As previously noted in Post #8:
- The stock iron sights weren't too bad, but I put a WilliamsFP peep on it to establish load preferences.
- (then my mid 60's eyes finally said "...put a lo-pwr Leupold on it, stupid...."
That turned it from a deer rifle to a woodchuck getter out to a considerable distance.
(Still, I also shoot the Rolling Block and the Highwall using an MVA Vernier tang/globe front. But rifles like that are "sporting." The Marlin is all business.)
