Savage sold

I am one of the many who find Savage firearms to be a very good buy for the money expended and results obtained. Hopefully the new owners will get back to the older management style and produce arms that will be the equal of those of yesteryear!

The only Savage I ever wanted was a Model 99. Never got one and now I don't need it for anything. So I will likely leave this mortal coil never owning a Savage.

Reading between the lines, part of Vista's motivation for divesting themselves of Savage was getting out of the firearms market to focus on other sporting goods.... because REI said they would stop buying those goods if Vista continued to sell firearms.

Anyway, there's the rest of the story.... apparently Savage is now owned by Savage under the umbrella of Long Range Acquisition LLC.
I'm amazed at how often you can answer industry questions. Industry press? Financial press? Network of secret squirrels?

Very easy it was in the google news feed. When you look up things with google when you go to there news page it uses it to create interest points for articles you would you like

Except for a Model 24 that I have had for many years, I haven't had any Savage rifles until the last several years.

Late in life I have discovered the value of Savage rifles. My Axis and my three Mark II's have been very accurate and were very inexpensive.

I hope Savage continues to make good rifles.

Now that is funny.

Alien Lizard People. They keep me in the loop.

Industry press?
I have an acquaintance with an FFL who throws me his industry magazines now and then. There is usually a tidbit or two in there that opens the door to a little poking and prodding around to get the rest of the story.

Also, it seems like the traditional rifles & shotgun, made in U.S.A., are being replaced by cheaper made foreign firearms, that have more plastic parts, than a toy gun. Even, the ones still produce here are for the most part poorly made when compared to rifles, shotguns, and other firearms made back in the 1950's - 1980, and they are becoming hard to fine and are much sought after much more than the newer ones with their plastic parts, and poor workmanship.
Sad , but true .
