    Savage Mark II-BV

    I am looking at getting a new 22LR bolt action rifle for squirrel and rabbit hunting next year with my grandson. His Aunt , my oldest daughter, gave him a Ruger 10/22. He wants to start hunting so Grampa needs a new toy.
    I have been looking at the Savage Mark II-BV. Anyone have any experience good or bad with this rifle?

    Not the BV, but the Mark II-F (about their least expensive model). The ones I have experience with were prior to them adding the Accu Trigger to this model. About 4 years ago, I purchased one for my then 8 yr. old grandson for a Christmas present. When we went to the range with it, I was so impressed I went out and got one for myself. I put a trigger kit in mine and it now sports an 8 oz. trigger. For a $100.00 gun (what I paid new at Wal-Mart 4 years ago) plus about $75.00 for the trigger parts which I installed, this is one of the most amazingly accurate guns I've ever owned. At 50 yds., it will hold it's own with my custom Ruger 10/22 I built (over $1000.00) or with my CZ 452 Varmint rifle with a custom trigger job. For price/value and out of the box accuracy, any Savage rifle is hard to beat.

    I've also been looking at a Savage MkII. I want the package deal one with a synthetic stock and scope. Seems like a great deal for a bolt 22.

    Good to hear Hoss. I keep hearing good things. Looks like it might be the one for me.

    IMO, they're great guns. Incredibly accurate for the money and the accutrigger is a huge improvement over the standard trigger system.

    Here's some pics of mine, I've done a bit of work to it.

    I have the Savage Mark II-BTVS. I bought it this summer and love it. The AccuTrigger has a great feel to it. Nothing like buying a brick of ammo and shootin' all day with this one.

    Is that a Mueller scope? That is the way I am going with mine. What scope rings are you using with yours?

    Yes, it's a Mueller APV. I'm very happy with it, it's a lot of scope for the money. I got it from www.eabco.com, just $115 inc. shipping and sunshade.

    The rings are Kwiksite, nothing fancy but considering the lack of recoil I didn't see the need to buy a big money set.

    Cool thanks for the info. I am getting stoked on the idea of some cheap shooting time at the range. Also the thought of some squirrel stew is also inviting.

    For squirell I use a romanian trainer. It has the folding leaf sights and is dead accurate. They can be had for 75-100 bucks. Nothing better than walking the kientucky creek beds popping tree rats!

    The years are catching up with me and my eyes can't focus well enough for open sites and head shots any more. I used an old western field that my Grandfather gave me or a Remington Nylon for many years. Now it's time for a scoped 22 and rediscovering the joy of small game hunting with the next generation.
