First Look: Savage Arms A22 Takedown Rifle


Savage Arms has just announced the A22 Takedown, a new semi-auto .22 LR rimfire rifle that’s ready to be taken anywhere.

The Savage Arms A22 is a very popular semi-auto rimfire rifle. It’s been available in a few different configurations for some time now, but Savage has finally decided to introduce a more portable model with the release of the A22 Takedown.


Savage is calling the A22 Takedown a “go-anywhere rimfire rifle,” and its features suggest the same thing. The rifle’s barrel can be quickly and easily attached or detached with nothing more than a twist, breaking the package down into two pieces roughly 18 inches long. When assembled, it has an overall length of 36.875 inches and a weight of 6.3 pounds. Other features that are conducive to the A22 Takedown’s portability include general storage space in the pistol grip, magazine storage space in the buttstock and low-profile iron sights. The rifles are fed with 10-round rotary .22 LR magazines, and each gun also comes with a Picatinny rail segment for mounting optics and a user-adjustable AccuTrigger.


Beth Shimanski, Director of Marketing at Savage Arms, said this about the new rimfire:

No other rimfire rifles bring the versatility and flexibility of the A22 Takedown…Weighing in at only 6lbs and available in 22LR, this rifle is specifically designed to improve your outdoor adventures with the ability to easily transport it in your pack. Savage is thrilled to bring the A22 Takedown to the market this upcoming year.


The Savage A22 Takedown has an MSRP of $479.
