This thread is Part 2 of the orignal epic Marlin 795 thread
by Capt Jack
Marlin was founded at North Haven, Connecticut in 1870 by John Mahlon Marlin.
Marlin has a long and illustrious history
, a few notable points: The Marlin 39A was the rifle of choice of Annie Oakley. Marlin supplied arms in WWI.
Marlin is now located in Mayfield, Kentucky and owned by Remington Arm as part of the Freedom Group
which in turn is owned by Cerberus Capital Management
About the 795:
The Marlin 795 is the current magazine fed version of the Famous Marlin 60 tube fed rifle.
The Marlin 60 was invented in 1960 and alone has sold over 11 millions copies.
It should be noted that this is 4 years before the Ruger 10/22 and millions more rifles produced.

Disassembly by ArrowDodger (pdf):
Note: Take special care when removing and reinstalling the bolt to not bend the recoil spring!
Marlin has a list of recomened ammo on page 2 in the manual.
It is common advice from 22LR shooters to find what ammo your rifle
This means getting a bunch of small boxes of ammo and testing them out for function and grouping.
Then finding which one has the best mix of function and accuracy at a price your wallet can live with.
Commonly Advocated Ammo:
CCI Mini Mags
CCI Blazer Bulk
Hyper Velocity Ammo:
Marlin advises against the use of it in the manual.
I am not advocating the use of it but if you do check the condition of your buffer after you shoot it.
Note: I have never used HV ammo in my 795 but others report that it does work
Clean your rifle before shooting it:
When you receive your rifle it will be oiled with heavy packing oil. While this oil is great for preserving your rifle it is very "gummy". It is best to strip down your rifle and clean out all of this oil. Also some owners report when taking down their rifle for the first time they find a loose metal shaving or two inside their action, which is another reason to clean your rifle before you shoot it.
Note: From my experience the 795 likes to be run almost "dry".
I clean mine with CLP with a toothbrush and then wipe it down till it looks shiny but dry. If I feel crazy I spread one drop over the rails and one on the sides of the bolt.
If there is excess oil you are giving unburnt powder a place to stick
