    Spiral Fluted barrel. .22 Aluminium suppressor

    Nice wood in good nick.. Shoots ok. Have not done much with it as got offered a .17 Sako shortly after getting this .
    No idea how much use its had.

    May consider trade what ever. Hope its worth $600.00 (Scope appears to still cost $250.)but we ll soon find out ..

    I ll free freight any non rural address in NZ if it goes for $600.00

    Have shot three things with it. Myna bird at 80 meters, another at 50 and wounded the shit out of a blue pheasant at 120 +
    Have not put it on paper. Suspect a tickle up is required but have not bothered . @viper how did this thing shoot when tickled up ?

    Hey Guys, it shoots well, this used to be my rifle and had it swapped for a 223 solely for more range. I brought the scope brand new also and the DPT suppressor if that's what happy is still running with it.
    It has the accu trigger which is good but I found a little gritty. However I only put 150 rds through it ( 3 boxes ) I got it shooting well under an inch and my best rabbit was 180 mtrs with many over the 120 mark.
    This is the top of the range Savage at the time and cost around $900, scope cost me $260 and new suppressor and threading job ( done by DPT ) was a further $180......that's around $1330

    $600 is a fucken steal....that's a lot of gun and you would be lucky to buy a base line shit model at that price........and yes it's very pretty.
