Don't forget to look at a CZ 527.

    Re: New Factory Rifle

    Ok, now lemme had a bit more to the question. What types of things would you have a gunsmith to do a factory gun to ensure utmost accuracy? Lap the barrel and lugs, glass back the action, etc. just curious. Ive got a gunsmith locally that does good work very reasonably and i actually intended on taking the gun to him anyway.

    So far to me, the savage 12fv is wining, just from responses and all the jazz ive read. Ill have it duracoated to protect it from me and the weather. Is the acustock all they say it is??

    Let me add another option to the Savage line up: Savage Arms Firearms > 12 LRPV Dual Port

    Own this one in 308, and is a heck of a shooter. You can get this one in either the 1:9 or the 1:7 in .223: Savage Arms Firearms > 12 VLP DBM

    You get the H-S stock, target accu- trigger (6oz.-1lbs), and the dual port for quick loading the rifle. It is a single shot, but deadly accurate.

    I can believe it. They are some accurate rifles. I cut a .233" 5 shot group w/ mine at 100yds. That has been my smallest to date, but I can keep it in the .5MOA to .75MOA out to 800yrds. It is as accurate as a rifle as you can get with proper care, loading, and cleaning. I love mine, but I have since shot out the barrel when I bored it to a 300WSM, and now it is in a B&C stock Medalist A2 soon to sport a Lothar Walther 28" 1:12 in .308 again.

    My opinion is go with the Savage. Best "outta the box" rifle on the market now. The accustock and accutrigger are a great addition to an already excellent factory rifle. I own 2 in other calibers and are hard core tack drivers for a factory rifle! Not as pretty as some but definitly accurate!!....Just my opinion
