The Savage Scout is not considered a true Scout rifle, but it was in production for several years, and it has its proponents. With a 20" barrel, an overall length of 40", and weighing in at 7/5 lbs, it certainly doesn't rigidly meet Col Cooper's criteria, But, it certainly looks like a handy rifle, and is probably eminently shootable.
Savage didn't catalog them last year, and nowadays if you want one, they're a custom proposition. I know how shootable Savage rifles are, having several in the family. The Accutrigger is wonderful, and now Savage has the AccuStock, which I've been interested in trying out. So, several months ago when I saw a Savage Scout on the rack of a local shop, I decided to put it on layaway. I finalized the deal yesterday, and haven't really had an opportunity to do more than simply take a quick first glance at it, but so far, I like what I see.
Williams WGRS. It's a perfectly rugged, durable, well-known peep sight. The rifle sports a detachable box magazine, the AccuStock and Accutrigger. The bolt handle has a smooth, oversized knob. The recoil pad is soft and thick. The caliber, of course, is .308 Winchester.
Next month, I'll order a scope for it. I've been wanting to play with the Scout concept, and now I have the rifle to accomplish that task. If I find that I don't like the forward scope, it will be a simple matter to change it to a standard mount. Either way, I think I'm going to like this rifle a lot.
