Nice stock on the Stevens BTW.

...and nice fedora on the mount. Gives it character......

Re: Thinkin about an new .223

Thanks guys

Anyone have a Savage Hog Hunter in ,223? I am more interested in ground hogs and varmints than hogs. Just wondering if anyone has one. Seem pretty reasonable in price. I like the accutrigger, 20inch barrel, and iron sights. It's also has a medium threaded barrel. Personally I would like a detachable mag but..........
Anyway what do you guys think?

For $100 more you could get the CZ carbine with a 5 round clip.

I bought a Stevens(the Hog hunter is basicly a Stevens with a med barrel and acutrigger) and CZ american a few years ago both in 223.....I no longer own the Stevens but they can bury me with the little 527 CZ!!
The Savage Axis comes with a POS clip,god awfull trigger and a cheap price tag but it will probably hit what your aiming at
This Mossberg looks like it might fit what your looking for but will it shoot=dont know?

Ok thanks I'll check it out. Is the trigger adjustable? If not do you know the weight of the pull, and how does it break for ya?

On of the reasons for the Savage Hog Hunter was the acutrigger. I looked at the Axis and had the same thought you have. I figure I would probably have to put a trigger in it so it was cheaper to go with the Hog Hunter and be done with it.

I just went to youtube to see Hickock45's review. Man that is a nice little rifle. That is defiantly in the running. I think it gives me just what I am lookin for. A little more than I wanted to spend but..........

Re: Thinkin about an new .223

The CZ has a set trigger on it and is totaly adjustable This thing is SWEET! The trigger can be adjusted down to around a 1-1.5 lbs and when you push the trigger forward to set it=ozs
The CZ sporter weight 223 is my main pririe dog gun these days.Sure the barrel heats up but put in the shade it cools a lot faster than a varmint barrel and does not walk all over as it heats up.
Cost me dang near twice as much as the Stevens but worth every dime!!
I've got three 223 Savage barrels laying around here that are going to be put on an action,checked for groups and sold acordingly to help finance a Tika or another CZ.
The CZ's and Tika's have spoiled me

Re: Thinkin about an new .223

I just bought a new Marlin X7VH .223. Less than 400.00
It's a plain Jane with a plastic stock. After break in, this rifle holds the spot at
100 yards and 200 yards. the rifle comes with and adjustable trigger and heavy
barrel.

At the price paid, I can afford to get a Stock from Boyd's Stocks.
I like their Prairie Hunter in Walnut.
