Savage 220 20 gauge

I have a Ultra Slugger and like it but it is a little heavy to carry all day.I'm thinking of going to the Savage 220 and have an opportunity to buy a 1 year old one for 400.00.Any opinions good or bad? Thanks.

Re: Savage 220 20 gauge

I bought one new for that price. Does it have a scope, mounts or extra mag? A few extras would make it a good deal.

If your in SE PA call Tanners in Jamison, PA. He had a used one and a few new ones. You could get an idea of the current going price.

BTW they are great slug guns.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

Re: Savage 220 20 gauge

absolut40, what finish is it?

I own both the H&R Ultra Deluxe and the Savage 220f, both have the Leupold VX-II 3-9x40, both shooting the Remington Accutips 3", within 130/150 yds they are very similar as far as accuracy but over the 150 yds the Savage just out shoots the H&R. Both are excellent, but my vote goes to the Savage.

reasons:
Handles/shoulders like a rifle
trigger is great
light weight
3 shots (1 only needed)

If your right hand and you get a scope with a 40mm bell for the Savage, please look into the DNZ One Piece mounts, part# 18200, it's of medium height and has perfect bolt clearance. Also if by chance the bolt seems rough, do what I did I had the bolt and the bolt rails lapped and it did help make it smoother...I have owned my 220f for 5 or 6 yrs and I love it

When I purchased mine it only came in the black stock/blue barrel, I had my stock Hydro Dipped 2 yrs ago

Before/after:




Here is my group at 100 yds, it's the group on the solid orange line above dead center



Any questions about this shotgun, please ask

It's the blued barrel and black synthetic stock.It doesn't come with a scope or any other extras so after reading your reply i think it's a little high.

Thanks for the info and the pics.I have a Leupold 1 to 4 power shotgun scope that i was going to put on it but that might change after reading your recommendation.I have yet to hear anything bad about the Remington acccutips so i might be giving them a try.Thanks again for the info.

Re: Savage 220 20 gauge

I agree $400 for a used one with the standard finish is high in price

Re: Savage 220 20 gauge

What do you think a fair price would be?
