Savage 64 or Ruger 10/22 semi autoutomatic rifle

Anyone out there have a Savage 64 semi automatic riflle?

Just wondering how accurate the rifle is and whether or not you had any problems with the gun. Right now I'm looking at whether or not to buy the Savage 64 or a Ruger 10/22.

Got a 10/22. Some dudes totally pimp them out and spend over 3 times what they purchase them for. I guess for competitions.

I only put in a new set of sights and that's it. For me is a rifle for fun. Nothing more.

p.s. A bit of a pain to clean, but that's ok.

I can't speak on the Savage, but I have several 10/22's. They are very reliable, and fun to build on. All kinds of upgraded parts can be found everywhere.

Honestly? I didn't even know Savage made a semi-auto .22.

Savage isnt a bad gun, I have one, not crazy about it though as it offers no advantage over a Marlin or a Ruger and the keyhole shaped mag is a pain.

I would go with the 10/22 or a Marlin 60.

Also take a look at the Marlin 795. I saw it a few months ago at Sport Authority for $110

10/22 is king of semi auto .22LR rifles. For a bolt gun get a Savage MKII FV-SR

Unless you are buying a specialized gun or it is so cheap you cant resist, I would pass on the 795. Nothing wrong with it it is the same as the classic 60 with a mag but for a mag gun the Ruger gives you many more options (including flawless butler creek 25rd mags) and upgrade options.

I have two Marline Papooses which are based on the 795 and they are great guns but as noted are ...........specialized.

... but the Marlin 795 is a lot more accurate out of the box than the Ruger is. yeah you cannot dress it out as much as the Ruger but for accuracy sake you don't ahve too unlike the Ruger.

For the price you cannot beat the Marlin 795, easy to take apart and clean, way more accurate than the 10/22 but you cannot dress it up much. The Papoos is pecialized I give you that, as an emergency/back pack gun but where is the 795 more specialized than the Savage 64 or Ruger 10/22?

Yea I saw that Gander Mountain had one on sale for ~$100 a month or so ago but everyone was saying that the Marlin was a piece of junk, was OK for accuracy IF you were shooting at the broad side of a barn, etc.
