Ive been shooting a savage rifle for about eight years now and I love it. I know savage had a bad name for awhile but they have really came around. They have been voted best shooting gun out of the box for a few years now. The accutrigger is a very nice crisp trigger and very easy to adjust. I bought a .308 caliber and its a tack driver. I know guns are like trucks everyone has there own personal favorite but for the money and what you get I think its pretty hard to beat a savage rifle I have sure been happy with mine.
