Here's a good write up from marlinforum: The Appleseed Marlin 795 Liberty Training Rifle
Designed hand in hand with input from the RWVA, this special edition rifle comes with two magazines, a canvas sling with swivels (every marksmanship advocate will explain the importance of a sling), and adjustable TSM200 Tech Sights.
Another write up from Bob Owens: Marlin/Appleseed LTR announced
We’re fortunate that Marlin really “gets” Appleseed as a mission and grasps the reasoning behind the rifle, and it didn’t hurt that one of the Marlin employees working on the Marlin 795-based rifle through the conceptual stages is himself an Appleseeder.
There's probably lots more on the appleseed forum that I couldn't possibly link to: http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php
