Default Savage Striker Pistols

I saw a picture of them in a Shooting Times magazine and became interested.

I tried a simple google search, but didn't find anything compelling.

Are they still in production? Where can I get one?

Anybody ever shot one? Experiences?

Many thanks!
-Sam

MDYoungBuck,
I picked up a used 7mm-08 SS model 516 with the adjustable break last summer. I was at sporting goods store(Scheels) looking at a usedRem Model 7 for my kids and saw the Striker. Thought about putting it on hold, but ended up putting the money down right away. I had been looking for a 7mm-08 for about 2 years. Isaw a .308 a few years before at the same store. The large frameand grip make for a great bench rest pistol (would love to find a super striker with the thumbhold lamstock). Having the bolt on the left side is ideal for a right handed shooter. It's a little more to carry in the woods than an Encore (Uncle Mikes size 13 is perfect for a scopedEncore pistol with 15" barrel), but right now I have been shooting it better than the Encore (I am still working on finding a better handload combination for the Encore). An FFL dealer I know has a .260 with lam stock and a bi-pod that he uses for WI whitetail. He cannot say enough about this combinationand has many customers on his waiting list looking for them. Two years ago he fired a single shotata deer two fields away (275 yards), from a seated bench rest position. The deer dropped inits tracks. I am still practicing at 100 yards, but the gun is very capable of 300 yards and more.

They are discontinued, but some still linger in shops' inventory. Get a list of Savage dealers in your area and call around. Gunbroker is a good place to find them too.

First , You can special order them from Savage. Second the going good price is $400 -$500. Maybe 6-650 with scope. The ones with the thumb hole stock are called super strikers. They were made in Stainless and Blued
Also from .22 LR to 300wsm. If you would like more info go to a site called Specialty Pistol there is a whole section on these kind of pistols Strikers and XP -100 . I have 2 XP-100's and a .260 striker. I am Having a custom XP-100 300wsm built 16" barrel.
