This thread is Part 2 of the orignal epic Marlin 795 thread by Capt Jack

About Marlin:
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.

Past Models of Marlin Magazine Fed Semi Autos:
Marlin 70 - Predecessor to the 795
70HC - High Capacity Variation
700 - Big 5 Special Variation of the 70 - Blued with Gold Trigger featuring a Wood Stock
989 M2 - Blued with M1 Carbine style Wood Stock including a top hand guard and barrel band. It had a rear sight that was attached to the dovetail rail
995 - Blued featuring a Wood Stock
995SS - Stainless Steel Variation featuring a Black Synthetic Stock
795TB - Threaded Barrel Variation (Not available in the USA. Possibly only sold in the United Kingdom?)
7000 - Heavy Barrel Variation featuring a Black Synthetic Stock
7000T - Heavy Barrel Variation featuring a Red, White and Blue Laminate Adjustable Stock

Current Models:
795 - Blued featuring a Black Synthetic Stock
795SS - Stainless Steel Variation
70PPS (Papoose) - Take-down Variation
795 LTR - Liberty Training Rifle - Appleseed Edition (Comes with Tech-Sights, Sling, Extra Magazine and a Gift Certificate to attend Appleseed)

Specifications:
Caliber: 22 Long Rifle
Capacity: 10-shot nickel-plated clip magazine
Action: Autoloading; side ejection; automatic "last-shot" bolt hold-open; manual bolt hold-open; cross-bolt safety.
Stock: Monte Carlo black fiberglass-filled synthetic with swivel studs and molded-in checkering.
Barrel: 18" with Micro-Groove® rifling (16 Grooves).
Twist Rate: 1:16" R.H.
Sights: Adjustable open rear, ramp front sight. Receiver grooved for scope mount.

Note: The included lock is on the DOJ approved list

Features the 795 has that the 10/22 does not:

Note: Take special care when removing and reinstalling the bolt to not bend the recoil spring!

Manual (pdf):
http://www.marlinfirearms.com/pdfs/m..._22LRMACH2.pdf

Ammo:
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 likes.
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
Federal 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

Mods:

No mods need to be done to the 795. You will love your 795 right out of the box. (give it an initial cleaning as you would any new firearm)

Note: I am not responsible for any modifications / damage you do.
This information is for educational reasons only.
I do not advocate trigger work or defeating safeties if you are not confidant and proficient in doing such work.
A light trigger means nothing if the rifle is unsafe or unreliable.
Remember safety is always #1




Fog City Tactical Trigger Work:

DUDE’s Tuning:





Trigger Return Spring:

Many people advocate the replacement of the heavy trigger return spring with a lighter one from a floppy disk.
Another route is to completely remove the return spring.
It is redundant, the Transfer Bar will supply enough force to reset the trigger.
Removing it will take about a pound of felt trigger weight off.



Magazine Disconnect Removal:



Bend the Magazine Disconnect Bar's Tab up Red Circle which will remove the pressure on the Transfer Bar circled in Yellow.

This will allow the trigger to be pulled when there is no magazine inserted.



Paint Over-spray:

Many people will notice that the inside of the receiver of their new Marlin may have some paint over-spray inside it. Many people suggest taking a scrub pad to the inside of the receiver and cleaning out that paint. Personally I just let the parts polish together from shooting it. But if your action is really gritty it is worth trying this.

Parts

e-clip

The smaller e-clip size is 3/32 and can be found at Hardware stores for a few cents


Replacement OEM Buffers (Black or White)
http://www.gunpartscorp.com/catalog/...0B&catid=11759
Some people feel that the older more rubbery buffer is better than the newer clearish white ones



OEM Recoil Spring
http://www.midwayusa.com/product/212...5ss-7000-70pss


J&P Extra Power Recoil Spring
https://www.jnpgunsprings.com/produc...roducts_id=221


MCARBO Trigger Pull Weight Reducing Springs
http://www.mcarbo.com/products.htm



Marlin OEM Magazines
10 and 7 round magazines work as long as they have the cut on the side that corresponds to the nub in the magazine well.
New magazines are backwards compatible with rifles such as the M70.
But older magazines will not work in new rifles without modification.
You are looking for "POST-88" Bolt and Auto-Loader Magazines Mgf ID: 71902


25 Round Shooters Ridge / Champion magazines
Note: California Magazine Laws apply to rimfire!
Supposedly these magazines are very unreliable




ProMag magazines
Note: California Magazine Laws apply to rimfire!
These are very new so little is known about them.
So far the reports are that the 25 round stick magazines work very well!

MAR-1 25 round stick magazine

Apparently Drums have become Vaporware
MAR-2 30 round drum magazine
MAR-3 55 round drum magazine
MAR-4 70 round drum magazine

Accessories

Scope Rings:

UTG "Airgun" .22 Integral Ring Mount
http://www.amazon.com/UTG-Airgun-Pro.../dp/B002TUSJV6
http://www.amazon.com/UTG-Medium-Pro.../dp/B002TUSJVQ

The dovetail rail is notorious for normal ring's "walking" off the back of the rail from recoil.
This "one piece" integral ring mount will keep your scope solid.

Yes it says "Airgun", no this does not mean airsoft.
High End Airguns have a very powerful dual recoil effect when they are fired that puts lots of stress on scopes and their mounts.
Fortunately for us Airguns generally use the same dovetail rail size as rimfire.

Trust me these are recommended to and from numerous 795 owners as the best ring option out there.

Note: Make sure to get the height and the tube size your scope needs
Look up the stats for your scope and find the objective or "bell" diameter:
Medium Profile for scopes up to 40mm
High Profile for scopes over 40mm
(This is just a rough guide, it is up to you to choose which height is best for your scope)

For example: The BSA Sweet 22 works good with the medium profile mount (Thanks beanz2)

Look up the stats for your scope and find the tube size:
Generally 1 inch or 30mm.





3/8" Dovetail to Picatinny Rail Converter:


http://www.diproductsinc.com/Detail....64828&CAT=3603
http://www.diproductsinc.com/Detail....86947&CAT=3603
DIP and UTG make parts that will adapt your Marlins Dovetail to a Picatinny Rail.
In my opinion this is not a great option for mounting a scope as it will raise your rings and add weight.
This could be a good option for a Red Dot that uses Picatinny

WARNING! Owners of new 795's that seek to use bipods and slings!
It appears that Marlin has decided to save money and use stock sling studs that are simply molded into the stock. Older stocks have real metal studs in them and will accept bipod adapters and sling swivels with ease. These new ones are like the stock sling studs we see on the XT-22 Series of rifles. Reports are these are weak and because of their recessed nature will not mate up with bipod adapters. This is an unfortunate change!
See: http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/a...1&d=1354929644

Bipod:
See new warning above!
Any Bipod that can attach via a sling stud will work my suggestion is:


UTG TL-BP69ST Claw Foot Version
UTG TL-BP69S Rubber Foot Version
Comes with adapter to mount to your sling stud or a picatinny rail.
Very light weight, solid, compact at a great price!




1.25" Sling Swivles:
See new warning above!

Note: 1.25 inch size for GI slings used in Appleseed


GI Sling:

M1 / M14 Sling 1.25 inch Wide
Note: This is the sling advocated for use in Appleseed
http://www.cdnninvestments.com/m1greenwebne.html Currently out of stock


Baby Maglula:
http://www.maglula.com/PistolMagLoad...wbodymags.aspx



DIY Magazine Loader Tool:
aka the "Jukermatic Speed Plunger"
I cut mine out of a DVD case
http://www.thefirearmsforum.com/showthread.php?t=87177


.22 Cal Rifle Bore Snake:
A rod is not going to fit inside the receiver and using a rod from the muzzle end is a bad idea.
You can also use a Bore Snake with out dissembling the rifle


.22 Cal Snap Cap Alternatives:
Most .22 Cal Dummy Rounds you will find are not intended to actually be dry fired.
A cheap readily available solution is "Ribbed Plastic Anchors" Drywall Anchors found at the hardware store.
Yellow #4-6 x 7/8" or White #8-10 x 1" work well for different 22LR firearms.
Make sure to rotate them so the same spot doesn't get hit over and over.
Sometimes you can even get them to feed in a magazine.

Boyd’s Stocks:
http://www.boydsgunstocks.com/
Many Many Colors Available!
Note: They are now Drop in Fit for either the 60 or 795 separately (In the past they where not see the previous generations below)
Confirmed by Panchira! to be 100% drop in


Rimfire Hunter (Formerly known as the Hunter / Target)
http://www.boydsgunstocks.com/Boyds-...fles-s/196.htm



Rimfire Varmint Thumbhole
http://www.boydsgunstocks.com/Boyds-...fles-s/187.htm



SS Evolution
http://www.boydsgunstocks.com/Replac...fles-s/186.htm



Tacticool
Discontinued (Limited edition) It appears that Boyds has finally added the Tacticool to the list of stocks they make for the 795




Boyds Stocks have not always been Drop in Fit
Note: the generation names are mine not Boyds, these are from observation over the years

First Generation stocks were cut for the Marlin 60’s Tube
They required the trigger guard area to be extended the magazine well to be cut and the tube area plugged.


Second Generation stocks were not cut for the M60 Tube or the 795 Magazine well
They required the trigger guard area to be extended the magazine well to be cut



Third Generation stocks are now fully drop in cut individually for either the M60 or the 795

Nice Job with the pics and links, my original thread is getting to the point of not being very useful so this was a great idea.

Again, best $150 anyone can spend on a rifle!

Thanks guys!

Btw I was looking thru Numrich and came across a part number for more wood stocks that should fit the 795!

http://www.gunpartscorp.com/catalog/...30A&catid=4066


Edit: It will fit the 795 with some work done to the trigger guard and bolt hold open areas of the stock. Also it does not come with sling studs apparently.

I do not think that the SS evolution comes with studs, but I could be wrong.
The member that posted this might be able to tell you:
http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...postcount=2001
But looking at photos it does not seem to have any.

I know that some of their models such as the tacticool and the rimfire target hunter actually have 3 studs total. Two in the front so you can mount both a bi-pod and a sling.

I shot my 795 after a year without shooting it and was quite impressed with it's accuracy and my shooting as well lol. I recommend this gun to all my shooting buddies.

I just ordered a Boyd's 3rd gen rimfire hunter for my 795. Will post pics up and give detailed report of any fitment issues.

Nice! Congrats!
Should be a really nice stock my GF likes hers that I fit to her rifle.
What color did you get?
Yes, please let us know how the new fitment is!

I got the pepper one diff shades of gray/black. I was really turned off before they offered the 3rd gen. I didn't want to mod a stock and still wouldn't fit right.

@Chaos47 thanks for putting this thread together. So much good info!

Nice, under the paint on my Tacticool it is Pepper (I know from fitting the guard and free floating the barrel) I guess they used scrap or flawed wood because some other people report theirs being Nutmeng and Royal. Sometimes I wonder what it would look like if I stripped it's paint off..

My girlfriends Hunter Target is Sky Blue which is blue and gray, it is really nice!
I like the weight and feel of the stock, it is well balanced.

Yours should look great! I hope it drops right in for you.

Thanks! I love these rifles so it was about time I put all my info in one place

Just shot my Marlin 795 today for the first time. Boy is it fun!

It was at an indoor range so max distance was ~15 yards. I plan to hit an outdoor range later this week to try it at some range. I also ordered the tech-sights which I hope will be arriving soon.

FWIW, I shot 200 rounds of CCI Mini-mag without a hitch. I have a brick of Federal cheapos that I'm really hoping my Marlin eat up. Gotta save those pennies!

Thanks for finding this. Can you clarify your statement "should fit"? Do you expect it to fit and they just don't list the 795 or do you expect some modification will be required? I missed out on the last Numrich wood stock so I'm interested in this.

If it was designed for the 70 like they say it should fit the 795.
But since I have no first hand knowledge of the stock I can not say for sure.

The only things I can think of is maybe the trigger guard would not fit 100% I know older marlin magazine fed rifles had a 2 part guard (But I think they used the same guard channel size). They also lacked the Bolt Hold Open lever (Which shouldn't be a problem as it should just go thru the hole in the stock cut for the magazine well)

So the best I can do is say "should fit". The last ones where beautiful and a great value and option. I doubt they there will be much more of these available. Order one and tell us how it goes!

I went to try out my new tech sights, wow. What have I been missing. Everyone needs some tech sights if you want to switch from scope to irons . They are made excellent and super easy to aim. Even with my shakey hands. I have to get used to irons and get a sling to stop my hands from moving around

Mine just shipped out yesterday! Can't wait to try them out. The stock sights are TERRIBLE.

I just got mine from Big 5. So far I've taken it apart and lubed the sear and bolt thoroughly along with running some patches down the barrel. I racked the bolt a bunch of times while it was lubed to try and break off any burs. It seems a lot smoother now, I can't wait to fire it. My Tech-sights should be waiting for me when I get home. I'll follow up with some pictures once I have everything together.

One question, is it legal to bend the transfer bar that prevents trigger pulls when a magazine isn't in?

There may be over spray of paint inside the receiver. That is probably what you have smoothed out by working the action. Many people suggest taking a scrub pad to the inside of the receiver and cleaning out that paint. Personally I just let the parts polish together from shooting it.

Yes it is legal to defeat the magazine disconnect.
Just bend the Magazine Disconnect bar's tab up which will remove the pressure on the transfer bar.

Here's my 795 with a flash suppressor.

The next one is next to my M4 length AR-15.

Then its a close up of the tech-sights.

Finally the 795 with the M4 extended and an Arsenal AK-74 for comparison.

No the shape of the action on the bolt actions is completely different then the shape of the semi autos.

Is that the "Pepper" stock? I'm kinda stuck between that one, the Nutmeg and the Jacaranda...Looks sweet, by the way!

Yes it is the pepper hunter. Well worth the $! Believe it or not it plopped right in no modification required. Though if you want to free float the barrel you will need to do some sanding, which I'll do later. The fore grip (under the barrel) is quite longer then stock and the palm swell is a lot wider which fit me and my fiencee better. The weight balance is great the finish is mate but if you want to I'm sure you could polish or spray on a gloss veneer.
