I have a friend with the savage and a cousin with the marlin. Both are fun and accurate, i dont think you can go wrong with either. If you can spare a little more money I would consider the Ruger 77/17 as well

Its just a marlin 917 heavy barrel, the stock is a Boyds tacticool. I duracoated it magpul fde. Boyds sells them for 99 bucks, or midway sells them unfinished for 75 I think. Its a great upgrade to the rifle. There's not a lot of other stocks inletted for the marlin, but im happy with the Boyds.

Yeah, the stock makes a world of a difference, I use my 17 as a trainer rifle for my 308.

So i got to put the savage 93r and the marlin 917 side by side yesterday at cabelas. I really like them both. The savage seems to have a nicer trigger than the marlin. But the marlin has suck a nice oak stock and the bluing is pristine.

If you ever have plans of changing the stock out on the marlin, make sure you get the one with the wood stock. The synthetic has a built in trigger guard, so when you go to replace the stock, you'll have to order a new trigger guard from marlin. Can't go wrong with the marlin or savage. I have the marlin and its a tack driver. I chose to duracoat the barreled action though, I prefer matte over blueing
