    Local gun shop had them advertised for $299 w/ a cheap scope. I'm thinking about picking up, either it (the BVSS, gray laminate) or the FVSS model (black synthetic) for $20 less.

    Thoughts on choices and the gun itself?

    Go with the laminate, it's worth way more than $20 extra.

    Love mine, just wish I had gotten the thumbhole stock.

    I love my Savage r17-f, but I'm probably going to be trading it for a 10/22 :hsd:

    What's a good Bipod + scope for this thing?

    Any other must-have accessories?
