Don't know much about a Marlin .17 but have more knowledge of the Trijicon ACOG Scope. Got one on my AR -15. Scope cost more than my AR which is by Bushmaster, not inexpensive. Is it worth the price of admission? If the answer is yes, by all means go for it. I am extremely curious, although it is none of my business, what you would do with that combination?
May the Schwartz Be With You.
