Need some help.

We just picked up a Marlin 795 for my oldest. Rifle came with one mag. The shop didn't have magazines for sale. The major online sites (Midway & CTD) have 'em on backorder.

I did a search on Google Shopping and came up with mags that say that they are for bolt actions and "POST 88 self-loaders [10 rounds]". Then you got POST 96 self-loaders [7 rounds].

Which ones will work with a 10 round Marlin 795???

You want Marlin part #G4071350-01 (10 round)

Or

Part #G4070460-01 (7 round)

Both are nickel plated and of the same design. Marlin sells the 10 rounders with the 795s and the 7 rounders with the Papoose (which is the same action from what I understand). Both magazines will work in a 795.

Thanks for the info guys.

BTW, yes - the Marlin 795 is fast becoming an inexpensive alternative to the Ruger 10/22, especially with the $25 rebate from Marlin. I also like the fact that Shooter's Ridge has 25 round mags for 'em. Although they are usually not available at most online sites or brick & mortars. Midway supposedly will have them later this month.

I am considering one of these at some point. I like the 10/22, but I like the Marlin's all steel construction. The triggerguard is made of steel unlike the new 10/22's plastic. When I've handled them they just seemed solid. I'm thinking of adding a folder to one at some point.

Our $138.00 795 is far and away the most fun & accurate rifle we have. Swapped out the crappy blade rear sight and spent 12 bucks at Numrich's for the adjustable. Only needed one little click to the right after the first 5 rounds, a drop of bright yellow paint on the front sight and she was good to go. Toss in some CCI Mini's and you can almost get bored shooting golf balls at 100 feet.


(I really hope that this gun makes more and more 10/22 guys begin to second guess their pimped out semi-accurate $900.00+ blingy-blings).....:D

The 7 rounders DO NOT WORK in the Marlin 795. I have 3 of the 7 rounders for my Marlin 25N, and while the 7 & 10 rounders work in the 25N, that is not the case with the 795.

Only the 10 rounders work in the 795.

Hello friends and neghbors// Love my 795, bought it on sale plus the Remington rebate on the 4th of July 2009.

The mag for my Papoose or 70P will work in the 795.
I have found some mag packages that list the 70P but not the 795, you might want to ask for the 70P instead.

Sorry to tell you, but my 795, bought in September of 2010, has a plastic triggerguard. You can get aftermarket aluminum trigger guards here:

It's about half the price of the whole rifle, but that's because the rifle is so cheap, not because the trigger guard is expensive. ;)

That sucks! The last one I saw was steel, so it must have been before the switch. I understand the need to be economical, but I'm not a fan of cheap.

The 795 is hundred dollar gun, no more, no less. Cheaply made it is however a decent bang for the buck. It really is a pretty good starter rifle, pretty good plinker, accurate enough for hunting. The sights suck and many are out off line. Throw a set of Tech Sights on it as well as a sling and it makes a pretty good little kick around gun. The plastic stock is hollow so you can stash stuff inside if so inclined. I have one and see quite a few of them on the line at Appleseed. It is not as reliable as the 10/22 either because of the mags or maybe because the people shooting them are all newbies and don't know their rifles. Mine is not as reliable as any of my 10/22s. Still a decent bang for the buck.

I've got about 2,000 rounds thru mine. No misfires, always ejects empties fine, no failures to feed.

Never jams as long as you put a drop or 2 of breakfree on the bolt/receiver contact area before shoot for the day. They like a little lube! Great rifle for the money. I like how light they are, much more pleasant to tote around than a wood stock 10/22.

The Marlin models 795 and 60 have never had a steel triggerguard. They are very good, accurate and reliable rifles for the money but it is wishful thinking bordering on delusion to believe they are better than the Ruger 10/22 at half the price.

Gee Craig you're an expert on everything and everyone else is so dumb.
No, I just have a thorough experience with BOTH and look at them objectively. You come off as a Marlin fanboy who has somehow convinced himself that his hundred dollar model 60 shoots as well as an Anschutz.


The fact that Marlins are more accurate, more durable and aren't made of more plastic than steel probably has nothing to do with how the Ruger is so much better.
They both have aluminum receivers, they both have plastic triggerguards (although the Marlin is cheap plastic whereas the Ruger is high strength polymer) and they both have steel barrels.


There are well over twice as many Marlin 60's in existence than there are 10/22's.
Because they cost half as much.


I have never once seen any Ruger rimfire outshoot a Marlin rimfire.
Accuracy is not the only measure of a rifle. However, it is the only factor that the Marlin will ever hold over the Ruger. The Ruger is still a better made, better designed and better executed rifle. It also has the uncanny ability to become anything you want it to be.


Put another six hundred bucks into it.....
Just another statement by the delusional. You put $600 into a 10/22 and you leave the hundred dollar plinkers far behind. Now you're exceeding the accuracy of some very well established boltguns.


Q - How do you get a $230 Ruger 10/22 to shoot worst than it did out of the box?

A - Spend another $300 on it and make it all tacti-cool...
And how exactly does making one "tacticool" result in it shooting worse?

I'm a borderline Ruger fanboy. I absolutely love Rugers. That said, I just plain like Marlin RIFLES better including the 765 over the 10/22. My buddy has a Ruger, and I just can't seem to hit as well with it as I can with my 795. That could be simply be because I learned on a Marlin 60. I really like the Ruger...just not as much at any price.

No, I just have a thorough experience with BOTH and look at them objectively. You come off as a Marlin fanboy who has somehow convinced himself that his hundred dollar model 60 shoots as well as an Anschutz.

Fact of the matter is that a $150 Marlin will shoot darn near the sameas an Anschutz. Most shooters will not have the skills to tell the difference. Ruger 10/22's can... given enough love, attention, and money.




They both have aluminum receivers, they both have plastic triggerguards (although the Marlin is cheap plastic whereas the Ruger is high strength polymer) and they both have steel barrels.
Funny - both break the plastic parts at about the same rate. And I'd say this is a new low - arguing on behalf of an out-of-the-box 10/22. :neener:


Accuracy is not the only measure of a rifle. However, it is the only factor that the Marlin will ever hold over the Ruger.
Reliability?
Durability?
Ability to "eat" more types of ammo without failure?
No need to sink additional hundreds into it to keep it running, or make it accurate?
Seems to me the ONLY advantage the 10/22 has is the ability to be modified into anything you want it to be.


The Ruger is still a better made, better designed and better executed rifle.
"Delusional" is a word you use later, that describes this statement perfectly.


Just another statement by the delusional. You put $600 into a 10/22 and you leave the hundred dollar plinkers far behind. Now you're exceeding the accuracy of some very well established boltguns.

Again, talk about a delusional statement.
$600+ Rugers are about on par with Marlins as far as accuracy and reliability. I will admit the $600+ Rugers look "cooler." But function is about even. And the Marlin achieves the same level of function with bulk-grade ammo and CCI (which I consider to be "mid-grade" ammo), whereas most of the expensive Rugers need the match grade ammo to function to the ability you are referring to.



And how exactly does making one "tacticool" result in it shooting worse?

Many of the "tacticool" mods do nothing for accuracy. Some actually have a negative effect. These are known issues. I'd have thought someone with a thorough experience with BOTH would know this. :rolleyes:

And Usagi is a neophyte shooter masquerading as an expert who thinks he knows better how to run the Appleseed program. He only comes out of the woodwork for threads where Marlin autos are not touted as the be-all, end-all of the rimfire world or discussions of Appleseed.


Fact of the matter is that a $150 Marlin will shoot darn near the same as an Anschutz.
Yes, keep drinking that Kool Aid. Thankfully, before too long, benchrest shooters will all realize the err of their ways and trade in their $1400 Anschutz rifles for a crate of 795's. I must find out what kind of magic pixie dust Marlin is sprinkling their barrels with. Gotta be something good to make a $100 rifle shoot as well as one with a barrel that costs twice as much. How many Anschutz rifles have you tested?


Funny - both break the plastic parts at about the same rate. And I'd say this is a new low - arguing on behalf of an out-of-the-box 10/22.
So was it not silly to deride the Ruger for its polymer triggerguard, in comparing it to a Marlin? Ruger uses the same polymer they use in pistol frames. Marlin uses the same cheap plastic they always used.


Reliability?
Durability?
Ability to "eat" more types of ammo without failure?
No need to sink additional hundreds into it to keep it running, or make it accurate?
Seems to me the ONLY advantage the 10/22 has is the ability to be modified into anything you want it to be.
Do you really think the ONE 10/22 you owned that was not reliable is typical of the breed? Seriously, last I checked, there were over 40 variations of the 10/22 in production and they sell every one they make. Do you really think they would sell millions of them if they were garbage??? Do you really think that everybody who buys one turns around and puts several hundred dollars into it??? Yes, delusional.


$600+ Rugers are about on par with Marlins as far as accuracy and reliability.
And how many $600 Rugers have you built or tested? I would love to see a hundred dollar Marlin that shoots 1/4"@50yds. Because mine certainly doesn't.


And the Marlin achieves the same level of function with bulk-grade ammo and CCI (which I consider to be "mid-grade" ammo), whereas most of the expensive Rugers need the match grade ammo to function to the ability you are referring to.
How do you figure that? If I remember correctly, I shot Federal bulk at my first and second Appleseed. I'll shoot Remington Golden Bullets at my third. I'm still trying to figure out where all this money gets "dumped to make it more reliable". Because the only reliability part is the extractor and it is usually replaced so that unfired rounds can be extracted from the tighter Bentz chamber.


"Delusional" is a word you use later, that describes this statement perfectly.
The Ruger is a simpler design. Of higher quality. Better materials. It is easier to work on, easier to clean, easier to disassemble and reassemble and can be modified to take on any form imaginable with common hand tools.


Many of the "tacticool" mods do nothing for accuracy.
Exactly, so how does it make one shoot worse? How does a modification done by a rifle's owner a slight against the rifle???

Good gawd Craig. Please stop being so belligerent and refer to others who have differing opinions than you as being neophytes or "obviously <sic> lack experience" or worst. BTW, my reference to tacticool 10/22 and less accuracy was an attempt at self-deprecating humor. I did spend around $300 on black crap for one of my 10/22's and all it did was make it look bad-*** and throw accuracy out the window.

As many on this forum will know from my posts, I'm one of those people who believes in the "2 is one and 1 is none" philosophy. Although I am not a big bore rifle guy, I do like 22LR rifles and I have 4 Ruger 10/22's and a BUNCH of Marlin 60's, a 81DL, a 25N, and now a 795. I can state as a matter of fact that every one of the Marlins out shoot the Ruger 10/22's whether stock or modified. I haven't tested it out the 795 yet, but I'm pretty certain that it will out shoot the stock 10/22.

I've read many of your posts, and believe it or not - I respect much of your knowledge, but whenever the subject of 10/22's come up..."good gawd" is all I can say. :confused:

Good point, Allusion - for real!
Seriously, Craig, try switching to decaf or something. :)

It would help you to state simply that you are a Ruger guy. I'm a Marlin guy. We both own both. We've both shot several models of each. State why and be done with it, man.

You notice that myself, and many other Marlin fanboys will state the facts, state our observations and be done with it. If I harbored ill will or something, it would be easy to point out three or four serious flaws in your argument and tie them to a personal attack - but that kind of stuff is not polite, does not help other readers of the post, and is certainly against the rules here. After all, the name of this place is "The High Road."

Also, when you make the personal attacks, you do no favors for your arguments and opinions of Rugers, Appleseed, or whatever else you are in favor of.

Sorry to be off topic, but I can't stand to see perfectly good threads derailed with such antic and drivel.

I'll say that being able to constantly and consistently shoot small potatoes at 100 yards with my Model 60 and a $30 Simmons scope is worth more to me than any $1400 .22LR. I can consistently shoot quarter size groups or less @ 100 yards. This is with Winchester .22 LR X-Pert big box ammo.
I have buddies who have spent $600 on 10/22s only to be out shot by me every time at the range.
You oughta hear the excuses from them. It is just embarrassing..

I just picked a 795 from Dicks Sporting Goods for 130.00 less than a week ago. I went back to the store and they had it on sale for 99.00. They gave me the difference in price and after they handed me the money they said they made a mistake and that the 99.00 price was after the rebate. With the mistake and rebate I got the rifle for 75.00. It is a great rifle at that price.

Steve9305
August 12, 2011, 01:06 PM
Jeff56, I was going to do the same thing at Dicks. After I recevied the difference in price I was going to go back to the gun counter to buy another 795. I had a coupon for $20 off a hundred dollar purchase, with no firearm exclusion wording. I was going to buy the second 795 for my Grandfather, use the coupon and the rebate, have the rebate sent to his house, total price would have been $55 just like yours. However right after they handed me the money they informed me of the mistake and the gig was up.

HMMMMMM lets see. I have not shot a 795 but have owned and shot 60's along with 10/22. Marlin's you open the box load and shoot. No problem. Ruger's open the box, replace barrel, trigger, hammer, bolt and sights or add scope and then claim it will out shoot a marlin. Marlin wins hands down because you don't need a huge aftermarket to keep on going like a Ruger does.

Well, you guys let me know when you want to stop taking potshots from a distance and actually have an in-depth discussion pertaining to all the details of your 10/22 builds. I hear a lot of background noise but nothing of any substance.

I find it very interesting that YOU cast the first stone, calling out the 10/22 shooters with this: "I really hope that this gun makes more and more 10/22 guys begin to second guess their pimped out semi-accurate $900.00+ blingy-blings" and "Q). How do you get a $230.00 Ruger 10/22 to shoot better than a hundred dollar Marlin 795? A). Put another six hundred bucks into it...." and then sidestep every serious comment following with snide nonsense.

So do you have anything to add to the actual discussion or are you just a troll??? Maybe you can start by explaining how a hundred dollar 795 somehow magically gets around what would be the commonly accepted recipe for an accurate rifle. Namely, match grade barrels with match chambers (both of which cost money), crisp light triggers (not cheap either) and a stable platform.

The reason Marlin does so well with their much cheaper barrels is the Micro Groove technique they invented a long time ago.
I totally concede on the point that out of the box, Marlins tend to shoot more accurate than Rugers and always have. What I take issue with, because it's never presented with details of ANY kind, is the notion that a Ruger with an aftermarket barrel will only shoot "as good", or "decent" compared to the Marlin. Yes, if you put a cheap barrel on the Ruger, you will probably not see any improvement. These are marketed to folks who think that just because it's a "heavy barrel" that it will automatically shoot better. You simply can't lump all aftermarket barrels together and I take this personally because I know what a good barrel will do but they don't cost $79.99. I didn't just fall off the turnip truck and don't do this stuff because it looks cool. You put a Clark, KIDD, Shilen or Lilja barrel on a Ruger and it will outshoot most boltguns.

See my point? This is why I think it is so ludicrous to say that a Ruger you dump $600 into will only shoot "just as good" as a $100 Marlin. Which is to say that factory Marlin barrels are "just as good" as Shilen or Lilja. That a spongy, 6lb Marlin trigger is "just as good" as a crisp, all CNC machined 14oz two stage KIDD trigger. That a factory Marlin bolt is "just as good" as one that has been tuned and trued, with minimum headspace. I'd wager that 99% of those folks making those comments have never even been in the same room as a 10/22 with a good barrel. Let alone actually shot or owned one. Yes, I'm calling out El Mariachi, okiewita40, Onward Allusion and Usagi.

Ruger doesn't make bad barrels, they just cut sloppy chambers. As I've said many times before, a factory Ruger barrel that has been set back, rechambered and recrowned will yield a substantial improvement. In all honesty, it will shoot at least as good as those cheap aftermarket barrels, if not better.

CraigC
August 13, 2011, 11:19 PM
You'll always have to spend more to get a semi-auto to shoot well compared to a boltgun. Figure on spending as much as double. So my $800 10/22 does shoot better than my Remington 541T, Savage MKII and CZ 452. What would be considered $400 boltguns, or at least the Remington was when it was new. They will almost never shoot as well as a boltgun of equal cost but they can be amazingly accurate.
