Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

GUN TESTS GRADE: B (ADULTS)
GUN TESTS GRADE: A (YOUTH)
The lightest-recoiling and most-accurate rifle. Clear winner as a youth rifle - in particular for young ladies. For adults, this rifle might actually be too light. We couldn’t locate the source of the occasional flyer.

Bolt travel for the Savage was smooth, but some of the younger shooters found it occasionally difficult to close. As to be expected for a rifle in 243 Winchester, the recoil from the Savage was the lightest in the test.
The action was drilled and tapped and came with a serviceable Weaver 3-9x scope - a clear economic advantage for the Savage.
The Savage had the greatest drop at the comb at 1.7 inches. This made it a little difficult for some of the smaller shooters to get good sight alignment with the scope.
