    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.

    That sounds more right, I'm going off what Midway has listed.

    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:

    http://www.diproductsinc.com/Detail.aspx?PROD=112014&CAT=3603

    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.

    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........:D

    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...

    I say this from experience or more accurately... lack thereof. :eek:

    Did you guys just conveniently overlook this part while tripping all over yourself to get offended???

    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.


    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.


    Because they cost half as much.


    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.


    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.


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


    Obviously.

    Craig, if I throw $20.00 in your P/Pal account right now, will you promise me you'll go over to your favorite watering hole and knock back a couple of beers? And maybe a cigar while you're at it?.....:D

    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.

    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.



    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:

    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.

    "Delusional" is a word you use later, that describes this statement perfectly.

    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.


    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
    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.


    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?


    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.


    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.


    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.


    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.


    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.


    Exactly, so how does it make one shoot worse? How does a modification done by a rifle's owner a slight against the rifle???
