I bought my 70 years ago from B5 and payed about $120 for it. It's been a great shooter, and still is. Back then, there were hi-cap 25rnd mags available for it. I bought all that I could and am glad I did. I've added a scope and a bipod lug. I've noticed that over the years, my trigger has almost become a 2 stage. I've figured out where the slack is, then after that is where the hammer drops. The distance isn't much and takes a little bit to find it. This is the best varmit gun I have.
It seems that some are having difficulty finding mags for their 795s. I've got about a half dozen each of the 7rnd and 10rnd mags I could part with.
Yea thats what I have. A Model 70 HC.
The stock 25 rd magazine has long since broke.
When I mount a Bushnell scope on it i can shoot pennies at 50 yards all day long.
My some shoot the little plastic soldiers.
I'm lookin for another wooden stock that I can chop a few inches off it so my 10 year old daughter can shoulder it. She loves shooting the Marlin.
