Savage 'Hog Hunter' Rifle
« on: February 10, 2012, 12:11:52 AM »
Was just reading a a little bit on this rifle, haven't found much so far. But what I have read and watched sounds very interesting. Available in .308, has irons, and is threaded. Dimensions, barrel length, and weight read well. With an MSRP of $513.00, I'm thinking and hoping I could pick one up for a good price. Could be a 'buy' for me.
Especially since I might have a chance at going after some hogs down here this year. Would have liked a detachable mag option, but that's not a deal breaker. You never know, someone might come up with an after market magazine kit and stock with a well. Anyone seen/handled/fired one yet? Still searching for reviews and more info on this new offering...

Savage Arms - 11/111 Hog Hunter

I like this one too. If you want something similar with a detachable may look at the Ruger Scout. I have had one since they came out and I like it especially with the new mags for it that are more compact and under $30.

They have detachable mag conversions for the savage, so you get a better rifle with a more accurate barrel and better trigger....

I'm just wondering about factory magnum ammo in a 20" barrel.
Looks like these will cry out for a well researched handload.
