Savage Model 110

Postby ajmorell » Tue Mar 24, 2009 7:41 pm

I have the chance to get a Savage 110 30-06 with a Simmons 3-9x40 for $250 and I'm curious to know if I should jump on it or not. Seems to be a pretty good deal based on what I've seen on gunbroker and the like. It doesn't have the accutrigger but that doesn't bother me, if the stock trigger sucks I can always go aftermarket. Guess I should also mention that it looks to be in very good condition and the owner said he doesn't think it got shot much (was his dad's).

Here a brand new Savage 111 isn't much more than that. The scope and rings are free with the gun and IMHO are pieces of junk. I'd hold off. $200 I'd jump on, but I've seen new ones go for $300, no scope. Get that accutrigger. Savage's worst feature was their trigger.

Dons right. Although I really dont like the accutrigger any better than the old ones that felt like they were made out of plastic. If you have a .22 that needs a scope and he'll do it for 200 I would go for it. I think Timney and Rifle basics make aftermarket triggers for that one if your thinking you want a new one.

After looking a little closer on Gunbroker I decided it wouldn't be a very wise investment. With the amount of money I would spend in getting this gun "where I want it" in terms of trigger, scope and probably an aftermarket stock I would be much better off to buy something much better to begin with.

have a weathery vanguard 30-06 that has no upgrades or changes to it. the gun is great for the money it was only a little over 400 brand new. but spoiled myself rotten a got a sako 75 syn/ss in 300wm and that i will never sell. but the sako was 3x the price.

Yeah, think I'm going to save up and buy what I really want, probably won't be a 30-06 either...most likely a 300 WSM or reg. ol' 300 win-mag
