The Marlin 795- not so popular at RFC?



Log in to see fewer ads
I recently purchased a Marlin 795 and I really like it. I don't tend to see much in the way of threads about it on RFC. Is it that it just isn't liked or is it just not spoken of? Something else? Is this not the forum for it? If so- sorry.

Anyone else have one of these here?

Here's the collection as it sits, top to bottom: Glenfield Model 100, Marlin Model 600 (with Weaver 2.5-7), Marlin XT-22VR (with cheap BSA 6-24) and new Marlin 795 (pictured with Simmons 4x)

I don't know if they are "popular" or not, but the few I have shot have been reliable and plenty accurate for squirrels!

Plug in 795 into the search engine, you'll find a lot of threads with mention of them.

I have it's older sibling the Model 70 or I would have a 795. Most reviews are very positive for a function and accuracy. I believe the turn off for most is the plastic stock.

Here's my 795, I've shot rifleman scores at Appleseed with it. Tech sights, Boyd's stock. I wish the magazine release was more convenient, but I love the gun.

Very happy with my 795. Spent too much on it but still enjoy it.

I shoot a speed steel event every week at my local club with my 795. Most weeks it's the gun in 1st place. I also shoot a weekly off-hand silhouette match with my Mossberg 702. Love my budget competition rifles.

I think the slow traction in the Marlin forum regarding 795 and other rifles is that they are reasonably priced, accurate, reliable, fun to collect and don't require upgrades to function properly. So what is there to talk about other than when one of us gets a new one?!? While I don't have a 795 (I'd like the Liberty Training Rifle variant) I do have the 60, 75C, 99M1, 989M2, 56, 39A, 15Y, 70 Papoose, etc. I'm a fan and always looking towards my next rimfire purchase!

They are a basic, plain, reliable and accurate rifle. Most guys just use them as is so theres not much to post about. I bought 3, kept 1 and gave the others to my son and daughter. I have a bunch more cooler and pretty older Marlin/Glenfield .22s. But I love my 795 as much as the others.

I bought a second one recently and equipped it with Hawke Vantage 2x7AO and am very happy with it. I much prefer it to my 10-22 because of the narrow cross section.
Both are reliable can destroyers.

I also have a Model 70PSS Papoose take down that is very accurate and reliable but the barrel nut vibrates loose in 10 rounds . It is aggravating to use and I would not recommend this product.

Additionally I have the Model 60 50th anniversary model .The Model 60 is the first gun every boy should have. I have already bought my oldest Grandson one.

I was kinda thinking that too. I'm glad to see this rifle is appreciated though. Thanks for the links everyone. I had actually read quite a bit of the older posts already but some I had not. Nice collections too fellas.

Having taken the 795 out twice now we really like it. It has not had any issues cycling high velocity and standard that I have tried with it. The action feels so nice. It's light enough that when I shoot it offhand there is actually some recoil- enough to make it off target a bit. Not used to that I guess.

I actually put some money down and got the paperwork started up on yet another Marlin today too.

I'm sure we all have different reasons for owning Marlins, and value is still probably a big consideration. For me, they have been one of the few .22 semi autos that really work well with a wide range of ammo and consistently perform well in terms of accuracy! The only rifle I had that didn't shoot well was an early papoose that would not run and I spent a year trying to get it to run (sadly it was nearly new in the box with all original packaging). Since that rifle though all of my examples have run like a sewing machine. Good luck with your next purchase.

795s are buy them, shoot them rifles. They don't really need anything other than ammunition and a target. I got rid of a 10/22 and bought a 795.
