    New Dick's Sporting Goods Package - "Model 11 VT"

    Saw two of these "Model 11 VT" rifles at my local Dick's, a .223 and a .308. I bought the .308 for eventual conversion to .260 Rem, and took delivery with a Leupold 6-18. Savage SKU on the box is 19939.

    These are 24" heavy varmint barrels with Bushnell 4-12x40 scopes, Dick's lists at $599. Savage confirms the .308 has 10" twist.

    Gun has an AccuTrigger. Black synthetic stock is unique -- beavertail and three swivel studs similar to a Model 12. Barrel is well floated. Overall, the gun feels heavy.

    I didn't realize this was a retailer special until I went to look it up and couldn't find anything remotely like it on Savage's site. I really wanted a heavy barrel 308 for my .260 LR project, and I was pretty close to buying a Rem 700 SPS Varmint until I saw this. Savage makes a better candidate for barrel swaps, so I picked it up.

    Good deal.
    Is the bolt release on the side?

    In front of the trigger.

    You know, it occurs to me that I don't know for sure that Savage wasn't already selling these to Dick's. But the lady at Savage who looked up the specs had never heard of the series before, so I'm assuming they're new.

    You mean it's going to be easier to sell the varmint barrel as a take-off?

    Bolt release in front of the trigger -- my bad.

    And, no, the varmint barrel's not an easy sale. But it will be nice to know that whatever heavy barrel I buy, it'll still fit this same stock.

    Hi I'm new to the forum and very interested in this gun! Does anyone know more about it? Is it the accustock, I don't even see anything remotely like it on savages website! Is the barrel the same as any other model.

    It sounds the same as my Mdl 10 FLCP-K Accu Stock. With DBM, bottom bolt release (in front of the trigger) and two sling studs up front. One of these days Ill get a pic of mine back on here. The last ones I posted went away with the new site.
    Good Shootin yer new gun!

    Well I just got off the phone with savage. The gun is a dicks only exclusive. Here's the specs:
    -24" heavy barrel
    -9:1 twist
    -accutrigger
    -black synthetic stock (not accustock)
    -4-12x40 bushnell scope
    $599

    Still torn between this one and the 111 trophy combo with Nikon bdc

    9" twist would have to be the .223. They told me the .308 is 10".

    Yes, the stock is similar to the FCP-K, though I doubt it's an AccuStock. I'll know more about the stock when I tear it down next week to put the .260 barrel on it.

    Yes your correct 9" on .223 and 10" on .308. What do you think about the rifle? Do you think it would suit me well for my first rifle in the target/varmint hunting category. I'm still debating on caliber between the .223 and .308 but I did like the gun. Just find it odd it's not savages model or lineup. Wondering if they cheap out on certain aspects and if I should go with a regular 111 trophy model with the Nikon BDC scope.
    Thanks

    What did you pay for your .308?

    I picked this very gun up today at Dick's in .308. I believe it is very much the FP-SR with a DBM. Also I got it for 549.99. The best price I could find on the FP-SR $642.99 with a msrp of $775.00. Just an FYI.

    FP is AccuStock. I suspect this one is not. Plus, with the new-style action that has the bolt release by the trigger guard, there may not be as many options for upgrading the stock.

    That said, I'm happy I got it over the Axis and the Rem 700 as a short action barrel swap platform. I already have a 26" .260 Rem barrel in transit, and I'm thinking about getting one chambered in .243 as well. It's a lot cheaper to be collecting barrels than guns.

    EDIT: Turns out the FP-SR is not AccuStock. So this could be a similar stock, only with a 24" varmint barrel. But it does appear to be a different action than the FP-SR. Since this has the trigger-guard bolt release, the stocks might only be outwardly similar. But I do agree that the 11VT and the 10FP appear to be similar rifles, including the fact that both are available in .223 and .308.
