    I got a Model 93 BTVS for Christmas (same as Mark II but in .22mag) and my buddy has the Mark II BTVS; both shot great! I added a cheap 4x16x40 tasco world class and a bipod. I couldn't see spending much on glass for a .22 but I still wanted to be able to zoom in (you can't shoot the wings off a gnat if you can't see it). Right now I wouldn't change anything on it.

    My buddy has gotten his best groups with CCI green tags, but I don't think he's gotten bad groups with anything? That gun will flat out shoot, congrats on yours.

    I wanted the MKII for my first .22, but money dictated that it would be the Marlin 60. I'm super jealous.

    Brought home the newest member of the family today--Savage Mk II .22LR. Plastic stock, but have been wanting a woodworking project for myself as well. Grew up with long guns so looking forward to getting out and shooting her.

    Very light trigger here, too...I estimate it between 2 and 2 1/4 pounds...definitely takes some getting used to. Biggest challenge I had today in getting the iron sights set was my own vision--it ain't what it used to be. Even LASIK begins showing wear after 11 years.../sigh.

    But it's a blast to shoot! Ran about 200 bullets own the tube today. With the eyesight not being what I wish i was, I'm thinking about getting a scope. Any suggestions for decent affordable optics for this rifle?

    Iron sights: The front sight is not adjustable and the rear sight is only adjustable for elevation. Mine shoots slightly right so I have to allow for that with Kentucky windage.
