Looking for opinions of these rifles. Has anyone on here ever got their hands on one or used one???

I've got a BTVLS on order (same one as below)...I will be putting a Bushnell Elite 4200 4-16x40 (with S.F.) on it...undecided yet whether to ditch the factory mounts and put on a E.G.W. Tactical Picatinny Rail...wait and see.

been shooting one for a little over a year now, long range remington and winchester subsonic-- out to 200 yds. you will need lots of moa in the mount if the scope doesn't have it. savage is coming out with one in a "tactical  trainer", but I'm not sure the comb is high enough-- good time for a Karsten.

Specific to this forum... the new MkII TR and TRR should be of interest to those of you who wanted a more tactical style stock on your trainer rifle - looks like Savage was listening.

MK II TR


MK II TRR



And then for something completely different (and a little fruity looking, but still kinda cool):

Savage mod. tutta frutta. ---don't know-- I really like the regular thumbhole stock. Its probably the best improvement, as I think the action and barrel have been around along time. Got the gun on the recommendation of Mithran, an OT member and contributer. I'm not sure the fiberglass/plastic one would be stiff enough, also the above model would be very front end heavy. Biggest downfall is the magazines, had to go through four of the 10 rd'ers with lip adjustment to get 2 working correctly. With close to 3000 rds of subsonic its still going strong.

Savages seem to be catching on big time over here in Australia.
 
While we're talking about problems...i've heard of two of them (not enough to cause me to rethink getting one) with the Savage Mark 2 / 93 / 17 series of rimfire rifles but they aren't really the rifles fault.
 
One is magazine extraction problems...supposedly caused by the lip at the top of the magazine not being bent right. Second one is when the rifle won't eject a spent shell...supposedly caused by A) fouling B) certain types of ammo and C) cycling the rifles action too slowly.
 
I've heard a couple of others but these seem to be just one offs.
 
In the latest edition (December 2009) of the 'Australian Shooter' magazine (pictured right) a bloke by the name of Thomas Tabor (from the U.S.A.) reviews two Savage rimfires. I haven't got my copy yet but I went to a local library yesterday and quickly read the article. He reviews two rifles, one a 17 series (.17 HMR) and one a 93 series (.22 Mag), both of them have the laminated thumbhole stock (like the one i'm getting). When I get the magazine i'll scan the article and post it on here.
 
I've been told by my dealer that my Mark 2 BTVLS is coming in the next few days. Can't wait see it.
 
Cheers.

most 22's have mag problems, one one sort or another, mostly its a timing issue, when does the lips release the round to be pushed in by the bolt, and it the round is too high it will hit the back of the empty on the ejection and knock it off the extractor, sometimes getting everything orchestrated is half the battle (win. mod 52).

Is it true that Savage tests and supplies a test target with all Savage Mark 2s, 93s and 17s rimfires (and their Stevens branded cousins)???

didn't get one with mine, wouldn't trust it anyway,any rimfire will depend the ammo used, at it headspaces on the rim, thickness,primer mix, firing pin strike, play to much in the final result.

I bought a MK II a couple of years ago used for a bit under $300.  It had the Royal Jacaranda thumbhole laminate stock and a cheap BSA scope on it (which I promptly broke dialing in elevation).
 
All I have done is bed it into the stock and cut a coil off of the accutrigger spring and that rifle is a little laser with the ammo it likes (Wolf MT, Wolf ME, Eley yellow box stuff, SK Standard...etc).  It will hold sub 1/4" at 25 and sub 1/2" at 50 all day long with that ammo.  At 100 the wind starts to take some more play into it and the best I can do is keep it around an inch, maybe a bit larger.
 
On to the pics, here is the rifle.
 
Here are four 5-shot groups with the Wolf stuff at 25yds, three of the groups are uner .2
 
Here is the SK stuff at 25yds (left row) and 50yds (right row)

Now thats what I call a post ! Excellent
 
And nice shooting too! Thunbs Up
 
Savages (both RF's and CF's) are starting to catch on big time over here in Australia. With accuracy like that, their RF's could maybe one day knock off BRNO/CZ as Australias biggest selling rimfire brand.
