I have been thinking about maybe getting a Savage 340 in .30-30. I would use it for pleasant target shooting at 100 yards, using the Remington Managed recoil ammo.
Problem is, it looks like these things were made for 40 years, and there is a plethora of different models, indicated by different letter suffixes.
I think that if I got one, I would want the following features:
1. Genuine walnut stock, not beech.
2. Factory d/td on the side of the receiver for the Weaver side mount.
3. Either no checkering, or the really nice tight diamond checkering I have seen on a few that were in .222 Remington. (The impressed checkering on the later models is just . . . too horrible for words.)
4. Front sight that looks like a standard modern leaf sight. Not the dial-o-matic type I have seen.
Any ideas what model I should be looking for? Is it the B model? Or something else perhaps?
