    For anyone that puts down the Savage Mako.
    I hear some people on here putting down the Mako, and then saying how great their CZ is. Everytime I read one of these threads people saying they went and bought a CZ then put a trigger job on it, then sanded down the stock for a better fit of the barrell, then did this then that. The Savage comes out of the box and shoots flawless. No trigger jobs, no sanding, none of this or that. Maybe one Mako had a problem but all CZ's need a trigger job, need a stock sanded, need this need that. So I would like someone to tell me which is the lemon or who is the lemon. I guess I'm not trying to take away from the CZ it is a nice gun, but if your going to buy a CZ then invest three-hundred more dollars in it you might as well buy a Cooper or something like that. You can not beat the Savage out of the box and especialy at the price. By the way I have never had to do this or that to my Savage it was good to start with.

    Just bought a Savage Mako 22. 200.00 (brand new). Love it! The only problem is it did not have a clip. The owner of the pawn shop bought this gun new a year ago and it collected dust until I bought it. Someone lost the clip and I need a new one. Any ideas where I can find a clip or clips for it????

    The only thing I don't like about the Mako is the look. My Savage shoot as well as anything.

    Savage clips

    Rick anyplace like Scheels, Sportsmans Warehouse, Basspro, or Cabela's will carry those clips, and should have them on hand. they run anywhere from $12.00 to $20.00.

    Had a .22 MAKO and I never would have imagined a bolt action rifle could be so unreliable. My particular one was a huge LEMON. Give me a CZ any day.
