I have 2 Savage mkII's, both are fvxp models. Very accurate out to 200 yards. Both have the accu trigger and bull barrel. For the money they can't be beat IMO. My first has about 3500 rounds through it, the one I just bought is going to the range Sunday to get dialed in on the 100 yard line. Great rifles for training, plinking or varmints.

Thanks! I'm headed out late morning to go get it. I really liked it yesterday in the store.

You will not regret picking one up. I'll post a range report Sunday, I am hoping the new rifle duplicates the accuracy of my first one. The new one was a gift to my wife, now when we go to the range I won't need to share

I've got a MkII too. What kind of ammo are you using? What kind of groups are you getting?

I only use standard cci mini mags as they have been the most accurate in my rifle. At 100 yards it will shoot 1/2 " groups if I do my part. My wife, who is new to shooting is sub moa averaging 3/4" groups. At 200 yards the rifle is averaging 1.5" groups with perfect wind conditions. Normal circumstances are right at 2" give or take. I have to try more match ammo at 200 yards in the hopes it provides a little improvement, overall I am really pleased so far with accuracy.

The Savage plastic stock has too much drop for proper use with a scope. Boyds makes some nice laminate stocks for about $100 plus you will need a trigger guard. You could also do what I did on my FVSR. I bent and mounted a piece of kydex to make a cheek piece. I put a Boyds stock on my wife's FV.

I really like that wood stock. Does it have a thumb hole? And how much was it?
