I bought my wife a MKII FV in 17M2 and my oldest grandson a MKII FVT. Both had the plastic stocks and the drop is wrong for a scope or the target sights. I replaced the stock on my wifes rifle and I need to get my hands on the boys rifle to do his stock. Meanwhile his stock has an add on cheek piece. The savage rifles are very accurate. Boyd's makes stocks for the Savage MKII/93E that are reasonable. I bought unfinished as I had to shorten the stock for my wife. Right now the BSA 4x16x40 AO scope is avaliable from SWFA for $50+ship and the Sweet 22 for $40+ ship. Changing the stock requires a new trigger guard and screws available from savage. You could use an add on cheek piece or you could just order a MKII BVT and be done with it. The 17M2 or the target confiuration was not available in the BVT. With the expensive target ammo the BVT will shoot under 1/4" at 50 yds. That is not to say the shooter can, at least not this shooter anymore. Most scopes for 22LR are parallaxed at 50 yds or have an adjustable objective lens. Most rifle scopes are parallaxed at 100 yds.
