My son and I took each took a Marlin 795 to our first Appleseed and they worked great. I didn't notice any time lag due to mag changes. Very accurate rifle. I mounted some air-rifle scopes (Swift 4 - 12 power variables) on each. We only could stay the first day, but I shot Rifleman on my first test and my son came very close.
Nothing wrong with the 795's.
