I had heard mixed feeling about the gun. I bought it about 1 month ago it shoots great groups so far.

Was eyeing up a Rem Light Varmint Syntheitc. The one I wanted sold. I saw this rifle and it had the same parameters as the Rem, i.e. Pillar beddded, blind magazine, free floated barrel and it was about $500.00 less. As Savage barrels shoot I decided to try one of these as a project gun. I placed an inexpensive Simmons 2x10 on top of it with Weaver mounts and rings, camo painted the stock and replaced the "not too bad" trigger with a Rifle Basix Trigger. After breaking the barrel in with ball ammo I put my favorite 223 handload through it (55gn Sierra Blitz pushed bu 25.5 gns of H335 Rem case and Rem BR Primer). The result? This combo put up an initial 3/16" 3shot group (yes 3/16" group). The goal was to put together an inexpensive truck rifle that shoots and IT DOES!. All in all this is the best value gun on the market. The original trigger once adjusted isn't bad but this gun came to life with the Rifle basix trigger. And I doubt that the $800+ Rem Light Varmint Synthetic could have faired much better. Lesson: You don't need to spend a lot to get a lot and the Chucks and yotes aren't going to know the difference between this rig and one that cost $1000+. Don'r hestitate to buy one of these guns. Tip: Handloads brought out the best in my gun. Factory loads shot at 1" which still isn't too shabby for a $296.00 gun!
