I like the savage with the acutrigger. Best bang for the buck IMHO.
F.K.

In that price range I don't think he can get the accutrigger. If you can find a Savage with an accutrigger for $180 that is a pretty good price. If the choice is between a non-accutrigger Savage and a Marlin I'd go with the Marlin. Read some reviews though.

The Marlin XT series has the Marlin version of an adjustable accutrigger
Also has a heavy barrel target version...still inexpensive!

Plus...Boyd's carries several laminate stocks for the Marlin 800-900 series that also fit the XT with a little material taken out for the trigger assembly.

....not trying to track you down on every XT related thread Shrek, but figured I'd say I here to as well. Haha

I'm not to sure that a heavy target barrel would be needed to get tighter groups at all. The standard one seems to hold up fairly well under large amounts of rounds being sent down range fairly quick.

If you buy used i would like to recomend the marlin 25n. You can purchase one used for under 150.00 and shoot live .22 rounds at 25 yards consistancy with a cheap scope. The trigger can be tuned to about 2lbs using only a pen spring found at wallmart.

I have a Savage Mark 2F and it is a great weapon. Even without the accutrigger, it has a very crisp, and light trigger pull. It also is dead accurate with a little 4x32 bushnell scope, and its still pretty accurate with iron sights. My only complaint is the iron sights are small, and black on black, so somewhat hard to see during sunsets, and especially after the sun goes down. I'm pretty sure you could buy a simple aftermarket front sight fairly cheaply though, just so you can have some contrast. Also, the mags are sort of a small banana mags, so until you put 500-1000 rounds through it those will give you problems. Once you break it in however it becomes an incredibly smooth, lihht
