    I decided on the Savage Arms Mark II.

    Synthetic stock, piddly little 10-round detachable mag, nice clean 5-pound trigger pull (which I intend to reduce to about 2.5 when I get around to it) and DAMN accurate.

    Anybody know if I can get bigger mags for this? Dad had some 30-rd mags for a Marlin but I don't know where he got them or if they're even made for the Savage. Or if they're legal.

    All I've ever found are 10 round mags. But, I bought 5 of 'em. :lol:

    :ttiwwp:

    Good choice. I picked one up for my son and it has proven pretty darn accurate.

    I have 3 of them. 8)

    I've the Mark II and the Youth Model with wood stocks. In fact, they are both actually "Lakefield" rifles, not Savage Arms. Lakefield was bought out by Savage some time back. Exact same model though.

    Also have a SA Mark II with the black stock (like yours) that I got for my daughter when she turned 10 (almost 5 years ago).

    Unfortunately, none of them have the cool "accu-trigger" as that is a new invention for them.

    But, they are damn fine rifles.

    Why wouldn't the mags be legal? There isn't a capacity restriction in GA...

    I love the accutrigger. I opened up the rifle and made the trigger pull a whole lot lighter, and it broke cleanly and accurately at just under 2 pounds.

    If they renew the Black Gun Ban they won't be legal.

    You guys are killing my "fix the house money."

    First, I come down with BRD.

    Then LeCZends buys a CZ75 and lets me play with it. After that, he applies for his GFL. I think, "I'm OK, I've got an AR in the house, and I know how to use it. I don't need no stinkin' GFL or pistol."

    He then proceeds to send me news articles of all the messed up stuff going on that I was trying to ignore and tells me about this site. Great.

    "Wow, those H&K's are nice. 9mm's are sweet. Oooo... what's a .40?" Off I go to enemy territory (Athens) to look at pistols... Just to get an idea, ya know. "Arrgh! My wallet just jumped onto the counter and bought a handgun!" Stupid wallet. Oops... need holster, ammo, etc.

    I put the ammo in cans and take it to the closet. I see my .22. "Man, I wish that dumb kid hadn't lost the tube magazine for it. Too bad nobody sells parts for it."

    Now you post this, and I think about the '94 ban. If I had a wife, I'd be getting divorced because of you guys.

    :help:

    The OP said "...if they're legal"...I think that's what confused me. I thought you were talking about now. Just get whatever you can now and then :-$ later. :wink:

    Savage makes damn good firearms.

    I own a Savage Model 110 rifle chambered in .30-06 and a Savage Model 410 12GA double barrel shotgun.

    I free floated the barrel on the rifle and tightened up the trigger. That gun can hit a fly off a fence post at a 100 yards :shock:

    Let me know how it shoots. The Savage MKII is near the top of my 'rimfire wanted' list.
