Savage 110
 
Ok, my FFL has, im assuming his, an old Savage 110 chambered 30-06 with a bi-pod and scope. It's only had approx. 150 round shot through it. Now I'm unclear of the scope brand and power; its sight unseen. However, this guy doesnt really look at selling Arms as a profit; he's a retired state trooper. So, im pretty sure its in decent shape. He takes care of his guns.

He is asking $450. With the limited knowledge given does this price sound good?

May be somewhere in the ballpark, depending on condition, and depending on the scope. In this case, a LOT would depend on the scope. Is it a $49 walMart special (made in slave labor factory # 279) or is a a higher $$$ bit of glass?

I agree with C3. If it has a good quality scope and Quality Name Brand Rings on it like a Leupold, Nikon or other top of the line scope and mounts it is a decent buy. If it has a cheap scope on it that is a little high. And then you have to consider the condition. Look at the face of the Bolt at the firing pin hole. With only 150 rounds fired through it the finish on the bolt should still be in tact and not show hardly any signs of wear. If it shinny then you know the rest of the story. Good Luck!

I`m a Savage fan and have several 110`s. I would give $ 200 for the rifle and tell you to keep the scope. I do only buy cheap ones. If it were a Leupold Vari X 11 I would pay $ 400 for it. The by-pod is worth another $ 40 to $ 60 depending on brand and height. You should have not trouble getting $ 250 to $ 275 for the rifle only. At least here in Ohio at the gun shows I`ve been going to.

Savage rifles that predate about 4-5 years ago stay AWAY from them. The newer production rifles are fantastic. The older stuff is total junk. That is the 1980's 90's and early 2000's

That explains why I don't like mine as much as everyone else likes their

I didn't know of any difference other than the accutrigger, which is very nice.

My 110 from the early 80's could not possibly be a better gun. Nice walnut with cut checkering and 3" groups at 400 yards. What else could you want?
