About 2 months ago, I bought the Savage/Stevens 350 Security, (Ithica mod. 37 clone). There weren't any 982s in stock at the time, which is what I still intend to buy. The. 350 is well appointed as it comes, which is a good thing since after-market stuff is almost non-existant. But the Ithica 37 had such a great reputation, I thought why not both? I'm very glad I got the Stevens 350, but look forward to being able to re-configure the 982 to different tasks by changing bolt-on components.
