    I would call it , for it's price , as near perfection as you can get. Totally utilitarian, rugged, made to beat up, you can make the trigger as light as you want in about 15 minutes, nicely accurate, light, handy, and of course a nice savage bbl. About the only better deal out there for a true beat em up, is a Mosin.

    I have the Savage with the AccuTrigger. I like it real well, but mine has sights. For the money they ask for the Stevens, GO FOR IT.
