I started this topic only becasue in the savage topic we had mentioned about Savages new rifles and Stevens was brought up. the question was, what is Stevens doing if Savage is making new Rifles. Well I just got my new issue of American Riflmen and there are two write up in there. One on the new Stevens model 200 and the other on the new Mossberg ATR. I have not read either of them yet, but my son has and he says from the readings, he would rather have the Stevens because of accuracy. So we now know what Stevens is doing and I guess we can open the discussion at will.
