I have held one at a gun show. The gator camo adds nice texture to the grip. Threaded, has a scope rail, and accutrigger. Looks pretty nice to me.

I like the look of it, and I'm not a Savage fan. I assume it'll shoot great, but I'd like to hear from someone that's used one.

When I was looking for a nice handy .22 Mag rifle it was between this and the Ruger American Compact Rimfire. I opted for the Ruger because it was quite a bit cheaper. About the only thing I like more on the Savage is the included weaver rail but it wasn't enough to make me get it over the Ruger.

I picked one up and had a look at it the other day. Fat barrel, and quite heavy. Probably shoots like a champion. I decided that it was just too heavy.

All savage rifles are crap. I will send you beans in trade for savage rifles. I have plenty of beans and many accurate rifles.

I'm not a big fan of Savage, but I do believe that they shoot great. And this little rifle actually (for a Savage) is nice looking. I can see that with the short heavy barrel, it would be good for gators. It was pretty heavy. Not a deal killer for me, but I have enough 22's already.

Isn't this just the MKII FV SR with a different stock? And, the regular model is much cheaper.

It was a bad joke. I have been buying nothing but savage and selling all my other rifles off.

I wouldn't have one just because it is associated with that clown.

I would agree with most TV personalities being clowns but I met Troy at the shot show in 2013 and he is a genuine country boy, not everyones cup of tea but a true country boy everyday. I just stopped him in the lobby at the hotel at the end of the day to say hi and he visited with me like we were standing on the boat ramp after a work day.
