Question Mark II- F



Log in to see fewer ads
What is the feelings on the Mark II - F at Wal Mart that sells for $117. Friend of mine bought one, but has not fired it yet. If it is not too bad of a gun for that price I may consider buying myself one to keep in my pickup for snake repellant. It looked good, but I was just thinking of the price, the old saying you get what you pay for. Any info here.

it's a good gun. it's the same exact rifle as all other savage MKII F's except that Walmart gets them without the accutrigger and sells them for much less.

I personally really like the accutrigger of the more expensive models (around $200) and I would not buy one without. But in the end, it comes down to personal preference... whether or not you want the accutrigger. if you don't care about the fancy trigger, then you can't beat an accurate, reliable rifle for $117

I bought one at Walmart. The trigger on mine was fine without accutrigger. The gun would not chamber a round. Savage paid shipping both ways and fixed it. So Savage stands behind their product.

I'd say thats a fair price. What are similar Marlins and other brands going for at Wal-Mart?

In my opinion, the Accutrigger is worth the extra money. On the other hand, if you get the $120 rifle and don't like the trigger, you can put another $70-$80 into a RifleBasix kit for it and have the next best thing to an Accutrigger.

I have the G model(same rifle but with a wood stock and accu-trigger). It is more my wifes rifle than mine because she likes the weight of it. I think it's a fine little rifle, and in all honesty, for what you are wanting the F might be better. For a truck gun I wouldn't really care so much about the trigger(without accu isn't bad at all), and with the synthetic stock would be great for behind the seat or something of that sort. I'd go for it.

I've had mine for 2 years now, 3 shot groups in a dime at 50 yards. Home made rest with lawn bricks and rolled up towel, hold the back with support hand. 3-7X BSA scope.

Today, I finally shot my MKII-F that I mentioned earlier in this thread. The trigger feels about 3 to 3.5 pounds. I have a Nikon Pro Staff 4X rimfire scope on it. Sighted in easily. Shoots better than it's price. It's a keeper.

Ok then, I think I will go and buy it. I was really thinking hard about the 10/22 Wally world carried in stainless, but they cost over $100 more then does the savage II.

Do you guys think the savage II will hold up as long as the 10/22? I know people who have had the 10/22 since the 1960's and the 10/22's are still shooting like day one.

Yeah, run a dry patch or boresnake through it now and then, keep the action lubed and the outside lightly oiled, and it'll last longer than you or I will.

I went to walmart to inspect it closer and noticed that the bolt came out every time, even with the trigger untouched. We were trying to figure out why but could not figure it out? I already started another thread about it but I guess that this gun is a dud then.

Did the striker on the rear of the bolt go to the "uncocked" position when you closed the bolt?

Hmmm, sorry for being ignorant, but what is the striker? There is something called the guide pin on the back of the bolt that have 2 different positions, but we had no clue what the other position was because you could not reinsert the bolt into the gun without it in just the one position. He didn't have to pull the trigger back to put the bolt back into the gun either. Is the gun just messed up? It kind of catches when you pull the bolt back and you know where its suppose to stop, but you can keep on pulling it out past that point with just the slightest most pressure and it comes completely out of the gun. Should I just skip this gun? Did they mess it up putting it together at wally world, or does it come put together? If I go back to look again, what is the procedure, in steps, to make sure the gun is not working. What should I do 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc...

Thanks for the help guys!
