I'm looking for a Savage sporter-weight rifle in .22-250.

Every model is out of stock at every distributor. Package guns, regular guns, distributor specials, nobody's got nothin'.

I mean, I know that there's been a run on "evil" guns....

But .22 centerfire bolt guns?

Did everybody just decide to go coyote hunting??

Let's see, Gander up the street from me must have a dozen or more, Academy across the interstate has quite a few, and the Walmart up the highway had several.

Which distributors did you try to order from?

Edit to add, that's in various calibers, sporter weights in 22-250 really aren't that popular are they? I imagine they just make a few at a time. Most, actually 100% now that I think about it, of the guys I know shooting that round have heavy barrel varmint rigs.

Well, I think they're just rolling out the 09 models, so maybe you're in between the old and the new. I just bought a 12FV in .223 and the store had several dozen in other calibers and configurations, so they're definitely available.

I've noticed the same thing :( as well as aftermarket stocks for savages being out of stock.
