Has anyone had any experience with Savage Striker Pistols? I am most interested in the 510 F or 516 F SAK. I am thinking in terms of .243

Thanks

Marv,
I have shot and owned a SS Savage Striker. It was very accurate. Yes, it is a little blocky compared to a Contender, but it will handle cartridges the Contender cannot, and do so safely. The only reason I sold mine was to pick up another XP-100, which is my preferred action for specialty handguns. The only other thing I did not like about the Striker was it's trigger was to heavy for me. That can be remedied with a Basix Trigger though. If it is deer sized game and varmints are a consideration, another good choice would be the 260 Remington.

I have a striker in 260. It is the most accurate gun I own, including rifles. I'm not the best shot, but even I can shoot a 3/8 inch group every now and then.

The 260 striker is "the" gun I take when I'm goin antelope hunting. I'm really impressed with the 260. I've only had one antelope or deer to go over 5 yards when shot with 120 gr Nosler BT's
