Savage B22 – review

 

The Savage B22 Precision is the affordable match rimfire rifle for .22LR competitions. It will perform on the range, you can use it for plinking and it’s even an accurate choice for rabbits and other vermin.

Its MDT chassis is built from a single piece of aluminium, to make it stable, and has M-LOK rails machined into the bottom and sides of the fore-end for attachments. The magazine is on the side of the rifle.

It comes with Savage’s trademark AccuTrigger, behind a polymer trigger guard, though not the AccuTrigger seen on other Savage rifles.

“The AccuTrigger seen on this one is slightly different from other ones seen on Savage rifles,” says Andrew Isherwood of Edgar Brothers, which imports Savage to the UK. “This one will go down to 1lb 8oz-worth of trigger pulls, which is really light, and it goes up to 5lb.”

“Thats perfect if you’re practising service rifle competitions,” adds Ben Mcilwaine, a competition rifle shooter sponsored by Edgar Brothers.
