Alright... I got a gun stolen last year and I want to replace it... I had a rmington 30.06 700 adl... it was an older gun but shot real well
I have gone out looking and I am not in a position to spend a lot of cash right now so I am bargain shopping...
I looked at those remington's with the synthetic stock that come already with a scope and the action of those seems crappy to me...
Then I looked at a Stevens...I am not familiar with this gun but the action was smooth...and to me comparable to one of the remmy's with a higher sticker price...
Anybody know anything about Steven's????

I have a Stevens 200 and they are a great gun for the money. However, they are not the same game as a Remington ADL if comparing old-school budget guns to new-school budget guns.

Bottom line is that the Stevens is nothing pretty but is very accurate and provides a no frills hunting tool that will deliver when you need it to. You just have to look beyond the plastic follower, stock and trigger guard.

Have you thought about a Savage Arms? I remember Stevens shotguns but never seen or shot Stevens rifles.

Stevens is now the same rifle as the Savage minus the Accu-trigger.

A used Remington 700 ADl or SPS would be a money friendly choice.

Oh I agree with that...it is just finding one that is for sale and money friendly enough at this time...
I have looked at the savage...I am not looking to spend more than about $350 and I don't even know where that is going to come from...

What about the Mossberg ATR line? Has anyone used these?

The first ones they came out with were dogs, but I think they have improved them....................
