It was during SHOT Show 2016 that we learned that Savage Arms had added a .22 Magnum version to its “A” series of semi-automatic rimfire rifles. The first in the series, of course, was the A17, the first high-performance semi-automatic rimfire designed for the HMR cartridge. The A17 went on to win the 2016 Golden Bullseye for American Hunter's Rifle of the Year.
Now Savage has announced a .22 Long Rifle version—the A22LR—which features a straight-blowback action, the same thread-in headspace system as the brand’s center-fire rifles, a 10-round rotary magazine, a steel receiver and the game-changing Savage AccuTrigger. The rifle uses a button-rifled barrel, a steel receiver and rugged composite stock, adjustable sights, and comes drilled and tapped for scope mounts. MSRP is $281.
