Both are good for squirrels.....for my location the Marlin 60 would be my choice due to dence woods and short distance with quick follow up shots in the tree tops. In which case a wide angle 3x9 is good.Ok folks I have an opinion question for you all:
-I have a sweet shooting CZ 455 lux and a very nice shooting Marlin 60. I want to place a scope on one (squirrels and targets). Which would you scope and why?
I have the same problem with open sights that you do. It is very hard to focus the rear and the front sights at the same time. This did not become a problem with me until I turned 50. I had my eyes checked and have a current prescription for my glasses but I still can not focus on both!I have a lot of trouble seeing the sights on my Marlin for some reason (front post just disappears for me). The CZ sights allow me to shoot well already, but I'm thinking it would be killer with a scope. Any of you ever put something like a simple open red dot on a 60?
(Thanks for all the 'welcomes')
