Savage Mark II BTV 28750 22 LR

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

GUN TESTS GRADE: A
The Savage BTV is a racy-looking rifle. The action is rock solid and proved smooth in operation. We like the safety and the adjustable trigger. The stock was surprisingly comfortable and was an aid in getting accurate fire off the bench. The Savage MKII BTV is the most accurate rifle tested. The only downside is the thumbhole stock, which in offhand fire, limited fast follow-up shots.
