Is a pre-accutrigger Savage 110 the same as a Stevens 200?

The local gunshop has a pre-accutrigger Savage 110 in 25-06 for $349. It has a thick varmint barrel, plastic stock and internal magazine. It's in excellent cosmetic shape, although the bore needs a good scrub and some Sweet's 7.62. There is no scope or rings with the rifle.

I have two questions: Is the pre-accutrigger Savage 110 any different than a current Stevens 200? Is this a reasonable deal?

Thanks,

-John

I have a pre accutrigger 110 in 30-06. I asolutely love the rifle. I bought mine used with walnut stock and 3x9 scope and rings for $200. I would not pay a price that high without a scope atleast.

Kind of. It basically uses the same trigger but the receiver is different - the rear bridge is more flat on the older design.

IIRC the Savage has a conventional magazine box attached to the bottom of the action. The Stevens has the magazine box attached to the plastic stock. The actions are functionally the same except for scope mounting. Bolts, barrels and such are interchangable between the teo.

Check when buying scope mounts because the older guns had a flat on the rear receiver rings and the new ones are left round.

Depending on year of Stevens 200 it will in fact have a different trigger.

The old savages had triggers adjustable for pull, overtravel and sear engagement. Early Stevens 200 only had overtravel and pull adjustments. Late 200's only pull

The savage "three screw" triggers are great cheap drop in upgrades for Stevens 200's

That's a 110fp sounds like. Those are very nice. I haven't seen this particular unit but that is a good price. My first one brand new was around 525 otd.

Thanks, fellas, for the replies.

I'm still on the fence about getting it, mostly due to the plastic stock. I don't have a problem with synthetic stocks. In fact, I really like a rigid fiberglass McMillan or similar. But this one just seems a bit whippy.

Thanks for the info that the trigger is adjustable and probably decent.

I also appreciate the feedback on the price.

In terms of true quality, I'd put the 110FP way ahead of the Stevens 200. You can add a better trigger or maybe just get along with changing the trigger spring.
I have a 110FP in 25/06 and it is one of the few true 1/4" (C-C)grouping rifles I've owned. Even better, it does this with Remington factory loads.
The price is acceptable in the current situation. It seems used gun prices have taken a fairly uniform $50 jump across the board. Regarding the stock, it has quite a bit of flex but that can be fixed cheaply with some bedding compound in the short term. You'll find a flexing stock less of a problem with the prybar stiff heavy contour barrel.

By the way, I once owned a 110FP and it was a remarkably accurate rifle. They had decently adjustable triggers.

+1 I still own mine. It's an MOA shooter and my trigger is set to about 3 crisp lbs. Never saw the need for the "accutrigger". The trigger won't go lighter than what I've set it, but for a hunting rifle, it's perfect. I don't want so light I can't feel the trigger through my gloves.

Mine came with integral scope bases and no iron sights. Not sure how long the integral bases were used. They're the Weaver type and I topped the gun with Millett rings and a Weatherby Supreme scope. Great set up.

Mine's in 7mm Rem Mag. It is pretty picky about bullets. It likes Sierra 150 Game Kings and 160 Nosler partitions. Some ammo shoots >4 MOA from this gun, but Sieera 150 Game Kings and the Noslers are 1 MOA consistently C-C. I pulled the wood stock off the gun and put a Ramline on it. This free floated the barrel and eliminated some slight vertical stringing I was getting with it.

Savage has made minor changes to magazines. They also changed the shape of the receiver a few years ago, but basically yes. A pre- accutrigger 110 is essentially the same as a Steven 200.

The changes have made it confusing for Savage owners to figure out which scope mounts or aftermarket stocks to buy, but internally there isn't any real difference.

That price seems a bit high, but maybe not with a varmit contour barrel.

The trigger is pretty much the same. If it's a 3 screw, you can adjust it down, if not you can install an aftermarket trigger, like a timney. It will fit the model 110 long action and the the 10 short action as well as all the Stevens model 200's
