Standard rings like to slide off the end of the dovetail groves on the receiver. These do a better job.
This one has a recoil pin, if I can recall, the Marlin receiver does not have a recoil relief cut into the receiver.

Default problem with my Marlin 795

My first gun purchase was a Marlin 795 in 2012. I use it at the range at least once every couple of months. Recently I have found that I would have periodic misfires. I would pull the trigger and no "bang". I would eject the round and see a punch mark on the end of the end of the cartridge from the firing pin.

Last week I took it to the range and I had 7 misfires out of 10. I have found that when I took these misfired rounds and put them into an old Harrington Richardson bolt action 22lr, the H&R would fire them.

My question is does the firing pin on a Marlin 795 wear down or is there a spring weakening??

Update on scout scope efforts. I was about to email someone to see if they'd make me a rail when I was searching for example products to get the point across. When I was doing this I came across the "dovetail short rail" linked here:

I'll be getting it Monday. Already have the scope.

Also, check your chamber to see if the firing pin has peened the edge of the chamber, this can cause seating/misfire/extraction issues on .22lrs. There is a "chamber" iron tool that works nicely to remove any divot if one develops.

I havent read in this thread for at least 2 years and was catching up and saw this post.

In my experience, all mfrs have a spoken or unspoken lifetime warranty on guns and I have always had great results when I needed something very long after the supposed warranty. I never paid for anything. They like to see the gun and situation, dont try to resolve it on the phone, just send it and I think you would be very pleased at the result.

So last night I was able to install the rail and complete the DIP charging handle installation.

The DIP charging handle did require some filling, which only took a couple of minutes. Also it's fitment seems to be tighter tolerance than the factory handle which I like, once everything got into place it seemed very solid. I really like the look and feel over the factory handle.

For the scout scope rail, it was a straight forward matter of tapping out the rear sight dovetail and tapping in the provided dovetail. The provided instructions were easy to follow. This is the scope I purchased for this rifle:

https://aimsportsinc.com/optics/scou...r-reticle.html

Luckily it comes with scope mounts that have open space for a sight. I am able to barely see the top of the tech sight front post through the peep sight with the scope mounted. I'll likely try some scope mounts that are see through if I decide not to lower the scope mounting further.

Still did not get a chance to go to the range, but I did get a few more pictures.

I ended up emailing them, they told me I would have to send it to them on my own dime and if they deemed it to be warrantable they would repair and send it back. They also said, if it was not warrantable they would quote me on the cost of repair. The gun is out of warranty and would not answer my question of whether or not there is an extended warranty that I am not awarenof.

So basically, I have to send the gun in at my own expense and if it's not covered, pay for the repairs. All on a 120 dollar gun. So I will throw it in the back of the safe and buy a Ruger. I will no longer spend my money on Marlin rifles.

Range Report:

Once I cinched everything down (scope rings were not tight enough initially), I started to get things dialed in. I do really like using the scout scope. From what I can tell groups were tighter than using the peep sights (expected). They also seemed consistent. At this point, the rail seems to fulfill my need for a scout scope mount on the Marlin 795.

I bought my 795 when my kids were young, they learned how to shoot a rifle with it. My daughter just finished her second year of college and is home for the summer. We went shooting a couple days ago and the Marlin went with us, she still loves that rifle and it still shots great after all these years. It now sports a bipod and cheap Simmons 3x9 optic and easily shoots quarter sized groups.

Has anyone threaded the barrel on his Marlin 795? Who did it and may I ask how much did it cost? I see that Tornado Technologies does it for $129, but that is almost the cost of a new rifle.
