Default Savage 93's

Thinking about getting a Savage 93 in .22wmr . They are pretty inexpensive right now. Don't own any Savages so I don't have any experience with them....just Marlin and Henry's and of course Ruger.

Those of you that own them....good quality? Accurate?

I have the 93F and it is very accurate. I'm not good enough to use the full potential of the rifle but it hits exactly where I aim it. My only complaint is that the stock on mine cracked after I dropped it from 2 1/2 feet do I had to buy a new one. Overall I love it it was my first gun so it is special to me.

i have a M93r17, which is the 17 HMR version. pretty dang accurate, and very well made. my biggest fault i could find was the short LOP with the original stock. i changed mine out to a Boyd's laminated. made a worl of difference in shooting it. IMO, well worth the money. get just the rifle and put a good scope on it and you're good to go.

I've had a 93GL for several years,it's a great 22 magnum.It loves to shoot the Remington 33gr V-Max bullets.
It shoots other ammo pretty good,but prefers the Remington.

Savage 93 in .17 HMR. Closest thing I have had to a death ray. Shoots like a laser.

Of course, that was BEFORE that horrible boating accident.

I have a Savage 93R17 FVSS. It's topped off with a Bushnell Legend 4.5-14x44mm.

It's worked out to be a very nice combination.

I have a 93R that Savage re-barelled into a 22 MAG. Very nice gun, heavy. (It's the varmint version.) Make sure you get one with the Accutrigger.
