All helpful information but I wasn't aware you're supposed to link to another forum without permission.

The model 995 is a magazine fed, cheaper model Marlin sold in retail department stores back when they could. It's not a mag, it a .22LR only semi auto with cheap wood, I know I have one! Mine still has the remnants of the sticker under the fore-stock!

As far as the 10/22 I would not own one as I got spoiled owning a Marlin model 60 in stainless steel and it holds 14 rounds of .22LR. It also has the micro grooved barrel which make it's accuracy phenomenal! When I first got it would not feed as it should so I sent the receiver in and they sent a new improved version with some definite trigger and sear work done at the factory!

That's another thing that frosts my butt. In almost every catalog you get on accessories you see tons for the 10/22, stocks, sights, etc. But not even a different stock for the Marlin 60, while they even make a retro stock for the 10/22 to make it look like an M1 carbine! To say there is no preferential treatment for some makes and not others is so much horse do do.

While I do appreciate the info, my decision was made for me almost two years ago! He decided not to sell, so that was that. Anyway, thanks again for the replies, but I think we can let this two year old irrelevant thread die...

Boyd's Riflestocks has Marlin 60/795 aftermarket stocks...all of which ROCK!
Ross Thumbhole In stock now
SS Evolution in stock now
and others which pop up from time to time

Also, if you can find a Ramline model 70 stock, they slip right into those as well, whether Lockarm or Folding.
I can't remember if the 995 has LSHO or not, but if it does, treat it like a 795 when inletting the LSHO lever hole.


The Lockarm can also be converted to a Folder by means of an ATI-SKS Retrofit Kit. Check your state laws for legality.
I think Cali, NY, NJ, DC, & Ill prohibit them.

To my way of thinking, the reason Ruger 1022's have such a huge aftermarket is because the original rifle is a plinker.
If you want anything better than pie-plate accuracy, you have to upgrade it.

A Marlin 60 or 795 (or any of the many semi-auto derivations) will give you dime sized groups at 25 & 50 yards right outta the box if you treat it right.

Its like the Ruger 1022 is like an AK47 and the Marlin 60/795 are like an AR15.
Ruger eats anything and shoots pie-plate groups, while the Marlin hums rounds into dime-sized groups & needs more cleaning.

Current sales...
Ruger 1022 - slightly over 7 million sold since 1963.
Marlin 60 - slightly over 13 million sold since 1960.
Obviously the Marlin has sold way more & is more popular...but has little aftermarket support, mostly because it doesn't really NEED anything...
other than aftermarket stocks & a DIP trigger/guard combo

Boy you guys taught me a couple of things I certainly had no idea of. I never would have thought Marlin outsold the Ruger by that much!! I love Rugers also but had a Marlin Camp Gun in each of my cruisers and we loved them cause they took the S&W 9mm mags and were interchangeable, something you don't want to frig with in a fire fight is trying to get the right mag in the right firearm!!!
I also never thought there was that much good aftermarket stuff for the model 60, man I love that new stock on yours, makes it look somewhat like a MG42 Kraut machine guns, man my dad hated those things during the War! Ours sounded like a woodpecker while the MG42 and MG43 sounded liked rip paper! How I digress when I get going. Thanks again gentlemen for your great comments and pics, I have been somewhat remiss in my gun boards lately. Hey check me out in Facebook under "Pennyroyal Firearm Safety" started out as a frigging hobby for crying out loud and I'm supposed to be retired!!

Which reminds me...I need to do a vid using my "Select-Fire Finger" with the 795 in a few months
But MG42 is a bit quick...I'm more AK47-speed...and I'm still working on correcting those Shooter's Ridge 25-rd 795 mags...

I've been studying/practicing J. Miculek's technique for a couple years now...and between that and intense training...
gotten bloody quick...just need to work on precision a wee bit more...sometimes I move past the target
instead of making the proper hesitation...but it gets better as I practice.
