    Thinking of getting a .22 rifle this coming gun show. Choosing between the 795 around 12,500 pesos, the 795 stainless steel 18,000 pesos and a model 60 also 18,000 pesos.

    Is the stainless steel model worth it or is the base model a better buy?
    The model 60 is basically the same gun as the 785 but it uses a 14 round, tubular mag instead of the 10 round mag for the 795.

    Which is the better buy?

    Budget wise, i'de go for the one in blue finish (12,500). If you got extra, go for the stainless model (either of the two). Less maintenance bro! Will last longer, than the blued one.... and nice one to pass on to your younger generations, if you will... JMHO.

    true, i bought a SS model myself and gave it to my son as his 1st FA. we zeroed it (scope mounted) at 30 yrds and got very good groups. the marlin 795 is value for money. :wavey:

    Heard they are accurate since they have micro-grooved barrels.

    You are right sir isuzu... and I tried it personally out of curiosity. I shot 5 groups per 30, 40 and 50 meters (range limitation). It grouped a consistent 1/16" diameter using a Bushnell 3-10 X 30 mil-dot reticle riflescope. Even my 10 year old son's first shot had same groupings. We enjoyed it a lot!

    Do those prices include licensing or is it for the unit only?

    IMHO, i'll take the tubular anytime.

    As the years pass by, extra mags will be hard to find if your planning to pass it on.... Like my Bolt-action Remington 511 Scoremaster its a vintage rifle from my great grandpa. The rifle was produced introduced in 1939, discontinued in 1963. Good thing there is still 1 mag left. Have an extra bolt assembly given by an old friend. Its still in good condition, shoots well, tight groupings. But aesthetically its not that pretty looking hunting rifle anymore. It served a lot of hunting sessions.

    With a tubular, no need to worry about mags. Just load and shoot. Regular maintenance cleaning is still best if you want your rifle to last long.

    had a 60SB before and it was a real tack driver. but it was around 10k only, for the price i think the 795 is a better deal among your choices.

    I have a marlin 795 with blue finish and it's value for money. So far, 1000 rds, 1 stovepipe only using cheap armscor solid point high vel ammo. Very accurate. Am using a 1 x 40 red dot scope and getting good groups given that the red dot is about 6 moa. It's easier to unload the mag type but it's a pain to carry the rifle slung. Ang talim nung mag. My friend has a similar rifle. My secretary has the SS type 795. Same performance pero mas durable malamang ang SS. They have cheap 4-12x 40 scopes installed. Good groupings. Even my secretary shoots good groups. Go for the Marlin 795.
