    These are really great rifles. For the price point.

    Advantages of a non-10/22 semi-auto .22 LR? Anyone?

    Bueller?

    • iksnilol

      Some of us like an inexpensive and accurate .22. The 10/22 is neither in stock form.

      • David Sharpe

        The 10/22 is very accurate actually. Sure it’s a little more, but you get what you pay for.

        Not to say Savage is crap, but I like Rugers better.

        • TFB Reader

          Every comparison of entry-level 22LR rifles that I’ve seen ranks the 10/22 near the bottom of the pack for accuracy out of the box. Try this recent one:

          I have no experience with the Savage 64, but the Marlin and Remington will out shoot the 10/22.

          • iksnilol

            Wasn’t surprised by the test since I saw similar things from others. Ruger 10/22s are sold more for the tinkering aspect and because of fame than because they are good guns.

        • iksnilol

          Accuracy is medium (2-3 MOA at 100 meters) with a stock 10/22. Sure you can get it really accurate but that costs a lot.

          Cheaper and better to just get a Marlin 60/795 or Savage 64 if you want an accurate plinker.

      The advantage is that once the politicians ignore the First Amendment and use some
      portion of some law to make the Washington Redskins change their name and logo,
      Savage Arms will be next. Then the Savage .22 auto will be a collector’s item – at least until they come to confiscate it as a hate crime. It will probably take another decade before they ignore the Second Amendment and come for your Ruger. But in a very short time they will both be worthless as there will be no .22 ammo. Wake up.

    So, are the bolt action rifles not available in .22lr? I need a .22lr bolt action rifle.

      Check out the Savage MK II FV-SR. Looks exactly like what is pictured in this article. Should be exactly what you’re looking for.

  • Michael

    I have the .22 bolt gun. Great rifle even without a suppressor.
    Folding stock would be fun.

  • spencer60

    Best bang for the buck in a suppressed bolt-gun. Only thing I don’t like is the 10-round mag digs into your forearm if you don’t hold it exactly right.

  • Dan C

    I love my MkII FV-SR. I put it into a Boyds Tacticool stock, and it is a tack driver. By far the best 22 bolt gun for the money. The Savage semi-auto would not be my first choice due to the magazine capacity.

  • David Sharpe

    They have had threaded barrel rifles for a few years….

  • Boots

    I have had my Savage FV-SR for a couple of years now. Cool little rifle. Haven’t had a chance to hunt with it yet but, its almost unfair with a Gemtech Alpine and Nikon 3-9 scope on top. Too much fun !!!

  • Michael

    How about making it in pistol calibers. 16 inch bolt gun with threaded barrel in 38 special or 45 acp.
