I only had a quick look when I first cleaned it but there’s two sets of catches, one is on the striker for the firing pin, when the striker is laying down it’s got 2 or 3 teeth and there’s another towards the middle of the receiver length ways, I’ll take some photos when I go to me old mans next, (he has a safe and I don’t) so my rifles love there.

So just got home today from the range and I’m impressed with the savage, I shot three different load through it Winchester power points, cci standard target and cci stingers, it likes the stinger a lot! Around half an inch at 50 metres, it probably could have done a little better with someone more skilled behind it.
I went through 100 rounds on two targets and at the end of it I shot two ribbons off the bottom of my target frame and the hit 5/6 zip ties holding the backing on, a few of the other shooters didn’t quite know what was going on at the end hahahaha. I really like this rifle!

I have the A22 in stainless with a Tasco TRS25 red dot. It’s an awesome fun little gun. Probably a little over priced.

Doesn’t like all ammo. Browning for some reason doesn’t always fire. CCI quiet doesn’t “blow back” enough ie won’t cycle. Loves Federal.

Lever does free up and can be cycled fast.

Dang, I picked mine up recently and the LGS assured me CCI quiet would cycle due to the multiple catches it has for different power ammo.

It's a bit of a pain to give a proper clean too. At least for me, a new gun owner. Whereas on the A22 semi-auto you can just pop the bolt out and clean it. On this gun once the bolts out, to get it back in requires you to remove the stock and trigger set before the bolt will slide back in. Without doing that the catch under the bolt that holds it back will stop it from going back in.

I got around to firing mine. All the ammo I tried cycled the bolt just fine, including CCI Quiet and Subsonics. The CCI Copper wouldnt feed half the time tho, the soft bullet kept getting caught up. None of the other rounds had any problem feeding.

IT was a bit windy and Ive never really shot much before but when trying to sight the rifle in I was having real issues. When standard velocity was hitting accuratly, then quiet and subsonic wasnt even on paper and vice versa. It could very well have been my ability and Ill get someone else to give it a shoot when I next go.

The RO at Belmont SSAA was a huge help for a complete newb like myself. Helped me get set up at the start, showed me how to adjust the scope and loaded a few mags for me so I could test the guns operation fully.

YOu have to give the bolt release lever a really good hard tug and the trigger is pretty heavy I think. \

All summed up tho I had a massive smile on my face while I was there.
