I know it wasn't part of the original question, but if you haven't yet, you really owe it to yourself to pick up a CZ452 and give it a try. Especially w/ the trigger lightened up ;)

Don't get me wrong, I like other bolt action rimfires also.. but the CZs are especially nice.

Re: Savage -VS-Marlin Bolt Action Rimfire Rifles

I have the 917v marlin with bull barrell. I have not tried the Savage yet. I love my Marlin 917HMR. it is the most accurate gun I have ever shot. I have not shot anything except squirrells and it is excellent for them. been hunting for 50yrs, started with 22lr. remington and shot thousands of rounds, killed a lot of squirells. I think it is great practice for deer season and shooting my 30-06.
Hope to try the 17 on coyotes, been reading about people who do as long as you hit them in the head.
Good luck with your choice,I'm sure you will like which ever one you pick, they are both good guns and calibers.

With a $400 budget, you could get a CZ 455 and have 17HMR, 22LR, and 22MAG in one rifle. I got mine for $425 out the door. VERY nice rifles.

Re: Savage -VS-Marlin Bolt Action Rimfire Rifles

There's some serious age to this posting and we've not read if you've made a purchase or decision, yet.

I recommend the Savage, because it offers a better trigger and a good rifle can be made or broken with a trigger.

As far as accuracy, I've owned both brands and they're both good. However, when it comes to calibers the 17HMR rules...in any brand.

The most accurate .22 mag. that I've owned was a Henry. It was hands down more accurate than my Marlin 883 (tube fed bolt action), Marlin 25mn (clip fed bolt action) and Taurus 72 (pump action).

Good luck with your choices!

Re: Savage -VS-Marlin Bolt Action Rimfire Rifles

I have the marlin in 17hmr. I love it, it is the most accrate rifle I have ever shot. I put a 17 scope on it that is made for that caliber and it is dead on up to 150 yds. It is deadly on squirrels, you can literally shoot their eyes out. It has replaced my Remington 22lr for squirells. I just use it for plinking since the ammo is much less expensive.

Good luck,
