Hunters and sportsmen testify to the accuracy and performance of Savage rifles.
Few manufacturers have the experience to build quality, strength, and dependability
into the action of a centerfire rifle like Savage Arms. Unsurpassed accuracy,
outstanding performance and unbeatable value make Savage rifles America's choice
in sporting rifles. With standard features like free floating, button rifled
barrels, dual pillar bedded stocks and the revolutionary AccuTrigger, no other
manufacturer offers you a wider variety of options in the most popular calibers
to meet all of your hunting and shooting needs. Whatever the caliber you choose,
Savage rifles has the action to match. And Savage rimfire rifles add more fun
to shooting than almost anything else for the money. From casual plinking to
serious hunting, the versatile line of Savage Model rimfire rifles can handle
Savage A22 in WMR is a decent rifle. It is very accurate, I sighted in at 100 yds.
I've used a variety of ammo from 30 to 45gr and all fire and cycle flawlessly. I like the stock, it fits well and is light weight. The accutrigger breaks crisply and
predictably the same every time and is one of the reasons the gun is so fun to
shoot. I put a Leupold VX-2 3-9 scope with high rings and not only lines up perfectly, it is out of the way to remove bolt, disassemble and clean gun. The rotary mags are a pain, but with practice and a good technique, they load ok and snap in to stay. It's nice to have them flush with bottom of stock, also. - DAVID
You can't go wrong with this rifle or Able ammo. They didn't have the gun in stock but it only took 2 days to get it in, great customer service. The rifle itself is a nice color with a heavy barrel on it. I've shot around 100 rounds through mine so far with no failure to feeds. The bolt is very smooth after you work it in a bit. Make sure you buy a couple more 5 round mags so you don't have to keep reloading it. This rifle also shoots very well. I was shooting baby peaches about the size of a golf ball easily at 70 yards. Once you start shooting this thing you won't want to shoot anything else. I would highly recommend it to anyone. - GARRETT
The most awsome rifle I have ever owned. The heavy barrel and bolt action are of superior quality for such a small caliber gun.
I'm not a hunter any longer but may take a shot now and then with my new toy. If you're looking for a fun rifle to shoot at almost any thing this is the gun of choice. - S. K.
This gun is awesome! All the fun and almost as cheap as a .22, but with high-power rifle accuracy and satisfying report.
I've owned guns most my life and currently have 11 rifles and shotguns. But this is true love. When I want to have fun, target shoot, varmint hunt, or just impress my friends with accuracy, this is the gun.
I can shoot up to 82 yards in the family meadow, and once sighted in, neither I nor my brother-in-law, nor my 9 year old son have missed a shot; literally.
I mounted up a Bushnell Trophy 3x9x40 (worth the extra $ over the Banner; I've got both; shop opticsplanet.com) and can shoot quarter-sized sandstone chunks all day long; no exaggeration.
And the power! Birds and squirrels just plain explode (head shots only if you want anything left to eat). I've shot two coyote from about 40 yards (heart shots). I am determined to take a deer with it as well just to prove it can be done (short range, eye shot).
Only complaint is the magazine latch. Works just fine but is just a chintzy design. On such a cool rifle, it should be a push button release. Totally worth spending for the stainless steel and thumbhole stock. - T. H.
