.44 lever action + scope?

My friend just bought a Winchester .44 mag lever action, its pretty damn accurate...but the iron sights are crap. He's thinking about putting a scope on it.

Would this be a good idea? Whats a good scope for something like this?

Its hard to scope those as they eject out the top, your gonna need a scout scope setup, with a long eye relief scope.

44 magnum? the revolver round?

I dunno, I think even with a long rifle barrel the cartridge is only really effective to 150 - 200 yards so a scope isn't too necessary, depends on what you're shooting I guess.

Maybe get a good ghost ring/peep sight?

I know nothing about guns, except I just learned that not all magnums are revolvers, it just means extra powder in the casing. The army snipers had some sweet custom rifle they make to fit each soldier when they join the certain team.

And 00-Buck yes, tis the handgun cartrage. But we were shooting at soup cans at about 100 yards and it was pretty dead on.Just the iron sights suck

.44 rifles used to be popular, Marlins especially. Load 1 cartridge for your gun and your rifle. Nice brush gun for short stuff. Marlin also had a .444 Marlin which was a stretched 44 Mag.
