Gonna give you a bit of friendly harassment and a congratulations.


You showed up looking for the equivalent to a sporty little red car with a manual, maybe like a miata or Toyota mr2. Folks threw out ideas from f150 to Bugatti veyron as is so often the case on forums, and you ended up with the equivalent to a silver Toyota camry sedan.....

Kudos on that, forums often talk folks into the Bugatti or f150 platinum.....

Whelp. I couldn't let go of the 783. Backwards safety and all, so I committed a sin. I stripped off all of the crappy old 70's finish, and refinished it. What a lovely piece of timber!

I need to clean up and condition that leather sling, and I may mill the dovetail off and d/t for a set of talleys.

It was about $350 after taxes, shipping and FFL.

As soon as I can find scope bases for the darn thing(Talley Savage 93 rings bases don't work), I'll let you know how it shoots! Sidney and Kearney Cabela's had nothing(big surprise), and I couldn't scratch up anything online(shocker). So I'll have to see if Savage themselves will sell me some, or try to find some back in Wyoming when I get home, or I'll have to make some. Ridiculous!

The varmint barreled versions come with them. Looks like their rifles with sights do not come with bases. I'd pay an extra $10 to get the bases included.

Ordered weaver #16's hopefully they work!

Whelp, got the Savage tuned in. Surprisingly, it put several 5rd groups of dyna point(trying to burn it up) in around 1.5"! For those of you who have shot dynas before, you know why that was exciting! The maxi mags did better, all around an inch. Some a little over, some a little better, but more or less an inch. Which is kind of what I was expecting.
Also, was expecting terrible feeding from the magazine, and this gun did not disappoint! Feeding from any of these Savage stamped metal magazines is enough to really force you to stave off the sweet release of death! Savage 93 magazines are the bane of my existence!

But, I'm going to address that. It's light and handy and darn near bullet proof. For the money I paid, I love it.

I just happen to handle a 93 FSS the other day for $329 and thought of this thread. It sure doesnt feel like a 21 inch barrel being so light.

They also a a B22 LR compact. The only B22 they had. I thought the bolt was very smooth and i liked the ergonomics of the new stock and the feel of the grip better as its slightly more vertical. Of course the flush magazine is much nice. They had a 93 minimalist 22 mag and it felt real handy. I didnt like the extended mag. Wish the 18 threaded sporter barrel came in the B22 series. Hoping to find a 22mag FV stainless and an FVSR to compare. There was also a ruger american 16in 17 hmr on the rack as well. I thought boy that would be a light and handy beater gun. Which makes me wonder what the B22 fvsr would be like. Appears to be a thinner barrel than the 93 FVSR. I once held the 93 and it was too front heavy imo.
