Great gun. I actually own that .270, and it is a great gun, especially for that price.
Good groupings, and reliable. No misfires.

Thanks for all the input everyone, I ended up with the Stevens model 200 in the 308. I may end up replacing the trigger assembly later with the Accu trigger, but we'll have to see how things go for now. I am also looking at a few of the Howa models in another caliber........You can never have enough guns, horsepower or ammunition!!!!!!

you might want to check, and i might be wrong, but i'm thinking the triggers are different between the Stevens and the Savage. i think i read somewhere else that they were not interchangeable. just something to check out.

I'll check in after we get a chance to sight in and get some rounds down range. You may be right about the trigger assemblies, but there are two assemblies available, I'll check in to it and get back with the names

Non Accu-Trigger assemblies WILL NOT INTERCHANGE with the Accu-Trigger assemblies because the lower receiver is designed differently for each. You will need to look to an aftermarket trigger manufacturer for a lighter trigger, or if you know how to use/find/install lighter trigger springs these will work and also some "fine polishing" of the sear/hammer engagement will also work. Also if you have or know of a local gunsmith, they might help you with getting a good trigger pull for a couple bucks.

My Stevens 200 came with an adjustable trigger. There is a set screw on the trigger spring but you have to remove the stock, pretty easy. I doubt if they have changed in the last year. I had to stiffen mine up, it was a little to light after shooting the Mosin most of my range time.

The stevens 200 my buddy just brought me to have me adjust the trigger on adjusts just like my marlin x7. Remove the stock and VERY slowly and in small increments losen the nut and then the bolt till it fits you. Just dnt take it past the stop. His stevens by the way is in 270 and it shoots pretty good once we shot some of my home loads through it. My marlin shoots a little better but thats to be expected since the loads were made up for it.
