I know you are always looking to upgrade your gun stocks.

This one has both a accu-trigger and a accu-stock !

Neither are as good as "custom", but more than adequate !

I believe that you can also get rid of the Accutrigger and replace it with a good aftermarket trigger if you do not like it. Some guys, including myself, really do not care for the Accutrigger - others love it.

A dozen replies and not one negative post..., quite an endorsement!!

Flags....Yeah boy who wouldn't want one! I'd take it in 300 Savage also.

Sheridan....Who me?.... LOL! I've come to the conclusion if I'm gonna upgrade it's gotta be a Mcmillian or Manners......and I don't see me spending that kind of $$$$ anytime soon.

Thanks guys I'm eye balling one on GB now! Package deal with a Nikon 3-9X40 Prostaff in 7-08!!

I've got a Savage 99 in 300 savage from about 1907 that is still accurate, just expensive to by loaded shells for.

When I grew up in MI that is what most of the old timers hunted with, that and other types of lever guns... You can find them for sale and they are not all that pricey...

Ain't nothing wrong with a Savage rifle. They are strong and accurate and affordable.

Bought my first Savage (Axis 7mm-08) a year ago and found it smooth and accurate with cheap Bushnell 3X9X 40 mm scope. Have a bad shoulder so firing 40 plus rounds each week caused a bit of pain so sold it and got a model 11 Lightweight Hunter in 260 Remington. Extra Special rifle with Accutrigger, accuracy is 0.350 inches at 100 yards using Nosler Ballistic Tip 100 gr. and no pain. Selected Nosler 125 gr. Partition cartridges with 1 1/2 inch group at 100 yards. so will work up a hunting load some day soon.

Last winter I purchased a second Axis in 223 and it's also smooth and very accurate and cheaper to shoot with less powder. I use Varget for both rifles. Largest game I plan to hunt is white tail deer and both rifles are legal here but the lighter more powerful 260 is my favourite to carry and shoot. No success this year but the shooting with these rifles is fantastic.
