    I have mounted a Williams 5D peep on it now. I have some more tweaking to zero it. I really want to use it for deer season this year.

    Savage Model 93 .22 Mag
    I dont have any pictures of this one it seems.

    Nice shooting Zee. That is a better group than I have ever shot, so I guess that will do just fine. Though I suspect the abilities of the shooter had more to do with that group than the equipment, it is nice to know the rifle is capable. Thanks for posting. I am starting to see one appearing in my life in the future, and you are an enabler.

    Word of caution, the finish on the metal is crap and will require more care than normal to prevent that "brown" tint from forming.

    I actually took it hunting one hot and humid night. The next day, the bolt handle had a covering of rust and the action was wanting a black/bronze coloration.

    Savage rifles shoot well for the most part. But, their fit/finish sucks huevos.

    Zee, and Timc,

    How do those hog hunters shoot? Never thought I would buy a savage, but those things look down right handy. I have been looking for a walkin in the woods rifle, and that might fit the bill. What about the .338 win mag? I have several .308s already, and don't want a short barrel .223 in a bolt gun, so it could be worth adding a new caliber to the collection.

    Like Zee, mine is very accurate too. I put mine together for sub subsonic shooting but I have had really nice groups with full power loads.

    Go buy some "DuraLube", put some on an old tee-shirt/rag & wipe the metal down with it. Your rust problems will be no mo'

    No Savages right now, but if I ever live somewhere that I could use it to its potential I would like to build a 300 WM up as a 1K gun.

    I liked this gun by Savage because of the left hand action. The Remington one you had to switch hands then go back to your grip.

    Not mine, by any stretch of the imagination, but I did connect on steel several times at 1440 yards with it.
    Factory 6.5-284, with a MAC brake added. No Savages in my possession.
