I bough this gun and wish I hadn't
I per-ordered this gun with out seeing it in person. I guess that was my
first mistake. I relied on my experience I have with my 93 in 17 hmr.
Which is my most favorite small caliber gun. I did not have the same
experience with the hog hunter.
When I got the box in my hand i was so excited, I per-ordered this gun
about 6 weeks ago. It came in earlier than I expected. My first let down
was that my gun was just in the box without any plastic sleeve like
many of my other new guns have come with. I noticed that the receiver
had made contact with the box and rubbed the matte finish off. Then I
noticed that the bolt head was rusted. I cleaned it a little, then I
stopped. Realizing that I should be cleaning the rust off a new gun.
Then the worst of the worst. The stock, It is a much lighter color than
what is shown on the website. Not only that. The injection molding marks
are horrible. I have many guns with syn stocks. If the time is taken,
you have a great stock, This stock has sloppy injection molding marks
all over it. It looks like a cheap Chinese toy. Not only that. The stock
is crooked,....I know they will not be perfect. This can't be normal.
This is so far off,....I just don't have words..... I am so
disappointed. I had pre-ordered a base, rings, a nice nikon 3x9x50 and
am even have JP making a custom break for this gun because I got it in
338.....I'm at a loss for words. Is this typical for Savage?
