Default Marlin 795 field report

Today I took the 795 out for the first time. Set up at 50 yards and was shooting 36 Grain HP Federal ammo. The rifle was a joy to shoot. Ran a total of 230 rounds through it with 5 FTEs. Due to the construction of the rifle, I consider these to be break-in FTEs. Most occurred initially and the frequency went down as more rounds were fired. The action and receiver seem to be cast, so this little gem definitely needs a break-in period. I recommend lubrication for all new users.

I also had Tech-Sights installed and it took about 30 rounds to zero it in. I highly recommend these sights.

Here are my targets. As you can see, this rifle groups very nicely, and most rounds were 9 ring or better.

Definitely a great value for a $150 rifle!
