Savage Striker?

I know nothing about this gun
and am thinking about trading one of my Contenders for one.
It is chambered in 22-250.
Anyone have one with some input?
The good, bad, ugly.
What is it worth?
Thanks,
Mike

Re: Savage Striker?

Mike,
Personally, I prefer the bolt guns over the break-opens. Other folks will feel differently about that though.
The only negative for me with the Striker is that it is difficult to get the trigger pull as light as you can with a center-grip XP.
With that being said I have seen awesome accuracy with the striker in both factory and aftermarket set-ups.

Wood or synthetic stock? Scope (brand)?
Prices have gone up on Strikers since they discontinued them, but they can still be had for a reasonable price, if one is patient.
If it is a straight across trade (depending on what you have) sounds like a good deal.

Re: Savage Striker?

Thanks Ernie.

Synthetic stock.
No scope, rings and bases, look like weaver dove tail type.

Contender is a 1970 vintage frame and 30-30 10" octagon barrel
He wants a 45-410 barrel but do not want to give up mine.
The 30-30 barrel should get him the barrel he wants.

Again. Thanks

Mike

Re: Savage Striker?

I would trade a 10" 3-30 Contender in a heart beat for a Striker-But that is just me.

Re: Savage Striker?

Buddy of mine has a Striker excatly like the 1 u mentiond. I think it's a 12", 12 twist barrel. He's shooting the 60 JLK Low Drag into .5-.7" gps. I recently shot it at 425 yds. and got a cloverleaf for 3 shots at 2.5"

IMO, the Srikers r some of the most accurate out of the box SP's ever made. But the trigger is definitely the weak link.
