my little family of 22 calibers is all Marlins. I guess because my dad gave me a model 39A years ago and it has been a good one. But yesterday at a gun show I traded for a new Savage model 93 22 mag. How about these Savages? I plan to scope it this week for these old eyes. I grew up a shotgunner and now in my senior years am picking up the 22's. just love to target and plink. Let me hear from some Savages.
