    I'm glad you like it! Personally, I don't think too much of it, and I'm sure that I couldn't shoot it at all with that really high comb on the stock! But I'm an old fart, and I think a gun should look like a gun, not a toy!:D

    True.. but I find it more traditional looking than say... this type of competition/target rifle

    I agree with you there! And I like wood funiture on my guns, tho I do have about as many with the new plastic stocks. Even a .22!

    Disagree, to my old eyes 'tis a thing beauty. I can only hope they'll do similar with a semi auto to compete with the 10-22. Nothing wrong with a little bling.

    Welcome to 2006.

    I didn't like it when it was first made and still don't.

    The mako is nothing more then a savage 22 with a "special" stock.

    yep!

    looks like a good shooter though, I've never liked thumbhole stocks myself but it's a good bolt gun. My win 52 target rifle is a custom thumbhole though, I do like it. But it's all tricked out as a target rifle, no good for anything else at 12 lbs, only one purpose.

    The Mako would be a hell of a squirrel rifle I imagine, or outdoor target gun. Did they jack up the price because of the stock I wonder?

    Carver is a true classic rifle enthusiast. Yall should have seen the way he clinched his walking stick a couple TFF TX meets back when i uncased my Rem 5 to shoot a hole in one of Charles' small propane cylinders so he could make a mortar tube. I thought for a second he was gonna wop me over the head and make off with my rifle. ;)
