local dirt, Any of the mounts and rings mentioned in this thread will do for that scope. If yer heart is set on that 3-9X33, then you should probably go with whichever one is the lowest, since you can mount it lower than a 40 mm objective.

The Warne rings Paul5454 posted look good for this scope, unless you can find something even lower than that.

We have some members here on RFC who are convinced (probably justifiably so) that the Weaver base provides a less than stable 'platform' for their scopes with its 'cantilever' front portion. Most of 'em probably have a large, bulky scope on their rifle. I've had mine mounted for 15-20yrs & it has yet to fail me on a shot in the squirrel woods. My scope is a relatively heavy yet compact, older Bausch & Lomb Balvar (I think) 1.5-6X with no objective bell. IMO it looks completely 'at home' on my 1978 39A, & with my aging eyesight I need all the help I can get vision-wise... I think there are pickatinny(sp?) type rails now available for the 39a but I'll keep what I have since it works for me




This pic is the only time I ever 'benched' the rifle. I usually use Win Powerpoints (when I can find 'em) with this gun but I used the S-K Standard Plus for this target. The Powerpoints shoot nearly as well...
Nobody, are those Talley rings you're using on your rifle?

Nope, just plain old Weaver 1" rings. The rear one is an extension ring. I used it because I had it on hand & like the additional support it gives the rather heavy scope...

Do you have a picture of the Gru-bee on your Marlin?

Thanks

For anyone interested, here's how it came out.

Ended up going with the Leupold VX-2 3-9x33 EFR CDS, Weaver #90 Marlin mount, and Leupold QR rings.

She's definitely a keeper, but that stock trigger is gonna need some work.

Wow, very nice setup.

I like the quick release rings.

Weaver base and a Sightron 3-9 scope. Ran some tests to show that virtually any rifle with preferred ammo could be used in 100 yard sporter class. CCI Select produced 1.5" groups.

I've got one of those weaver mounts under a Weaver R4 on my '77 39a. Before I got the R4 had a K4 on it.

horseman2, can't totally disagree with you. Maybe not any rifle, but at least these 3 for me.

- '77 Marlin 39A (pictured above)
- Tony Kidd 10/22 (viewable in some of my other posts)
- CZ 452 American (" ")

I would take any of these 3 to a comp shoot and not be ashamed, or seriously outgunned.

Could you give us a number as the link doesn't seem to work and it's not a #90. I have one right here and the holes are wrong and base not flat.

The link leads to one of 2 pieces required. Is the front base the same number maybe?

The weaver works, the DNZ is IMO, overkill. But really nice, I have one on a 1894
