One thing is for sure out of the box most shooters would prefer the adjustable accutrigger to the 6 lbs+ remingtons trigger pull.
The last item is cost. Of course the higher end savages run up into the price range of the lower cost remingtons. But that is not apples to apples. I would put a savage tactical rifle costing $650.00 to $700.00 up against a Sendero anyday for accuracy. With a 1.5 lbs trigger, oversized bolt handle, adjustable muzzlebrake and accustock it is every bit the gun for a lot less money IMHO.
Sorry if I offended you But with a user name of 3006savage you must be a big fan of Savages
and that's great . But my comments were based my gunsmith point of view.
I am glad to hear that Savage has fixed there recoil lug problem because it should have never
As far as the accutrigger goes it is still the same trigger with the addition of a mechanical link
that acts like a set trigger that allows you to have a trigger pull of 1.5 lbs with a sear break
point of 6 to 8 lbs . so it is no more than a mechanical multiplier.
As I said in my post I don't like any of the new "safe" triggers including some of the Remington's
But they can be improved or replaced very easy.I have only found a few factory Remington
triggers that I could not improve.
And on the cost issue $700.oo wont touch a sendero but it will buy a beautiful 700 BDL.(The
most popular rifle in the world).
Again; Sorry but that's is my opinion.
