[quote=Biohazurd;173509]Was glancing around at the guns at walmart the other day and saw a interesting looking Bolt .22 which would be the Savage Mark II F. It listed for only $127.00, and ive been looking for a bolt .22 to plink around with. The thing is i dont believe that this particular gun has the well known Accu-trigger. What im trying to ask is how is the non accu-trigger model Mark II F In terms of trigger quality and weight? Also what type of scope mounts will this model accept

I picked up one from a pawn shop for $200 with a 3x9x40 mm Redhead scope already mounted. No accutrigger, but that baby is crisper than a fresh potatoe chip!

I bought one from walmart. With no accu-trigger. It has an alright trigger pull, fairly crisp. The iron sights are not that great, I was shooting high right at 25 yards. I put a scope on it, but it has the .22 style scope rail one it. I think it may also be called a dovetail rail. I have a problem with the scope moving slightly over time at the range. I would get it zeroed it then later that evening I started to shoot low. I noticed the scope mounts move about 2-3mm, but enough to loose your zero. But a little bit of J-B weld and that fixed the problem, made a slight ridge on the front so the scope rail can rest upon it and not move forward. I have good luck with it shooting 2-3 in. groups at 100 yards, and a couple times I got 1-1.5 in. groups at 100 yards. It's not a bad rifle for less than 150 bucks. The better Mark II rifles(non walmart) that have the accu-trigger, I believe comes with a weaver style scope rail. But not a bad rifle for your money.

The Savage Mark II F is an excellent rifle. I would suggest spending the extra money on Accu-trigger. Cabela's has them on sale with a cheap scope for $199

I gots me one of the mk2 btv's and it shoots just fine. I don't think the accutrigger is any big deal. They still need a "trigger" job. It's supposed to to 3 lbs pull but my mk 2 or my 25 lvt won't go to 3. 3 1/2 is as good as they get. I'd like the extra 1/2 pound less pull on both of mine. Then they would be about right.

for $127, i dont think you'll go wrong. i've got a heavy barreled savage 64fv that i've had for about 7 years now and still shoots great. i've shot at least 5000 rounds through it too.

check savages website, they show what scope bases fit that rifle. i have the savage m93 in 17hmr without the accutrigger, and it works great IMO. for $127, i don't think you can go wrong, these are great little rifles and very accurate. i say go for it.

I think Walmart and Dicks were the only 2 places where you could even buy the MkII's w/o the AccuTrigger. It's well worth a few extra bucks to get the AT though. And you can make some adjustments to them to make them pull lighter. But I haven't changed mine and it shoots great actually. The trigger could be better but if you grew up with 6-7 lb. triggers anything under 4 lbs. seems great. I've shot some great groups with mine but it's picky about ammo and not as consistent as it could be. Still for the money they're very hard to beat. Marlin has rifles that essentially have a direct copy of the AT now. Their XT series of rifles look and work just like the AT's except they pull a little lighter. I'd like to get to shoot one to see how well it really works. So far all I've done is pull the trigger in a LGS. It was their idea so I went for it. It felt very nice and better than the Savage version. That doesn't mean it will automatically shoot better of course. But Marlins have always shot well but had heavy triggers. I've been waiting for them to put a good trigger on their .22's for many years and now they have but then again Marlin has had their problems lately too so I haven't bought one "yet".

jeff, the non accutrigger models are the older one i believe. could be new guns that were left over when savage made the change to accutriggers. might check it out to be sure. because my savage M93r17 was purchased about seven years ago and it doesn't have the accutrigger. it was before savage installed them on rimfires.
