New B22 FVSR in 22lr. Caldwell fixed bipod, BSA Sweet 22 6-18x40 scope, Leupold rings. Target was at 25 yards shooting CCI SV. All groups are 5 shots except the windows on the RV. Those were single shots. The trigger is amazing, the bolt is very workable (still a bit stiff unlocking), and comfortable to shoot. The stock is very slick if you're sweating, but has a nice comb. The rotary mag is a little foreign to me. Never had one before. Seems load just ok. Easy to insert into the stock and comes out real easy. Pretty happy with its first time out today. Let me know if the pics are working or not, I've been having trouble.

The photo links work fine. Nice looking rifle and a good shooter too!

I put 200 rounds of Fed Automatch that i had laying around down the tube to sight it in and screw around with the settings. New it was gonna be a shooter from the start even with that ammo. Switched to CCI SV and started to think this thing is on par with my CZ455. The trigger is better than my stock trigger on the 455. I need the shim and spring kit for it.

Savage B22 coned Breech

I just now saw a review of the B22 on Youtube. I'm interested in knowing how Savage has solved the problem of damaging the coned breech by Dry-firing.
OR HAVE THEY?

They have not solved that problem! This is a no dry fire gun. When I'm done for the day, I open the bolt, hold the trigger back, and close the bolt. Does not allow the bolt to cock so there is no need to dry fire it. I didn't know about coned breeches when I took the gun out of the box and I of course dry fired it to feel the trigger. I then noticed a ver light faint mark on the breech from the firing pin. Luckily it didn't damage the breach enough to cause a problem.

Apachee Trigger

Use the search to find Apachee and get that kit. You will be shocked senseless at how much nicer the trigger is after using the kit and it takes all of about 1/2 hour to put it in.

Ooops!

I have the kit in a Mark 2 and not the B22. I got excited and missed that. Maybe there is an Apachee kit for the B22.

Is the apache that much better than the stock trigger? I really like the trigger in my B22, but if it could be better im all in. In my earlier post i was referring to needing a Yo Dave kit for my CZ. The B22 trigger i think is better than the cz's.

So you can't dryfire this type of breech, even with snapcaps?

Very few .22's can be dry fired. They call it rimfire for a reason.
The firing pin hits the rim of the cartridge; if no rim, it hits the breech.
Yes, .22LR snap caps, but you will dent them.
You can also use #6 plastic wall anchors (yellow).
You'll have to hand feed them, no mag.

Thanks for the tip on the wall anchors. I'll have to pick up some of those.

I was hoping someone would have a review of this gun. I'd love to see some more pics. I'm very curious how the fit and finish of this gun is.

Fit and finish is good. Its a sort of parkerized finish that seems very durable. The stock has no sharp edges and is very stiff, not much flex at all. There is a weird liner between the heavy barrel and the stock that seems removable. Im not touching it, its lights out out of the box. Purchased a second mag for $20. I don't think thats out of line. The stock does seem to be very slick when youre a little sweaty trying to get a cheek weld. The positioning of the grip is much more vertical than before and much more comfortable. Thread protector comes on and off easily and after 300 or so rounds did not back itself off from firing.

Well that's good to hear. I've been hearing that Savage has stepped up their game in terms of fit and finish with the B22 vs their older Mk II guns.

The grip angle is a big selling point for me so I'm happy to hear it accomplishes that too.
