    Hey wanted to get an opinon on this rifle:

    http://www.savagearms.com/25model_LightweightVarminter.htm

    I own a Stevens Model 200 in .243 and this would be my next purchase in a .204. I like it - the price is right - I'm able to pick it up for around $440 OTD.

    I know Savage has a great reputation and one can't go wrong with the accu-trigger :)

    Thanks!!

    Can't change the barrel when you get tired of the caliber. I'd rather have another Stevens, or a Model 11. In fact, there was a Sponsor on the Savageshooters forum selling some closeout Model 12 FVXPs in 204, with a Simmons 4-12 scope, for $445.

    I have the little brother of the model 25 the model40 varmint hunter in 22 hornet, it is a well made accurate rifle, and pleasing to the eye. The newer 25 is a scaled up version of the 40 which was a scaled up version of the MKII rimfire action.
    When the word came out on the 40 it was to be chambered in.223rem. but Savage found reason not to do so.So I guess they waited for the 25 for the higher pressure .204 and.223. it also has a box mag where the predecessor 40 is a single shot. The way the bbl. is mated to the extra long reciever, is a plus as it serves to dampen vibration for greater accuracy. I wish I could have waited the extra 3 yrs for the, .204 chambering, but I have grown real fond of the hornet chambering.
    If you decide to spring for the 25 let us know haow it works out!
