After doing a little more looking today, it turns out that the Stevens is made in China. However, it does carry Savage's warranty and is backed by their Customer Service (which I've heard is excellent). As long as it's a quality piece, I really don't care where it's made.
If given a choice between two (essentially) identical pieces of the same quality and at the same price, I'd pick the one that was made in the U.S. I just haven't seen anything close to that price -- but maybe I'm not looking in the right places...
