In the Savage Arms 64 vs Marlin 795 accuracy test we determined that both semi-automatic rifles are very
accurate and too close to tell a major difference.
Marlin 795 has a 10rd single stacked nickle magazine. Savage 64 a 10rd single stacked black magazine. The Savage 64 has a stiff magazine release.
No Cheek rest on the synthetic Savage 64 stock.
We like the sights a bit better on the Savage 64. The Savage front bead sight seemed easier to see compared to the Marlin 795 front blade sight.
Marlin 795 stock trigger pull was 6 lbs 9 oz and the Savage 64 stock trigger pull was 5 lbs 5 oz. Both have triggers that are kind of heavy but there are
