Well guys I was not able to get thru to Savage CS But when I got home I measured the Barrel diameter directly behind the break and was very surprised to find it measured 0.734" My Sav 270Win measured 0.575 at the tip of it's 24" barrel. I can only surmized it must be a heavy Sporter barrel!
It just doesn't look like it to me! Guess I over-reacted cause it sure looks skinny for what I was expecting! I'll christen her this weekend. If she is anything like my other too she should be a tack driver! Going to put a Vortex Crossfire 6-24X50 on her until I can afford some high end glass! At $99 you can't beat the Crossfire without spending $350+.
Sorry if I created a stink! Have been waiting for this gun for 3 months!
I'll post a range report sometime next week for anybody thats interested!
