Two of the shooters at the Ramseur this past weekend used a Savage Mark II FV-SR to shoot expert “Rifleman” scores. While our course of fire is generally viewed as being best attempted with semi-automatics because of the time constraints, these shooters used the fast bolt-action and excellent Savage AccuTrigger to do some very nice work.
The muzzle on the Mark II FV-SR is also threaded for a suppressor, and I think one of the suppressors I saw a few weeks back at a Templar Custom R&D meeting would be the cat’s pajamas on one of these. With no semi-automatic action to make noise, all I’d expect to here when shooting subsonics with a Templar suppressor is the bullet slapping the target.
I might have to buy one.
It is a very impressive piece of hardware.
