Default Noob question

Got my sons a couple of 795s for Christmas (took advantage of the Turner's Black Friday ad for $99) We will be on BLM land tomorrow to break them in. Question is...Why don't these need some kind of tool to release the mag (ie. Bullet Button)? What is the difference between these and other rifles that need to tool?

Rifles that need bullet button have evils such as pistol grips, collapsible stocks, ect...

They also need to be centerfire rifles, the 795 is a rimfire.

As others have mentioned, the big thing is that a .22 is exempt from alot of the crazy anti gun laws in this state. Thats only logical as you really couldn't hurt/kill someone with a .22 anyways!

Congrats on the 795, best $100 you will spend!

I got mine today at basspro since I had gift cards from christmas. It is $139.99 plus the $25.00 fees and tax. This is before the rebate.

just picked mine up today. Gotta love it. Got a spare mag to go along with it.

Made the mistake of buying some .22 rounds from walmart though. Just asked the kid for 4 boxes of .22, guess I should have specified as he rang me up for 4 boxes of .22 short, I realized this 2 minutes too late. Since the transaction was final, I could not return the damn things so I now have 200 rounds of .22 short and nothing to shoot them out of. That was a waste of $13.50.

Aside from that inconvenience, picked up the rifle without a hitch. Havent stripped it down or anything, and I was wondering if anyone would like to put forward their tips on cleaning and oiling it? Or even if it is necessary to strip it down and clean it straight from the factory?


As a side note, if anyone needs 4 boxes of .22 short, shoot me a PM

Check Marlin's website, they have a gun store locator that even gives the price of the rifle, from that store. That's how I found the dealer for my rifle, since it was cheaper there than at big 5, by like 40 bucks.

Don't forget the $20 rebate offer is still good for purchases made by December 31, 2009.

Default after market charging handle

has anyone purchased the charging handle upgrade featured in the folllowing link?

http://www.rimfiretechnologies.com/S...lts.asp?Cat=50

The 795 has a light bolt and supposedly makes it less picky about ammo. I wonder if changing to the rimfire technologies charging handle changes the feeding dynamics?

Anyone doe this upgrade? Any opinions?

Has anyone come out with a trigger kit for these yet?

It awful switching from my rugers, CZs, and Savages to the Marlin because of the trigger pull.

EDIT: Nevermind, I read the rest of the thread and sounds like there is a solution that may or may not cause problems.

FYI Marlin is running a "Spring 2010 Promo" on the 795 for a $25 rebate and it is good for the whole year.

I just started my DROS on a Marlin 795 so I don't have the rifle with me yet, but generally, a bipod attaches to the front sling swivel. That is why you sometimes see rifle stocks with two front sling swivels; one for the bipod and the other for a sling. The 795 only has one front sling swivel so you would have to attach the front of the sling to the actual bipod.

The mount for my bipod attaches to the stud, but has a replacement stud built in. Do most bipods not have that?

Will be picking up my 795 tonight. Can't wait.

Does anyone know if a bull barrel (heavy barrel) can be used on the 795 and where to get one that fits?

I just picked up my 795 on Monday and after taking it home and cleaning and lubing it i took it down to the range. I tried out 2 different types of ammo (Winchester Wildcat and Remington golden bullet) and the Remington seemed to work best. Out of 100 rounds of the Winchester I had at least 1 failure to fire out of each mag and it was extremely dirty. The Remington i went through about 150 rounds and no failures. The Remington also seemed to be a lot more accurate with my rifle, I had 1" grouping at 50 yards with all 10 rounds in the mag. I am very happy with this rifle and its price.

In the manual it gives you a cleaning procedure, do this before you fire it.

Just 18?
No worries; you have a lifetime ahead of you to figure it out!
Some folks oil em once and don't worry about it for years; and some, like mine, have to be torn down and cleaned after a few 100 rounds due to the carbon buildup in the little nooks and crannies. Some folks use graphite or teflon type oven heated products instead of oiling the action. Some just rub a pencil on the reciever's guts.
Over at http://tinyurl.com/Marlin-22 you will find volumes of cleaning and ammo tips
Have fun.

I'm having issues with failures to feed and failures to eject. I've tried adjusting the lips on the magazines and I've tried a couple brands of ammunition. The problem seems intermittent.

When the failure to feed occurs, there is a long scrape along the top of the top round in the magazine. I wonder if the bolt isn't coming back all the way.

Has anyone had issues with theirs or have any ideas what I might want to try?

What type of ammo are you using? Make sure you use High Velocity ammunition. Standard wont feed correctly due to it just doesn't have enough force to push the bolt back all the way.

Thats actually not true... Donno what kind of ammo your using but standard works fine and is recommended for target and plinking more than high velocity ammo..

I've used two brands of high velocity ammunition. Both had the same problems.

I used Winchester wildcat and Fiocci somethin or other. I picked up some Remmington bulk high velocity, brass plated 36 grain and will try that.

I think the wildcat is just really cheap. I have pushed 200 rounds through my 795 without a hiccup, but I broke it in with HV ammo rather than SV.

I broke in my rifle with both wildcat and golden bullet. The golden bullet seemed to work better than the wildcat i had no FTF or FTE. The wild cat was extremely dirty and made my fingers black after the first 50 rounds. I also had much better accuracy with the golden bullet even with a crappy scope (1" @ 50 yards). The wildcat seemed to jump around a bit more (2"-2 1/2" @ 50 yards). I plan on trying out some Federal champion this weekend.

I too have been having troubles with FTF and FTE. Rifle was thoroughly cleaned and lubed prior to shooting. It's only seen about 500 rounds so far and now it's pretty much useless. The last shoot it had a FTF and FTE, couldn't even extract with a knife, had to use a cleaning rod. Used only high velocity ammo (remington golden bullet, winchester 333 pack and bulk federal) with failures on all types. It wont even extract a fresh round now after full cleaning and scrubbing the chamber.

I think mine's a lemon, it's going back for warranty work.

When it felt like shooting, it was accurate.

Dang, thats too bad. mine & my dads both have around 2,000 rounds through them (Winchester 333 bulk, Remington 525 bulk) and no problems whatsoever.

Sorry you got a bad one, they're really good guns!

I'm not sure why I keep having issues with this gun. Sometimes the cases get stuck in the chamber and won't eject. ( seems like the extractor claws slip right off the rim of the case ). Sometimes the bolt slides right over the next round in the magazine and I'm left with an empty chamber. Sometimes I get a case that stovepipes. I'd say the reliability of this rifle is 80% or less. I'm very disappointed. I figured the problems I had when I first got the rifle were part of the breakin period. That was about 1500 rounds ago. The problems never worsened or got better.
