Additional Marlin 795SS(or NOW 60SS) question... SCOPE!

OK, I'm pretty much decided on a Marlin 795SS, and I see that the "receiver is grooved for scope mount". I've never scoped a rifle before, so does this mean all I need are rings and a scope? Even if this is true, is it a good way to go, or is some other mounting method preferred? I'm not using the rifle for competition or anything serious, but I would like accuracy for plinking and maybe hunting. What are some of your ideas about what can be done in the $100 range to put a decent scope on this rifle?

Thanks again for all your replies!

yes, I think so and I just bought one like it...

I never bought a Scope for more than 100 bucks, I guess I maybe never will
the $30-$80 one's get it done for me ...
that being said, it all depends on your taste and your needs

my suggestion would be since you said this is your first, to get an el-cheep-o

these are hanging on a rack at wallyworld for $16 (includes mounting rings)

for a small investment, you can learn the ins and outs of scoping...

if you decide you want to go the more expensive route, then you probably will

need to buy mounting rings and scope separate

these are the most common, and seems about every outlet carries them:

(but I prefer these http://www.millettsights.com/pages/wvrspecs.html )

then its wide open as to which scope,money wise, you choose:

good luck

I went down to my gunshop, money in hand, ready to get the 795SS. Then I saw the Model 60SS with the grey laminated stock. It felt like it had better balance, and I liked the additional weight. It just felt more solid. Why can't Marlin make the 795 with the same stock?!? I think I've been seduced by the 60SS!

SLCDave:

I bought a M60SS and found it to be an excellent shooter and a good handling and functioning rifle. It shoots very well and gets better with use;I bought it brand new and glad that I did. You won't be sorry. :t :)

GOOD SHOOTING!

P.S. I've got a Weaver 4x with Weaver rings and it's a nice scope. I've also got several Simmons scopes to include 22 Mag 3x9x32 and a staight 4x. They too have been very good for me, shoot well, hold their zero, and are reasonably bright. RF
