It's not a Savage but it should work. I'd go with the all black one and then you can paint it and not feel bad. Or have Dave's daughter paint it, she does good work.

I like the painting it idea myself! Can you find a savage with an accutrigger for a comparable price?

He turned his back on his fellow Savage brethren when he sold his Savage rifles. He's been band from Savage Land now. :lol: :o

Encore would be fun. And pretty easy to start shooting a new caliber!

I usually don't buy much from Wild Sports but their price was$30.00 - $100.00 cheaper than the rest in this area.I will check with Stephen tomorrow, he was not in today.

I wouldn't give the Communist Conspiracy (AKA Wild Sports) a nickel of my money unless I was really in a bind. They have the rudest staff behind the gun counter that I have ever dealt with.

I have to agree with you to a point. They haven't been straight up rude to me, but I can never get anyone to really help with anything, It's like they are doing you a big favor being present in front of you. Of course there is always the "watcher" at the door - Mr, "Behind the red line", to me. :lol: Gives me the creeps. :o db

I don't think stainless is worth a $150 more. JMO Because then who would want to paint their stainless. :(

The Stainless is only $80.00 moreStainless = $600.00 OTDBlued = $520.00 OTDLater I am thinking of a mid-weight rebarreland restock.Plus Stainless is Purty, so the purchase goes over better with the head of the house :o Should I expect Sub Moa out this rifle ? or am I hoping against hope.
