    I have been looking around trying to decide on a rifle to purchase. I have been to nearly a dozen stores trying to learn everything that I can and watching price tags as I go.

    The best value that I can find is at Bimart (It is a chain located in the northwest).

    They have Savage rifles in several different calibers (30-06, 243, etc) for $359, and are now advertising $30 off this week. These come with a sholder strap and a scope.

    I do not want to advertise for Bimart, these prices are just much lower than I have seen anywhere else. My fear is that I will "get what I paid for" I do not want to buy garbage.

    Does anyone out there have any experience with these rifles. I would really appreciate any advice that you can give.

    Thank you

    I have a 116 in .30-06. I love it. My dad has a patriot arms revelation so seeing both ends of the spectrum I can tell you this thing is awesome. Had work done to it by S&S and I can reliably take it out to 800 yards hitting sub 5 inch groups consistently.

    no difference, they do the same thing wally does, buy a billion of them to save on costs.

    There have been similar arguments that walmart has lower quality rifles than you local gun store, also very untrue.

    .

    Thats the Savage package deal.....Excellent Value for starters and with the $30 off I would buy 2. Comes with something like a $30 Simmons 3x9x40 disposable scope..... Local prices are $347 at Walmart, Local gun shops $440 to $550..... Maybe on a good day and a little luck I could pick one up for $326 tax free on CLNC...... I got my last one at Bass Pro for around $500 because they had the only one I was looking for and needed at the time....

    Buy it Shoot it!!!
    Upgrade the scope
    shoot it!!!
    up grade the trigger
    Shoot it!!
    Maybe a better barrel and a Stock change

    But on the average it will be a great deal out of the box;)

    It's the same Savage you would buy at any retail outlet. Bimart sale price is hard to beat. Go to Sportsman outlet on 82nd and see the same rifle for 80-100 more.

    Two people in our Deer hunting camp have bought the Bi Mart Savages in the last few years. They won't win a beauty contest and the scope is kind of cheap and so so. But they do seem to work ok from the two I have been around.
