Savage 204 ruger
Hello all, i'm new here, and I have a question. I am new to hunting but for $500 I was offered a savage model 12 204 ruger with a heavy barrel and accutrigger.short action. a 6-24x50 scope and a bipod. Is it worth it?

What are you going to be hunting?

What kind of scope is it?

boomroasted 04-06-2011 08:53 PM

just small game. woodchucks stuff like that. I'm just unsure of how much the gun actually is worth. I did some google searching and theres difference prices so I cant really get an accurate price for myself as i'm fairly new to guns and hunting.

Lots of need to knows here, Just what model 12 savage is it ? there are several variations. Try Savage's website for a general idea of new value, you usually pay less than their suggested retail. has lots of used guns listed. This might give you a ballpark idea of value. As to the scope, what is the brand ? value is largely based on whether the scope is from a manufacturer know for making good scopes, Leupold, Nikon, Burris etc. or a company that sells low end stuff like Barska, BSA, NC Star Etc. The bipod's value is also dependent on manufacturer. If you can be more specific I am sure you will get a lot of help and advice here. Hope this helps.

ok thanks ron, good points. I'll see what I can get for info and post back asap

I asked if there was any letters to it. he said just a model 12 varmint, $75 bipod and a fairly cheap scope NC Star

can anyone else help me out here?

lonyaeger 04-07-2011 12:33 AM

Ron gave you good advice. I can tell you that the NcStar scope is worth next to nothing. The bipod isn't worth much either. Have you looked at for similar models like Ron suggested?

yeah i check it out a little bit. I didn't see any exact guns, but i think its close to what i should be paying, but am unsure

Still a lot of variables that could enter in, but I would offer him $400 and see if he bites. Up to $500 probably wouldn't be bad, depending on the condition.

Most of the members here will try to help you help yourself rather than do the research for you. :)
