Its amazing what you can do with a Marlin 795...get em' for $139 regular price, or on sale for as little as $99...
then send in the $25 Marlin rebate to bring 'em down to low cost of $74!!

So...ya buy a couple 795's on sale...then get crazy!!
Ramline model 70 Stock ($14.95 @ Numrich), & an ATI SKS Retrofit kit to make it a folder ($9)...not bad for $25!!


Bullpupstocks.com Muzzlelite for the Marlin 70...a bit more costly...($125), which costs more than the dang rifle!!



And then there's the Well P-90 airsoft stock mod...($30)


This was a 1022 mod than also works with the Marlin 795!
In fact, anything that a 1022 can fit in can be modded for use by a Marlin 795...they're skinnier by about a half inch...
so you have to fill in the void area.

And then there's my personal favorite...take any M1 carbine stock & inlet/adjust for a Marlin 795...911JB over at RFC did this one!
http://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=327330

Can ya tell which is the real M1 & which is the 795?



Basically, you are only limited by your wallet & modding skills when it comes to doing things to the Marlin 795!
On the upside, you don't have to immediately replace the barrel to get precision...
they're already pretty darn precise due to the Micro-groove barrels!!

And Champion has a 25-rd mag that works pretty well!
I've got two of the grey-follower mags. Avoid the green ones made by SR unless your rifle is pillar bedded or regular bedded.
Actually, come to think of it, if you restock a rifle, you oughta bed it anyway...just makes more sense while yer in there.
Might as well shrink yer groups by half...lol

Marlin is always the best bang for your buck. great accuracy at bargain prices. Buy used and save even more. It takes more rounds than most will ever shoot to shoot out a barrel so used is hardly ever a bad way to go for a .22. Marlin 60's can be bought for under 100 used. and 25n for around 150.
