Default American Classic

Looking into buying the Savage American Classic, probably in .308. Anybody know much about this rifle? Heard nothing but good about the trigger, and want something with a detachable magazine. Doesn't hurt that it's a real eye catcher, too. Any pros or cons?

This thread made me run over to there sight, have you looked at their Euro Classic? (don't know if you've been looking in stores or online.) IMHO its a better looking rifle and comes with monte carlo stock and iron sights. (something I wish more rifles came with nowadays)

i too have been recently looking for a 308 and bein a remington man i dont like to stray but they dont really make a whole lot in 308 so i went to the next i thought of and found the american and i like how it looks but the euro is a bit nicer believe if you like the monte carlo its definetly better. the american is nice but i believe i will get the euro if i decide to go the the 308. is it me or does the euro look bout the same as a rem. bdl

Okie and 700,

You might run over to CZusa. I find there guns especially "pleasing" to the eyes and have heard only good things about them. They are more of a mauser-styled action and will be a little more than a savage but much. They make a full barrel-length stocked gun in some calibers (forget what they call the style...may manchlinner or something like that) that I at first hated, but the more I look at her the last few months the pretty she gets.[8D]

Ive been keeping my eye on the American classic. I just heard on another web site that they have plans on making it in Left hand soon. It should be around $600. I cant wait
