I have three lever guns that wear scopes (two Marlins and a Winchester). Make sure the scope you use has enough eye relief for the gun. That is the measured distance from the eye to the lens on the scope. A scope with decent eye relief will allow the scope to be mounted far enough forward to make for a comfortable shooting position. It will also prevent the eye piece on the scope from hitting your head when you shoot. I ran into this problem with the first scope I mounted on my Winchester M94. I finally purchased a shotgun scope to get the eye relief I wanted.
