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

hargieboo: Great review! I love your enthusiasm. I've been thinking about getting a Ruger 77/22 because I want a bolt action 22lr, but my next rifle will be this model, especially considering the price. pickle's had it on sale last week for $159, but not this week. I'll just take my time and wait for their next sale.

SamsonAKAK80: Wow awesome! Thanks for letting me know IT MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD to me , when someone thanks me and tells me I make a difference, ESPECIALLY as you say you bought it thanks to my review, Unbelievable ! Just like the accuracy of the rifle AND ITS BASE MODEL price!!!! *FYI* Savage had been shipping with really decent 3-9x40mm scopes but realized how nice they were and went with the 4x scope.. Keep the rings and base, upgrade when you can- Look for a Nikon ProStaff sale, Trust me!

BurlyBilly: Thanks to your review I'm now a proud owner of this fantastic rifle. I am amazed by the accuracy of this supposed base model. The 4x32 scope that mine came with left something to be desired though.

SamsonAKAK80: Sure, not a problem , hope it helps. If my words are any use or any "status" to you, THIS IS HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.... There are many Savage Mark II models, some even $600 (which have beautiful fancy expensive stocks and heavy, threaded barrels) but this right here, FOR TWO MEASLY HUNDRED, On Sale for $149.99, WITH the Scope (that you can use as long as you need to , THEN upgrade when you find a sale on something you like, having saved up the money) AND Use the rings/mount it came with.

KYRTM360p: Thank you

SamsonAKAK80: I checked on Savage Arms's website, they say 21" ... I did not take a tapemeasure so I will go with their numbers, I didn't think it was more than 20" but whatever. Now just note this is a regular barrel, "sporter" barrel, NOT heavy barrel, NOT bull barrel, NOT anything other than normal . It's basically a regular old entry level rifle, with an entry level beautiful stock, entry level barrel, came with a cheap scope (which I replaced) etc. but it is AMAZING in accuracy and quality!

KYRTM360p: How long is the barrel on this gun?

SamsonAKAK80: Thanks again buddy- it's funny because previously I was 101% content and set with .22LR, I have 3 .22LR rifles, a decent chunk of ammo, and of course could easily add 3-10 more if I had the money...BUT I just saw an AWESOME .17HMR rifle @ pickle's Sporting Goods for like $269, a Savage heavy barreled, scoped combo w/ awesome looking composite stock ... and .17HMR is not cheap but its everywhere available these days.. I was JUST about to buy one a few weeks back and my dog needed a $500 vet trip.
