Hello, Mr Pie! Welcome to the forum.
I'm not real familiar with the 795, but I'm betting it has a 3/8" dovetail rail on top of the receiver. It should be easy to find rings to fit, just make sure you get the proper size to fit the scope you choose.
As for CA-DOJ.............sheesh, I'm not even sure where you could look that up, and even if you found the proper chapter, verse, paragraph and subsection, it would probably take six lawyers and a Yiddish scribe to interpret what the hotel it actually says. Good luck!
Regarding the bipod, if it clamps on to the barrel itself, avoid it. It will play hell with your barrel harmonics, and therefore your accuracy. If it clamps on to the forward sling stud or the stock, it should be okay.
Hope this helps, and again, welcome to the funny farm loony bin Marlin Forum.
