Yeah, I've dinged myself a couple of times but fortunately didn't draw blood (but did need to readjust my glasses afterwards).

Got on the phone yesterday mid morning and called the owner of the Savage 220 Shotgun and he told me that he has a regular 3-9X x 40mm Nikon Prostaff on it...he told me that the scope has almost 4" eye relief and that it has worked good on it every since he mounted the scope. He said that he will be bringing it back to the range today with him and will check it out then....He told me that it isn't drilled and tapped for a long relief type scope....but we will look at it today at the range......

I know what you guys are thinking that the recoil will cause you "scope eye" if you don't mount it right and I agree with you on it..when I shot it the recoil was modest and not brutal like on most shotguns...all of my Brownings BPS and the Benelli both the Black Eagle II and the Super Nova are 12 gauges and they kick me pretty good....so I was thinking the same about the Savage, but it was very mild.....

More later.....

Yari - Thanks for the info on the Savage Model 220 and other info......I have a 12 gauge BPS with a Hastings Slug Barrel on it...Lord knows how old it is....probably about 20 years old, if I had to guess.....

The model Savage 220 with a typical scope, base and rings and several different types and weights of ammo will probably set me back a grand when it is all said and done....I would also get me another 6.5 PRC and another 26 Nosler next year.....

Need to find me a job to supplement my retirement income, you know how it is on a fixed income???   ##$%#1119

With the new year approaching and but for sure the Savage will be the first firearm for 2020....I agree with most everyone here that a 3-9X x 40mm either 1" or 30mm tube...and the eye relief of at least 4".....

I have not had time to look for the last few weeks with Christmas fast approaching and with the wife's kidney stone and her daughter foot surgery (today) and many other things going on (just like everyone else here, life gets in the way this time of the year)....

Will start looking locally and on the internet for a Savage 220....one of my friends that has one (Savage 220) tells me that the effected range is about 125 yards before it starts dropping like a rock....but most of my shots are 75 yards and in so I think I will be safe....

Just got through ordering a couple of extra Savage 220 magazines from MidwayUSA a few minutes ago.....I am sure they will be here before Christmas to go in my Christmas stocking (really hoping to see my wife in her Christmas Stockings this year!!...LOL...

Someone here said it best....going to need a bigger room!!

But let see, have the rings, have the scope. Have the extra magazines headed this way and all I need now is to buy the Savage shotgun!!

So don't be surprised if I buy a stainless, camo stock, Savage 220 after I come back in from after the Christmas Hunt....start the year (2020) off on the right foot!!

Well guys, I'm getting closer to buying the Savage 220.....have everything but the shotgun itself!! Just got through ordering some 25 rounds of 20 gauge Remington 3" with the 473 gn Barnes Expander....I shot this friend of mine, shot his Savage 220 and it shot like a dream....I think I got a 1.5" group at 100 yards using his ammo.....

So have the two extra magazine, the Nikon Scope with the BDC and the rings that will mount directly onto the shotgun, also have the MTM case for the 25 rounds of 20 gauge and all I need now is the shotgun.....

Will buy that when I see the stimulus check.....

I tried that trick on my wife once, bought a couple of boxes of ammo for a gun I didn't have, then said "Honey, now I'm committed, we can't just let it go to waste!" Resulted in one of the greatest eye rolls in the history of marriage. --099-780 ##$%#114 --099-780

Mad - That is way to funny....thanks for sharing.....

That is the beauty of having separate checking accounts.....in her first marriage, they have a joint checking account and it cause all sorts of problems, so when we got married, she insisted that we have separate account.....the only things she does is to name the firearms as they come in.....LOL.....
She really doesn't know how much money I have, neither does anybody else except me....LOL...I tried to show her but she doesn't do numbers or money...she just asked me a few minutes ago if the gallon container was a gallon, I answered her "no honey it is 128 ounces"...that is where the stare comes into play...I can see the wheels coming to a grinding halt...LOL....the teeth grind and I finally answered her yes that is a gallon container....she always comeback to me and says "don't do that math voodoo to me...LOL....

Narrow it down to two models of Savage 220 - The Thumb Hole stock and the Mossy Oak Breakup stock, but will not deviate from the Stainless finish.....both show the Picatinny rail that comes standard from the factory....wonder if that is true? because some of the post I have read say that they will not include it when it is shipped but that could range from $20 to $100 adder to the price of the shotgun......so now it is a waiting game for me...probably will go ahead and make a decision on which model I will go ahead and buy........
