My question is what is sportization to a rifle?
well, they may be okay rifles to start with generally i recommend a bolt action as a starter rifle. but its up to you.
also, if you live in states like CA, NY, and others you wil not as of right now be able to buy either of those rifles you mentioned.

Simply put it is generally cutting down a rifle to make it more maneuverable for hunting etc. this is often done at the cost of the value of the gun.
along with that^ it also means changing stocks, adding an optic to a generally optic less rifle.
I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.
