Savage makes a couple of 22lr bolt rifles with threaded barrels. Look at the MK II FV-SR and the MK II TRR-SR.

It helps if you post a link to the firearm in question.

I will say, based on what I read about it, I wouldn't touch one. As others have said here, you can get a good deal used on much better rifles.
Let us know what you get.
The wildcats are actually a very good rifle. If they have been kept in decent shape that is. Mine in 22 mag is obe of the most accurate rimfires iv ever seen. The new marlin xt series are some truelly amazing bolt 22s

Marlinman, I'm talking about the new Russian mfg. Wildcats. After reading last years review, I'd still pass. I'll try and track down one.

I have the Russian TOZ-17 that the Winchester (made in Russia) is based upon. 'Winchester gets the nod for fit & finish - much nicer stock. The TOZ looks like Ivan was blind drunk when he tried to do the checkering, then just said "Sod it all!" and dunked it in the first barrel of orange goo he found. I plan to strip and refinish it this winter.
However, TOZ gets the nod for a much better (adjustable!) trigger.
Mine is very accurate, shooting right with my Marlins. I would not pay more than Marlin prices for either the TOZ or the Winchester. Good basic twentytwo rifle.

My winchester has an adjustable trigger and it was NIB when my aunt bought it at the pawnshop 7 years ago...but like i said mines a 22 mag.

i own both. i would say go with a marlin. between the two i think the marlin is more accurate. wildcat looks a little better. if you believe that actions speak louder than words... i shoot my marlin all the time. i shoot the wildcat once a year. maybe two years. hehe
