I'm still debating on getting one piece scope rings, or tech sights.

Maybe both? LOL

Newbie question, is the bolt supposed to hold open when I pull the charging handle and there's no magazine inserted? With a mag in it will lock by just pulling back on the handle. Without I have to push the charing handle in to lock it open. I did a clean and lube not too long after I got it home. I might have reassembled wrong.

No it is not supposed to hold open with no magazine inserted, unless you hold the lever up with your finger.

Didn't get to use mine at all since I spent most of my time butchering the pig on Sunday.

I love Marlin 795, too. Super light and a real tack driver. Best value for the money.

Shot over 500 rounds (Winchester) over the weekend, and not a single failure.
I was shooting bottle caps off at 20+ yards, using iron sights. Amazing accuracy.

With passage of AB962, I lament that the days of 500 rounds shooting days may be over, but heck, gonna enjoy as long as ammo, though scarce, is still available.

Here is mine ready for the Appleseed in Dulzura. Could not leave it stock, painted olive green and added some grip to it. Centerpoint 3x9 scope and GI sling.

How do you like the ATI stock? Does it make much of a difference?

its awesome! i couldt get it on at first because i didnt have a dremel too, so i used a hot knife (which was retarted), but when i got my dremel tool it took maybe 15 minutes of work to get on nice and snug. the stock gives it a nice sturdy feel, especially with the pistol grip.

Does the barrel free float now after you put the ATI stock on? Could you put the original stock next to it for a comparison of the dimensions of it? Can you tell I'm on the fence about the stock? LOL

Because of this thread, I went out and bought one from Big 5. Wow, I must say that I never knew shooting a .22lr rifle would be this much fun! Unfortunately, or should I say fortunately, I never experienced the stock trigger pull (I heard it was around 8-9 pounds) as I did the trigger job once I got it home. After doing that, I would like to say it's somewhere around 4 pounds. I need a trigger pull gauge to verify that. I could work on it some more but I'm perfectly happy with it the way it is right now. This rifle is extremely light. However, my mounted centerpoint 4-16x40mm scope was not so light so now it has some weight.

The rifle ate everything that I gave it. Luckily, my friend gave me different types of ammo to use:

CCI Blazer
Remington Viper 22 Hyper Velocity
American Eagle
Federal Champion Bulk Value Packs

I had 2 stovepipes using American Eagle. The others were flawless. My targets are shown below (@25 yards). Yea, I had a couple flyers but overall I definitely enjoyed shooting this rifle. Tomorrow, I'm heading out to a 100 yard range and that should be an eventful day as well.

Let's list all the accessories for the 795...


So far, I've seen a new bolt handle, aluminum trigger guard, ATI dragunov style stock, muzzlelite bullpup conversion (anybody done this? ) and tech sights.

That's pretty much it?

I've heard there's a way to free float the barrel by dremeling/sanding out the stock? Has anyone done this and have instructions on how to do it?

Big 5 sells Marlin 795 magazines. $16.99 IIRC. I saw the 10rd nickel mags in two different Big 5 stores just last week.

Purchased a scope for my marlin here on CG...it's a 50mm, I'm going to need high rings probably, right?

I think I'm going to go with a GAMO one piece mount, hopefully it'll get rid of the 'scope walk' I'm having with the weaver rings...

These are on sale at Big 5 again for $159 and a $20 rebate, just FYI. Going to go pick one up, if it's half as good a shooter as my 925 bolt-action, I'll be stoked.

I just bought one from Big 5 yesterday, now the waiting starts. On another note, Cheaper Than Dirt has clips for the 795 for $14.31, does anyone have any comments on these?

Try www.bkltech.com. I got one of their mounts (this one, to be exact: http://www.bkltech.com/1_inch_Dia_6_..._p/bkl-260.htm) for my Marlin 60 after the Weaver rings walked. S-O-L-I-D.

That looks like the correct marlin part # and that is a pretty good price.

Good Luck!

So no one is into the chipmunk /squirrel "animal crackers" stock as a mod?
Way cool, for kids.
I will be looking for some, soon, for my brand new grand-kids that will need them in about 5-10 years.
Stocking up on LR WW, CCI, Rem, Fed. ammo bricks, too, for the sweet little gals.
4th Generation Californians that will know how to shoot!
Well, I just remembered, the parents bailed out to Oregon. But it is close to California!
So I say it counts.
The newer generations are just regrouping, out of range; a solid offense in the future, I'd bet.They will be back.
They will be back!!!!

I got my weaver (crap) rings on there pretty tight tonight, with my new(to me) 6-18x50 bushnell banner that I picked up though CG.

HOPEFULLY this weekend I'll get out to the range for a bit. If they hold then they hold, if not then I'll look into either BKL or the GAMO ones. 55+shipping sounds a bit much for rings though, That's 1/3 of the rifle already. I think I'll try the gamo mount, if it doesn't hold, then I will have to spring for the BKL ones.

I'm spending way to much on this rifle that I bought so I wouldn't start buying a bunch of stuff, like I would have for the 10/22!

I'm thinking about putting a mock suppressor on the front and have the front sight screw somehow hold it in....or maybe I'm just getting carried away.

Try a little blue loctite where the rings grab the dovetail. That should help. I did that with my Weaver rings before buying the BKL's. It held the smaller 4x Simmons scope fairly well, but I wanted something bulletproof to hold the beefier Mueller APV scope I replaced it with. The BKL was the answer for me. Yes, $55 is a bit pricey when compared to the rifle's cost (what isn't?), but it's a pretty reasonable price for a top notch rings/mount combo overall. I KNOW mine won't be creeping, ever.

Shot mine yesterday for the first time. The stock sights are terrible, but even then the rifle is very accurate! Mine didn't like Federal American Eagles, but it did well with another Federal Bulk pack I got from Wal-Mart. Happy with this one!
