For an inexpensive .22 this rifle is a marvel. Very accurate too (at least up to 75 meters for lack of a longer bay in Marikina). I installed an 1 x 40 Optima red dot scope and zeroed it at 50 meters. The red dot is about 6 moa and the groupings (10 rounds per group) at 50 meters were about 3 to 4 inches (with 3 or three strays per group - not always). Not too bad I think. Trigger is a little heavy but I don't want to tinker with it yet. All in all, a nice gun.
hi father, finally installed my bipods (per your directive, ha3) and yes the 795 is a sweet shooting rifle (mine is SS by the way), and very reliable and accurate!
