I'm not sure how you can't like a Vanguard safety if you like a Remington, Savage or some of the others. The triggers are easily tweaked, though that is not a problem on the S2.
The good? Vanguards generally have very smooth actions and are quite accurate. I own a couple and really like them.
The bad? The RC version is an expensive way to get a B&C stock on a Vanguard. Only you can determine if it's worth it to you to have Weatherby install the stock and test it for you.
That's the short version.
I own a standard S2 in .25-06 and it is easily the most accurate factory rifle with factory ammunition that I have ever purchased. the trigger breaks clean at 3 Lbs and the take up (2 stage trigger on the new S2s) is not bad at all. I plan on buying another rifle in 300 Wby and building it up as a longer range shooter. when I do I'll post more, My only complaint about the stock rifle is that after three shots you HAVE to let the barrel cool or your grouping will start to grow. The #1 contour is too light and not free floated.
