WeaponsMan - Who Doesn’t Make ARs? Not Savage (any more)
Of course, for most people, the SKS rifle is the best prepper rifle, except for current and former SAMGS (Sailors, Airmen, Marines, Guardians (Coasties) and Soldiers) because you don't need to purchase 10, 20, or 30 expensive and fragile magazines ($10.49, $11.83, or ...)
Plus, you only have one choice for the barrels twist rate and one or two weights of bullets.
