    looking into one of these for my younger brothers first gun, I've heard good things about Savage in general, but nothing about this particular rifle. It's on sale at Big 5 for $139.99 which is my exact price range (wish I had more to spend on the guy) It also comes with a scope and mount. Some opinions please!

    I haven't owned one. but from what i read they are a good rifle. I have a savage 17hmr that i love. it is a great squirrel gun.

    If $140 is your max, then i would go with the savage. If you can swing a few more dollars, Bi-marts in the portland area have 10/22s on sale for $177 right now. The 10/22 would be a better gun in the long run for your brother.

    So if $140 (150) after background is max get the savage, but if you can swing $190, it is a better rifle and could be upgraded for future birthdays.
