    Default Savage Bolt action .22 opinions

    I'm wondering if any of you can give me a little review on the Savage Bolt action rimfire rifles. I'd really like to get a Sako Quad, but they are expensive and difficult to come across. So I'm thinking that a Savage may hold me over for a bit.

    So who has them, or has fired one, and what did you think?

    Savage .22s are probably the best bet for an economical but accurate .22, especially with their accu-trigger system. They may not be pretty, but they invariably shoot well.

    I have an old Savage 1919NRA 22 and it would take some serious doing to pry it away from me. I don't know much about the new ones.

    Thanks for the replies. I'm really torn between the bull barrel Savage or a Sako Quad. I really need a .22

    All my Savage .22's have shot well. By well I mean .5-.75 5 shot groups at 50 yards with the right ammo.
    Savages new .22 BTVS with the thumbhole stock is supposed to be very accurate.

    I have a 22 Magnum, Savage Mdl 93 Take-down that I like real well.

    I'd be OK, with the Savage Bull barrel. I seen one at the range just the other day, it had the Accutrigger. The guy didn't shoot much as it was crowded. He just sighted it in, but it was accurate, and had a fine look about it.

    Default Savage BTVS vs BV

    I've heard a lot about Savages being very accurate rifles and I'm looking into buying one in .22 caliber. Are there any big differences between BTVS and BV models, except the thumbhole stock? I've never had one like that. Is it worth extra $$ over the regular stock BV model?

    Personally I like the short (21 inch) bull barrel with the thumbhole stock. Never owned a rifle with the thumbhole so thought I would give it a try. Had my dealer order a left hand BTVS model yesterday. With luck I'll have it by the end of next week.

    Smitty,
    Who did the conversion on your model 93?
    Can you post some photos?
    Thanks

    It wasn't a conversion.
    It came that way from the factory.
    I got it at a Gunshow.
    I saw another one in better shape than mine later. I was tempted to get it too.
    I say "Take Down". There is a beeg bolt head on the bottom, that allows you to turn it with your fingers, and take it out of the stock.
    I got this picture off the Net.

    Snowwolfe: Who is the dealer for them in ER or Anchorage? I couldn't find Savage Mark II .22 with laminate stock in Anchorage or BSG in Eagle River.

    Any small dealer should be happy to order one for you if you ask them. Few dealers stock Savages if you are looking for one on the shelf. Might give Sportsman Warehouse a call, not sure if they stock them or not.
