During Mossy Oak’s special event that brought together several of its licensees, we were able to look closely at the new Savage Arms B22.

New to the B Series of rimfire rifles from Savage Arms is the B22, a gun that looks and acts like it should cost more than its $300 price tag (give or take a few since the models vary in MSRP).

This particular gun (the B22 FV-SR) was suppressor-ready and had a nice vertical pistol grip, which made the handling more sturdy and comfortable. The stock’s design had an ergonomic edge to it, without appearing too robotic or modular.

What was really noticeable was the large bolt knob and pre-installed piccatinny rail, which was a nice way to guarantee a good scope mounting process.

A 10-round rotary magazine and Savage’s AccuTrigger technology round out the extra features.

Some of the models have heavy barrels, some are stainless, and (like the FV-SR) come threaded and suppressor-ready.

You can see all the configurations and models available on SavageArms.com.

The main appeal of the new B22 models is the variation, followed by the price. Gun companies don’t crank out this many new models of guns unless they’ve heard feedback and requests from their legion of customers, which is always a good sign.

We have to give it to Savage Arms; this is a smart addition and a way to continue its positive impression on a good number of firearm owners.

  1. Auto play sucks
    TTAG is under a self imposed 10 day ban. No clicks from me for 10 days.
    Please change this terrible web site experience.

      it works for me on Chrome.
      (But I agree they keep doing it despite our complains, not sure if they don’t care or get more “click-money” from it.)

    • What would be really cool is an audio-only auto play “leader” to all videos that was a chorus of the TTAG editorial staff singing very loudly, “GUNS, GUNS, GUNS! WE LOVE OUR GUNS, GUNS!” Just to be sure EVERYONE at work knows what you’re doing instead of compiling that TPS report. I am loving the auto play entries (which btw are currently playing with NO AUDIO) just for all the griping, puleing and biatching in the comments.

    • ^thank you.
      I am stealing that.

      Spent all day running away from Irma.
      As of 7am NOAA update my house was ground zero.
      Am finally in a hotel (actually sitting in the courtyard; beautiful night) w a nice cocktail in hand.
      Best laugh of the last few days.
      It’s the simple things in life…

  2. I have an old model Savage rim fire, and I really want to upgrade. I do not have an accutrigger (and the mechanism on my rifle cannot be upgraded); the trigger is stiff. Second, the stock grip is not as ergonomic as this, and the grip angle isn’t particularly comfortable. Worst of all, Savage supplied steel five and ten round mags, and the tens in particular just loved to scratch one’s wrist. The new rotary mag is a blessing. But is my rifle is dead nuts accurate with its preferred ammo (35 g. FMJ), and I suspect the new B series will be too.

  3. No left hand model. 🙁 Savage does have some reasonably-priced .22LR left-hand bolt models, though, such as the Rascal.

    But Rascal is only single shot.

    There’s also AXIS, but that doesn’t have AccuTrigger.
