I like the detachable mag on the 795. Maybe it is just me, but I hate loading tube feeders. Buy a few extra mags and keep them all full, it seems like I spend less time loading and more time shooting. jmo
At least as of a couple of years ago when I bought my model 60, the differences between the base model plain ol' vanilla model 60 like what I bought and the base model plain ol' model 795 were:
> Stock material -- the 60 has a stained hardwood stock, the 795 has a polymer stock.
> Magazine -- the 60 has a tubular magazine, the 795 has a detachable box magazine.
> Barrel length -- the 60 has a 20" barrel, the 795 has a 19" barrel.
I, for one, got started with .22lr autoloaders with an old Stevens model 87A* (Yeah, the old "Gillie") which was tube mag fed like the model 60. So, tube mags just don't bother me, for that matter I prefer them. I got a couple of SpeeDLoaders which go a long ways towards taking away the hassle of loading a .22 tube feeder. Almost as easy to load as a box mag, but nothing to forget to bring, lose or damage by dropping.
*it was like this one, except that it had a cheap-o Tasco scope on it, and it said Stevens instead of Springfield:
