Build order

Starting with a savage 110 action what would be the suggested build order to come to a fully upgraded rifle?
Do any steps have to happen simultaneously?

    Starting with just an action, there's no real 'order' to it. You will have to amass and assemble all the various parts before you will have an operable rifle. that said, I would start with getting a barrel and barrel nut. If there's any metal work that will require a smith, that will take the most time so get the barrel and any work that it needs to have done going.

    From there you will need a stock, bed the action into the stock. You will also need a trigger.

    While all of these projects are going, you can be researching and ordering rings and bases for your scope.

    Basic components are as follows:

    Floorplate & bottom metal (and internal magazine assembly), or detachable mag bottom metal & mags

    Work would be:

    True action & Bolt face
    Thread barrel
    Chamber barrel with reamer to specified caliber
    Set headspacing
    Bed action
    Float barrel
    Torque it into the stock on final assembly
    Install base(s)
    Install rings
    Lap rings for true fitment
    Install scope
    Pay the smith
    Go shoot your new toy...
