Re: Svage 30 30 325a
Agreed on the Weaver mount system. I have two sets of rings for my Savage M340 in 22 Hornet. It came with a Weaver K2.5, but I later bought a higher set of Weaver rings to use a 4x12x40 scope on it. The original K2.5 is back on it now.
From what I can tell from reading, only minor differences in the Savage 340 and Stevens 325. Apparently there was also a Springfield variant in 30-30 only?
My M340 was used when I bought it in 1964. Walnut stock, uncheckered. Years later a cousin got a new one in 222 and they're pretty much identical, except his stock has pressed checkering and is probably birch?
About the only 30-30 repeater that's in the same price class these days as the M340, are the Savage M170 pumps.
