Anyone else have a thing for the 340?
« on: January 31, 2018, 12:04:17 PM »

I got a 90+% 340 carbine in .30-30 not too long ago. I haven't had time to shoot it.
 Anyone have experience with these?
 I think I'm going to fall in love with this little devil!

Like most Savages, the earlier they are, the better they look.  But they all work, including the Western Auto marked ones (840???), and the three I've had all were more accurate than I or most people expected, especially the fairly early walnut stocked .222 Remington version.  And they are an interesting design that somewhat prefigures the 110 series, which have, for good reasons, been a great success for Savage.  The treinta-treinta versions like yours have killed a bunch of deer over the years.
