My friend got an older left hand Savage 12 223 on trade at his shop.It's in pretty nice shape and doesn't look like it was shot much. It's a pre-accutrigger model,and has a new model Redfield 3-12x44 scope with (I think) Talley rings and bases.This scope has some decent glass in it,I was surprised how clear it is. The older LH model 12's had a blued receiver and a 26" fluted stainless barrel. I'm not sure on the twist,but I think it is 1-9 or 1-8 on this model. I traded him my Saiga 223 with scope and extra mags and an older Nikon Monarch that came off my Ruger #1. I'll get some pics in a day or two,and try to load up some ammo and try it out in a few days.
