Just won an auction for a Savage 99 308. Haven't actually received the rifle yet, so I don't know everything about it, but by serial number and features it seems to be around 1960, and based on the stock and gold trigger I think it's a model F.
I've been hearing about these being finicky with accuracy. Anyone experience this?
I see the same sling in a lot of pictures of the 99, so I assume they used to come with the rifle. Anyone know where I can find an original sling?
Thanks in advance for the help.

Mine had the standard military style sling,aftermarket. I don't recall them coming with them from the factory. This rifle,while far ahead of its time,is a poster child for bad trigger ergonomics. Neat though.The original design goes back to 1895,model 1899 had a few improvements,eventually called just the 99.
