Savage model 40 .22 hornet
Savage bolt actions often seem to get badmouthed as cheaply made guns. And it`s not totally unwarranted. They often have crude finish and heavy triggers, but they are also very tough and are very accurate.
The new accu-trigger gets rid of the Lawyerized trigger pull problem. And some Savages have excellent fit and finish.
The model 40 in the pic below has a nice polished blue finish. It has a custom stock, but the original was nice enough if you like laminated stocks. I bought it used with both stocks. Original owner made the custom stock, and he is very good at it. I wish I had that kind of talent.
The rifle will shoot dime sized 3 shot groups at 100 yards off a sand bag. It`s easily a match for a good Remington 700 as far as accuracy goes.
Wisdom does not come with age. It`s just that as you get older you become physically less capable of acting stupid.
