I picked up a Marlin 1895mr for $520.00

I don't regret the buy or anything but I was wondering if I got the rifle a good deal?

Thanks...

Also if I were to put a scope on it for hunting what would you guys recommend?

Welcome to the Forum. Any rifle purchased is a good buy if you ask me. The price you paid is a fair price for a Marlin 1895. The MR series was the 450 Marlin with the 22 inch barrel and pistol grip stock but I think it has been discontinued by Marlin which makes it a better buy if you ask me. You know this purchase could lead to a lifelong case of Marlinitis for which there is no cure. As far as a scope, all my big bore Marlins are equipped with low power variable, 1.5-4.5 or 2-7 powers. Low power for close in and moderate power for shooting a little further.
