Bought myself two new .22 rifles.

One is a Savage Mark II - TRR-SR and the other is an Uberti Rolling Block.

I am flat-out amazed at the accuracy of the Mark II. I'm shooting it from my garage. The target is about 25 yards away. There's a huge natural hill that serves as a back-stop for the bullets. What I do is shoot at the black part of a Shoot-N-C target to get a white hole. Then I shoot at the hole. I thought I was missing and rolled out to the target (I'm in a wheelchair) and realized that my second shot was hitting the same hole as the first shot. My scope is a Simmons Mag 22. I'm shooting CCI Quiets.

The other is a Uberti. This .22 is a replica of a 1871 Rolling Block and it is beautiful. Using its iron sights I was able to consistently hit a 3 inch target. I had to drift the front sight over to the left just a tad to get it on target (it was hitting left of target out of the box). Took me a little while to zero it in. Just wish I could see better. I'm shooting Aguila Colibri 22's out of the Uberti.

Just thought I share my joy!

Bobby

Thanks, c01, when you're in a wheelchair and just sitting around, shooting is a great way to pass the time - I shoot a LOT - practice makes perfect, they say . I use the subsonic ammo and neighbors have never complained (knock on wood).

That savage might be one of the most underrated .22 rifles. Hangs in there with the CZ's and other fine .22's, according to reports I hear.

I read up on the CZ's and Savage's before buying. Heard great things about the accuracy of both rifles. Decided to go with the Savage.

I'm happy with it.

Congrats on the new 22s! I bought a Savage Mark II last year and love it. One of the greatest 22s on the market IMO

I fully agree as the quality of the Savage Mark II. It's a SWEET shooter. It even feeds those little short Aguila Colibri rounds from the magazine. My Henry pump won't feed them.
