only one under $1000 and it isn't very well received. Well, $990 for the savage, probly the best buy.
They should have included Melvin Forbes rifles. They are a quality custom rifle that doesn't break the bank.
That's the problem, there really is not any good mid range rifles anymore. You either pay a grand or more for a good one or 400 for a so-so rifle. The only one I have found is the Savage 11/111 trophy hunter, they retail just over 600 and come with a Nikon scope. My only complaint is they are too light for the big magnum calibers, but good in 308/30-06/270
I think the Remington Model Seven LS is a good buy.
I bought my first Mossberg rifle this year because it looked good, it's wood stocked. Wondered if I could get it to shoot well. Well, it shoots a lot better than I do. Best new rifle I've seen in years. Best finished, best trigger and best accuracy. Oh yea, not one glitch in the bedding either. Second one is on the way in 308, $399 with a walnut stock, it's a steal!
I've got two Mossbergs. One in .243 and the other in .308. Like them both and they both shoot better than me.
I'll stick to the old rifles I already have. They all shoot better than what I can get out of them.
I'm really fond of the Remington 783 in .308 that I bought earlier this year, can't really find anything to complain about on it other than the front sling swivel setup.
Only one Savage on that list
Savage lightweight hunter, around $700 and 6 to 6 1/2 lbs.
would that be a model 11/111 Trophy XP>
I hear you carver, I bought a Remington model 660 in .243 Winchester after my back & my neck fusion surgery. It's a very nice rifle considering it was a cheaper alternative to the model 700 when the 600 Mowhawk & the 660 were introduced. Wood to metal fit and machining are great when compared to some of today's offerings.
I have looked at 3 of the rifles on that list in the last 30 days. I still haven't found something that would get me to give up my Marlin 30TK, Rem 700 in .30-06 (I haven't had a factory trigger in it for 20 years) or my Garand.
Yes I haul that 10 lb monster through the woods if I am shooting from a stand, because it is deadly accurate up to 700 yards in my old, fat hands
I don't know DB.....they're called lightweight hunters and they have real wood stocks with lightening holes. The bolt is spiral fluted. Saw one at the LGS, I was amazed at how light it was after picking it up. I went around and picked up other brands in short action...Browning/Howa/Winchester and it was hands down the lightest of the bunch.
