Just picked up one of these today, should be here next week. Didn't get a scope with it, they didn't have any i liked. Would love to hear anything related to this gun, and some recommended scopes (no more than 140 tax included.) If you have one or one thats similar, i would love to see a pic. :canada:

I picked up a 93FV in 22WMR and didnt care for the stock so I put it in a Boyds Tacticool. Much better stock but regretfully Boyds has stopped selling these implements of destruction to us crazy canucks...
I had feeding issues with it when I first bought it but it was an easy fix.
Some mags may need the lips bent in a little as the rounds tended to fly out of the top of a few of my mags.
As well some rounds were getting jammed when pushing the bolt forward....another easy fix as I just bent the magazine mounting tab a little forward , this raised the front of the magazine abit and the rounds now feed with no issues. I mounted a Bushnell elite 3200 3x9x40 scope on it.
Overall I really like the rifle and find it very accurate.

I cant post pics of it today but I will in a day or so.

Nice, i really like that stock. What type of mount is the scope on? I was told that dovetail can lead to inaccuracies. Question. Is that drilled and tapped for that scope, or does it have dovetail grooves? Cheers.

I recommend EGW scope bases for them. I have a stevens 305 trapper(savage 93 minus the accutrigger w/ 13" barrel) fun little rifle.

I just ordered a Simmons 3-9x32 A/O silver, with rings, and a UTG tactical bipod for 90$ shipped off Amazon.

Not sure yet, I killed a fox with the red dot setup, but last year I also missed a fox. So I put a 4x scope on it to be a little more precise, just never got it sighted in yet. I'd really like to try it with a eotech because of the 1moa dot size, but can't afford it at the moment.

Its a weaver scope mount with the dovetail mount....its working great for me.

Hey guys i just got my gun today!! Im wondering if theres a way to keep the bolt uncocked when its removed? Or does this not matter? Cheers.

My bolt stays in my gun so I don't know.

Squeeze the trigger while replacing the bolt and the bolt wont be cocked ( no need to dry fire ) .
The savage cocks the bolt in the last bit of bolt travel when closing the action.

When I remove the bolt it cocks even if i hold the trigger all the way. IS there a way to un cock the bolt when its out of the gun? Some you twist somehow?

Something doesnt sound right here.....when you remove the bolt it should not cock it until the bolt is replaced .The bolt doesnt get cocked when moving the bolt to the rear.
It gets cocked it when the bolt is moving forward in the last inch or so of travel. By holding the trigger to the rear when replacing the bolt it should stay uncocked ??

The bolt cocks in the first movement of pulling the bolt up after a shot. Even if i hold the trigger. when the bolt goes back in, i hold the trigger, and in the final movement of closing the bolt, it de-cocks while still holding the trigger. But there seems no way of having it un cocked while out of the rifle... but it was shipped uncocked obviously. Im just thinking you have to twist it somehow while it is out, but i don't want to damage it or lose the tip of my finger, and i cant find any info on it.

It's pretty easy, just pull and twist the rear of the bolt in the appropriate direction.
Padded vise would likely make this easier.

Ok I put on some gloves and lifted the back piece and twisted then let it down. Pretty easy to do. thanks lone wolf. I also saw some other rimfires that had similar ways of doing this. There is quite alot of force though behind that hammer, and kind of hard to hold on to, i wouldnt want to get any skin in there when grabbing it without gloves on... ouch!

I never tried it, wondering if it needs to be cocked to be inserted back into the rifle?

Well here it is. Cant wait to get out to the range!!! Unfortunately the silver rings that came with the scope did not fit the base, somthing i knew might happen before i bought, but took the chance anyway. Grabbed the black ones for 15$ at the store.

I finally got out for the day into the mountains with my guns! I F@#*ING LOVE my new Savage! lol. I was just dinking around with it at first, but the zero was horrible so i took 5 shots to sight it in, and it was great! I was picking target clay fragments off the mountain at 30 yards. That's about all the room I had, save for a rough leg bleeding trip through a logging mess. I also did a quick 10 shots on paper at 25 yards, and ill admit i was a bit shaky with the rifle, I was getting tired :rolleyes:
