Savage Arms Sold
« on: August 27, 2019, 08:40:21 AM »
Was reading in the September 2019 of the American Hunter where Savage has been sold, from Vista Outdoor to Long Range Acquisition, LLC......As most of you know I love my Savage Rifles and sort of prefer them over Remington, Ruger and Winchester, just slightly. So wonder what the new owners have in mind for Savage, maybe better barrels? maybe better Actions, maybe better stocks, who knows at this time....but to the worker bee on the Savage floor, it business as usual. Hopefully they (the new owners) will leave the team together for a while anyway....

I do remember when Savage introduce the Accu-Trigger, then may the original blue Sendero barrels, then they come out with the Accu-Stock. All of these innovations at a reasonable cost to us the common folk...I do remember my first Savage, do you? One of most accurate rifle I own is a Savage LE-1 in 308. It shoots 1/2" MOA at 100 yards day in and day out...using the 155 gn Berger Bullets/Viht 140/Lapua/CCI-BR2......Acutally, I sold a 24" Savage bull barrel Savage in 308 and bought the little 20" heavy barrel in 308...man does it shoot good, but needs cleaning after about 15 to 20 rounds.....does not have the Accu-Stock but does have the Bull Barrel and the Accu-Trigger, so 2 out of 3 is not bad....this little Savage is about 25 years old... 

Would like to hear from you guys about your first Savage...

I've never owned a Savage.  Nothing at all against them, just never came across one at the right time.  If I was looking for a new bolt gun however it's hard to beat what they offer for the dollar.  Everyone I know with one of their rifles is very happy with it.

and enjoy it!

OK - Love my Savage Rifles...As I look on the internet, Savage and Remington are the two leaders in left handed rifles, that doesn't mean that they are not left handed rifles that shoot well, like Browning and Weatherby...as well as CZ, Ruger and Tika. Heck, most of them are set up to produce left handed rifles.....they just don't make them as much as they do....I bet they do runs of them each year....and the stocks, they get from Boyd's or Stocky's or make them in house, with the CNC machines just take the image and mirror it and save it....

But glad you are so happy with your 243...I have a couple that like the 100 gn and several of them like the 70 gn....what does yours like? and do you reload? if you do which bullet do you load up in yours?

Gobi - Thanks I was wondering if it was the 243 or the 25-06? Thanks for the clarification......
