    Hello,

    I just purchased a Marlin 20. I havent received it yet. I was curious if any of you could educate me as to what options I have for optics? Thanks!

    Welcome to the Marlin Firearms Forum Bluebaron !!

    The Marlin Model 20, also known as the Marlin Glenfield Model 20, is a bolt action rifle chambered in .22 long rifle.

    It was in production from 1960 to 1966.

    A nice variable 3x9 power scope will enable you to plink and hunt small game...all the major manufacturers make specific optics for 22's...

    Here's a few choices from Optics Planet...good people to deal with !

    Thank you very much for the info sir! So do these weapons already have drill/mount points for the optics, or are those something I need to drill and tap/install myself?

    Thanks again.

    The Marlin 20 has adjustable open rear, ramp front sights with a receiver that is grooved for a scope mount.

    Ive never mounted a scope on any rifle before. I have only mounted optics onto rail systems already installed. The opticsworld page that you guys showed me has a lot of options. Do I need to buy anything besides the scope in order to install it onto the rifle?

    Also, does anyone have a link to a good guide to magnification optics. How to choose?

    Thanks again!
