    I sold my 795 a year ago and missed it. Made a trade and got a marlin 81 bolt action. Can't wait to shoot it.

    It's missing the rear sight. Was shooting it at a 8" plate just to try it out. It's nice and smooth and shoots good. Looks like the rear sight was broken off. Will probably have to put a scope on it.

    Nice rifle. I have an 80G and a Glenfield 25. An 81DL is on my acquire list.

    It's a 81dl. Just did some research a found out it's supposed to have a peep sight. Now to find one for it.

    Finally got my rear peep site. It's a Williams and it works great.

    Awesome...

    I own a Marlin bolt action myself...a Model 80C made in 1960...a real tack driver if I do my part.
