Just purchased a marlin guidegun in .450 marlin and plan on installing an AO mount for a scout scope.

Reccomendations?

I'm considerning a Leupold 2.5 fixed as most shots will be from 25-75 yards.

Any other options

Thanks,

AJ

I can think of two dedicated scout scopes: Leupold 2.5x28 and Burrsi 2.75x20.  Burris has slightly better glass, but with this low magnification it really does not make much difference.  Burris is a bit cheaper so I'd go with that, but either one would work just fine.

I have the Leupold and it works very well.  I've got another scout setup that I am tinkering with, and I'll go with Burris on that one.

Field of view is important with a scout application, so I would get the Leupold.

 

The Leupold will give you 7 more feet at 100 yards than the Burris.

That's a good point.
