Default Scope Rings for Marlin Model 795

I bought some cheap rings that are supposed to mount on the 3/8" grooved rail on my Marlin Model 795. The problem is when I tighten the rings onto the grooves the rings are off center and crooked, I have tried mounting with the screw on both sides and turnng the clamp on the rings but nothing seems to work. Any ideas? The rings are FM brand.

Thanks

50/50 chance that it ain't the rings.

First, Micrometer check the rings...and test for true as well...Brownell's has a scope mounting kit that is invaluable.

Now for the Other Possibility...
A run of 795's had horrible 3/8'ths rails...instead of measuring .43 all the way, they measure from .44-.46
Of course, that means nothing will fit properly on the rail...until it's resolved.

Take a digital micrometer, and measure every centimeter or so...if you get anything other than .43 all the way down, you got a goofed one.

Choices are...send it back to Marlin, where they'll fix it & return it to ya...
OR if it's out of warranty, DIY with a triangle file & some black Krylon to clean it up after.
Even if it's out of warranty, I'd still call Marlin first...you never know...

At least it's a fairly easy fix...just a bloody annoying one.
I'm hoping the new Factory in Illion, NY will resolve this sort of thing with the new toolings.

I am going to put my one on the cheap azz rigns. Get yourself a decent pair of rings. I like Millet angl-lock rings for my rimfires.

It could very well be the rings...as the least I'm willing to use are Weaver rings...

Although Leapers has come out with a pretty nifty One-piece scope mount/ringset that I kinda am getting drawn towards...got a few folks testing them now on another board to get long-term results...but so far, they look pretty darn good.
