Heya, finally found my way over from ShotgunWorld... I'm shopping for a .22 rifle for my gf's 13 year old daughter. The local gun shop as a Savage bolt-action for $150 or so and it looks about the right size to teach her to shoot with. Handled the gun, it seems fairly well put together if rather feathery. (I'm 6'2 and large framed, though, so all .22's feel "whippy" to me, :wink: ) Anyone used/shot these, if so, what's your opinion of one?

Yes, I have a Mark II Savage 22 with Laminated stock and heavy barrel and it is my favorite to shoot. If I am going to be shooting against my buddies I will always take the Mark II. It is a great shooter and wood recommend it to anyone.

I asked Jay if I could become a moderator of this sub-forum about a month ago I think. I have been doing a lot of rimfire shooting lately.

I got a mark II for my daughter a few months ago. We were bunny hunting with my old savage 24 .22/410. It was much to heavy for her to hold so santa entered with her own .22. What a tack driver! Blue on a composite stock, open sights, grooved for scope, older model. Not impressed with the trigger but is still on the mark and an all around good rifle for the price. The daughter is shooting it well and her interest keeps up. The stock is a bit shorter and the weight sure helps. Still shooting open sights and I am very happy.
