Gun Report

Savage Mark II F 26700 22 LR

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The Savage rifle is smooth in operation, and we liked the action better than the Marlin's. As delivered in the box, the Savage rifle provided an excellent trigger and could have been adjusted even more. The Savage feeds 22 Short ammunition, which may be important to some shooters. It suffered in accuracy compared to the more expensive rifles.

This rifle comes with adjustable leaf sights atop a black synthetic stock in the rear.
Simple post front sight.
The 5-round magazine comes out of the action by pressing the magazine release (arrow) to the rear. The magazine loads easily, and the F would function with 22 Shorts, 22 Long CB Caps, and 22 Long Rifle ammunition.
At 6 pounds, the F would be a good squirrel rifle. The length of pull is slightly shorter than on the Marlin, and our smaller raters liked that.
