    you just going to plink with it? A good fixed 3x scope would be a good choice but if you want zoom function you could get a 3-9X scope. Do you have a flat top or a rimfire rail? Either way you have good options for ring size and height.

    I'd be more interested in a 3-9X scope and I have a flat top.

    here's how I rigged my Model 60





    Marlin rings.... went with the shortest that would work, and it's a very close fit, and a very inexpensive NCStar ($38) 3-9x40 model #SFS 3940R.

    I actually feel almost dirty recommending a chinese made product, but it was all that was available at the shop the day I was rigging this gun out last fall. So far, it's worked perfectly, and the groups have tightened up considerably since the day those target were shot.

    Gotta love the Model 60

    I have a wally-world "Centerpoint" 3-9 IR w/ mil dot retical on my 597. It's been ok so far except the green illuminator has failed, but that wasn't really a selling point for me. It comes with 3/8 and weaver rings, and cheapo flip up caps for $54.

    NC Star might work ok for 22/s and BB guns,but when I tried one on an AR15 the zero moved everytime I shot
