    Nice. The Accutrigger is worth it IMO.

    Just a guess but I'm thinking 10 days.
    Just look at the flowers Lizzie, just look at the flowers.

    Thank you. I wonder if a waiting period has actually ever worked as intended?

    Savage rifles are hard to beat outta the box and for the $$$. Looking forward to your range report. Congrats :guns::guns:

    I've heard on here for years how accurate Savage rifles are out of the box. But I have two, one of which I suspect the barrel is burned out of but the other is brand new and won't shoot tighter than 1.5-2 MOA. I'm seriously considering ordering me a barrel from Mid Way and changing out the 7 mag. But the Stevens 200 .223 has me wondering. It's new, and I can't get it to shoot anything consistently.

    But at least if you have a barrel vise, a barrel wrench and access to the correct Go-No Go gauges, you can change them out yourself and don't need to ream the barrel to fit. That part has gotten expensive nowadays. I do love the those features of the Savage design.

    Anyway, congrats on your rifle and I hope you don't have the same problems I do. in .308 it should be a tack driver.
    Daddy, what's an enabler?
    Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.

    Yep, it makes you wait.
    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    I'd say yes, as it was intended to annoy gun buyers.
    Not too many problems you can't fix
