They are the "economy" line made by Savage. The differences between a Savage and a Stevens is that the Stevens does not come with the Accu-trigger and does come with a cheaper stock.

If you just want a beater rifle to kick around or a super base-level rife to build up Steven's aren't bad at all for the money. Lots of guys buy a stevens just for the receiver and junk the rest. Stock, they will give MOA accuracy with match ammo and a trained shooter. You are not going to turn any heads with it but it will go bang.

And you can use the same aftermarket stock. Yes or No :confused:

I'm looking at a budget .223 hunting target rifle. I Priced this rifle at my local store, $386 out the door, (grey stock, camo $50 more). So, been doing some looking around. Found some helpful info Here:

I would imagine so, There are aftermarket savage triggers that drop right into the Stevens. So, I would think the stock would work? This info is only what I've read while looking for info on this rifle. Have not personally done this.

Check out the marlin xl7 or xs7, it's the same price as the Stevens but sure looks and feel alot better. I walked in to buy a hunting rifle in 25-06 tikka was my pick. I then looked over and notice they had the marlin in 25-06 for the half the price. And since I'm just going to beat it up in the woods I went with the cheaper one. It has a better trigger too.

I originally wanted one of these, but they don't make one in .223 :( That's how I found the Stevens. But, I might be picking one up in the future in 30-06 :D

All I have to say about em is they are "ehhh ok" I wouldn't waste my money on one for anything other than a cheap hunting rifle, For a long range rig I would look elsewhere.

All the parts on the Stevens will interchange with Savage and all the aftermarket Savage parts. A lot of people who build their Savage based competition rifles are actually shooting Stevens actions and after-marketing the rest.

It was made using all of the machinery that they used for making the pre-accutrigger Savage models 10 and 110. The only difference is the color of the stock and the verbage stamped on them. For a basic rifle or the base to build a good custom one, they can't be beat. All of the parts that fit the pre accutrigger models fit these as well. If you look around, you can normally find them for under $300.

Thats what I thinking. Paint the stock, got a cheap scope for it. Use for hunting, plinking and don't mind if it gets a little beat.
