Re: Stevens \"Model 200\", Input please....

Stopped by the gunshop the other night to get some powder. He had a couple on the rack. Here are some impressions:::

Price on the rack was $279--I've seen the distributor to dealer price and it's $229. Not a problem for me--guy has to pay his bills too.

Gun felt quite light but balanced real nice.
Trigger pull was heavy and a little creepy.
Recoil pad--not much of one there....would hate to shoot this thing in a 300 win mag.
Action was smoother than I expected. Has a blind magazine with plastic follower.
Lots of room in the forarm channel--barrel didn't touch either side but was definately close on one side.

I'd love to buy one and play with it to see if I could get a "wallet target" (you know the ones you show off in the bar that you carry with your wallet)!
BUT...I'm not familiar with the savage family but would probably think it would be worth the $$$ to get the accu trigger and a real recoil pad......or maybe do a comp to the remington sps--that gun seemed pretty sweet for the price and had a real nice pad. (sound like a sissy don't I).....I guess the caliber I'd buy would be the 300 win mag and a 6.5-7# gun w/poor pad scares me.

do you think one of these Stevens 200 actions could be used to build a 338rum or 338/300ultra? anyone know the thread size of the barrel?

The biggest caliber they make is 300 win mag so you'd probably be looking at alot of work. You'd be better off stepping up to the regular savage and might as well get one in 300 rum with the accutrigger. You might even consider one with the adjustable muzzle break??

The stevens action is the same as a savage. If you get a long action you make it a .223 or a 338 laupa improved. Savages are the easy to work on and aftermarket accessories are avalible at reasonible prices.
