    It's a 30-06.

    2012 as far as I'm aware. It has "12" stamped on the receiver and barrel next to a stamp of what looks like a little lion (or something) standing up.

    Those CZ's are beautiful, although I'm a Sako guy.

    Where are the CZ's made? I've always wanted one in .22 rimfire.

    Came across an interesting Savage last night.

    Dick's Sporting Goods (yes, them).

    Savage 11 VT 24" heavy barrel, Bushnell 4x12 40mm scope (i believe), on sale for $550, plus another $50 off.

    Any opinions on this package? (not on Dick's)

    That would be a 2012. I guess they must have made some with that more elaborate checker pattern, and I was mistaken thinking that it was only from a few years ago. Gun looks great. Is that a 1907 sling, or something very similar?

    Sako,Tikka,the new FN produced Winchester Models 70s look really sweet. Have a look at CZ 550s too.

    I've never fired one, but from what I've seen I'd expect it to be an accurate gun. Is that a Korean-made Bushnell, one of the ones that retails for about $100 street price? IME, the Bushnells from Korea are good scopes for the money. What caliber are you looking at?

    From what I've read online. Its a special model for Dicks. I just want to make sure its not an odd gun and has interchangeable parts.

    Scope? I believe it's similar to this one. opplanet-bushnell-734120-trophy-xlt-riflescope.jpg

    It's a leather 1907 sling. It's actually a little too short for the rifle. For me to use the sling as intended (half turn, looped over bicep, etc.) the forward most claw on the sling has to be in the last set of punches. It's still a bit too tight even then.

    Edit: I had really poor lighting in the previous pricture I posted. Add a little sunglight and a polarized lens filter and...

    OP, consider CZitis. You're a perfect candidate.

    I can't think of any current production bolt action rifle manufacturer that I would consider a BAD rifle maker. As far as quality and accuracy out of the box, pretty much every new rifle on the racks is pretty darn good.

    Savage or Tikka. Hard call for me
    Ruger
    Marlin
    Remington
    Stevens

    :confused::)Would not Kimber be comsidered high dollar and not really an ordinary rifle? I am just asking because I have only owned 3 Savages and 1 Remington in my lifetime not counting a DCM 1903A3.:)

    I got through the first page of this thread and I was shocked at the mis-information about Savages. Have you people paid attention to the F T/R and F-Class competitions? Those are high end Savages beating the pants off of custom built rifles. None of those other companies being mentioned can point to anything remotely equivalent.

    Yes that caused me to buy a high end Savage and I am amazed at the accuracy.

    So in your estimation, if people are reporting experiences different than yours, it is "misinformation?"
