Very nice! I've been eyeing the similar Mark II TR as a target gun/range toy.

Beest,

Now that is one fine looking rifle! As you stated the only thing I see is the height of the scope from the normal cheek weld position. But as you stated, if you can find a good Stock Pad that will solve that. (goose necking as it is called) You will need to do that to get the maximum consistent and accuracy out of the rifle. I am not saying it will not shoot good as it is. But the Stock Pad will no doubt improve the consistency and accuracy. (Spoken from experience!) No doubt the rifle will shoot sub MOAs at 100. Thanks for showing us the pictures and as I said what a nice piece!

Thanks sniper, I plan on doing the cheek piece too. I'm not sure if I'll make my own or try and find a decent piece.

Bad ass little mag ha ha. Now I just need to go shoot it! I picked it up today and had the gun shop put the flash hider on it just to give it that finished off look. I'm impressed, stock does feel cheap but I expected that. Bolt is smooth as butter, gun is a little heavy but I'm a big boy, I'm not worried about sissy stuff like weight it will probably help keeping it dead on accurate.
Sweet! I just got my threaded barrel back in the mail yesterday. Not just for looks -- though an AR flash hider does look cool. Now my Savage is almost complete. I have a Yukon 1.5 X 42mm NV scope I will mount later (for varmints & such) & I really like that cheek-piece, someone made out of Kydex. As Borat would say: How Much?
I have an AIM 3-9 X illuminated Mil-Dot reticle scope on it now. Enjoy the classic bathroom floor photography! ;-)

I know it's a rail, not a scope mount, but in case
anyone is looking for a good rail, I just got my scope rail in the mail 3 days ago,
but couldn't mount it until my barrel came back from the machine shop.

The best RAIL, IMHO, is EGW (Evolution Gun Works).
American Made. Out of Quakertown PA.
About $55 shipped IIRC. I got mine with the optional Torx Screws.

If you have a newer Mark II like me, get the drilled
Rail for a 93 (.22 WMR) because the new Savage
Mark II .22 LRs have a longer ejection port area:
1 & 5/8" instead of 1 & 1/2"

It's a picatinny rail, and excellent in every way.

I got this cheek pad for my FV-SR. It helps greatly with cheek weld and getting the eye in line with the scope.

Thanks for the info ordered one for my mark ii


While on savage's has any body had trouble with your clip coming apart? About fifty round into my mark my clip came apart. A couple quick tac welds fixed it up. I love the gun but not the clip design.

You're welcome. I can't wait to get & install mine.

I'm glad you mentioned the magazine problem. I will order a spare or two since I don't have any kind of welder. Hopefully, not all of them will break.
