Scope

The seller just listed the model, an 8 point 3x9-40. Since I have the same model, that I paid $20 to put on my muzzle loader, I have experience. Mushy adjustment, plastic caps, and 100 yd parallax....

I ordered the 995 "hardwood" version, they still have some available at $47. I would have loved to find the walnut, but I still like it a lot better than the original stock and it's a lot cheaper...

True Oil and Leather Dye

I used instructions for a M1 refinishing a beech stock.

Sand, true oil finish, re-sand, then used leather dye, and final finish using true oil finish. The light brown dye ended up looking like a...

New Project - Model 7000

I just found Model 7000! Not that I really need another .22, but I could not resist buying the monster. It is a later non-T model, as the stock does not have the schnabel fore end.

It is being...

Thanks for everyone's feedback, I decided to go for a single post. I have posted a picture of the finished gun on a separate posting.

New Stock for my 795

So I finished up refinishing the beech stock that I required from Numrich. I added the rubber Pachmayr, sling posts, and the much needed Marlin Bullseye into the stock.

It's not perfect, but...

No posts installed

So the stock doesn't have posts installed, at least not on the front. I am just asking opinions on whether or not I should install one or two posts.

Single or dual front sling studs

I am currently refinishing an 995 stock to modified to fit my 795. Looking at the Boyd's stocks, they install dual front studs for the front sling mounts. I believe that this is for adding a bi-pod...

Fun with Marlin CS

Well, Marlin has sent me two "replacement" hammer strut pins. Each has the correct part number, but the diameter of the pin is not correct. The broken pin has a diameter of .082" where the...

Marlin Service

Although the gun is less than 3 years old, I didn't even think to talk to service. I assumed after I changed the springs and trigger assy, and various polishing that I have voided my warranty. In...

Had to resort to loaner 10/22 at Appleseed

I just got back from Appleseed this weekend and I had the shame of having to retire my 795 for the weekend. My gun would not properly eject the shells and made it completely unreliable.

Mystery 795

I was recently traveling in Alabama and stopped into a sports authority and found a 795 that was different than what I would call a normal 795. First, the stock has the molded sling posts instead of...
