It was sounding too good to be true :lol:


Yeah my bad mate - honestly I like the Accutrigger on the Daughters, its nice and crisp (its been modded) so if this ones anything like that I will be great to shoot with.

12's the junior license age as you probably know.

I think that's reasonably, with education and supervision of course.

IMHO.

I've got two savage .22s now and I just can't get over how accurate they are with just about every ammo out there. Sure some of the premium stuff tightens up a bit but even cheap old CCI standard is more than acceptable- even with the s**ty old plastic stocks..

I can't see myself ever buying anything else again.

I certainly can't complain about them, they just seem to shoot and shoot bloody well for the $$$ both these Savages only cost around $450 each (2nd Hand) I honestly couldn't be bothered spending a $1k on a 22 just to shoot rabbits with.

For the $$ I'll happily stick with the 2nd market when it comes to 22's and Savage in particular, especially when they have been used for target shooting purposes, it generally means they have had all the mods and tunes done to them which makes them even more of a bargain. :thumbsup:

The first time out with her new to her (2nd hand Savage Mk2) the Daughter put in a group that would almost fit into a 5c piece (not bad for a girl who only got the rifle and hadn't really shot much before - first time shooting groups too).

They generally get sold as those who are into shooting groups competitively need to go up to a Ansultz or other target rifle to get better groups - which works for me as I can happily use the Savage capabilities to smack gongs and bunnies in the head no worries at all. :lol:

0.241" on that best group, plenty of $1,000 rifles wouldn't shoot that either.

I couldn't say mate, never owned or used a specialised target rifle, I'd imagine they would be more consistent when it comes to making tiny groups. :thumbsup:

Yeah I suppose its ok for groups mate, I hope this latest one will shoot the Win PP Subs and Win 40gn ok as they are the main ones I use on bunnies, I also use the CCi Standards on htem to good effect too (I guess it doesn't really matter much what you use on them when you shoot em in the head. :lol:

I was going to say the same thing as Tiiger, the stock looks darker than mine too, very nice. Great find.

Mine also loves anything CCI, using the Velocitors at the moment, 40gr at about 1400fps is a hard hitting 22LR!

I think I tried them and the CCi Segmented and both shoot fairly well from memory, I find the Win PP Subs good enough for rabbits at standard sort of ranges. :thumbsup:

The PTA arrived today so I went down and picked up the Daughters Rifle, I mounted the Tasco World Class Plus 3-9x44 on it in a set of Leupold Rifleman Mounts, I might reposition those but for now it will do.
