Hi, new Guy here. I am from Everett wa. And looking to geting my first ever gun and hunting rifle. I have narrowed it down to 2 that I like. Both are 30-06,both bolt action and both are on consignment. Both to me have +/- that I will point out. 1) husquvarna high power. +) lighter, very smooth natural action, comes with a soft case and a box of ammo. And from what I have read is the action is based off of the moser (sp?) 96 and the "high power" was there near top o line. Also the stock is in a little bit better shape. Gun shop Guy recommended it. -) only 4x fixed scope ($$?), $325, the safety is very hard and awkward to use and because of it the scope needs to be set up higher (harder to see out of?) . Trigger doesn't seem quite comfortable but with that said, I don't have much experience with guns so I might end up liking it.lol 2) remmington 1917 +) $260, action also very nice and precise it kinda pops out on its own when you open the action. Much better scope, variable to 8x. Safety is much smoother and natural to me, trigger is more natural. -) stock is more used, the bolt lever seems really close to my hand(good,bad??). And it is much heaver, if I had to guess....a better part of a pound or two? I would have to get a case, ammo. Well their ya have it. These are the best guns I ve come across in my price range. So what ya think?
