I've organized a bunch of people to buy a rifle for a mutual friend. We're all poor college students and we've managed to rake in approx. $300. I found a guy selling a Savage 110 in 30-06 and unfortunately I know nothing about rifles other than my own 10/22. I need to know as much as I can about this rifle as quickly as possible to see if it's worth the price. The seller is asking $250 for a rifle that, according to him, has just aesthetic flaws... scratches on the stock and minor blue wearing. It seems like a good deal but not many of the people I work with seem to know all that much about it. Any help would be hot...
Thanks!

I'd go with the SOG package for $339.00. Gun Tests (Oct., 2000) Says: "Our recommendation: But it: this $449 package is such a steal, we hate to alert Savage Arms for fear that they'll raise the price" . Yes, the scope is listed as a Simmons 3-9X32. Savage free floats the barrel. Accuracy by Gun Tests was comparable to a Remmington 700BDL and a Ruger 77 MKII also in .223. The package seems to be a sound entry level rifle. No frills, but you get a new rifle for your friend with a short (one year) factory warrenty, sling, and boresighted (Simmons) scope. I'm buying one in .270 for a North Carolina deer gun. Upgrades can be added as determined by your friend's preferences.

Remember, the BATF will have the Purchaser's name linked with the weapon and on file via the FFL form and "instant" background check at the time of actual purchase. This is unfortunate but true.

Good Luck.

Sorry. Typo. That's "Buy it" not "But it"

Again, Best of luck
