Default Savage MK II F 22 Rimfire

Anyone buy a savage 22 rimfire lately? Santa may need to pick up a .22 this year, and the savages look pretty good for the money. Wonder how well they work.

Thanks

I've never shot a Savage before and I am sure they are great rifles. But have you looked at the Marlin brand. My Marlin Model 60 .22 Long Rifle is a fun gun to shoot. I love that gun. Holds 14 rounds in the magazine and it's a semi-auto. But it also depends upon what you are looking for. Good luck Buddy!

I agree, the Marlin .22 and .22 Mags are great guns, I had one of their Bolt Action .22 Mags awhile back and it was a great little gun.

The marlin and savage bolt action rimfires are near identical in looks feel and performance, price as well. I own a 17 hmr savage heavy barrel and used to have a .22 in the same model without the heavy barrel. My 17 is great and the .22 was pretty decent. Both required a trigger job out of the box to be nice, but so will a marlin. Of course the newer savages come with the a accutrigger so that is a plus.

I will agree the marlin model 60 semi auto is a great gun for the money. I have owned a few of them as well over the years. One was my first .22. Another decent gun to look at in the 200 dollar range is the Henry lever action .22. I had one of them a few years ago and it was a great gun for the money. Probably one of the most accurate .22's I have owned out of the box. Very smooth action as well, trigger wasn't the greatest though, but acceptable for plinking and small game hunting. Simular to a H&R or NEF if you have ever fired one.

The plain jane savage rimfires are not the prettiest rifles on the rack, but they shoot well, especially for the price.

I've had a Savage MK II BV for about 2 months now, & I'm really happy with it. The trigger is wonderful, & I like that the gun is really heavy for a .22: it's great for practicing my offhand, kneeling, & prone shooting because it's nearly the same weight as my .30-06. Oh yeah, it seems to shoot some pretty tight groups, too! FWIW, this is my 1st Savage, & I'll definitely consider another.

I bought my son a MK II F last christmas. .22lr with a black synthetic stock. Great little bolt action ! Light enough that a kid won't get tired toting it in the woods or to the range. I think I paid just under $100 at Walmart for it. he loves it, has taken a few squirrels and is now pestering me for a scope. The only thing with the base model is that it's not drilled and tapped for a scope base,and to get it done will cost more than the rifle itself. Check that out if you're thinking scope later on.

Itook a closer look atmy son'sMKII F (at the suggestion of others on another thread) and it has a grooved receiver that will accept 3/8 tip off mounts. Bought a set at Walmart and mounted an old Weaver scope I had on it. Shoots like a champ. Disregard the tapping and drilling I mentioned earlier. I like this little bolt action so much, I'm getting myself one for Christmas and giving the 10/22 a rest for awhile. There's just something about a bolt action rifle that speaks to me, " Mac, shoot me, shoot me". Squirrel season is upon us in NW Florida and the little limbrats better beware.
