He probably means the synthetic stock, I prefer to hunt on fair days only so its not really a problem for me.
Any reviews on these rifles?
I think that a gizmo to break it down without tolls will show up one day or another.

I was going to buy one of these until I got to hold one. Feels REALLY CHEAP! The ejecter is plastic and you have to eject by hand, it isnt spring loaded.
I agree that compared to the model 24s which I have many of, yes the 42 feels rather toyesh. With that being said if you put a model 42 in my hand to replace my 24 d 22mag - 20 gauge I would take the lighter, shorter, nimble and pervious to weather conditions model 42 hands down; providing it came in 22mag over 20 guage.
As for the auto ejectors, the model 24 line up never hadem nor would I have wanted them to. Just another moving part that could fail you out in the bush. This is a "savage" not a browning cynergy feather lol. Leave them auto ejectors for the skeet and upland boys.
Benelli leading the way, Benelli covering my back, and a Sig on my side....Thats just how I role!
Bought one the other day. I actually don't mind the look/feel so much, and it's nice and light. Action is smooth, but trigger a little heavy.
Took it to the indoor range today, and now I'm a little disappointed. Both barrels print to same POI (HV .22, .410 slug), but that POI is way high even with rear sight bottomed out. I also had to dial the rear sight as far left as I could. At this point, I'm trying to decide if I should start modifying the rear sight, or looking for an aftermarket piece. Not wanting to put glass on it.
Ok, after much effort, I discovered that there was a burr in the barrel left by the crowning cut at the factory. Watch for it !
Ill wait 2 months. Ive been waiting for this thing for a year now, whats another 2 months for the WMR. The model 24's are awesome, i hope the new model 42's can live upto its brothers reputation. The major down fall I herd of, is the sights are kinda crappy. I Will be putting on a fastfire for sure.
One question for gunsmiths... It has a fixed open choke.... Any chance a guy can thread it to take chokes? Im planning on using this as my grouse gun, and would like an improved cylinder or modified choke. I'd ask a friend, but I dont know anyone that has a .410 shotgun.
