So I hit the gun shop and managed to find the correct dovetail rings and got the Bushnell 5-10x mounted on the Marlin.... It looks absolutely rediculous.
Surprisingly on the lowest magnification it's pretty nice and it has a high eye relief so it's quite comfortable. Looks insane, but at 100 yards it's not bad.
I put the other scope off my creedmoor on the B mag .17wsm and that thing is absolutely perfect for that gun. I thought it was small and under magnified for the creedmoor but it's dead on for the .17. size, magnification etc all work well.
Now I'm waiting for my monster Leupold 24x by 52mm to put on the creedmoor....
I'm contemplating getting a scope for the .410 and the .357 mag I inherited now... I have no idea why, I just like scopes. I think a reflex site for the .357 and a cheap 2-4x for the shotgun.
