My favorite thing about the KSA guns is you get legit walnut stock cut by Amish farmers. Now that's American made! I wish great things for this company. Perhaps they can fill the void left when Freedom Group ruined Marlin.

I wish the 722 had a flush or tube magazine though.

Watching YouTube videos and reading reviews on the rifle people seem to really like the design of the magazine. Although I wouldn't mind a flush fitting mag myself for shooting off bags.

After receiving my 1st KSA 722 Classic I really started to like the new style magazine. It is very easy to load as the mag has light spring pressure when you are feeding ammo into the mag. And when loaded , you just insert it with a simple push or pull to remove. No levers or buttons to fiddle with. When carrying the rifle with a sling or without ,the magazine protrudes so little that it is not a problem. Along withe the fact that it has all smooth edges and round corners so nothing pokes or snags you. In use I prefer it to all other magazines except maybe the Browning T-bolt helix mag. Try it you will like it! It is really slick to use.

What serial number, or date, did the new trigger conversion take place?

My dealer is ready to order the 722 Varmint for me at a steal of a price.
No much discussion here about the rifle.
So, I'll call the factory and find out if the Varmint is shipped with the new trigger.

It looks (or reviews read) like the classic would make a good 22mag.

This image

shows a classic rifle that looks a lot like the current Anschutz silhouette model with that high rollover cheek piece.

That image is a dead ringer of my Classic , it has similar nice wood and it shoots 1 MOA to boot. I bought it sight unseen. Boy was I pleased ,when I opened the box it came in. I like it more and more , the more I use it. I will be getting another , and the next will be the 722 Varmint.

At a local gun store yesterday, I looked at two Keystone 722 rifles with thumbhole stock. I think the price was around $525
Very nice feel to these,

$525 is a bit expensive for the 722 Varmint. I don't mean that the gun isn't worth the $ just that other places are selling them for under $400 last time I looked. As far as $ to performance ratio it seems like these may be the best thing going in .22lr. I'm surprised these aren't much more popular especially given the fact that they are made in the US and Keystone guarantees the same accuracy as Kidd.

You may have seen the package deal that includes a scope and bipod. Somewhere I saw a case was included too. I think mine was $345 delivered to my FFL. Ordered it through Buds. A LGS quoted $369 plus tax.

Hey I just ordered one of the Varmints. I do not understand why those guns are not more well known. I wanted to get a great American made bolt action 22 and did not want to spend the money for a Lithgow, Volquartsen, or Ruger 77/22 for that matter.
I looked at the Savages but they just seemed cheaply made to me. The 722 is a bit of a roll of the dice since I have never seen one but for the money I think it will be great. I am going to call it my Amish Anschutz.

Amish Anschutz. That name will stick. I had my 722V out yesterday shooting Geco Rifle. One box of 50, 5 shot groups at 50 yards and two of the 10 groups were > than 1/2”. Two were around 1/4” and the rest around 3/8”. That isn’t bad for $.04/round ammo. I’ve found that it isn’t too picky on what ammo you shoot either. Wolf Match Target is the most expensive ammo I’ve purchased and quickly realized 1/4” groups at 50 yards were the norm. But at 4x the price, it’s a bit high for my needs.
As for why there aren’t that many out there, that’s a good question. Relatively new company that is concerned more about quality than quantity? Keystone Arms seems to me to be a family oriented company. Controlling growth keeps a stready and happy workforce. I don’t know the answer. I do know my KSA is going to be given to my son and then on to his son.

Talking kSA is alright by me!

A few years ago , I decided to turn my Tupperware stock 1022 into a Target 1022. But since it was my first attempt I didnít want to go whole hog, with a Kidd or Volquartzen, etc, so I went online and ended up back at buds guns and bought some sale items, a KSA bull barrel and a Hogue overmolded stock. My home made target, is one of the best shooters I have. That KSA barrel and chamber are superb. They use micro grooving, like Marlin, and it is my favorite barrel to look ate with a bore light. So if anyone is willing I have a Ruger Precision Rimfire , barely used, that Iíd be happy to trade , even up!
