they are a low end budget version of the ruger m77 line. i would say after handling one they are the best of the low budget lineup. that being said i have no place in my safe for any of the ones mentioned. if i was looking at that price range i would either save a few more sheckles or look at a better gun in a used format.

I looked at the American and was not impressed with the bolt and action. I thought the bolt was too loose and had chances to stick. The savage was very smooth. That's what made my decision on buying the savage.

I am however looking at a red field scope. Any ideas on a good scope that won't break my bank. Lol. I c that they can go any where from 30 bucks to 1200 and more.

Also check out Barska. I got a 6-24x50 for $100 (just below MSRP). Its on my 300 win mag so it it very shock proof, never had it fog or smudge, made of very good materials too. I make 1/2MOA accuracy with that scope on.

I've had a Redfield 4-12 accurange on my 30-06 for about three years with no issues. I got a good deal on it and has served me very well. It even shacked up with my 338WM while I was shopping for scopes.....it handled the recoil just fine. I guess they have a new line out called the revenge but I know nothing about them.
