Lever Action Scope

I've got a Marlin 1894c I'd like to scope. I am thinking this mount: Warne Maxima 1-Piece Aluminum Weaver-Style Scope Base Marlin 36 336

Looking for suggestions on the scope. For .357, I don't see shooting more than 100 yards, so 4x is probably about all I'd use. I am split between getting a 3-9x or just a fixed power 4x. In general I prefer fixed power scopes. The purpose of the rifle would be a plinker and a brush gun, maybe some groundhog work here and there.

Budget is $200 for scope and rings. I'd also like to keep the scope as light as possible, I don't want to add a lot of weight to a very handy rifle. I'm thinking Redfield Revenge 2-7x34mm is the top of the list, Vortex Crossfire II has my attention too.

Any suggestions are welcome.

At the range you are shooting, open sights would suffice. A small 4x would also work. Optcs Planet always has great deals .
