Savage vs. Remington

7 posts in this topic

Im looking to purchase a new varmint rifle. I have been going back and forth about which rifle to get. I have looking at the Savage model 12 low profile and the Remington 700 VLS. I have been cursed by being left handed so my options are limited. They cost about the same online. So what do you guys think? :)

How do the triggers compare? Is the Remington trigger adjustable like the Accu-trigger?

Remington looks nicer and has a zillion aftermarket parts. But it costs more. I owned a Rem 700 VS SF .308 at one point. Great rifle, but sold it for quick cash.Savage feels like a rifle on a budget, but they shoot with the best, and better. For less money too. My next rifle will be a Savage 12FV w/bull barrel and synthetic stock for under $500.

I've got a Savage Model 12 they're real nice and a tack driver out of the box. You can't beat the Accutrigger either. I also have a Remington 700 VSF a little different but close to the two you mentioned. The Remington is more money and you have to have the trigger done or purchase an after market. But the Savage Model 12's are HEAVY. They are great squirrel guns but you wouldn't want to pack it around. My Rem 700 VSF is a little better and very accurate with my reloads. But I wouldn't want to pack either of them on a long hike. Plus I have way to much glass on mine for carry guns.
