    Cabela's Savage 12FV THREAD FEST

    I just received the latest Cabela's flyer, which features the "Cabela's Exclusive" Savage 12FV, for $389. Does anyone know anything about this specific model? I'm looking for a relatively inexpensive heavy barrel platform for my wife and daughter to punch paper and gongs with, rather than their hunting rifles.

    Same as any other model 12 just set up with a heavier barrel. Should work perfectly for what you are wanting.

    I guess I'm wondering what the differences are between the 12 FV and the 12 FCV. Quite a price difference, with Cabelas being about $300 less for the FV than Buds has the FCV listed at. I've never known Cabela's to have decent prices on their firearms, with a few exceptions. The 12FV is marked as having a "Medium Heavy barrel" in the sale flyer...

    Doing a quick search on Savages site and Cabelas it looks like the Cabelas version is the better of the two with the Cabelas version showing a heavier barrel. It's more than likely a Cabelas exclusive and why the difference in price.

    Edit to add. It looks like the 12FCV offers the detachable mag where the Cabelas is a blind mag.

    Hmmmm... I prefer the detachable mag, but think I may be making a trip to Cabela's on Friday...

    And if the photo on the Cabela's site is correct, it's top bolt release.

    You could probably add a new stock and the detachable mag to the Cabelas model and still come out ahead on price. A boyds stock is only $100 bucks and the parts to make it a detachable mag are only like $30. Detachable magazine is nice but I don't think it is $300 more nice.

    I bought a Model 12 FV in .223 a few months ago for my son to shoot. Had to send it back for burrs in the chamber, but once it's fixed, I expect it to shoot as good as my model 12 BVSS in 223. Of course we'll have to replace the stock with a good laminate, but still not a bad price for a model 12 with it's 26 inch varmint barrel.

    Don't forget to check Savage Arms website for a rebate. Could save you a bunch of cash.

    $419 at my closest Cabelas. Is it a tupperware stock?

    Yes, tupperware stock. It's $30.00 off here in my neck of the woods. Maybe the sale is only regional. Might give your store a call to check if you're interested.

    Checked today and here in Louisville they are On sale for $389.00. All are top bolt release, centerfeed with the polymer stock. The stock has the wider forend "beavertail" style and larger barrel channel and seems to be a little nicer than some of Savages cheaper stocks.

    I bought 3 12fv rigs from cabelas a several months back when they "introduced" them as new (12fv have been around for years).
    They are as Rosco stated above.

    Its pretty good rifle.

    Top bolt release, slotted barrel nut, metal trigger guard, 26" varmint contour, large bolt handle... What more could you want that you can't get and add to it later?

    I was actually as Cabelas picking up my new Weatherby and the sales rep pointed it out and it seems to be a company wide sale.

    you might have missed the special but still for the regular price that's a great rifle. i was looking at them for awhile wanting either the 204 or 223 but put painting my house first for a change, it really needed it. now since having the house painted i can't afford even the special price, maybe next time i will have the money.

    I went back today and they took care of me.

    I wouldn't normally be able to afford two at one time, either, but I am building a couple 450BM's for some friends of mine and we needed the actions. Sweet, sweet deal, for sure. :)

    I got mine. The only one they had in .223. Only one other in the store, in 22-250. Including my $20 off with purchase of $150 coupon, $369.99. Now I have to wait as budget allows for a scope and rings...
