make a 336 specific mount to.

pyro,

A red dot on a 336? My wife put an Aimpoint on her .38-55 Model 94 Winchester, mostly to creep out the super-traditional lever-action guy she bought it from. If a scope isn't OK, then a red dot ain't either. Maybe a fiber-optic front sight, though....

 That's pretty funny!
 I bet it worked pretty well both for shooting, and for creeping- out purposes...

Yeah, it did. In fact he kept asking if she still had it on the rifle, and when he finally quit asking she took it off....

I had an Aimpoint on a 336 30-30. That was a hog killin' machine in the thick stuff. The 336 is a lever action but to my knowledge was never an "old west" gun. Put whatever you need on it to make quick and humane kill shots. Function over form. I doubt there's a critter in the woods that would prefer to be blown away by a "more natural" looking rifle. For anyone who's seen My Cousin Vinni: "do you really think the deer cares what pants you was wearin'?" Marisa Tomei Love

Edited because that dang dancing bananna was gittin' annoying.

RONK,

Now, that's an idea! I wonder if Crimson Trace makes a unit for 94's....

 I bet the Laser units that replace the guide rod in certain hanguns copuld be made to fit the magazine tube of a '94 pretty easily.
Actually that might be kind of cool.
It would be hidden and wouldn't spoil the guns looks either...

Well, the 336 is a "new" model...I believe it came out with that designation in 1948.  Before that it was the Model 36....before that it was the Model 1893.  Marlin goes all the way back to 1870.  Only four years behind Winchester.
