Troy Landry Rifles from Savage Arms

landry

Savage Arms is now making several Troy Landry rimfire rifles that sport an alligator camouflage. If you are not familiar with Landry, he is one of the personalities in the Swamp People television show on the History channel.

The rifles are all versions of existing products in the Savage Arms catalog. The new guns all have a green camo pattern that mimics the skin of an alligator.

    Oh hey! An article on a bolt action gun. I think I’m going to read it. I’ve never really been a Savage shooter but I wonder what they’re up to?

    Looks at the lede of the article.

    “If you are not familiar with Landry, he is one of the personalities in the Swamp People television show on the History channel.”

    Screw that. A pox upon phony, scripted “reality” television and everyone involved in it. And fie upon Savage for sinking to the lowest common denominator by marketing nonsense like this to its consumers.

    • But it made me laugh.

      BUT, TELEVISION

    • matt_v939

      at least in some instance is one of the less scripted show.
      I mean, take the boat, set the bait, kill the croc.
      The duck show is the worst of them all (probably together with the helicopter flying gunshop guy….

      • superflex

        Gruber was right.

    • Anonymoose

      It’s more entertaining than Ax Men at least.

      • john huscio

        I dunno, Shelby (and to a lesser extent the Chapman crew) keep that show watchable….

    • David Sharpe

      Do you complain about CCI ammo too?

      • Don Ward

        Only the cost and lack of availability. Why? Does CCI have a reality show goon shilling for it?

        • Dan

          Yea the same guy

          • Don Ward

            Curious. Welp. If I can find CCI .22lr at a price or amount that I’m willing to afford, I’ll buy it so long as it doesn’t have his scratch on it. I’m not paying fifty cents or a dollar more for it. Now if CCI discounts the product to pay for the pain and suffering that I have to endure because of the mental anguish I will suffer from being proven a hypocrite, well… that might be a separate issue.

            Lol it happens

    • john huscio

      HERESY! CHOOT HIM!

    • Garret

      But… but now we can pay extra to have the world’s crappiest stock in a different color.

    • Ethan

      While I despise so-called “Reality” TV, I don’t blame Savage. Marketing is marketing.

      • Don Ward

        Marketing is marketing. Although back in the day they’d choose someone who actually did something like Ted Williams to hock items.

        • Ethan

          Agreed. I think today there are so many manufactured “celebrities” that people who actually are incredible are drowned out.

  • iksnilol

    I like the look of the Rascal but these are way too expensive. The reason I like Savage guns is because they are inexpensive while being really accurate and real easy to work on.

    400 USD can buy the regular non-Landry version and a decent scope.

    • Phil Hsueh

      I think you were looking at the wrong gun, the Rascal version retails for $233, or about $70 more versus the non-Landry version.

      • iksnilol

        My point is that you can get the MK2 which is way better than the Rascal for about 200 AKA what you would pay for the Landry version of the Rascal.

        The alligator camo is cool but I doubt it is worth 70 USD, at least it isn’t to me.

        • Phil Hsueh

          I’m curious, Mk2 what or what Mk2? I’m thinking of buying my son an inexpensive .22 some time this year and I was looking at the Rascal which seems to be well reviewed and goes for around $160, if there’s something better for less I’d be very interested in knowing.

          • iksnilol

            The standard MK2 F (synthetic stock) can be had for 200 usd, at least that’s what Gander Mountain has it for. + they also have a 25 USD rebate now. So you can get it for 175 now. Just watch out, on their website they have it listed twice, one is 299 usd and isn’t eligible for rebate while the other 199 and is eligible for rebate. It is the same gun, probably just an advertising error.

            How old is your son? The MK2 is a bit larger than the Rascal + it has a magazine, though you can get a mag block if you want to enjoy the single shot experience.

          • Phil Hsueh

            Thanks for the response, when you said Mk. II I had no idea you meant the Savage. I’ll definitely have to keep that one in mind too now.

            My son is going to be 13 this year and he’s about 5’2″ – 5’3″ right now, not overly tall but definitely on the husky side. The size of the Rascal was actually one of my concerns about getting it for him, I was afraid that he’d outgrow it too quickly although adults are supposedly able to use without too much difficulty. Size and weight wise, he can handle my AR with no problem and it’s a standard M4 style build with a 16″ barrel, while it’s not built to be lightweight it’s not that heavy either.

          • iksnilol

            Then that makes the choice even easier. If he can handle an AR without problems then a .22 bolt action with a 53 cm barrel (21 inch) shouldn’t be a problem. And like I said earlier, you can get a single shot adapter if you want to teach people to shoot on a singleshot.

          • Ethan

            I have an old Savage MkII – it was my first firearm, and I still have it. Excellent rifle. I’ve introduced many a person to shooting using that rifle.

          • javierjuanmanuel

            If he is 13 buy him full size. I would buy a rascal for a 9-10 year old if they are not big.

            I was 5’4 in 6th grade a full size 22 would not have held ne back

          • Dan

            When I was your sons age my parents bought me a mark II i wasnt much bigger than him. Of course then it was a lakefield MK II I still have the gun and will never get rid of it

  • Swampthing

    I kind of hate to say that I like that camo pattern

    • David

      I thought the same thing. Then they had to go and ruin it by putting some “actors” scribble on it. Sorry I can’t buy it now. And wouldn’t want to shoot next to someone that did- I doubt we would have much in common

      • iksnilol

        Well, when they go on sale due to few people buying them… Then people like me will be buying them because we are cheap. Depending on how the signature is put on, it could be removable without much trouble.

        • Sharpei

          Cover up the signature with a black sharpie. I’m sure the small scribble of a signature would blend in nicely once traced with black.

      • matt_V939

        exactly. The rifle on top (model 93) is a nice looking gun, the scribble ruins it.
        Price look high tough.

    • David Sharpe

      I like the pattern, I’m not really a fan of the signature on the stock.

  • Nit Picky Nicky

    I’m seeing a threaded barrel, but I’m not reading about the threaded barrel in the “article.” Richard Johnson, can you update this article/cut-and-paste with some details about the rifles (barrel lengths, twist rate, optics, rails, etc.)?

    The space saved by not discussing politics on this site can be used for details about the guns featured, even in simple press releases.

  • Bill

    Is this the reality show where the people don’t have a whole lotta teeth? And I want a gun signed by one of them?

    I may be elitist, but how about a gun I would use to scare off the guy if he showed up to date my daughter?

    • iksnilol

      I wouldn’t recommend scaring a guy dating your daughter. Will only help her get daddy issues and wind up as a stripper.

      Rather try to be friendly but firm.

  • PY-T

    Most of the guns on the shows are rusted as all heck. You would think that since the guns are used near water, in a swamp, they would at least be stainless.
