Savage A22 Takedown Rifle :: Guns.com

Offering a quick two piece disassembly with only a quarter turn and the ability to store additional magazines in the newest stock Wild A22 the rifle is ready for the outdoors.

Based on the company’s famous A-series rimfire rifles, the simple A22 Takedown is lightweight thanks to an 18-inch carbon steel barrel with an installed 0 MOA Picatinny top rail and a synthetic stock. The latter features a storage compartment in the pistol grip and a magazine compartment in the cheek riser that will accommodate a trio of Ruger-style 10-round revolving magazines. Savage considers the model ready for camping, hiking, boating, the beach, or any other outdoor activity, as the 36-inch overall length roughly halves for storage.

The synthetic stock features a small storage compartment in the pistol grip for Skittles or the like and a magazine compartment in the hinged riser. The arrangement is much like Magpul’s Backpacker stock for the 10/22 but more Savage based.
