Marlin 795 Autoload Rifle
Sharpshooter, excellent budget rifle
If I could only have one 22 rifle, this would most likely be my selection. Don't get me wrong, I love my 10-22 and Ruger has one of the best warranties in the business, however, just bang for the buck as a consideration, the Marlin wins.
- If you are more concerned with accuracy, the marlin wins. It is simply more accurate than a 10-22 is out of the box (dime size grouping at 50 yards vs quarter size with the 10-22, and the group size barely grows out to 100 yards#
- If you are trying to teach children to shoot, the Marlin wins. it is only 4.5 lbs, and seems a bit smaller and easier for a youth to shoulder.
For less than $150 bucks, this really is one of the best values in the gun world, and I would recommend one to every gun cabinet.
If your desire is to deck out the gun with extras, #cool tactical stocks etc.#, then you should probably look at the Ruger, however, there are some very practical upgrades for this rifle that make it significantly better.
- DI Products Trigger and Guard
- Tech Sights #AR style sighting system#
- Promag hi capacity magazines #even a 100 round drum!)

Not bad at all
I mounted a inexpensive Pursuit scope ($60) on this gun and was very please with accuracy once I got it sighted in properly. At 50 yrds I can usually can keep it in a 2 inch circle. Considering I am not a real great long gun shot this is very acceptable. Only rare occasions of ejection failures and misfires. They also seem to be more prevalent on Remington Ammo for me. CCI is all but flawless in it, with Winchester being acceptable also. For $160 I just don't see how you can go wrong with this gun as a plinker or small varmint gun.

I was looking for an inexpensive rifle for a first gun for my son. The initial purchase met that requirement. In addition, the ammo is inexpensive which provides for many hours at the range. I had a scope put on making it very accurate.
