It has the accutrigger and an internal magazine. anyone have this particular rifle and how do you like it? He got it at fleet farm 2 years ago and has not put that many pills down it.

That is what my brother got for deer hunting from fleet farm 2 years ago to, very accurate rifle. To bad its a right handed on or i would be long distance yote popping with it, i plan on getting a 243 or maybe a 22-250 for some long distance coyotes. I got a savage 204, and that is probly what i am getting in the bigger calibler.

I really like savage. The company has the best barrel men in the business IMO. Never heard of anyone gettin a bad barrel. Don't know much about that particular model but if it's something you like just get it.

Tom, that's exactly what I have too, it's the gun we were hunting together a couple years ago. I replaced the Bushnell 3-9 with a Simmons 6-20x50mm and I can tell you it is not far behind the AR as accuracy. Mine it's great up to 3 shots, then when barrel warms up a little it drops accuracy just a tad, but the 1st 3 rounds and tack drivers.

You can put the 3-9 on a .22 and it will work great.

      The lakes took a beating and I was not out on Sunday to see the damage. Saturday I saw the first 4 to 5 inches turn soft. Be careful and check the ice conditions

      6 inch that is a 4.5 inch

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?
