Thanks for all the advice.

I'm confused, is this the only gunshop that you are allowed to buy a rifle from? Buy the Howa/Vanguard from another dealer. There are only thousands of FFL's out there eager to sell firearms.

I'd pick a Vanguard/Howa any day of the week over a Savage. Sounds to me as thought your mind was already made up.

Good luck with whatever you get.

The problem you run into though is the center feed actions are relatively new and don't drop right into the old savage staggered feed stocks. Some companies are producing stocks for them already, but the big one is boyd's because they are cheap, and they aren't producing the center feed stocks yet. The want you to take a dremel to a staggered feed savage stock to make the center feed fit
