ABSTRACT
This article presents information on guns. The Savage Model 40 is the spiritual descendant of the Savage Model 340. That horrendously ugly, cheap-looking, affordable, and accurate gun was made in both varmint and whitetail calibers, and it was the first centerfire rifle the author has ever bought. The Model 40, however, looks neither ugly nor cheap, and it's close to half the price of a conventional varmint rifle. It employs a medium-heavy, target-crowned, 24-inch sleeved barrel. The stock is laminated, and the trigger is Savage's wonderful AccuTrigger, which on my rifle was set at a flawless 2.2 pounds. The Model 40's lines are pleasing and fit and finish are excellent.
