Quality of a basic Savage Mark 2



Log in to see fewer ads
My local gun store has a non accu-trigger Savage mark 2 (polymer stock iron sights) new, it is on sale for around 110$ dollars. I have a Marlin Model 60 and have been looking for a good bolt action .22. Are these held to the same build quality as I have heard about the savage mark 2 with the accu-trigger? What accuracy can I expect? The purpose would be plinking and pest control.

Thank you and Also first post so hello from Texas!

For your stated purposes it should be fine, and you can improve the trigger 'some' on the cheap.
Imo, that is a fair good price.

Save money and get the accu trigger! I have the Walmart/dicks special without accu trigger and the trigger is terrible! I ended up buying the accu trigger rifle to replace it. Buy once cry once

Mine is a straight shooter,,,

Mine is a straight shooter,,,
I put a Simmons 3-9x36 on it,,,
I'm holding 1/2" groups at 50 yards.

The Acu-Trigger is not over-rated,,,
It will be an improvement over the standard trigger.

Just know that the trigger on the cheaper rifle isn't bad at all,,,
It's just not as nice as the Acu-Trigger.

You decide if it's worth the extra cost.

I recently purchased the Savage Mark II VR, the VR is the heavy barrel version. It came with no sights and with the Accu-trigger. The trigger feels very nice. $176.00 through Buds Gunshop.

I’ve yet to shoot it though, I put a new Bushnell Rimfire 3-9x36 BDC scope on it. I heard these guns are good shooters.
If I can get 1/2” groups at 50yds like aarondhgraham I’ll be happy!

There used to be a sticky on this site with instructions on the "trigger shim" modification for pre-accutrigger triggers. I did it years ago and have been happy with it. Very easy mod.
The MKII seems to have extraction issues which used to cause me great aggravation.

Sportsmans Guide has a MkII with the 21" heavy barrel with the accutrigger for $142.49 if your a club member & $149.99 if not. They also have a 4 pay plan that they charge 1/4 each month but ship your gun now. Min of $150 so you'd have to add a box of ammo or small item. Code SN353 will save you $10 more. If you link thru Active Junky you'll get a 2% rebate on guns & if you use this link we'll both get a $10 rebate, These with the bull barrel don't have sights.

https://www.activejunky.com/invite/1601749

Active Junky gives 10% rebate from Cabelas, 4% from Brownells & many many more. Last quarter I got $233 back on stuff I was going to buy anyway. Hope this helps!
Savage Mark II FV, Bolt Action, .22LR, 21" Barrel, 5+1 Rounds
Item # WX2-708922

I also have a Marlin 60 that has been retired due to the perchase of a Savage fv-sr. Accutrigger is wonderful. No ejection issues at all. Gota clean it around 250 300 rounds, no prob. Snake thru with some Hoppes and fire away. Im now serching for the TR model this year as I like it so much. Mine was about $235 after the rebate thing. Had to add a scope as the heavey barrel ones sometimes dont come with one.

I have a mark II GY with the wood stock, compact model. I love that rifle as it shoots fantastic, very accurate. I have a bushnell 3-9x40 scope on it with an Apatchee trigger kit. I have a FV-SR also and I don't shoot it as much, but it runs flawless also. You can't go wrong with a Savage rifle.

For.the cost I am a big.fan of.the mark ii. We have several and they shoot well with cci sv. Near MOA. The plastic stocked ones are kind if weak. Small, light, flimsy. But the action and barrel are a great value. I think they would suite your puposes well.
