Guns Like firearms themselves, there's a wide variety of opinions on what's the best gun.

OK.......lookin for ya'lls opinion...on two guns
If you had the choice which would it be..
a Savage 111 in 7mm08 with a detatchable mag for 429.00
A Remington 700SPS in 7mm08 with a detatchable mag for 469.00

?????????.........I can't decide...???
Oh Ya....the Savage is a 22 inch barrel the Rem is a 24........The Savage actually has a nice blue job...the Rem is a teflon finish..both are systhetic stocks...neither comw with a scope....but I go that covered....the gun will be another for me and for my daughter to shoot also....


Neither. I don't like detachable magazines. Detachable magazines are too easy to lose! I see people all the time looking for magazines for the old-style Browning BLR's, Win. M88-100's, Rem. M8-M81's, etc.

Not to mention if you do lose one of those mags, they tend not to be real cheap!

I also prefer a Rem. 700 over the Savage....

Some notes here: Long ago, in fact long before Rem. ever made 700's with DBM i converted one of my 700's to DBM. I think it was a waste on a 700 "hunting" rifle... And i don't like it...

I like 22" bbls over 24" bbl.

I'm not fond of the accutrigger at all. I also have never had a 700 trigger that couldn't be adjusted to anything i wanted.

From the guns that i've looked at lately, i would buy a Rem. 700 "mountain" rifle...

There are many arguments over what I am about to say, but IN MY OPINION, it is really tough to find an American made rifle that has the fit, finish, and function of a European made gun. Since I have started shooting Blasers and Sauers, I have sold all my Remingtons and nearly all my Rugers. There is just no comparison.
