Does anyone have the Savage Model 116FXP3 or Savage Model 110GXP3?

I'm planning on getting one of them later this week in 30-06. The only differences I can find are the stock (wood vs. synthetic), the barrel (blued vs. stainless), and a slight price increase for the 116.

Does anyone have either? If so, I'd love to hear your critical feedback.

I prefer the stainless, but in a previous discussion it sounded like Savage sythetic stocks were pretty crappy.

Thanks,

I don't have one of those but I do own a few newer Savages. Yeah I am not big on their synthetic. You can always get aftermarket stocks for them though.
There will probably be no differance in the way they shoot, seeing as the action and barrel are the same minus the stainless part. Just depends on what you like.

I really like the stainless, so that's what I'm leaning towards. I guess I'll just have to wait to update the stock.

I am sure you won't be disappointed with the performance. And you can always hold out for a different stock.
