Victoria B.C.: Lakefield Arms .22 Mk II (before Savage bought Lakefield) – see description

I made this video for my cousin in Alberta, Canada. I admire Savage rifles and I have a few of them. This, however, is the Mark 2 before Savage purchased Lakefield Arms in 1994 (I think it was 1994 – someone correct me if don’t have the right year).

Lakefield Arms was/is in Lakefield, Ontario, Canada. The same factory still produces smaller calibre rifles as part of the Savage company. The Mark II that Savage sells today is still made there. The current Mark 2 has the excellent accutrigger and the bolt is redesigned to make it more obvious to the eye when the bolt is cocked. But this Lakefield trigger is crisp, has an exact 4 pound pull and feels just right.

I do need to get a good bore light though, instead of trying to operate video and point at a light at the same time. Lol

    Carried tons, shot little. An honest hard use rifle that earned every scratch lol.

    I just got one of these, identical! Where on earth do I find a magazine that fits proper?

    I have this exact rifle. It was my first gun which I recieved on my birthday in 1995.

    Im cleaning 1 for my buddy and his bore is shiny new also. Same mk2 lakefield rifle 22lr. I own a cooey 64b , has 2 steel 10shot mags and 1 piece rail for 4x weaver scope. Set for 20 yards. Its a very accurate 22lr semi auto. I added a shim under the barrel for a 3rd point of contact to get more even barrel harmonics. So its free floating now from the shim and it works great.

    I have owned one of these for years. I use it for vermin control (raccoons and groundhogs mostly). The iron sights are fine but with my 60 year old eyes I find a scope much easier. I grew up near Lakefield Ontario and knew some guys who worked in the plant (they’d all be long since retired now), and I also knew about the fine workmanship on a relatively inexpensive firearm. I have no idea what the quality is like now that Savage owns the place, however I can imagine that it hadn’t changed at all. It’s a great rifle.
