Mar 10, 2015· 30 Posts. Discussion Starter · #1 · Mar 3, 2015. Hello, I'm considering putting a scope on my Marlin 1895 chambered in 45-70. I am considering either a 1-4x20mm Leupold, or a 2-7x33mm Leupold. Both are similarly priced. It will be used primarily for hog hunting, but I would like flexibility--deer, bear, etc. I already have a 3-9x40 and a 4-12x40.
Aug 24, 2009· Post by Markbo onAug 24, 2009 at 1:48pm. I too use an XS scout mount on my 1895 in .45-70 with a 2X Leupold EER scope. Works like a charm and makes me keep my distance at a reasonable level. My gun likes heavy bullets and it kicks pretty good, so it's never a problem. I also have a near matching .444 Marlin that loaded hot kicks too, but I just ...
Nov 29, 2007· The Leupold 2x I put on my gun is a handgun scope but if I hadn't already had this scope I would have bought the Leupold 2.5x Scout scope. E-bay is a good place to buy a 2x Leupold handgun scope, they sell new for about $300 you can usually get them on e-bay for half that or less.
Dec 10, 2012· Why scout scopes? I chose a scout for my 45-70 due to the long eye relief and the fact that I'm not lookin for long range. 150 and under is my field of choice. Fixed power, no bells and whistles. Took a dandy black bear this fall while rounding a deep oxbow. I guesstimated around 130yard.

Nov 05, 2010· I have a Marlin 1895G in 45/70 and been thinking of putting on a scout scope like so many other people have done with this gun. I've never used a scout scope before, and after shopping them for quite some time, I find it surprising the lack of many to pick from and the relative high price in the $300 range for a fixed power, low magnification ...
With a zoom scope of 2 to 7x and a target focal point of 32mm, the Burris is perfect for short to medium range shooting. It is an extraordinary decision for a M1A scout rifle. Brisk, exact snaps let you make 1/4 MOA changes in accordance with make up for wind and rise.

It can take a beating, too. The 2.5x28mm is tested to the same harsh standards as all other Leupold® scopes.
Sep 22, 2017· To scope a 45-70 is just a crime, the bullet drop at 150 yards is a ton, open sights is the only way to go for a great 45-70. Henry is a fine rifle, you will have fun with that smoke poll. Go with factory irons, or at most a new rear peep sight. It is a sacrilege to scope a .45-70 lever gun.
Jan 05, 2011· Picked up a Marlin 45-70 and am pushing 405 grainers as a dark timber elk rifle. It does well off the bench with nice bright targets, but given old eyes, I'm toying with rigging it up with a Leupold FX-II 2.5x28. Supposed to have plenty of eye relief, like 9 or 10 inches. I don't want a scope interfering at all with hammer manipulations.
Perfect for a Marlin 1895SBL 45-70. As always, Leupold scopes are top notch. I put this one on a Marlin 1895 SBL Lever Action. Don;t need too long range for 45-70. It works perfectly, with good eye relief. I got it for that reason and also because of its low profile. I can manipulate the hammer as it clears the scope …
Jan 18, 2005· Leupold is revamping their fixed power scope line to contain the same MC4 lens coating that the VX II and VXIII have. They should be out withing a month. I would look at the 2.5x20mm or the 4x33mm in that line of scopes. If you want a variable I'd look at the VXII 1x4x20mm scope. All of those scopes will be at or under $300.

Apr 06, 2021· Leupold also has a 1-4 freedom series scout scope but I want a lil more magnification than 4x. Gonna need a a good quality scope to hold up to the 45-70. I like to shoot the +p grizzly ammo. Apr 3, 2021 #2 rkflorey Expert. Joined Nov 12, 2019 Messages 302 Reaction score 241 Points 43
May 04, 2010· Scope for Marlin 1895SBL in .45-70. I'm headed up to Alaska for some hunting with my brother this year, Moose and possibly Bear. I've got a Marlin 1895SBL which holds 6+1 rounds of .45-70 that I think will do the job in the densely wooded, rainy, cold areas where we'll be hunting. I am going around and around on scope choice and I'm hoping to ...

We jump straight back to Leupold, but this scout rifle scope is a fixed magnification version. Built for its scout performance… The Leupold FX-II model is a top quality fixed power scout scope.
Leupold VX Freedom 1.5-4x Scout Scope. The Leupold 1.5-4x is my favorite scout scope out of the three. It’s about the same price as the Burris but has a smaller range of magnification. Since it’s a scout scope I think 4x is perfectly serviceable for the range and speed a scout rifle brings.
Apr 03, 2005· I'd go Scout. I don't have a Marlin, but a Ruger #1 in 45/70. I have a 3X9 on my rifle, but had ordered the a Leupold Scout scope. Very nice and compact. Perfect for short guns and the 45/70. However the rings I had wouldn't work and I didn't want to order new ones. I like having a little bit of magnification and leave my scope on 3.

Feb 19, 2011· I had a Leupold 1 x 4 shotgun scope that I wanted to mount to a Ruger #3 chambered in 45-70, but was concerned that I needed the rifle version of that scope. I wrote to Leupold to ask their opinion. Customer service staff at Leupold told me the shotgun scope would be just fine in that application. They were correct.

Apr 06, 2002· It will do anything the 45-70 is capable of, and the scope will handle far more recoil than a 45-70 can generate. Anything, from Leupold, you put on the rifle will give you good service, as far as recoil goes, but the short, 20mm tubes and low of 1.5 power, on the bottom, and a 4 power on top is all that is needed on a 45-70!

After many OOS replies, I found a shop in San Antonio that had 6 of these on the shelf. 4 hours later only one remained. I tried a few different optics on it but liked the fit/function of the Leupold the most. Lastly topped it off with a DIY paracord sling that took much longer to weave than I anticipated. level 2.
Apr 10, 2018· SINCE A 45-70 usually isn't hunted on plains game at hundreds of yards, gotta figure closer engagements. AND IF you engaging moving targets I put a forward scout mount on mine with an EER thick hair Leupold scope. Can shoot both eyes open and you will acquire targets faster. BUT
Nov 24, 2010· I have a Marlin 1894 in 44 mag with a XS Scout Rail set up with a 2.5 fixed LER scope. My plan was to go with the Leupold 2.5 LER Scout scope but kind of ran out of money (well, got a killer deal on a S&W 696 44 spl and spent my scope money, but thats another story) and bought a Barkil (sic) 2x0 LER scope.

Jul 31, 2017· I installed the Leupold VX-2 1.5X4 X 28mm Scout Scope on a Marlin 1895SBL 45-70 Government. I used Leupold Stainless Quick Release Rings and installed so the scope does not hit the stock ghost ring sight that came with the gun. I sighted in at 25 yards within 2 shots on the target. Moved to 100 yards and was hitting high.
Aug 02, 2008· What scope are you using and recommend on your 45-70 1895? I've been thinking about getting a long eye-relief scout rifle scope. Magnification is fixed at a low power (typicaly 1.5x). The lack of eye relief on my Weaver 3x9 mounted on an 1895 LTDIII at 9x was verified by the crescent scar I now carry over my right eye.
