Now that rimfire ammunition is starting to appear on the shelves again, it’s a good time to look at new .22 rifles. Just landing in my inbox is an announcement from Savage Arms about two new rimfire package rifles. By “package” I mean ready to shoot, complete with optics. It can’t get simpler than that.

The Mark II FXP in 22 Long Rifle and 93 FXP in 22 WMR both feature a mounted and boresighted 3-9x40mm Bushnell scope and the famous Savage AccuTrigger. Weighing in at about six pounds, the bolt guns feature a 1-in-16 inch rate of twist and 21 inch barrel length to maximize rimfire velocity. Overall length is 39.5 inches and both rifles include a five round detachable magazine.
While similar designs, the .22LR Mark II FXP comes with an olive drab stock and bull barrel. Both rifles have an MSRP of 300 bucks give or take a few. You should be able to find them on the street for somewhat less.
