This gun had some features that many hunters will prefer: wood stock, blued metal, high Monte Carlo cheekpiece. But it’s $100 more than the other two over the counter, and not as accurate as the Vanguard.

Providing a good fit for our test shooters, we liked both the feel and the handling ability of the American walnut stock.
The action was smooth and effective with all types of ammunition. Note the show that tips off the presence of Savage’s Accutrigger (arrow). it provided a smooth touch off after the shooter took up the slack—we liked the out-of-the box touch off of 2.5 pounds.
Loading rounds into the magazine required a straight down push and required a little get-acquainted time for those accustomed to a rolling loading action of other rifle magazines.
