Pete Sessa: After watching your video, and a couple others, I "pulled the trigger" and purchased the Savage MK ll GXP from pickle's yesterday. Complete with scope and 100 rounds of ammo, I was out the door for 208.00 total. My girlfriend and myself liked the reviews and look of this rifle. We are looking forward to participating in another activity together. It seems to fit us nicely. We have set up a tutor/lesson to become better familiarized with it's operation, safety, limitations, ammo and care. (We are fortunate to have someone who will go the farm, where we shoot, to help us.) I think you guys got a better deal than myself, but after 5 years the difference will only be about 1.00 a month, if you spread the cost out. (I probably will never be a good competitive shopper) I was wondering though......The other target rifles seem to have a "lighter trigger." I don't think that will affect us rookies very much, but is it possible to adjust this mechanism?
Doc Holliday: Got the same rifle combo around Thanksgiving for $140 at pickle's. My second Mark II. Savage rifles are awesome
Josh Carter: does it have accutrigger?
Andrea Robison: just got mine today at pickles and it was $164.00
Ethan Orr: hey i have the same gun i bought at pickles this past weekend but i haven't had a chance to shoot it yet. mine has darker wood than yours does. i was wondering if it shoots cheap ammo pretty well. like enough to hit a bird at say 40 yards. i had a youth savage single shot that would shoot anything you put in it very well. i was wondering if this would do the same. great video man. thumbs up!
Ethan Orr: And does it shoot the federal bulk ammo well? Like the 525 box? I had a Henry 22lr but it wouldn't shoot anything good but cci. It would cut holes with that at 40 yards but couldn't hit a 2inch Orange dot at 40 yards with any other ammo
Ethan Orr: Great looking gun! I just bought one at pickles too. Mine has darker wood tho. I haven't had a chance to shoot it at anything yet. I got mine for 199 plus tax with a $25 rebate. Great review too. Best one I've seen on this gun!
rogersb /: Great looking gun! I'm thinking of getting one in a few weeks. Also check your smoke detector batteries, it chirps when they are low.
Richard Fabbri: Looks good!!!
Dan Akers: Thank you for posting. I'm looking for an inexpensive 22LR for my 12 year old son that is already involved in Navy League and wants to improve his accuracy with practice. His specs were simple: 22LR, Bolt action, scope
IRONTOSS: nice review, im actually looking for my 1st 22LR rifle and was deciding between Ruger 10/22 and Browning BL 22, but the value for this Savage rifle seems like to good to pass up so I just have to decide on bolt action or semi-auto?... thanks again!
aburnz: Thanks for putting up this review. Found it quite informative. Thanks again for your time. Cheers from Aus.
TheNisgaa: CZ has always made rifles that have stayed with me while the 2 savages I let go easily. Best $-value ratio goes to CZ by far in my books. Good review though!
Dick Shear: Thank you - I like having the safety on all the time , but won't leave the hammer back all the time either
SamsonAKAK80: Yup...if it isn't all then both bolt-action rifles I have (this .22LR MKII and .308 R700 AAC-SD) are that way. I don't want to say it's a design flaw, but it's a characteristic... I cannot think of it now but some modern popular rifle specifically advertises its safety being always avail. I guess its because a safety is NOT an On/Off switch and if you are able to work the safety you generally will always know it's "loaded". Best guess there lol.
Dick Shear: Is it common for bolt action rifle's that you can only move the safety after the hammer is roostered ? I cannot move the safety to the on position after I shoot until I move the bolt to rooster the hammer.
SamsonAKAK80: Hey thanks for watching- let me say a few things... 1st off you always want AS BEST glass as you can.. it's very common to spend at least as much and sometimes much much more on your scope as the rifle. You will NEVER be upset you have "too good" of a scope. BUY ONCE CRY ONCE in optics especially. I would run from that BSA ... for $150-200 you are right in the Nikon ProStaff range like I have on this rifle. VERY NICE. Or check sales..MidwayUSA is doing Weaver sales right now, SWFA also.
kevin joby: yo, I was contemplating on wether it would be better to save up for a good scope like this or to get a good basic BSA scope. The scope costs about 150$ which is ahbout 3/4ths of what the rifle actually was and Im still not sure.
hargieboo: It's on sale this week, so I bought one yesterday for $159.98.
SamsonAKAK80: Hey Hargiboo just wanted to say THANK YOU for such a compliment. It is the absolute reason I do this, because of helping people and thanks I get in return- ABSOLUTELY All the difference. I hope you got the rifle or are still looking, because IT WILL BE WORTH IT. The Savage Mark II is amazing, and the higher end Mark IIs are pieces of art, mini sniper rifles in .22LR. I got mine from pickle's as I mentioned, nd just asked for the sale price- $149.99 3yr ago, so 159 is still a great deal! ENJOY
