Savage Introduces A22 Takedown Rifle

Takedown .22LR rifles are just kinda cool. Minimalist designs that date back to the old Marbles Game Getter reached more widespread adoption by the time of the 1960s Armalite AR-7 and the Marlin 70 Papoose of the 1980s. Today, besides the Mountain View Arms Pack-Rifle, and Volquartsen VT2 Takedown, you can also add Henry’s rebooted AR-7 and Ruger’s 10/22 Takedown to the growing list. The newest entry to that column is the Savage A22 Takedown.

Running just 6 pounds in weight, the A22 Takedown can break apart with a simple twist and store in two roughly 18-inch long portions. The simple semi-auto use Ruger 10/22 style 10-shot rotary mags and includes onboard storage for three extra magazines in the buttstock while you can cram other small survival goodies in a hollow compartment in the pistol grip.

The cost is $479, which makes it a solid player against the other guys on the list.
