savage makes them so i assume it is pretty much the same action with just the stevens name on it. i bought a brand new gun in a 243 caliber. gave 350.00 for it brand new. look around at pawn shops, and you can probably find the old model 110 savage pretty cheap. my dad works at a pawn shop and they have a couple older savages for around 270.00 bucks. from what i seen the actions by themselves were pretty expensive.
i am very happy with it considering it is the first one i've ever built. i think it came out better than i expected. here is a target i shot at 327 yards. its a little blurry but there are 3 different 3 shot groups. the first group was low and right. i corrected my scope and shot 3 more times those were the ones that hit to the left, i corrected back to the right 2 clicks and those were the 3 shots closest to the center. this was the first time i ever shot at anything over 100 yards.
