I know a few on here have got them...how do they shoot??? Anyone got an Accustock model???
 
I went to the gun shop thats got my Mark II on order and whilst I was there I asked about the 10 FLCP-K...I can get that gun over here for the same price as a Remington SPS Varmint or a CZ527 (both in left-handed).

    They used to be made with a 20" barrel, no muzzle break and a tupperware stock and that is the model I have and out of the box it was sub moa. Now that it is in a much better stock shooting sierra 150 hpbt matchkings it is consistantly around .5@100. I have it in both calibers and am glad I have the older model but only because I am not a big fan of the breaks.
  Reading on one of the Savage forums puts the newer model about half way inbetween and the comments on the new stock run around 50/50.

I've got a model 11 in .204 with synthetic stock.  It seems pretty good to me, but I have NOT mearsured it for accuracy.  It sighted-in just fine though.  I really like the accutrigger!

I bought a model 11 with walnut stock in 270 WSM 2 years ago for hunting whitetail.  Out of the 5 deer I've taken with it, 4 were dead before they hit the ground and the 5th went about 15 yards.  I really like that calibre.  Only thing I don't like is that the clip in the savages (magnums) only holds 2 rounds but that just makes you concentrate more on the first shot.

The SPS Varmint and the CZ527 is cash only price from one of the big gun shops where I live while the 10 FLCP-K I can layby and pay off over a month. This deal is from a small shop where I got my Ruger and that Savage I got on order.

I had a look at a Savage 10 FCP (no -K???) in .308 yesterday when getting my CZ sorted. Looks good, metal finish was good and the Accustock fore-end does not even flex one bit! Thunbs Up

 AK the K only designates the muzzle brake. Personaly I would rather not have it anyway. You looked at my picture post and everyone of them is sub moa and not one is bedded.

The one I saw and held said FCP on the price label but it had a muzzle break so it was a FCP-K hence the question marks. Still tossing up whether to get the 10 FLCP-K or a 14 American Classic.

I have two Savages so far!  A 270Win in the old synthetic stock and a 223 with a lamy thumbhole.  both have accu-triggers and are sub-MOA out of the box untuned.  FYI, I have been watching / waiting for the new Savage Long Range hunter 111LRH in 300WinMag to hit the stores and I just received an email from my local shop saying they now have it in stock for under $800USD delivered.  It is pretty similar to those your looking at but has a blind mag or hinged floor plate, no box mag.  It also has fluted bull barrel and adjustable brake, accu-stock and accu-trigger.
 
I am totally bummed that my finances suck right now and I can't afford it!

You are looking at the same rifle that I am going to get- someday!  I was supposed to get the Savage FCP-K in .308 for Christmas but had a slight financial change of plans.
 
I have several Savage rifles.  Very accurate.  Can't wait to get the FCP-K.

Hey Tip.

How come you don't want that .204 any more?

Sell it to me I say, happier you will be.

Those FLCP-K are sweet, kinda hard to find at the price I got the 111LRH 300 WIN MAG.
For the time being I will top it with a Vortex Crossfire 6-24X50.  It will be my second crossfire.  At $99.95 the only reason not to buy one is not having a gun to put it on!!!
 
I am torn between the SS variable and a Vortex Viper 6-24X50 FFP.  I really like the SS and at the price point Chris set there really isn't much to challenge it.  I just want a litte more magnification than 3-9, 6-24 would be perfect!  Finances being what they are it'll be a while before I can afford what I want in optics.  I have been concentrating on get the guns I want more than the glass.  I now have a 223, 270 Win, 308 Win and 300 Win Mag  all bought new in the last 14 months!  I don't have a choice at this point but to let the C-cards recover!
