Heads up, Stevens 200 (Savage) on sale at Academy for $199
« on: December 19, 2009, 10:25:35 pm »
Just FYI...

The other day I was browsing Academy's flyer.  They have a good deal on Stevens 200 bolt action rifles, in .270 and 7mm-08, for $199. 

For those of you that don't know, the Stevens 200 is Savage's "value" bolt action rifle.  It's exactly the same as any other Savage bolt action rifle (110/10 and variants) on the market today except it lacks the "Accutrigger" and "Accustock," which are recent developments anyway.  It's not pretty to look at, with a matte blue finish, and cheap tan-grey plastic stock, but at $199 you can't beat it.

Yeah, I wanted to go get one... I didn't know which I would get though. Always wanted a 7mm-08, but I do love the .270 too.  :-\ I think the sale ended today maybe?

Be careful buying an aftermarket stock for a new Savage or Stevens rifle.  Savage recently switched from a staggered feed magazine design to a "center feed" design.  Most aftermarket stocks will be for the old stagger feed design.  They're not interchangeable.

There's nothing wrong with the stock on the Stevens. It's that way for a reason; part of what I imagine to be the philosophy behind the rifle. This weapon is a tool to be used.
