The three-position safety (black arrow) was placed atop the pistol grip, lending perfect access. The black lever along the side of the receiver (silver arrow) was the cocking indicator, but we thought the way it functioned, along with the middle position of the safety, was too vague. Factory-installed scope mounts and the AccuTrigger were big pluses in our view.
The Savage seemed to fit everyone who shot it despite a sloppy fit of the butt pad.
We liked the 3-pound trigger on our Savage Arms rifle, but found that by using the supplied tool (arrow) the AccuTrigger system was a cinch to adjust. Removing the action was a matter of removing three bolts.
