Default Marlin 795 VS Mossberg Tactical .22

Alright guys, i need you opinion here. Will be my first rifle. I really like to look of the Mossberg as it looks like an AR with the price of the .22. I have a few buddys that have Marlins and really like them, and the price is a little less...

Help! LOL

thanks guys!

The Tactical is a Mossberg 702 Plinkster (made by Braztech in Brazil) in a dress up kit. Reviews on the Plinkster tend to be a bit hit or miss. Some work fine, others are jam-o-matics.

The Marlin 795 is kind of a plain Jane which is surprising accurate out of the box, and generally extremely reliable (since it's based on a Model 60 action which has been around since 1959). Depends on what your priorities are for your first rifle: good looks or reliability and accuracy.

I would get the Marlin. The Mossberg may look like an AR, but it does not function/handle like one. It is the Mossberg equivalent to the 795 in an AR suit.

What I have isn't very popular with a lot of people because UTG gets bashed a lot. But it has served me well and has kept zero no problem.

http://www.amazon.com/UTG-5th-3-9X50...9411305&sr=1-1

It is an illuminated mill dot and comes with a sun shade and flip up covers so its an excellent value for the price. It is really big with the shade on, but looks great on the rifle proportion wise.

Whatever scope you get many people suggest a one piece mount for the rings like this
http://www.amazon.com/UTG-Airgun-Pro...ef=pd_sim_sg_3
Just make sure to get the height and tube size you need

And here are some preemptive strike links:

Chaos47 hit the Marlin 795 list righ on the dot. DIP products are a must know about if you ever crack your trigger guard (which I did once), Rimfirecentral has tons of great info, I dont use a bipod, but UTG is just fine, after all it is a 22lr and recoil is near zero so Air Rifle products work just fine! He also recommends the UTG scope mount which is right on, I use the Leapers version which is the same thing: http://www.opticsplanet.net/leapers-...m2pa-25h4.html
You can get nice replacement stocks as well: http://calguns.net/calgunforum/showt...&highlight=795
Follow the link and scroll real far down and you will see pictures and the guys email address that makes the stocks.

Now for scopes:

I use:
Leupold Mark AR 1x4
Nikon 2x7 - $100
BSA Sweet 22 - $80
Tech Sights - $70
Bushnell 1x4 - $80 opticsplanet
Leupold 1x4 VX - $80 ebay

Scope recommendations in price order and reverse quality order, I own them all.

1. Simmons 3-9x32 AO (around $60)
2. Centerpoint 4-16x40 AO (Walmart around $70)
3. Mueller APV 4-14x40 AO (joeboboutfitters.com around $125)
4. Weaver 40/44 6.5-20x44 AO (Natchez around $175)

I believe the Mueller is the best quality scope and glass that you can buy at that price point. The Weaver 40/44 is my best scope, made in the Phillipines, excellent glass, excellent turret adjustments and fit and finish are perfect. All are acceptable for a .22lr for plinking and casual target work out to 50 yds and out to 100yds for hunting. There are Weavers, Burris, Nikon, Sightron and Leupold scopes that are much, much better but at a much, much, much higher price point.

What you pay a lot for in higher priced scopes is their ability to withstand high recoil. So gotta ask yourself if you really need that. Natchez has some nice scope offerings (Chinese made) for inexpensive $$$ from 4X out the 8-32X all less than $100 including Tasco and some folks really like the Truglo 6-24x40 AO for around $70. I have been disappointed with two different BSA scopes and will not purchase another but some folks swear by them. Just my opinion.

havent shot a 795

but i do have the tact22 from mossberg...mine has been flawless since break-in, got 3 extra mags for it, and never looked back

only drawback, the sights are sub-par but once you get them zeroed at your desired distance the rifle will def hold its own
with the factory "iron" sights i can get sub 2" groups at 50ft...which is not bad like i said for the cheapy sights

bottom line, there are better options, but they do cost more
