In the early 80's I bought a Stevens Crackshot. The trigger guard was actually a lever that opened the action. It was a replica of the oldtime Stevens. I had to trade it off. The trigger pull was so stiff my kids couln't fire it. It was so stiff that even I couldn't hit anything with it. Considering the cost of it, I decided that having a gunsmith do a trigger job on it would just about double the cost of the gun, so I got rid of it. To be fair, Savage and many other American arms makers were having a tough financial time of it back then, and Savage wasn't the only one to send out finished product that wasn't really up to standard. It was shortly after this period, I believe, that the grand old Savage 99 was finally discontinued for good after a brief reintroduction. Today they're back on their feet and making fine firearms again. The models come and go quickly though. By the time I saved up the money for the Scout rifle they had for a couple of years it was no longer in the catalog. Same thing with the takedown .22 magnum Stevens Crackshot, now available in .22 long rifle and .17 Hornady. I wouldn't hesitate to buy a new Savage now. I guess that's more than you asked, but I hope it helps. I just inherited my Dad's old pre-WWII .300 Savage 99, so I've had Savage on my mind lately. He used to have a takedown Model 1903 .22 pump made by Savage. We wore that one out when I was a kid. If they made that again, I'd be first in line to buy one, if they put a peep sight on it. Anyway, good luck.
