Default Marlin 795 use conversion kits?

Hi I have a marlin 795 and want to convert it. I have found many conversion kits but they say for the Ruger 10/22. The rifles look very similar except on the marlin the safety is behind the trigger and the 10/22 the safety is in the front. Will they work on the 795?

Default convert?

When you say "convert", what do you mean? The 10/22 and 795 are WAy different. I have both
so again, what exactly are you wanting to do to the 795?

Thanks,
Glen

I'm gonna assume that he means to convert it to a tactical themed AR. Kind of like using an Archangel kit with a Ruger 10/22. I could be wrong tho.

Default look like an AR

If I were you, I buy the Mossberg or Colt AR/22

Good luck,
Glen

More stocks are coming as MFR's find out the Marlin 795/60/70PSS share the same stock...but its slow going.
Even with over 20 million total of those three rifles having been already sold...MFR's are lagging.

A Ruger stock can be modded, as can almost any stock, but be aware that it requires a LOT of attention to detail.
The 1022 is 1/2" wider than the 795, so you must figure out what to fill the stock with remove the gaps.
The trigger area has to be remolded to fit the 795.
Now these things are do-able, but VERY time intensive...takes dedication and it wouldn't hurt to have had a gunsmith course.

That being said, folks have fit 795's into MG-24 kits, P-90 airsoft shells, M-1 Garand stocks, and many others with great success.
You are only limited by your imagination and skill level.
