Savage Arms Fans?

Any fans of Savage Arms here?

I for one, have a Savage Model 12 .308 and I swear by it! Has never given me any problems, and is VERY accurate.

Savage Arms makes some pretty good quality rifles, accurate too. While I'm not a fanatical fan of Savage I do own a couple of their rifles and think value for the money they are a very good rifle. I've also fired many Savage rifles owned by friends and family from vintage to current production. All my experiences with those guns have been very positive.

Excellent rifles for the price. They are not the prettiest girl at the prom but they make up for it in the accuracy department. Thumbs up

Welcome to BGH!

I hjave heard a lot of good about Savage rifles, just never owned one. My son has one and it is a very good shooter. I suspaet that JCalhoon will check in on this, He's pretty much the resident Savage man. He shoot's 1000 yds competation with a Savage. You can probably find a photo os his rifle on the "Long Range Shooting" thread.

Re: Savage Arms Fans?

I am a Savage fan.
Got a single shot .22 I have had since I was 10. Still takes it's share of game off the deck.
Also have 2 Modle 99's best lever actions ever made (my opinion)
-one in 308
-one in 300 Savage

Re: Savage Arms Fans?

I like that Savage has been about innovating new features for their standard models. The accutrigger and now the accustock were good additions. Their 10-BAS series is also a reasonable value and different from most other rifles on the market for the same price point.
