Looking to buy my Father In Law a 223 gun for Christmas for him to use as a varmit gun. I'm looking at the Remington 700 ADL and the Savage 10/11 model. Looking for black synthetic stock and would like to get a package deal with a scope included. How does the Remington and Savage compare to one another?
Savage, hands down no questions asked. I have had so much poor luck with Remingtons since the turn of the century. Poor design/quality, breaking(in shotguns) I've swore them off. I have been nothing but happy with the couple Savage rifles I've picked up. My 223 is a great gun, drives tacks and never had a problem with it.
Oh, and to counter Dasher, I've boycotted S&W/TC. Since they merged and they dumped the flintlock line and all support
Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.
Good... Bad... I'm the guy with the gun.
