Default Traded for another Savage today

My friend got an older left hand Savage 12 223 on trade at his shop.It's in pretty nice shape and doesn't look like it was shot much.
It's a pre-accutrigger model,and has a new model Redfield 3-12x44 scope with (I think) Talley rings and bases.This scope has some decent glass in it,I was surprised how clear it is.
The older LH model 12's had a blued receiver and a 26" fluted stainless barrel. I'm not sure on the twist,but I think it is 1-9 or 1-8 on this model.

I traded him my Saiga 223 with scope and extra mags and an older Nikon Monarch that came off my Ruger #1.

I'll get some pics in a day or two,and try to load up some ammo and try it out in a few days.

Very nice.

If you cared about us you'd post some pics and a range report.

You gonna make us wait again?

Some of us don't have regular work days or hours.But I will try to get some pics taken for you.
I won't be going to the range for a couple weeks,I got stuff to do at the deer lease.

So the answer to your question is YES!!!!!! You gotta wait.

Alright,Just for M14Rocks-Here's some pictures of the rifle.

Left Hand Savage Model 12,223 caliber-Redfield 3-12x44 scope with Talley rings and bases.





I'm not really fond of Talley vertical split rings,they are a real pain to install or adjust a scope without ruining the finish on a scope.I see a 1pc rail,and Burris Zee rings in the near future.

The Redfield scope is a nice scope,but the tube length isn't long enough to mount my ND3 Laser on,so off it came and on went a Mueller Eraticator.I have one of these on my RRA AR15 and love it.

While cleaning,I measured the twist rate-1/9 twist.
I have also measured the chamber,and loaded up some test loads.I'll try to get to the range tomorrow,and see how it shoots.

Much better......

And I agree about the Talleys. Pretty, but a pain.

Cool beans Tx

But what's the deal with the first post and you saying I'll have to load up some rounds?

What kind of Texan are you to not have at least 10,000 in a bunker ready to go?
