Do it.
My buddy has one in 22lr, and it will shoot the face off Eisenhower every time you squeeze the trigger at 50yds.

I didn't realize the trr was so much more.
I can't imagine it being significantly more accurate.
I have the tr-sr, and I love it, but I prefer the more traditional stock for hunting.

The plastic stock flexes and can come in contact with the barrel. The comb is low causing check weld problems. There probably isnt much difference for most shooters. Those looking for the last few tenths in groups, it makes a noticeable difference.

Do you guys like that kind of trigger? I've fondled some of those type triggers in the gun store but I wasnt a fan. I'd rather have a normal two stage or even a well adjusted medium weight single stage. But I havent shot one so maybe I'd have a different opinion that way.

Personally, I like the trigger on my tr-sr (nin-adjustable, no middle blade) a bit more, but the blade doesn't really bother me once I start to squeeze.
They're both excellent.
I've never had to fiddle with any savage trigger I've ever owned.

I've got a heavy barrel Savage .17HMR that is a pre-AccuTrigger model and my brother bought the same gun about 2 years later with the AccuTrigger. The guns are identical in every other way, and his trigger is night and day better than mine. Much jealousy.

The no **** 12lb factory trigger on my Remington 700 .223 varmint rifle was a joke. I tried to adjust it and I paid a competent gunsmith to adjust it and it was still garbage. Timney was the solution. After I sold that rifle I bought a Savage to replace it. I felt no need to fiddle with the AccuTrigger.

It really comes down to personal preference, but I think Savage got it right out of the box.

So...I'm a gun ignoramus. But I'm in the market for a .22 rifle to have out here on the 'ole acreage. Mostly to kill whatever creature is currently murdering our chickens (we've lost three in the last month or so).

I owned a 410 growing up. I've handled and shot numerous guns in my lifetime, various rifles, shotguns, and hand guns. I am not a hunter, nor do I really plan on becoming one.

So, that said, what would you experts recommend to me? I don't want to spend much, but I don't want the crappiest thing on the market either.


Thanks in advance.

Buy the exact thing we've been talking about.
You can't go wrong with Savage, although the semi auto mags are garbage.

I'm not an expert... but ruger 1022 is a safe bet. It's sorta the miata or 22 rifles.

I just bought a beretta a400 to do sporting clays and some trap. I really wanted an OU but hot damn is a good one expensive. Hoping I like hte a400.

Speaking of Ruger 22s.
I bought this for $300 off a friend, he never shot it and it came with a bunch of ammo.



I love the feel. I need to shoot it.

This has been my experience with the accutrigger as well. Great out of the box. My rem varmint 308's trigger was like pulling a cinder block across a concrete pad. Cleaned and adjusted the pull weight. Initially had it way too light (like sneeze and it will break light). Tightened it up a bit and i think it is a safe 2 ish now.

If you don't have a good gun belt, buy one.
I got my gen3 less than a week after ordering it. Definitely comfortable to wear. I've had to play with the screws some to get the draw decent, but I'm happy with it now. But, I see what you mean about a good gun belt. I think I'm going to order this:

If given the choice between a 10/22 and a savage, I would pick the savage.
Savage Pros:
1. Cheap. Shop around, and you can find incredible deals. Threaded/fluted bull-barrel for less than $300? Check.
2. Accurate. Like magically accurate. This applies to both bolt and semi guns.
3. Good configurations from the factory.
4. Fanfuckingtastic adjustable trigger.
Savage cons:
1. Semi autos have magazines that wear out if care is not taken when loading. Bolt guns are fine.
2. Cheap stocks. Easy fix, if it is even an issue. I personally like them just fine. Bench style stocks are actually really nice.
Ruger Pros:
1. Huge aftermarket. Any modification you can even dream of can be made with off the shelf parts.
2. Any option imaginable from the factory. Want a rifle that looks like its from the movie starship troopers? Check. Want it in a takedown configuration too? Check.
3. Good magazines.
Ruger cons:
1. Slightly more expensive.
2. Trigger not as good, although there are very good aftermarket triggers available.
3. Accuracy not on par with Savage, although it can be had with a little investment.

Overall, I think the savage is a better value.

My old roommate had a 10/22 with a bull barrel, new stock, a trigger you could practically pull with a hair, nice scope, etc.

Thing was an absolute tack driver. He'd shoot the primer on shot gun shells one after the other at 100yds.

Thanks for the suggestions.

What if I don't want to make any changes? Just pull it out and shoot it every once in a while. I don't want to do any mods or fixes. I have too many hobbies and projects already.
