A22 Takedown

Savage Arms unveiled its A22 platform chambered in .22 Long Rifle at the 2017 SHOT Show, which built on the success of the company's earlier A17 and A22 Magnum designs. The reliable, rugged and affordable semi-automatic rimfire rifle saw great success, but the announcement of the A22 Takedown in .22 LR this year makes an already-dependable platform even more versatile.

“No other rimfire rifles bring the versatility and flexibility of the A22 Takedown,” said Beth Shimanski, director of marketing at Savage Arms. “Weighing in at only 6 lbs. and available in .22 LR, this rifle is specifically designed to improve your outdoor adventures with the ability to easily transport it in your pack. Savage is thrilled to bring the A22 Takedown to the market this upcoming year.”

The salient feature of the Savage Arms A22 Takedown is its simple, easy-to-use disassembly mechanism, which requires no buttons, levers or switches. Simply twist the two halves of the rifle, and a 1/4 turn of the mechanism will separate the gun into its component parts. To preserve zero, both the front and rear sight are located on the barrel. At the top of the receiver is a 0-m.o.a. Picatinny optics rail with a channel cut through its middle to provide a clear view of the barrel-mounted open sights.

Each Savage Arms A22 Takedown is outfitted with a synthetic stock that features a storage compartment located in the pistol grip, as well as a spare-magazine storage compartment located in the stock comb. The button-rifled, carbon-steel barrel measures 18" long and is treated with a matte-black finish. Users will also find a manual safety located on the receiver tang at the top of the stock wrist.

The Savage Arms A22 Takedown uses detachable 10-round rotary magazines, and a single magazine ships with each rifle. The suggested retail price on the new A22 Takedown is $479. For more information, visit
