    Does anyone make a Weaver or Picatinny rail for scope mounting on the Marlin 795?
    --
    I'm aware of the DIP Picatinny rail but how does it fit on that skinny dovetail receiver that's on the 795? I see that it says, "Minor fitting may be required"...what does that mean? :confused: It also says to mount the rail with part number towards the muzzle - that's beginning to sound like some kind of friction fit on the rifle's dovetail. (Not to mention the $30 bucks for that rail would cost more than the 3-9x40 Simmons scope I'm trying to put on there!) :(

    Anybody know of a more economical Weaver Rail mount that's available?

    Thanks guys!
    Juker - thanks but I already have the scope. I picked it up "used" (it was virtually brand new - still had the plastic sleeve/container it came in) for $20. And I have a set of low rings - but they're the Weaver style rings with the cross bar in them. So I figured if I could find a rail (either Picatinny or Weaver) then that would raise my "low" rings up enough to have the scope's objective (40mm) clear the rear iron sight on the 795.

    Todd51 - so with the above explaination, you see why I was looking for just a rail. However, with the price on the mounting you linked to, I may just have to abondon the rings I've got and get that thing. As you said, ya can't go wrong with that price! :)

    Glad I found this. I was about to buy a scope for mine.
