Default Stevens 200

Does anybody have this rifle? I can't beleive the low cost of this thing, looking at the website its basically a Savage 110 right ? Less bells & whistles but still a Savage action and barrel which should make it a shooter. I'm thinking of one in .243 for ground hogs and yotes and possibly deer backup. Just amazed at the price.

In my opinion it is the best rifle for the money"."
I would go ahead and spend the extra on a Savage for the Accutrigger.
.243 is a GREAT choice too.

I have one in .270 win. its a good gun. the trigger is the only real sore spot on it, but not to worry just get a timney 110 savage model trigger and install it. no integrated scope mounts but a good set of weavers works fine.
now I am hopeing they come out with one in 338 federal or ill get a 300 win. mag.

Gunbroker has some listed at about $265 plus $20 shipping. Have pretty much talked myself into trying one myself, if I can just decide on .243 or 7mm-08.

my 223 cost me $266 that was everything but i know a guy with his ffl so i get kind of a deal but i think that if you can get one for under $300 you are getting a very good deal i dont think they will stay that cheap for very long

I have never actually fired a Stevens 200 but have shot several Savage 10/110s. Actually I have shot all chamberings they offer except the 338WinMag. To me they are one of thethe most accurate rifles out of the box. My Uncles stepson has a Sako in 270 and his brother a Savage in 270. They can swap guns and you can "see" no difference in their groupings.Savage/Stevens may not be as pretty but they are just as dependable and accutrate, sometimes more-so.
My Dad has shot the same Remington 700 30-06since April of 1979. I have seen him shoot groups just as tight and consistent with other peoples Savages as he doeswithhis old girl.
If you are agreat shooter, the Stevens 200will more than match you.
