I had the same problem. I had to send it back to Marlin for repair. Came back perfect, but it sucks for a brand new rifle to come like that.

Congrats on the XT-22! Perhaps we'll just have to have our own thread about 'em!

Congrats! It seems you don't see too many SS models out there so that's a nice change.

That's of the main things I like about the 795, how light it is. After shooting it standing all day at the indoor range I appreciated the low weight even more. Why I've kept it stock without adding a single thing.
But dam those Boyd stock sure look good.
My Tacticool seems a little heavy (lots of wood) but it is hard to tell because the scope is heavy.
My GF's target hunter is not too heavy its really well balanced.

I would defiantly say they are worth it. Looks alone it changes the rifle so much but the added rigidity makes them more accurate imo

I have heard that a few early MM generation Remington made had this problem. That they had over tightened the barrel and thus canting the sight. I have a MM with a serial number around 4000 so that is pretty low and its prefect so it wasn't all of them..
That is good that they are just going to get you a different one at the store level.

Nice! Congrats! Which model did you end up with? Wood or Plastic, Mag or tube?

Not a bad idea!
There are wood stocks for them (but I hear you need to order a 925 trigger guard)
It would be good to start a thread about that and other suggested parts like scope bases, rings, and maybe mods?

I hope to join the XT-22 Club before Christmas..
Funny thing is I am seriously thinking about putting it in a tacticool stock too.

Can not really compare them. They are two differnt guns, 795 being an autoloader an the XT being a bolt gun. A better comaprison would be the 925 to the XT-22.

I'm convinced that most of the 22 rifles on the market are more accurate than the ammo available commercially. Auto loaders are favored for Appleseed, so I couldn't comment on the bolt actions, but I've yet to hear anybody claim that there was a clear accuracy winner between a 10/22 vs 795. It is possible there is a bolt action vs auto-loader benefit as there is with centerfire rifles, but again, I doubt it would make a difference with any commercial .22 ammo. The focus is more on which loads each rifle likes the most and which are the most consistent.

As others have said its not really a fair comparison Bolt vs Semi auto. Apple and Oranges. M14 vs M16

Inherently bolt action are supposed to be more accurate because of design.
Not that semi autos can't be accurate I can shoot dime size groups with my 795 at 25yards using a bipod. That's good enough for me.

Bolt action is just a different feel, sometimes its fun to go slower and manually manipulate the action.

There is room for both IMO.

To get any better with anything in .22 LR, you are looking at hand loading. Like sorting brass and bullets by grain weight, and using a diamond scale for the powder weight. Swapping to bolt action won't fix this.

I might start working on one then! I do like the look of the tacticool stock, but the Rimfire Hunter is available and I love the Pepper Laminate

Chaos, I went with the regular synthetic/blued version. I love wood but I hate it when my wood stock guns get knicked and scratched.

I had my 795 for about 2 months. Only took it out to the range once. The two things I am not a big fan of is the synthetic stock and the trigger pull.

The weight of the synthetic stock is nice but the palm swell is too narrow for me. I want the Boyds Tacticool but unfortunately its been discontinued.

As for the trigger I'm not sure if I should get the MCARBO kit or the fogcitytactical spring mod.

Personally I would do the fogcitytactical spring mod if you are comfortable with it. (Your going to have to tear down the action just as far either way)
I've done it on a couple rifles and the trigger pull on them is great.
30 Bucks is pretty steep for a couple springs... you could get a DIP drop in trigger for 10 bucks less then that... or Target trigger and guard for double that.

fogcitytactical spring mod plus target trigger is what I run and I have a great pull IMO.


I do love my Tacticool stock. What I hated about the original stock was the cowboy look of the checkering.

I was going to do a marinetex texture job on it like they do on high end sniper rifles but then I got my Tacticool.
http://www.accurateshooter.com/stock...-to-gunstocks/

Still thinking about painting the Tacticool OD green and doing black texturing on it..



You could do 2 stages of marinetex, one to add girth and after its set do a second with texture

Well I pulled the trigger on some dip stuff earlier this week. I got the trigger/guard combo and the spiral charging handle. Well I was quite disappointed upon fitment. The charging handle didn't fit at all. But I can not blame dip I blame marlin for their loose tolerances. the sides of the charging handle slots in the bolt were off a bit. A bit tight at the bottom like this \_/ a little sanding with 220 and some polishing it's now like this |_| and the handle slides in with minimal clearances. No slop at all! My god it feels so different! I did opt to round a corner of the handle that dings the frame.

Now onto the trigger and guard. The guard was flawless. Fit perfect. BUT the trigger was another story. The safety would not lock because the tang on the trigger was not flush with the safety hole. No biggie very gently dremel work and it slides right in. I say this is a PITA as I don't know how comfy people are with messing with safety stuff. Once that was done the safety worked flawlessly. Adjusting the allen set screws was next. Guesstimated where the trigger contact would be and it was spot on! What luck! Then set the trigger stop, done charge and test WOW it is amazing. I didn't change any springs and the pull is the same weight but the throw is sooooooo short! Test time will be sat pics to follow.

At this point I'm done with mods for the marlin with the exception of more mags or a scope. Ok we'll maybe not done yet looking into a better buffer setup.

I had to fit both of the charging handles that I got, one pre one post. Took a while but enabled me to get a custom fit. Looks great and feels great. Worth it even with the fitting IMO. The original bolt handle is so ugly! I would rather it have the claw handle old M60's had.
I had no trouble with my trigger, glad you got it fit.

I installed my DIP stuff yesterday. I am bummed with the charging handle. I filed to much off and now it is a bit loose.
Looks like I am out the $20 for another, or I will just have to try and live with it. I really was not expecting to have to remove material to make it fit.

SAD...SAD... SAD...

How loose are we talking? Some looseness is not bad, in fact it will enable you to do the manual lock to the rear easier..

Yea I don't know what happened people used to say they where drop in but I got a pre and post version (They didn't have any while helical ones for my GF's rifle in pre size) So I fully expected to have to fit that one but not mine. Had to do them booth a good amount. Did it really slow and check fit it often.

On the front page I have a note that I had to fit mine. I will make it more bold.

It is not real bad, but it is not nearly as tight at the factory original. I just got carried away on the filing; totally my fault. The one I got has the silver helical, and it does look really nice. I may just order another and file very carefully this time. I already dropped $120 last week at DIP (got the trigger + guards, bolt, and scope mount) Messed up this piece, so now I have to drop another $26. Plus, I just finished my wood stock, so there was another $55. Point being, all this money on a $125 rifle.

Everyone has to have a hobby I guess.

Regarding UTG scope profiles,
In Amazon some complain the medium profile wont take a 40mm scope and others didnt have issues. So a 40mm seems to be on the borderline of high and medium profiles depending on the individual scope. If i take the high profile to end the argument, do i start of new problem of the high profile raising the scope too high and losing cheek weld, wrong sight picture, etc? Im on Amazon right now and need to decide this. I dont have a scope yet.

I'd say there is that possibility. Perhaps those with 40mm scopes that "don't fit" have lens caps on? I don't think I could fit them on mine. I'd have to go look to be certain though.

For example, if i buy the UTG 3-12X40 scope, will the medium profile fit and be otherwise correct for the 60/795?

Scope

I dont know if complainers used lens caps or not but dont you want to? So, if caps wont fit the medium, then gotta go high. See, its right on the borderline.

PS...in the UTG line is the 4-16X40 preferred for any reason?

Yes 40mm is the border

There is really know way to be sure if a scope and rings will fit a particular rifle over the web.
If someone has done it they can chime in.
Otherwise you will just have to try it.

Are you looking at reviews particular to the 795? The rifle design and shape also come in play. The height of the receiver and the height of the barrel.

I run high rings on my 50mm. Cheek weld is not a problem but then again I have a higher comb on my stock and a stock pack. There is a bit of gap even with my 50mm with caps on between the scope and barrel.

If I had to do it over again I would probably just buy both and see what fits and then either return the other or keep it for a future rifle.
