    Please let us know how Savage handles this. Barrel regulation on double guns can be a thorny issue. I've seen responses from manufacturers about shotguns far more expensive than a Savage that have a significant deviation of POI that the patterns are "within their acceptable tolerances."

    This thread is about issues he's having with his Model 42, and he asked a couple questions about others who have the same model. Nobody asked what you like better, or for photos of your combo gun.

    Yet the OP did post that it would be nice if there was a 20ga and more cartridge options, so posting about the 24 is valid.

    Doesn't matter, his interjection about the 42 being a "junk gun" was completely out of left field and didn't help anyone with anything.

    Thread derail over.

    Very true

    Back to the 42, I was looking at them but for the money another 22LR and 410 I could not justify it.

    Best of luck getting it fixed up and running.

    He has a point, but I did enjoy the pictures at least.

    I'll definitely let you guys know asap. Companies definitely have a margin for error on products, but I wouldn't count a 8" difference between barrels at only 10 yards as an acceptable deviation lol. If they make me pay a penny for the warranty you wont see me buying savage again. But so far I have nothing but good experiences with them despite the crap defect lol.

    This is why I tend towards old guns. If they are still shooting and still functioning properly 50+ years down the line they are probably not a POS. Hunting guns are never shot out like competition guns, so as long as they are not rusty I go for old.

    The last savages I shot were lower end axis, they felt like crap, shot fine but just gritty bolt, tough to on open, just felt bad, so your experience is not surprising to me.
