Which savage rifle?



Log in to see fewer ads
I have been thinking about buying another 22lr rifle, this time a Savage. Savage is the only brand I do not own a rifle in rimfire and was wondering if any Savage owners that may own more than one from the family of Savage rimfire rifles would kindly recommend which model they found to be the most accurate. Thank you for reading my thread. Price not an issue.

I have a few Savages , FV SR ,TRR SR , BV in 22LR rimfire. And a 93 in WMR. All std 5 round steel mags, ie no bmags. Ive also hasd a few Rascals pass thru my hands. All of them are exceptionally accurate for the price.

The TRR is the most accurate, unless i swap the FV out its tupperware stock into its Boyd Tacticool, aka Pro Varmint, then its slightly better. Then the BV , also in a boyds / factory laminate sporter stock. I think the medium contour fluted barrels on the FV and TRR are better than the heavy BV bull barrel.

The WMR, pencil barrel is a Good shooter too, but no match grade ammo for it. And its in tupperware.

Accuracy wise , imho, on par or just short of a CZ. Finish wise way short. Better than my Ruger bolt actions, but again way short on finish when compared to a 77. About par with the RAR. The RAR which is prettier on the outside, and has a way superior magazine is crippled by the piece of pot metal called “ the magazine latch assembly, which is really just a disconnected receiver lower, whose movement inside the stock inletting is a bummer. And on some 77syou can swap barrels like on a 1022, and improve the trigger and if necessary the bolt for a few bucks.


The Rascals , pencil barrel but short and stiff ,are Amazingly Accurate. Just have to deal with the stigma of using a childs gun. The shame goes away after your first group is the size of a dime. I buy them whenever I see them used or on sale, set them up with a scope and bipod, and invariably give them away to children. Sans scope , cause they come with a peep sight, tat kids love.

So would i buy another Savage. Yep, am looking at one right now!

I waited to get a new-gen Sav 22 until they came out with the Accutrigger on 'em, ended up with an early blued MkII BTV short action in 22lr. Within the first 15 shots out of it I got under a dime for five con. shots (and 3 of those cut a cloverleaf) off the back deck rail 'casual rest' at 50yd. Basically all I did was slap on a spare scope, bore sight it and give it a go. I didnt dial it in to poa, all I wanted to do was make it run and hit the paper, go for group and decide if it had potential or not. Wasnt premium match ammo either but was most likely the mid-grade std velo I used for my best ammo at the time.
Keeper!
Wish I could say I can 'every day, all day long' do as well now, lol, but I dont doubt it is a shooter iffn I can be.

I have been very happy with my MkII GVL in 17m2 and my BTVLSS in 22lr. I haven't had issues with any of the OEM magazines that some seem to have. The GVL is the older version without the Accu-trigger while the BTVLSS does have it.

We have purchased multiples of the MK II-FVT rifles for our 4H 3-Position shooters. An excellent rifle with the included heavy barrel and peep sights. One of our shooters recently used one to win a regional match, beating out a couple of Anschutz, although I believe it was the quality of the shooter that made the difference.

I like my Mark II FV project rifle. Even with the spare 3-9x32 Simmons I had lying around, itís a great shooter. In the near future itís getting either a Vortex Crossfire, or Tract 22 fire, and a Boydís stock.

I just picked up my first Savage 23A yesterday, close to 90 years old, moved the sights a little and fixed a few small things posted about it yesterday.

I have a savage btvs. For money spent flawlessly rifle. Very consistent thus far. Almost boring at 50 yards. Quarter size groups with cci standard. Diddle some with accu trigger a few years ago. 1.5 # works for me. Mueller apv 4.5-14. Great entry level rifle. Hasn't disappointed.

Similar to mine in blue, with decent SV it typically does nickel sized at 50yd, well benched, a few dime sized braggers. Scope with fine wires and lots of power helped (20X right now).

I was wondering: Do you plan to buy a new gun or an older one? The reason I ask is that some of the older ones are REALLY well built & accurate as all get out. And although you MAY pay a little more for an older Savage I really believe that you will not be able to beat the craftsmanship OR the accuracy. Just something to think about....FredT

I just recently purchased a Savage Mark 2 FV in .22. I've never owned a .22 that is so accurate, and highly recommend it.
