243 Savage Striker

  • Does anyone own one of the Savage Striker's.  I have one in 243, it has the muzzle brake and it shot fairly well.  What would a person expect to get out of this gun if he were to try to sell it.
    Thanks,
    Dave T

  • The thing about the striker is people want them just for the action. You can screw any caliber barrel you want on to it. Put a good Rife Basix trigger on it and they really shoot.

  • Yes it is stainless and I'd say it may have 100 rounds shot through it and 2506 just as you said, I have considered building a gun around the action.  Why did Savage stop making these, just didn't catch on?

  • I don't think the Striker was a real good seller for Savage when they brought it out. Their triggers were awful. If they would start making it again and put their accutrigger on it and make it a rear grip with a good stock it would probably do pretty good now. The handgun hunting long range shooting is growing more these days. Plus there are a lot of after market stuff for Savage now.

  • I bought a Striker in 243 and it shot fairly good, but after I bedded the action it now shoots real good.
