I have A few Marlins and a couple win's and with my tired old eyes I tried the Skinner peep and it helped a great deal, I then switched a 2--7 X32 compact Cabelas and it is fantastic. I put the Skinner peep on a Mdl 94 Marlin limited 16 in barrel and it is also great. So It is what works best for you. I will probably have to get another scope for the extra NIB 336 I picked up at an Estate Auction a while back. I have a few shooters for my hunts here in NM and seems like I usually pick out one of the Levers for the deer and elk and just about anything else. Last week I was deep in remote canyons near the Mex /AZ and NM border and carried a 45 ACP and partner carried one of my short little levers. Lots of 2 leg coyotes down there.
