Offering a quick two-piece takedown with just a quarter twist and the ability to store extra mags in the stock, the newest Savage A22 rifle is ready for the outdoors. 

Based on the company's well-liked A Series rimfire rifles, the simple A22 Takedown is lightweight via an 18-inch carbon steel barrel with an installed 0 MOA Picatinny top rail and a synthetic stock. The latter includes 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 rotary mags. Savage bills the model as ready for camping, hiking, boating, hitting the range, or any other outdoor activity as the 36-inch overall length roughly halves for stowage.

The synthetic stock includes a small storage compartment in the pistol grip for Skittles or whatever and a magazine compartment in the hinged cheek riser. The arrangement is kinda like Magpul's Backpacker stock for the 10/22 but more Savage-based.

Takedown is easy, with a quarter twist and a pull.

The A22 Takedown comes standard with a user-adjustable Savage AccuTrigger that can be tuned from 3-to-5 pounds. 


"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 6lbs and available in 22LR, 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."

MSRP on the new Savage A22 Takedown is $479. That compares nicely to the Ruger 10/22 Takedown series.
