I picked up this savage macht 6 last week. I've been GASing for one of these for a while and been keeping my eye on the used market. I got a good deal on it on the bay and what a beauty she is!!! Just got done firing her up for the first time and all I can say is WOW . . . this thing sounds amazing. Played a Macht 12 and really liked it but I think this sounds a little different and a little better, may just be in my head. I only got to crank it for a few seconds before the wife made me turn it down but it sounded really good, a nice warm growl. The thing is built like a tank! I'll try to give a better review after I have had some time alone with it.
