.22 Bolt action help (1 last time, hopefully!!)
I have narrowed my choices down to a few different rifles. Price is a large factor in my decision, but I also have a few preferences (heavy bbl, stainless, synth. stock) that are making this more difficult than I bargained for....
Here are the rifles I'm considering:
1--Savage MkII FV (Synth stock, hvy bbl, but blued, not SS)
2--Savage MkII FSS (Synth stock, reg bbl, SS)
3--CZ 452 Training (Laminate stock, reg bbl, blued)
4--Marlin??? 981T? (haven't heard much about these)
Both Savage rifles are ~$220ish and the CZ is $270. I really like the CZ 452 Style or Silhouette (Synth stock on both), but they are $350+ everywhere I've looked, and I'll still need a scope. The CZ 452 Varmint has the heavy bbl, but has the wood stock (around the same price as the Style).
I like the idea of a tube fed rifle like the Marlin 981T, but the low price scares me... What kind of parts upgrades are there to make it more durable/reliable (if necessary)
Also, are the CZ's worth $100-150 more than the Savage rifles? I've heard great things about both....
Any advice/opinions are appreciated!!!!
EDIT: I've shot .22lr's my whole life, so this will not be my first time shooting. I'll be using it for plinking (turtles/targets)....
