    Not true I have a scope on my pre 64. It is mounted in front of the teceiver. It's a,2 power Redfield was on it when my dad bought for my first deer rifle in 71. I have 2 extra scopes for it now.

    And then get another one rebored and keep the barrel long since you will then know the longer barrel is more fun to shoot.

    If you are not hunting moose, elk, or the larger bears, what is the driving reason to get it in a bigger caliber. 30-30 ammo is everywhere and it is a proven deer killer.

    I personally do not like the recoil of cartridges with more power than the 30-30, 7.62x39 and .35 Rem. Yes I do own heavier recoiling rifles, but they do kick.

    Don't forget that your gun will lose un-needed weight from the rebore. My Win 94 got even handier as a 38-55. Last Sunday everyone wanted to shoot it and my 44-40 and the ARs remained cased much to my suprise!
