    I just bought a savage mark II .22 and wanted to pick up a few extra mags. But every online retailer seems to be out of them. (cheaper than dirt, etc.)

    Anyone have a link to a site that has them in stock? Does Walmart carry them by any chance?

    My walmart carries the 10 round ones, but not the 5 rounders.

    Thanks guys. It sucks that the closest walmart with a gun department is a hour away! I better call first.

    One other question...

    On my Mark II, the safety requires a decent amount of thumb pressue to disengage. Im not used to this as all my other guns have safeties that are very easy to switch to fire.

    Is this just a trait of the Mark II or is there something weird with my gun?

    Have one right beside me...seems to have a decently firm detent on the safety, but is not in any way sticky or difficult to move with my thumb. I think your stock may be rubbing against the safety and causing it to feel sticky. As far as the mag, I have seen them at WW and BPS but am not sure if either has one in stock. :)

    Thanks Maverick.

    I checked the stock and it isnt rubbing. Flicking it on to safe is effortless, but switching back to fire is a little "firm" like you described. But not difficult. My other guns all have cross bolt safeties so im probably just not used to this kind yet.

    I think im just being too anal about it. Thanks again.

    Mine behaves the same way, going from fire-to-safe, easy, going from safe-to-fire, a tiny bit more resistance

    I find that unless I am pressing the safety directly in line with its axis, it is a little stiff. My thumb seems to want to press slightly inward toward the receiver, making the safety stiffer.

    +1 in Wal Mart-- I ordered them from Savage (2 -5 rounders a 10 rounder)--

    Went to Wal MArt and the had the 10 rounders on clearance for $5.95 a piece-- I picked up 2 of them---

    I doubt I will ever use them all, I mainly squirrel hunt with 5 rounders-- but I like having them al lloaded up at the range....

    No problem guvnor. What you said makes perfect sense their is a detent (small machined divit) on the safe position and none on the fire position, and it is more difficult than a crossbolt type (but a great deal less than the typical AK :cuss:). Great gun for the money, and plenty accurate to boot. :)
