I needed a 22 beater gun, guess what i got?
I have been wanting a 22 LR beater gun to leave at my ranch camp for snakes and rabbits and such. just a walking around gun and something I can lean up against a tree and if it falls over, I won't care
I already have 4 Ruger 10/22s and they are all a little too nice and not what I want for this need
I spotted a stainless 10/22 for $200 with a scope at a pawn shop, I could have bought for about $190 I think, but it just didn't have the cash to spend at the moment and it was gone 3 days later
it didn't take too long to figure out that decent used 10/22s are not easy to find and they cost within $25 of what you can buy a new one for
thats when I remembered the Marlin model 60 but I don't care for a tube mag
not as easy to unload when you are going indoors and back outdoors alot
then I saw the Marlin 795
I have looked at this gun and not given it much attention at all. This was my mistake. For $150 new, you can't beat it if what you are looking for is a light weight, accurate, magazine fed auto loader.
I love this thing and can see myself owning a few more in the near future
what types of things have you guys done to your 795s?
there seems to be alot of people doing all sorts of upgrades
