I have a Marlin and a Savage. Both have heavy blued barrels. Both are built like sturdy toys with metalwork and a feel that leaves a little to be desired, which is expected for the price.

Savage- The AccuTrigger is great, but the plastic trigger guard is lame. The magazines feel flimbsy but they work fine. Reciever is drilled n tapped for scope bases.

Marlin- I replaced the trigger with a RifleBasix and it's as good or a little better than the AccuTrigger. There are no plastic parts. Reciever has a dovetail milled for scope bases.

Both are exeptionally accurate. Which do I prefer? I guess the Marlin but only because it has nicer wood.
