Even after the forend bolts loosened and we tightened them down, the barrel's freefloat was the most generous of the three rifles. A dollar bill easily cleared the stock if it were dragged down the barrel channel.
The bolt was highly polished and featured the Savage name and logo. The matte-blued steel had been brushed.
Since cosmetics aren't these guns' strong suits, accuracy took an even stronger position in our tests. The Savage rifle did well in this department, we believe, in part because the pillars, sleeves through which the action bolts pass, isolate the action from the stock. Here, the pillar is the light ring.
The Savage's front sight not only offered a quality sight picture. It also came off and went back on the gun easily, a bonus if the owner wanted to switch between optics and iron sights.
