Have always loved Savage rifles, and wanted a more serious one for the range. This Mark II BTVS is what I had in mind. Beautiful rifle, extremely well made by our Canadian cousins, eh. Functions flawlessly. I mounted a Nikon 3-9x, 40mm scope myself. Without bore sighting, I said, what the heck, let's see where this baby hits. Tried it at only 20 yds because I had no idea how far off I'd be, and it hit about 4" from bull's eye. This may say something about the precision of the positioning of the Weaver bases. Anyway, I'll sight in at 50 yds and longer, since now I know I'm not aiming at the moon. (Bud's part in the purchase and delivery great as always.)

No problems at all with transactions etc. Gun is a real shooter. I've got it on paper at 200yds! First time I've ever done that with a 22, but not tried before either. In my opinion this is a great gun for the $. But it will deserve a decent scope to do well. I have a Vortex Diamond Back, 4 X 12 X 40 on it with hash marks for elevation and windage. I wasn't sure what to think of finish on gun stock. It looked like a nozzle was plugged when it got sprayed with protective coating or what ever. But I've seen others like that too so maybe it's me. Bottom line it really is accurate. Scope cost me about $240.00 and really a 3 X 9 would have been good enough. Have tried different ammo and shoots all great but Federal Hunter Match 40gr lead hp did best group. Sweet trigger too and is adjustable.

I looked for this model rifle for almost a month and most dealers had none. Bud's did have it in stock. I purchased it and it was received by my FFL 2 days later. The rifle is a beauty and it arrived in perfect condition. The stock to metal fit is very close and everything works like a dream. I am so happy with this purchase. I was concerned about the scope mounts and discovered that it is set up for Pic. & Weaver mounts.

A friend of mine picked one of these up years ago and I have wanted one ever since. Finally got a few extra bucks and ordered mine. As always great customer service and arrived in no time. In perfect condition when it arrived. When I got a 9x scope on it with a bipod I spent the better part of that Saturday shooting exactly what I aimed at. I put round after round almost through the same hole over and over for the better part of the day. What a joy. I have purchased several firearms from Buds and have had the same kind of service each time. In the day and age of lacking ability and customer service that is usually non existent Buds is a welcome change. Keep it up and you will always have a customer here. Thanks again.

Best .22 rifle I own and have shot. Incredibly accurate. I had it threaded for my suppressor and its flawless. The trigger is the most gorgeous trigger pull I've ever experienced. I mounted a massive 6-24 x 50 scope on it.
