New .22 Rifle - Savage MKII

So I went out shopping this weekend for a nice Ruger MKII or MKIII pistol to make into a target shooter with the scope and such. While looking at the other Rugers, I thought it'd be fun to pick up a Ruger 10/22 instead. I called around looking and found a good price on the 10/22 and went to go check it out but came across this little beast while I was there.

It's a Savage Arms MKII and it had all the features I was going to put into a custom 10/22 already installed! This particular version has a floating bull barrel, walnut stock with the thumb through hole, scope (Bushnell 3-9x), adjustable weight "accu-trigger" (can change the trigger pull from 6-8 oz up to 8-10 lbs), and actually felt perfect in my hands compared to the plastic 10/22s that are out there now. If anyone's looked at the 10/22's lately, the stock and the trigger guard are actually plastic. Doesn't exactly have the best feel from the little bit that I held them this weekend. The only feature that I sort of compromised with was the semi-auto, but since I'm not shooting squirrels or rabbits (until I can get a suppressor that's silent while shooting out my 3rd story window) where I'd have to chamber rounds quickly, it didn't really bother me to go with the bolt action. I picked up a second magazine for it since it only came with a 5 rd one from the factory. I'm planning on going to the range tomorrow (Midwest Sporting something on Palatine Rd) and putting a couple hundred rounds through it and see how it does. I'm really excited about seeing how it compares to the reviews I've been reading online which have been excellent!

Anyways, some quick pictures on the kitchen table after cleaning it out and properly lubricating...

I love the trigger on the new Savages. I have the same on my 22-250. Nice looking rifle.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Thanks guys! I'm really questioning why I even hesitated at the store on getting this over the 10/22. It's feels so much more solid in my hands and love the feel of the real wooden stock. Tonight should be fun at the range, I'm really looking forward to it!

Nice rifle, can I ask how much $$$? This might be great for my 12 yr old.

Agree with the take on the recent 10/22 Rugers. Not impressed with the cost cutting measures taken the last (few?) years. My first rifle was a 10/22 back in 1986 or so and the difference is striking. Looked at a few at Gander in Joliet a few weeks back and put them right back in the rack.

PM Sent.

I kept hearing how the 10/22 was the way to go and the perfect base to build a supurb rifle and after seeing them brand new I just wasn't impressed at all. The older ones with the real wooden stock looked great, but anyone who has an older one doesn't want to part with it or has done a ton of modifications to it and boosts the price way up.

Nice rife! I'm in the market for one myself doing research now. I'll be sure to check this out and look for feedback from your range visit.

Yeah, I found the same thing. If you hunt you can find a good older one. A Friend of mine picked up a mildly upgraded one for $175, looks much like your Savage in fact...I was quite pissed because that's what I was looking for and I totally missed out on it. I'm going to build a second 10/22 come spring. One is going to remain iron sights, the other is going to be scoped.

It looks like you have a nice rifle! Lets go shootin!

Oh, if you want a decent step up in ammo from the cheap bulk stuff, find yourself some Federal 510 (might say Champion or Lightning, but the model of the ammo is 510). Then a nice step up from that is the Wolf Match Target. Both of those brands have run very well in every .22LR I've shot with this year. The Federal being good plinking rounds, and the Wolf a good budget "target" round.

I mentioned in your Appleseed thread that I was picking something up that would work well for that style of shooting. This is what I was hinting at, and I'd love to give the long range stuff a shot (no pun intended). If you're doing another one this year, I might try to fit it into my schedule, but looks like spring would be a good time to do it. Let me know whenever you want to go, I'd be in!

Being a bolt action, Appleseed is going to be more of a challenge for you because the tests are timed! Beyond that, I'm positive that rifle will not be holding you back from learning how to shoot and making rifleman!

Go get yourself a GI sling, and look up some videos on how to actually use a sling to shoot. That will give you a head start. Everything after that is just practice.

I'm not sure I'll be doing anymore Appleseeds this year...I'm pretty broke, but I may make one more shooting day after the Zombie shoot. Assuming I can find a range that's still open!

The only question I really had was about the sights. You said that the scope was only allowed if it was deemed "necessary". Well this gun didn't come with iron sights, so does that kinda make the scope a necessity and make it allowed?

Hmm, don't stress about it. It's not a hard-cold rule. They are pretty laid back at this one. It's very "shoot what ya brought" and learning how to shoot is more important then what you shoot. Though the goal is really to learn to shoot with iron sights out to 400 yards. If a scoped rifle is what you have, use it, and learn it.

I have a friend (who bailed on the last Appleseed after getting *really* sunburned the first day), who just picked up some little Marlin .22 for $129, then put $69 "Tech Sights" on it, just for the next Appleseed. Everything he learns on that Marlin with translate directly to his bigger guns.

It's not *what* you shoot, but learning how to shoot it.

I was going to get the same model in .17hmr.

You will get a 10/22 too. Once you see how much fun this is you will want something the is semi-auto. Then you will start to modify it and it will turn into something it completely wasn't from the beginning.

I have a 10/22 addiction and so does Eric.

Two questions...

1) What kind of bipod is that? Is it one you'd recommend?

2)What's the blue around the trigger guard?

A Harris Bipod I like it others don't.


That is an extended magazine release so I can do it with my shooting hand.

for what? That ammo is way expensive compared to .22
Hunting small game or varmints? go with .204 instead.

Quick review after last night at the range:

I was able to put about 150 or so rounds through it last night down at the range. I shot it from a standing position, leaned over with elbows on the table ledge, and then sitting with the clip as my front support to try to get an idea of what felt good. First thing I noticed is that I've never shot a long gun with earmuff style hearing protection on and kept hitting the one ear on the stock. That kinda sucks, might have to use the little plugs or figure out how to do something differently with how I wear them. Anyways, on to the gun...

I was told when I purchased it that the guy would have the gun pretty much dialed in to 100 yards, but after a couple clips realized that it's not just me missing the bouncing target but the scope was just thrown on and not really adjusted. I spent the rest of the evening trying to dial it in, but still might take another 50 or so rounds to get it where I want it. I have a feeling that after I get that scope dialed in, this thing will be VERY accurate. I was able to get about half dollar size groups at 25 yards on a bouncing target by the end of the night. I can guarantee it's the shooter making the wide patterns and not the gun. Overall, I'd say not too bad for my first time ever with a .22 and a scope that's not set right. There was almost no kick from the gun, scope hardly moved with each shot, and was surprisingly quiet. I think I might make the trigger a little lighter as the crossheirs would start to shake a little bit on me as I pulled the trigger but still felt really good.

I easily could have shot my entire box of 500 rds but I had a couple other's with me who 1) only had one 1-1.5 boxes of expensive .40 ammo 2) the other was getting bored shooting his .22 handgun (no FOID so we didn't know what the rule was on shooting other guns). I think I'll have to go back by myself sometime just to get the scope totally zeroed in and see how tight I can get the patterns with this thing. It's so much fun to shoot! For those who were considering picking one of these up, feel free to hit me up if there's anything you were wondering about.
