HAve used a fixed 4 power scope on this style rifle for years, works for me for the type of game you're after

Make sure you tap the scope mounts correctly and have at least a 1" rise....ur hammer will get in the way of the scope and it will be a pain in the neck to decock the hammer.

336 have been factory tapped for scopes for 50+ years. A Weaver scope base from wherever, and Weaver Quadloc rings and a Nikon 2x7 from Walmart are hard to beat for well under $200. A slightly cheaper (and vastly inferior, yet quite popular) option is the Bushnell Banner 1.4-4.5 or Simmons Pro Diamond 4x. Adding a hammer extension is a bit safer for decocking, I don't like high rings. Sky is the limit on $ though, and more $ creates a lot of options.

I've used a Redfield Tracker with see through mounts and a Hammer extension. As per wreckhog, these rifles have been factory drilled and tapped for a long time, some of my earlier examples are not

There are a lot of quality scopes out there in your price range. I hear good things about Red Field, Nikon and Burris.

When I was looking to upgrade my scope, I found a member here selling one.

Like other have said, you'll need a mount, scope rings, a scope and a hammer spur. I do not use a hammer spur on my scoped 336....but that's just my personal preference.

When you are looking for mounts.....if you get tall ones, you'll still be able to look under the scope and use your iron sights for closer ranges. Also, the hammer spur is year specific. If you use the wrong one, it will fit and tighten up but it will mar up the hammer and eventually loosen up.

I took a quick pic of all of the components you'll need to put one on your rifle.(the pic kinda stinks cause I had to use my cell phone...my kid is busy doing home work on the PC so I am on the lap top and I can only transfer pics via wireless) You can get quick release mounts if you wanna pop the scope on and off. I cant understand how a scope stays zero-ed that way, but whatever floats your boat.

You can get the mount and rings at Walmart or Sports Authority....not sure about the hammer spur.

Good luck with your search.

LOL..I guess your right. I have a 57' Marlin and had to tap the receiver myself. But as far as hammer extension...I had at least 3 different ones over the years...nothin but problems. HiRise mounts worked out much better for me...and with the see thru feature I could still use the irons for close range shots.
