Searching for a particular Stevens rifle; did I dream it?

    I thought I read about this rifle sometime in the last month, but it's also been a month of less than perfect sleep and some intense dreams ;)

    Can sometime tell me, is there a Savage/Stevens .223 single-shot bolt-action plinking / hunting rifle in .223?

    I *thought* I'd read about this on Gunblast.com, and my memory includes reading a description (from the reviewer) of how surpisingly easy it was to insert single rounds, comparing it favorably to the small-cap magazines that hunting rifles typically have.

    The closest I could actually find though in going through the gunblast archives is a review of this (4-shot capacity) gun:

    Now, I am not currently in the market for anything else on my credit card, thanks, but it's been bugging me that I can't find the model I "read about" so recently. I also would probably rather own a 4-shot gun than a single-shot, but when the time comes that I decide on a centerfire rifle, single shot might be just fine for my plinking purposes. Not much can go wrong with a single-shot bolt-action rifle ;)

    If it was a dream, then so be it, but I'd like to know!

    Cheers,

    I honestly can't recall one. I'm usually pretty up on the esotoric and the odd ball. I hope somebody else can come up with a definative answer. Essex

    Is it the precision varminter? Where the ejection port is on the left, but the bolt is on the right. I read an article on this rifle and the guy was saying how easy it was to load, and he was really suprised how quickly he could reload.

    The precision varmintier is the only one that I can think of. They now have the new "target" actions with accutriggers adjustable from 6 oz to 1 1/2 pounds, I would get an action with correct bolt head, add .223 barrel and a good stock, and all of a sudden a super- accurate savage.

    There is no such thing as a single shot stevens btw.

    I bet you're all right about the 12 Series Varmint ;)

    This must have been a case of wishful dreaming ;)

    I think my brain has confused the quick-loading-single-shot 12 Series w/ the cheaper, synthetic-stocked Stevens 200.

    However, thinking about has certainly made me start allocating more of my imaginary money for something in this general category -- the Stevens 200 looks like a fantastic gun for the money; with my eyes and shaky hands, I suspect the accuracy and trigger of the Savage single shot would be wasted on me anyhow.
