Default when buying .22's

Always get the best quality you can afford in your budget.

Instead of buying new at reduced quality, maybe shop around and buy used of better quality for the same money.

If you want to add gadgets and up grades etc. the 10/22 has nearly endless aftermarket goodies. They are not the greatest 'tack drivers' out of the box.

The Savage is a GREAT gun for the money. Incredibly accurate as built and suitable for practicing serious marksmanship.

So the answer is, depends on what you are looking to do with it in the end.

My vote is the 10/22 u can make it look mild stock to wicked wild, an they do shoot good right out of the box, a bolt gun is usually more accurate tho. usually

My vote would be with the Mark II. Just pick your style. I think a bolt gun forces a person to slow down and concentrate on accuracy. Other than my single shots, they are my slowest guns to shoot and also the ones that I am most accurate with.

I don't have a 10/22 and don't want one. Have a few other semis that fit the bill for me. I find that when I take the semis out to the range, I put way more ammo down range but not nearly as accurately.

Savage built a reputation on their barrels and accuracy. Also the fact that they are reasonably priced. Most of the time the gun will out-shoot the shooter. The 10-22 does have every option and accessory known to man, so I guess it all depends on what you ultimately want out of the gun. Marlins are inexpensive and tend to out-shoot 10-22's as well, but don't have as many aftermarket goodies.

I went to the range yesterday with my buddy and he was shooting the 10/22 target version and a MarkII BTVS. Both were impressive and fun at 50 yards. Like everyone else said, it just depends on what you want to do. The mark II was more accurate but both shot well.

I went a slightly different route and got a model 93 BTVS (Mark II in .22 mag). I wanted extra range and power in a bolt action and I've got a 10/22 carbine for just spitting out rounds. Each to his own.

I like both of them I'm leaning more toward the mark II as if I bought the 10/22 I may end up upgrading and spending more money then I want. I may end up getting both maybe in time. Thanks for yalls in put

The savage will will shoot way better for less money. Just add scope and good ammo and have with most of them a under 3/4" 50 yard rifle, maybe half that.. Rugers are fun but can become a money pit after shooting around better factory rifles.. To many things to change to upgradethem. I have both and both do the job about equal.

The Savage is a good gun and probably doesn’t need any work. There is probably no aftermarket parts support either. The 10/22 may not be as accurate as the Savage right from the box, but if you like to tinker, you can have a lot of fun designing your own version and building it using all kinds of aftermarket parts. When you get done, it will probably outshoot the Savage.
