I’ve got to agree with TWANGnBANG; the Savage Mk II FV-SR is one of the nicest bolt-action .22LR rifles I’ve ever found for the money. It’s incredibly well-balanced, slick shooting, and very accurate, despite having a cheap polymer stock. I’ve personally witnessed several shooters earn their Riflemen patch at Appleseed with FV-SRs, in a course of fire that most people seem to think favors semi-automatic rifles.
