Quiet possibly the best factory guns you can buy

i just run across this video and thought you guys might like to see it. I knew Savage had come a long way and it looks like they are not done yet. I think they may be the leader of the pack and every other company is chaseing them.

Savage Arms > Accuracy

What do you guys think. I know you will like this liltank

For the dollars spent, I personally think that they are the best and overall the most accurate out of the box. No need to have a gunsmith true the actions due to the floating bolt head design, the barrel nut system allows the average "Joe" to swap out barrels at will with limited abilities and zero machining required. The Accu-trigger is a very safe "factory" trigger system, but not the greatest trigger with regards to feel. As you stated though, I completely agree that they are right now the most accurate out of the box rifles, bar none, especially given their prices vs any other rifles of similar specs.

Re: Quiet possibly the best factory guns you can buy

well there ya have it. The reason I chose this company over others. Though I will admit, I do want to do a Howa build on of these days. The other is purchasing a Savage Target action and doing some type of a varmint/bench rifle.

A very accurate solid platform. Savage has really paid attention to what shooters are looking for. Personally I dont like the Accutrigger but hey, thats just me and its a quick easy replacement with any other offering. Price wise they are incredible. as a platform to build from Savage/Stevens rifles are great.

Re: Quiet possibly the best factory guns you can buy

I waited for a long time to buy a rifle. I looked at many models and brands. I was always told that Savage was crap. Savage's name kept coming up when I did research. After about a year, I ended up with one. I couldn't be happier. I wish I had the kind of money, where I could have one of the fine gunsmiths on this site make me a custom beauty. But out of a factory gun I got most of what I wanted. Most importantly, accuracy.

Quit posting this crap. If you tell everyone, everyone will want one. Then Savage will start charging more.
