I dont know why you would say buy a 110 when most people will chunk the stock/lug/trigger and barrel. On savages buy the cheapest action you can. Its all you will end up using anyway.
I like rusty actions myself. I have 3-4 pawn and gun stores that watch for savages in shape so bad they wont buy them. One guy they sent me had run over a 110 with his diesel and shattered the stock and bent the barrel into an L. $25 cash. Now its a 6-284 that shoots UNDER .5 moa to 1200 when Im awake and I have about $475 in it.
If your not a tinkerer the nicer variants might be the way to go but if you are the stevens and cheap savages are the way to go. I dont like to buy a nice savage when I can build a badboy in a couple hours for less than the stock ones with a lot more caliber selection.
