The Accutrigger out of the box on my 30-06 was about 4.5 lbs but can quite easily be lowered to under 30 ozs. I've never had a Tikka but one day maybe I will. Beautiful guns.savages are generally pretty accurate, especially for the cost. i do not however care for the craputrigger. thankfully there are good aftermarket triggers available for it. i do not have enough experience with the tikka to give a good comparison.
Savages are not "cheap", if you want "cheap", look at a Remington 710, the Savages may not cost a fortune, or be that pretty, but to say they are "cheap" is totally incorrect.Personally i would go with the tikka just because i think there is more quality there. The Savage is kind of a cheaply biult gun if you ask me, I own one and even though it shoots nice i cant say that i like the way the clip sticks when your trying to put it in or how it dosent look quite as nice as a tikka. The Tikka has got a name for itself that suggests something of value.
