So, I pulled the trigger and stopped by Big 5 to buy the Savage at sale price after a few days of thinking. Thanks to everyone who chimed in my previous thread. Turns out most of the Big 5's around my area were sold out and I bought the last one at the only store left that carried it.

Now, the wait begins. Time to shop for a better scope and extra mags.

Congrats on the purchase! I couldn't be happier with mine. If your going back to big 5 any time soon they have the simmons 3-9x32 .22 magnum scopes for about $50 rings included. Im doing very with well with them on my henry.

Thanks for the suggestion. Was looking at the Simmons and Barska scopes. Got an e-coupon for 25% off so hoping to use that on a scope and extra mags.

i think the savage is the is the best thing going in 22 right now. just plain a great shooter out of the box. i picked up a mark 2 fv about a month ago and this gun makes this shooter look good.

Will do. Picked up a Simmons 3-9x32 scope and an extra mag at Big 5 with a 25% off coupon. Regular price $72.50 for both. After the discount, $54.50. Winning!

Hi there....

I was looking at this too. One question I have is: will it chamber/fire CCI Stinger ammo. I have a coulpe bricks I bought awhile back and my 10/22 does not chamber them.

:cool: yup. Mine shoots the stingers well enough to keep some around.

Thanks Oger for the confirmation.

Now sadly seems all the local Big 5's are out of stock. Guess I will watch the ads more closely now.

ETA: Big 5 in El Cajon had three of them on Monday, so I have one sitting in jail now. They still gave me the sale price too. 8 more days.....sigh
