Although Savages tend to be a "no-frills, no nonsense" sort of rifle, they are good rifles that proved themselves in the accuracy department. They probably won't win a beauty contest but they just might show-off at the range.
I have two Savage rifles. ChesterGolf is correct. They are not very pretty rifles especially after many trips into the field. I have never had them malfunction or any accuracy problems.
One aspect I do like about the design of the Savage is the barrel nut. You can buy barrels in other 30-06 based calibers and change the barrel/caliber yourself. I have a model 110 in 30-06 that I am contemplating rebarreling to a 338-06.
Want a quick and inexpensive call for Moose? Take an empty 32 ounce coffee can, and make a small slit in the bottom, only about a quarter inch. Then, take one of those really big red rubber bands, the ones that go around big folders. Cut the rubber band to make one long piece.
Now, thread one end of the band and tie a knot on the outside of the can so it won't pull through. Cut the band off on the other side so it is even with the top of the can.
Now, wet your finger,...
