Fits perfectly in my older 1960s Glenfield model 70.

Finally going to the range to try the new rifle on Sat. I was wondering what people are using to clean their bores? I bought a rod at Wally world but it fit really tightly even though it was advertised as being for a .22 bore.

I ended up buying a bore snake, just wet it with CLP and ran it a few times through the barrel. Being a .22, do you all think I can get away with just using the bore snake or should I try and find a dedicated rod?

i used the wally world on my gsg. but i actually have deweys also. i used the same brush i had from wally on the non-coated dewey. yeah, a little tight. but it gets in there.

lots of debate on boresnake vs. rod. honestly, i prefer the rod. on my ak, i have no choice but to use the boresnake kit it comes with since i cannot easily put a rod from the back w/o bending it slightly. not a good feeling, even if it's a AK to use a boresnake.

i've met some who use boresnake on their GSGs also, which is a pita to strip sometimes (and where I can see the value). but ymmv. do what you feel is right. just for me, i don't get a good feeling, it's anal-retentive clean, using a boresnake. but no, i don't clean my guns after each outing also. just want to do a thorough job if/when i clean.

i'm picking mine up sunday capt! now if badger will just reply back to my email which rings are compatible with 795. i think the rings will almsot be the cost of my rifle too. LOL

I am a big fan of boresnakes. When it comes to the bore, I have compared the performance of a boresnake versus a rod and I can't see a difference. (This was on an AR-15, so very similar diameter to a .22.) Having said that, I still like to use brushes and wipes to get the receiver clean.

just got the 795 for my girlfriend to shoot/keep. paid $149 - $20 rebate

so $130 plus tax/dros (~$165 otd). I am giving her my little 3-9 bushnell off my latest project and ordered myself a new 4-14.5 APV. she's pretty excited about it because it will be something for her to own instead of just using my guns. she also wants a bipod...... should be fun.


thanks for the heads up guys. I pick it up on the 9th

I got some extra magazines today. only 2 though. am listed for a call-back when another 2 or 3 arrive. tee hee i still don't have the rifle though. ain't picking up until sunday.

unfortunately, badger emailed me back and said they don't make rings for my 795. i'm not sure if someone really, really looked into it since i thougth the 795 was modeled from another marlin model. hmmm... i was expecting a little more from badger from a customer service, unless there is really no compatible badger rings for the 795.

As far as I know, the 795 is just the model 60 with a magazine versus the tube...someone correct me if I am wrong.

You are pretty much correct. In fact that's why the charging handle wobbles, it's the old Marlin 60's way of holding the bolt open (before auto open on last shot), you pull the bolt back and then push the handle in.

So yeah, the Marlin 795 has two bolt hold open latches

(I have a 795SS that works well)

Default Finally got to shoot it, what am I doing wrong?

Alright, so I had a great day at SLOSA with the weather turning out nicer than expected.



I set up at the 25yd line, those targets in the pic are at 50 I believe. I started seated and would switch to standing every once in a while. Fired about 250 rounds of Mini Mags, both RN and HP. Did not have one single hiccup for the whole session!

I met some really nice guys there who had some neat toys. A guy next to me had a 10/22 and let me shoot it, which was great as I thought about one of those versus the 795. It was a very nice blued with the wood stock and I may just have to get one of those too! Another guy had a Garand and an M14 that was in really nice shape, as well as a few other rifles. The Garand is anything but quiet when it goes off! I was laughing as I remembered a few scenes in Band of Brothers where there would be someone firing multiple rounds and then suddenly be talking normally to the guy next to him. Its a wonder more of the GIs didn't have hearing problems.

Anyway, the problem I am having is that all of my shots are to the right of the bullseye even as I tried to correct for it. I wonder if I am anticipating or still getting used to the trigger that seems to have "2 stages" because of the initial slack before engagement. I should have let someone else shoot it to see if it was me. I don't think you can adjust the 795s sights for anything other than elevation although it was a bit windy now that I think about it.



You can see where I would switch to standing when the flyers show up.


So any suggestions as to what I can do to correct this? I'm sure its me as the rifle functioned flawlessly and seems reliable as a stone axe. My 7 round mags also worked fine but man reloading new mags is not a fun experience!

Heh, now the sale price is $150! Still not too bad considering what you get. Its back on sale at Big 5 for this week, too bad the rebate is over.

Once again, using a Glenfield Model 70, my Viet Nam era Army D.I. (FT. Polk, LA) bro-in-law who hasn't fired a rifle in 40 years shooting at 100 yards with cheap bulk Federal ammo, kept 150 rounds in an eight inch bullseye.
He was stoked!

How easy are those sights to install? I have zero gunsmithing experience or tools, but I really want to give those sights a try.

There is a screw for the muzzle end; so just unscrew the old sight, screw on the new.
The rear peep sight slides on the rails and is secured by its base and screw.
Then, just sight and adjust.
Easy.

Looking for 795 magazines and came across this website.
https://www.oneclickshooting.com/pro...asp?prod=41176

I can't match the product number for this magazine with the one on my owners manual...

what do you guys think?

edit: shipping is $7.50 flat

Does anyone know how often Marlin runs the rebate promotions?

Looking at possibly getting a 795 for some cheap fun, and wondering when a promotion might come up again.

Thanks!

Anyone know if there are any trigger upgrade kits for it? The original trigger leaves a lot to be desired.

Hey Everyone! I dont live in California, but I do have a new Marlin 759. I'm looking to customize it with a new stock and some add-ons. I found this site and thread and thought you guys might be able to help me. I'm trying to find tactical style stocks for the 759. Or kits to convert it into a MP5, or other type of gun. Let me know what's out there!

Thanks so much!

Just picked up my 795 from the dealer yesterday.
On the front of the Owner's Manual it says "Rifle (22L.R. and 17 Mach 2) With Clip Magazine".

I can't find where Marlin sells a 17M2. Given the low cost of 17M2, I think this would be pretty nifty.

Anybody know anything about a Marlin 17M2? Davidson's shows nothing, neither does the Marlin website.

In case anyone was still wondering, I got mine today and they are the same as the magazine that comes with the 795. I ordered 2, one of them seems to be a much tighter fit than the other but is working better after inserting it a few times.

since it shows a version for the 70, it *should* work for the 795. The 70 was an earlier version of the 795 in my recollection.
