338 Lapua Savage Action for $495.00

I've been waiting for this to happen for awhile now and it looks like it might be available. On their website under sporter actions it lists a 300WM long action with a magnum bolt head. This should work for a 338 lapua right, or is it not the large shank?

I've been wishing someone would make a 338 Lapua action that's not $1000.00 for years now. Has my dream finally come true?

That is their standard action. Their 338 Lapua rifle uses a redesigned action that they say won't be available by itself. Savage seems good about giving customers what they want though so maybe in the future they'll sell it seperately?

I was afraid that was the case. Maybe we should all call in and request this action be available for purchase as action only. If they are already making it, it shouldn't be too hard for them to offer it as action only.

I'll have to give them a call on Monday and make a polite request. I encourage others to do so as well.

I already called an made that request. The more they hear about it the better our chances. They should be able to sale quite a few if they offer them.

Re: 338 Lapua Savage Action for $495.00

The problem is... do they want to undercut the sales of their complete rifles by selling the actions only?

The last six months to a year, many (most) times when I see someone ask about buying a Savage 12 F-Class, F/TR, Palma, BR, whatever... some well meaning souls tell them 'you can build your own cheaper', and give them a list of pieces, parts, and sources for said. Yes, Savage sells an action. But they don't sell a complete rifle, which is really what they are in business for. So what are their options? Raise the price of the actions until they won't under cut their main business, or stop selling the bare actions entirely. I don't really like either option, personally, but I can't fault people trying to help their fellow shooters save money either.

YMMV,

Monte

I'm using a Savage target action on my lapua with great results. It has a 32" Dauglas brl. and shoots around 2950fps with 300gr Smk's.
