This is my first thread here and I hope it's not something that has been covered before, but I bought my Marlin 795 rifle about 6 months ago because everything I had heard about these rifles was great. The main thing I had heard was how accurate they are straight out of the box, but when I tried shooting mine it was hitting a couple feet low and way to the right from 100 yards. I thought these guns were test fired at the factory. So, I thought maybe not knowing any better that a 22lr couldn't shoot that far without dropping really bad, but I moved in to 25 yards and started adjusting the sights. I had to go to the highest setting on the elevation and all the way to the left on the windage to get it shooting on target. I'm wondering if maybe I shouldn't send it back to Marlin to see if there is something wrong with it. At this point I have no room for modifying my windage or elevation anymore. I will attach a picture tomorrow during the day time of the rear sight so you can see what I'm talking about, but this concerns me. I couldn't even find anyone else having any accuracy problems so what do you guys think. Should I send it back to Marlin to see if something is wrong?
