Which bolt action 22 mag?
Looking at a Marlin 25MN, wood stock made in 1998 per Marlin, also a Savage 93F synthetic stock with accu trigger but not sure when made. Any advice on either good bad or otherwise would be greatly appreciated.

No brainer with that binary choice. Marlins are solid, savages are hit and miss. But the 25mn or wait for an 882 or 882SS if you like stainless. rc

Have the RAR; love it; very smooth; accurate as I can be at 100 yds; only problem is, my granddaughter loves it more, so itís actually hers now; I just keep it for her!!

Happy with my RAR and think it is a good buy.

Anything but a Savage or new Marlin. Very happy with my RAR for the price, also very happy with my Anschutz.:D

Marlin. I hear only good things about the 25mn. I have tubefed rifles, they hold more.

Thank you to all that replied, looks like the Marlin is the way to go.

One vote for the Zastava MP22 WMR. I haven't seen any posts with any substantial improvements over the groups I am getting.

I was very happy with my Marlin 783, very accurate. I love my Savage/Anschutz 141m, very accurate and looks great. With scope it weighs right at 5lbs and very easy to handl3 in the woods. If you buy the a marlin try to find an old one but my son's newer ones have been good shooters as well.

My experience with Marlin is that they have excellent barrels but the triggers need help to achieve a decent trigger pull. My experience with Savage is limited. Both Marlin and Savage seemed to have equal loyal followers for many years. For me, the introduction of the Ruger American Rimfire changed the ball game. The Ruger trigger is very good out of the box but is one of the easiest to improve on. Then the Ruger rotary magazine eliminates a magazine hanging out under the stock. All are good companies. Please let us know which way you go.:bthumb:

The only 22 mag I own is a 25MN and it would take a lot to ever talk me out of it. My most accurate rifle is a RAR 17hmr but the 25MN stays right with it. It has a great feel to it and loves the 30 gr Vmax. If you have an opportunity to pick one up at a decent price I wouldn't let the age hold you back....they are great shooters. I have a passion for the older wood guns though.....good luck with your decision.

+1 on the CZ 455 Varmint. I have one of these and a 455 American stainless in 22WMR and both shoot 1/2" at 50 yards with hornady 30 grain vmax.
