Hats off to Robby Betts at Golden State Tactical for putting this deal together for me. I have a Savage 12FVSS in .308 for long range and though this would be the perfect companion gun to practice with. I also have a gorgeous Anschutz rimfire with a Monte Carlo stock and Leupold glass, it's to nice to beat around. It was a gift from my father and I want it pristine. The Savage is perfect to take anywhere.

Stats:
Savage MarkII TR
Leupold VXII 3-9x40
Alumina flip covers
TPS tactical rings
Harris Bipod

Man thats nice, I was saving to get this rifle next. Actually had the cash but ran across a sweet deal on a Colt/Umarex SPR and snapped that up. But the TR will for sure be my next purchase.

I bet it did.. I lubed the bolt but it still sticks unless you push carefully, what do you lube yours with?

I just sprayed rem oil on the bolt.

I just pulled the trigger, literally on some match ammo. I bought a box of 50 in the following:

Lapua X-ACT
Aguila Match
Wolf Match extra

The Lapua was crazy expensive but I figured I'd try it anyway - wish me luck!

You on a .22 kick Tommy ??? :D:D

I was looking at the same rifle today at Turners. I looks pretty sweet with the scope and bipod :thumbsup:

Oil and just keep working the bolt, it took about two days for my CZ to do it...

You wont find more bang for the buck than that Wolf MT. Every Savage I have seen loves it.
