    Hey all, first post on this forum.

    I'm in the market for my first rifle (ever!) and wanted to ask you guys some questions.

    I've never even fired a gun before, but I just moved out west and would like to do some target practice. In the near future, I'm interested in hunting some small game also. I have a specific interest in bolt-actions to start with, and the Savage Mark II-G caught my eye. It's affordable and I've heard good things about the manufacturer.

    Down the road, once I become comfortable with it I'd like to have the option to do some customization if possible. Nothing too crazy... A thumbhole stock, a different barrel and bipod. This is where I need help, being new to the world of firearms. I know it's not a 10/22, but does anyone know what I can/can't do with this rifle? I've been doing some looking around ( and some other places, but I'm not really sure what I'm looking for.

    Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks guys!

    There is a Savage forum at - you'll probably get more information by looking there. You might also call Savage and see what parts they sell - sounds to me like what you describe is the BTVS model - it's possibly Savage would sell you those parts at a reasonable price.

    Savage makes the Model BTV .22 cal rifle,comes with thumb-hole stock and a scope,nice rig. I am almost sure U can mount a tripod on it and it is around 400 dollars. Out of the box,this gun will shoot circles around the 10-22. You would have to spend a lot of money on the Ruger and it might, and I do mean might be as accurate as the Savage! My son has this Savage,and one of these days I am gonna steal it from him! :D
