    My only question is on the price. What's the total after fees and shipping etc?

    Scratch,

    Not a reason in the world not to buy it other than you might check out some pricing first to see if anyone has it for less. However you must figure in transfer and shipping if you get it from other places.
    Obviously if it is here in Tennessee or an adjoining state you can just go pick it up. I was not sure if the dealer you mentioned is close? If not usually one will charge fro $25-$35 to do a transfer for you. And Shipping will be around $35.00 within a reasonable distance from our Great State!
    But the rifle itself would be a fine rifle for you and the Accutrigger is a fine trigger.:D

    I'd order it through my local shop. I just posted the link for a good description. I could probably get it for a little over $700 & then add about $200 for a scope, bipod, & sling.

    Well without doing any price checking I'd say you are looking at a great gun at a decent price.

    Make sure you clean well after use that's all. The surplus has corrosive primers.
    It's 308 though. The calibers are close but not the same. I would do some research before putting 7.62 through it.

    looks ok except for all those accuracy features seem irrelevent without a bull barrel

    i could find a lot better guns to blow 700 bucks on i bought a very lightly used ruger a year or two back and put a thumbhole stock on it for less than that.... and ya should figure at least 400 bucks for a decent scope

    how much shooting do you intend to do?? thin hunting profile barrels you only get 3-4 shots before heat becomes a factor in accuracy.

    if most of your shooting is target and plan to do stationary hunting you might want a heavier barrel. if your going to do more stalking about the country side and dont mind waiting for the barrel to cool then lighter barrel is good.

    just depends on your usage and the negative you dont mind dealing with

    I agree with you there, our M240's had to be cleaned right after shooting. I checked out a few forums & it's mostly a light grey area supposedly between brands. I wasn't sure if Savage is one of those.
