    Savage 93FV SR .22 WMR

    https://savagearms.com/content?p=fir...ummary&s=93207

    I picked up one of these on Friday. I've about $350 in it with scope and bipod.

    I was out on the road between Tusco and a farm to do a little testing of a 93FV SR. Got me a ground hog at 125 yards and another at 150 with this little 22 mag gem that comes threaded from the factory.

    While the bolt and stock are a little on the rough side, it does make sub 3/4" groups at a 100 yards with Hornady 30gr V-Max ammo. The threads surprised me. They are on the high side of the pitch diameter tolerance. In short, suppressor alignment=Excellent. It has the Accutrigger setup and is adjustible between 5 and down to 2.5 pounds. I've got it all the way down, and it is just under 3lbs.

    For all intents and purposes, I tested some CCI 30gr V-Max and it is interchangeable with the Hornady. Winchester HV has what looks like a V-Max 30gr bullet that has a grey tip rather than red, and shoots near identical.

    I had my AAC Element II on it and it was a very surprising reduction in sound. You still get the sonic crack, but very little report at the muzzle. I could get away without ear protection even though I had the roof over me.

    What prompted me to go this route was my other choices in rifles was either discontinued (CZ 455) or not available (Ruger American and Henry) with threaded barrels. So I went with the second budget rifle after the American. In addition, I've three land owners that do not want any high power rifles used. While I don't consider my Remington 700 in 223 Remington a high power rifle, they do. Also, while I have a beautiful Marlin 57M in .22 Mag, it would be blasphemous to have it threaded. So until I get ambitious and locate a .224" barrel blank it will do without.

    So I have to give this inexpensive .22 Mag an A+ in accuracy, an A in trigger, a C+ in fit and finish. Also, I really don't think a Ruger American would have been better in the same categories except in magazine capacity. The Henry is a $500 unknown to me and unavailable at the moment. I really wanted a CZ 455. I can get a 457 suppressor ready, but only in a .22LR at the moment and would be nearly twice the price of the 93.

    It's butt ugly, but will do the job.
