    795 more accurate and there's a reason why they call the Rugers the most expensive 200 dollars gun you will ever buy

    Bought my 795 over the 10/22 cause it was half the price and more accurate out of the box.

    I went into Dick's SG. I was looking at getting the 795. My wife and I have a Winchester SXP. Our local armory only allows us to use slugs so the kick was very very painful for both of us. I wanted to be comfortable with shooting hence the shopping for a rimfire rifle. We looked at the 795, Moss 702 and the Savage Mark II but my wife really liked how comfortable the Ruger felt. I still have an interest in the 795 and the Model 60 if just for the wood stock. I had two questions.

    1) Does the 795 come in a wood stock?

    2) How are the Promag clips for the Marlin 795?

    A good write up here on the 10-22 td .


    25 rounds at 50 yards , taking down the rifle and putting it back together after each 5 rounds. This 10-22 looks pretty dang accurate.

    I have both, I think my daughter's North Haven 795 is a gem and the stock sights are a little easier for me to see. It has a synthetic stock, I don't believe you can get a wood one from the factory as of now. There are aftermarket options.
    My 10/22 is an '87 Deluxe Sporter, and it still shoots tight groups. I think the trigger is a little rougher than the Marlin. The Ruger magazines are nicer, IMO. And if you want aftermarket, you can buy almost ANYTHING for it.
    Plain-Jane box stock? Marlin edges it out for the price, but my disclaimer is mine is CT made and not KY.
