    Savage bolt actions are awesome. I'd be sure to get the heavy barrel and at least the laminate stock, if not the Tacticool stock. Still plenty light.

    [​IMG]

    Mark II with laminate stock, cut to 16" and suppressor added. Since then I've added a Boyds' Tacticool stock and a Weaver 16x target dot scope. This is a typical 50-yd group with SK Standard Plus ammo.

    I shoot a rimfire match with it: NRA 50 yd smallbore target pushed to 100 yds. Pretty crazy to watch the bullet drop that far.

    i was just looking at the synthetic with blued barrel and accutrigger got qoted about 250 out the door pretty decent for being bolt action. think i should jump on it? pretty reliable guns? any issues with it? plan on throwing a scope on it eventually

    I think I paid $299 from Bass Pro on sale for the laminated stock and bull barrel. The cheap polymer stock is crap. The extra $50 for the heavy barrel and nicer stock is well worth it in my opinion. No issues on my side, with hundreds of rounds down the barrel. The accutrigger is actually a limiter eventually - lots of creep before the break. For hunting it's OK but for targets I find myself asking "break, break, break" and then having to muscle it a bit. I'm considering the $100 Rifle Basix replacement.

    Here's what I have in factory form:

    It's going to string shots more due to the thinner barrel when it heats up, and you'll spend money getting a base/bases later for the scope you're planning for, and that stock isn't going to free-float the barrel, but its your money. If you're shooting squirrels or soda cans, you'll probably never notice. If you're shooting for groups, you'll quickly wish you bought a nicer version. It's your money and decision. Let us know what you end up with.

    yeah, that's pretty much my gun minus the 16" fluted bull barrel and picatinny rail. i think with a 21" barrel though, you are wasting energy due to extra friction. for a .22lr try not to go past 18". i forgot to mention, i think the stock stocks are shiet, they are toy like.

    my marlin has a 21" barrel and i can shoot shotgun shells at 100 yards but then again it probably depends how it was sighted in

    oh yeah, i'm sure it works or they wouldn't have made it that way. but that is just what i've been told by some .22lr enthusiasts at gun shops when i was shopping for my rifle.

    To me it's all about what limits you from gettting to the next level in accuracy, if you want it. That stock is going to flex, and not free-float the barrel. If you're OK with the accuracy you're getting, then there's zero reason for you to change. But all things being equal, a free-floated, properly bedded action in a rigid stock is going to shoot smaller groups than a factory action in a flexible polymer stock.

    the barrel on my stevens is a floating barrel but is that a good thing? i would think the more places its attached to the stock is better

    Absolutely. A floated barrel means no pressure on the barrel, and zero pressure = consistent pressure from shot to shot. Problem with those polymer stocks is when you go to sling up for that shot on the elk, or when you add that bipod for the bench, it's going to flex and probably not be free floated at that point. If you can grab the barrel and the stock at the tip and squeeze them together, that's no good.

    oh ok i see what your saying but i dont think a 22 makes that big of a difference since there isnt much power involved right?

    that deer rifle's stock and the markII's stock are totally different. the markII's stock makes the gun feel like a toy. my gamo air rifle has a better feeling and looking stock than my markII. well i have no idea what you look like maybe your body will adjust to it better than mine did. i'm 5"10" and 145lbs.

    Most 22s feel like toys anyways. My brother has a 10/22 and is happy with it but I just don't like the fact that semi automatics jam up so damn much. Reason why I'm leaning towards a bolt action.
