The Marlin Model 795 is a .22 LR semi-automatic rifle produced by Remington Remington arms Arms of Mayfield, Kentucky formally by Marlin Firearms Company of North Haven, Connecticut. Major features include micro-groove barrel, a cross-bolt safety, black synthetic stock, and 10 round box magazine. It is similar to the Marlin 60, with slight barrel and action differences due to the magazine differences.
The Marlin Model 795 features an 18 inch barrel with 1:16 inch twist rate micro-groove rifling (16 grooves). It has adjustable open rear and ramp front sight, but as an alternative to iron sights, the receiver is grooved for a scope mount. It has an automatic "last-shot" bolt hold-open feature, a manual bolt hold-open and a cross-bolt safety. It uses a 10 round nickel plated box magazine.
The Marlin 795 is well suited for small game hunting. It can also be used for low cost but serious target practice for competition or hunting practice, or just plinking (informal target practice). It is ideal for young shooters since it is small and light-weight.
