Re: Idaho Savage rifle builders
Gotcha. This is one of the reasons I went with a Savage as well. Prefit barrels etc and do my own work. I don't have reamers etc but it is not that difficult to change triggers, bolts, bed stocks etc. I have not yet changed the barrels on any of my rifles but the 6.5 is probably close to needing the throat re-cut or install a new barrel. I have a 7-08 project on the bench as well that I would like to stick a LR barrel on and get rid of the axis stock.
I actually don't know any local Savage guys with the interest you have, so sorry, I am not being much help. Hope some local experts chime in for you.
