    I'm looking for a budget elk rifle in either 7 rem mag or 300 win mag. I seem to remember someone saying that the Stevens was a great deal. What's your experience with it? You shoot any groups with it yet?

    Mine is a semi custom rifle, Mcgowan barrel no barrel nut, defensive edge 1" brake, stockade tactical stock. It shoots lights out, best shooting gun ive ever owned.

    With its sporter barrel, plastic stock and plain trigger the Stevens makes a great light/fast short/medium range critter-getter... A bench gun it aint. Kinda like a small block Chevy though in that there are a lot of thing you can do to improve and/or make it fit your needs.
    The biggest improvement I've found is to move the sling stud back a couple of inches so it rides a bipod better.
    The trigger can be piano wired to a lighter spring along with lightly honeing the surfaces to smooth out the trigger pull. An aftermarket trigger or an old three screw Savage trigger will make it easier as well as better.

    Okay well I like the sounds of it so far. I think I want to get one in
    7rm. Since this thing is so cheap I'll be able to save more for good glass.

    The basic Stevens package is a good deal. I picked up the 7mm-08 added Basix trigger and just fitted the center-feed into a Boyd's stock and getting .75 groups consistently with Sierra 140's. I have take 4 hogs with this rifle and load up to 302yds and they were all DRT!. You wont be disappointed.

    I wanted to add picked mine up for $175 at Academy Sports.
