First off...I'm not trying to start a discussion on who would or wouldn't buy a gun from Dicks Sporting Goods so lets please don't go there!!!
I was at Dicks the other day for the first time since the Sandy Hooks Shooting. Anyway, I saw the new Savage 11VT in .308. The guy said it was exclusively sold at Dicks. It seemed like a pretty nice gun. It was only $499.00 and came with a decent little Bushnell 4x12 scope.
I have been looking for some time now for a cheap entry level precision rifle. I can't seem to decide on the Savage or the Remington SPS Tactical or the SPS Varmit. The Savage is $150.00 cheaper than the SPS Tactical and comes with a scope. Everything I've read about the SPS is that it needs a $200+++ stock to it. I will also have to purchase a scope, rings, and base. The SPS Varmit seems to be a very good shooter and falls around the same price point.
Can anyone chime in on the Savage? How is the stock, trigger, and overall performance of the weapon?
