YES!!! If it was a copy of the 1893 prototype in 32-20. Might even buy two if they made one in .45 Colt...

All day, every day and twice on Sundays. Miroku makes good gear.

Anyone who categorically states they wouldn't buy a Miroku-made rifle either has never owned/handled/shot one or who is dead set against buying "Made in Japan" for ancient political reasons or a misguided outlook concerning Japanese quality. It's no longer 1944, and Japan is one of our staunchest allies now. If one still carries the "sneak attack on Pearl Harbor" attitude then I hope that extends to buying anything made in Germany too. Yeah, there are still people like that out there....

I draw the line with Chinese made stuff, mainly A. for current political reasons but also B. because of the dodgy quality one may expect. Even the Chinese quality issue has a lot of exceptions - but which to me are nullified by A. above. But, one must be careful there too because Made in Taiwan is different, and because Taiwanese consider themselves the only "true China" a lot of their stuff is marked "Made in China".

Take optics for example. I talked with an entrepreneur who engaged in marketing mainland Chinese-made scopes. He said it's all about demanding world-class quality when placing an order. If you don't insist on top quality, and put yourself physically on site to guarantee it, you'll get crap. They're capable of best quality work but won't give it to you if they think for a second that they can get over on you. It's a game to them. But, for me, it's a moot point - see A. above.

I would definitely buy one! I suspect if they offered one in Creedmoor they'd sell a ton to the "man bun" types as well.

If I want a Savage, I'll buy a Savage. Not a knock-off.

So we'll just start calling them "the other" Marlin 1895, and eliminate them from Savage history.

Hee hee.. had to give you a bit of a hard time there. I've got an 1895, and I have a spanish made 99C, and I don't plan on letting either go even if they weren't made in a Savage factory.

I would only buy a Miroku 99 if it was a cartridge or configuration not easily or cheaply found that I wanted to hunt with, or I thought would end up collectible.

You know me. I have yet to see/own a Savage that I would not take to the woods and hunt it. If I remember correctly I took my share of flak for taking my unfired K to Anticosti Island not once, but twice. My first trip I saw nothing while I was carrying it. The next day I shot my 2 bucks with an EG in 250-3000. The following year I took it again and had to actually belly crawl through some think blow downs to get the the swamp I wanted to hunt and came up with this guy.

I think I am done buying guns but I've always wanted a 32-40 SRC.

That gun might knock me off the wagon.

I might if it came in a cartridge that interested me. JMO OMV. Life's too short to shoot rifles that aren't interesting.
