I had one. This was pre decent trigger. Needs a ton of work to make it a decent tactical. I figured if I changed out the trigger, put a mcmillian stock on it, glass bedded tight, it would be a decent rifle. But ended up selling. It was accurate, but in the end, it was still a savage.

Every time In life you go down the road thinking you can make a cheap gun into a fine gun cheaply, you will always come up disappointed. My encore is living proof of that.

Right now facing an simular situation where I got a 700BDL with DM cheap and now want to make it a quality rifle. But its turning out more trouble than buying another gun and starting from scratch.

I have one in the model 10 fp tactical with the accutrigger it will shoot 1/2-3/4" @ 100 yds the only thing I have done to the rifle other than adjusting the trigger is put a Bell& Carlson Duramaxx stock on it. I am well pleased with mine I hope this helps chad

I'll admit that they are not a bench rest rifle but they can hold there own.

Three 5 shot groups fired back to back at 100 yards. The average is .4 moa


Five 4 shot groups fired back to back at 200 yards. The average is .5 moa



Again, I dont claim my 10FP is the most accurate rifle there is but considering it's bone stock, it doesnt shoot that bad does it?

Two .30 cal holes touching,is a solid .600" outside to outside...if only for starters.
Better study up on your arithmetic because two 30 caliber holes touching is a solid .616" outside to outside. Of course everyone knows that groups are measured center to center which would measure .308".

the pre accu trigger 10fp triggers arent terribly bad if adjusted correctly they are actually a decent hunting trigger. I have mine down to a crisp 2.5 lbs breaks like a glass rod a little more over travel then I like but what do you expect from an economy class rifle.
