Savage, as nearly as I can see, is the pre-eminent rifle, both in pure factory form and as the basis for custom guns. I can't think of anything equivalent in the shooting sports. If you walk down the firing line, the overwhelming majority of what you see will be out-of-the-box Savages or modified Savages, or true custom rifles built on the Savage Model 10 action. If you're interested, a Model 10 action costs around $600, and there's no end of aftermarket parts with which you can modify it. A true custom F-Class action, like the Stiller, or the Deviant, which I would buy just for the name, runs from $1,100 to $1,400, to give you some perspective.
