Marlin 795SS/795 question

546 Views 7 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  SLCDave
Hi, I am looking into a Marlin 795 or 795SS. Is the rear sight different on these two guns? Also, would you pick this gun over, say, a Savage Model 64 variant?

Thanks for your responses!

I believe the sights are differant

the SS has heavier folding rear sight ;and an orange 'fire' sight in front (hooded)
(the 7000 has NO sights, hint hint)

also , all tho a fine rifle , I prefer Made In USA over Imported By:;)

hope to hear what you decide

Savage Model 64 made in Canada

We found the 64F to handle well and also found it to be quite a fun gun to shoot. This perception was no doubt aided by its 4 lb.pull trigger, which we found quite good for a rifle in this price class. The trigger displayed some creep, but it broke crisply with little overtravel. Locking the bolt back proved no trouble for those with a modicum of strength and dexterity, but could be problematic for some youngsters.

The Model 64F's light weight and weather-resistant stock would seem to make the rifle a good choice to carry afield in pursuit of small game. And, in this age of alloys and polymers, its solid, mostly steel construction should appeal to traditionalists in the market for a plinker, too.

If it was me I would get the Marlin, but that just me.

Or better yet buy both, hold a shoot off between them, and let us know.

looking at Cabelas site , that must be Utah ? (opens Thu-8/25)

synthetic & stainless is a great combo for durabilty

I was also looking at the 795SS, but opt'ed to go with the heavy 'bull' barrel
7000 model in the auto/clip/syn ...

curious if you looked at your local wallyworld (maybe a back up plan if Cabelas dont come thru)

hope you get what your looking for , let us know ...

while at Cabelas don't be afraid to look at their 'store' brands for scopes
Pine Ridge and Trekker-- I guess it all depends on what you want/expect
suggest for most usability adjustable objective is a must

if you think you will need it , dont over look the package deal Cabelas have on Burris "spoting scope & rifle scope"

:)
