Re: what kind of action???
I don't care for Savage actions from back when it was Savage/Stevens...I can't tell you how many customers came back into the store saying how their Savage wouldn't hold a group better than an 1.5-2.00" at 100 yards. To say the least, that really turned me off of Savage.
However, I have been told that the newer Savages have come a long way from the old ones. Either way, hearing those guys talk about them back then really threw me off of them bad enough I never wanted one after that. Before that I had always wanted the one with the Varminter Choate stock and heavy barrel. But after hearing them, I bought my 700 Sendero SF in 7mmSTW, and never looked back.
I have/will always be a Rem 7,700, M24, & 40-X fan, just b/c of how legendary they are. I have been shooting them for years and years now, and have never had anything bad happen to any of them. To me, the years and years of positive shooting has made me a lifelong fan.
So, other than hearing those guys talk at the gun shop about how their old Savage/Stevens wouldn't group @ 100, that is the only personal experiences I have with them, other than selling them.
