    First of all, .22s are not long range firearms.
    My understanding is, if you sight them in at 35ish yards, the trajectory will be that same at 100 yds.

    If you want to scope it, look for one made for a pellet rifle.
    I know it sounds wierd, but the kick from a pellet rifle is hell on scopes.
    And .22s are hell on scopes for some reason. It's a perfect match.

    And since you're only shooting short distances (for the most part), you don't need/want some over powered 10-12x 40mm scope. 4x is just about right.

    Shoot subsonic ammo only, but that's an entirely different thread.:)

    If you thought you had questions before, you're just getting started.

    Don't know it your Marlin is a bolt action or auto; to me that would make a difference (quick follow up shot or racking another round.)

    I have a Marlin #60 auto and it is equiped with a Weaver R-22 Aim Point that they made to clamp unto the grove.
    No magnification or batteries; just a red dot on the target. For an auto; that's all you need.
    Not familiar what is similar and availible today Check Ebay?

    If it's a bolt action; I'd go for a scope; more precise aim; and if you need a second shot; well, you need to practice.

    Whatever you settle on; stay away from those 7/8" dia. scopes!

    Beth, your Marlin Model 60 is a semi-auto and is tube fed. It holds I believe 14-15 rounds of 22lr's. The Simmons 22 MAG 3-9x32 is a decent scope for the price. Right now is a good time to be buying/looking for a scope as ive seen different places have them on sale. You might log onto Midwayusa.com and see what they might have on sale. Natchezess is another place you might look for scopes on sale. All said though, one can get a pretty good scope for far under $100 for a .22 Rifle.
