I think the question is what are you using this rifle for? Going hunting? 22-24 inch,and that would be to make it handier to use.Too short,and you havent burned all the powder in the barrel,say 16inches.The Russians put scopes on those 28 inch long rifles,and gave the Germans hell with them.You wont ever make a target rifle from one ,but by hand loading with different bullet weights,powder charges you can find what it does best with out cutting it up.Best deal for a cheap accurate rifle,Savage 110,about 250 bucks.All you shots under a 25 cent piece.

dorklord, I checked the Savage site,and your right the 110 that was the staple of big 5 sporting ,dunhams etc isnt there.looks like they have turned it in to the 114 ,or a more high end rifle.They made 110"s for 40 years so they turn up used,just have to walk the gunshows.2-3 years back at the range a guy had one,and he knew just enough about shooting to be safe,and he was clover leafing his targets in between asking how to adjust the scope,sling etc.
