Which Model is Best?
I am going to buy a Savage Mark II in .22LR. I am stuck trying to figure out which model i want. My max. price is $375.
The things i really want are:
A place to mount scopes
and a bull barrel would be nice but its so much more expensive!
If someone has suggestions on which model to buy, it will be greatly appreciated!
good luck. I hope you find what you are looking for. I need to get myself another .22 rifle...been drooling over one of the AR look-alikes.
I don't think you are going to find a bull barrel and iron sights.
I recently bought a Mark 2 with the 21" bull barrel for $202, and then put a Nikon Rimfire 3-9x40 on top that I got with rings for right about $175.
The set-up is excellent, and extremely accurate. I was hitting shotgun wads at 50 yards no problem, and the bull barrel maintained the accuracy well over an hour or so of shooting.
I am very happy with my set-up. Really you need to figure out what exactly you want to do with your .22, which will determine what accessories you need (iron sights, bull barrel, threaded barrel). I wanted a super-accurate plinker that I will probably also use for squirrel hunting, and this filled that role.
Make sure you get a model with the accu-trigger, which I don't believe the cheapest models have.
Here is the model I got, for $176, at Bud's. Savage 26700 MKIIF 22LR AT $176.00 SHIPS FREE
