Default Why no love for the marlin 795

This was at 25 yards with a 25rd promag. Using rem thunderbolts.

It's just as accurate as my daughters ruger 10/22 that cost $100 more than what I paid for my marlin. I'm not knocking the 10/22 cause I love shooting hers. But for $150 the marlin is a sweet gun.

The couple of fliers was the shooter (me) not the gun.

Maybe your 795 just doesn't like thunderbolts. I loved my Marlin's when I was younger but sold all but one when I got older.

the 795 is the box magazine version of the model 60 Marlin, which has the tube magazine. pretty much the same action.

i like my model 60. great little rifle and decently accurate with pretty much anything i want to shoot through it.

I also have the Marlin Model 60 version and love it. It was my second firearm after a Marlin 336C. Got them both in 1971 and no real trouble with either over the years. I have no idea how many thousands of rounds I have through the Model 60 but it's gobbled up most everything I've put in it. No doubt the 795 is just as good.

i bought mine used a few years ago. it was made in either 1980 or 1981. no telling how many have been down the tube in this model 60. i know i have put quite a few trhough it myself. even after refinishing it and mounting a scope on it i already had, i still have a little less than a $100 in it. cheap fun!

Yeah definitely cheap fun! I think mine cost $30 new in 1971 with a little Marlin 4x scope. It's actually the Glenfield version and I got it at Globe Shopping City, Mesa, AZ. Got the 336C there too for about $90 with cheap scope. I usually shot iron sights but both scopes did work ok and held zero. Crappy optics of course but hey, if it's free it's for me!

It would be fun to play around with the 795 and I think the barrel is a few inches shorter than my old 60.

the older model 60's have 21" barrels and 18 round tube magazines. Marlin dropped the Glenfield from the name about 1981 or 1982. mine says Marlin Glenfield and they didn't add the LSHO feature until about 1983. that was how i came to date mine about an 1980 or 1981 model.

i have heard that they made a version in about the early to mid 1970's that had a 22" barrel and a 20 round tube magazine. but so far i haven't seen proof of one yet.

My girlfriend is thinking of getting it or the Mossberg 702 Plinkster. I've only heard good about both except they have cheap feeling stocks, but what can you expect for a sub $150 gun.
