I'm planning to progressively build a custom LRH rifle based on the Savage long action (.300WM), with barrel-swap potential. As a first step the intention is to buy a stock rifle and pretty much immediately replace the barrel with a match grade 26" #5-#7 contour barrel.
After wading through the alphabet soup that is Savages model designations, and features, I've narrowed it down to 116 FHSS/111 LRH/116 Bear Hunter.
Given that the barrel is going to be replaced (and therefore ignoring barrel length and muzzle brake
combinations), from what I can tell they are essentially the same - long action, AccuStock, AccuTrigger - except the LRH is blued (my preference is for stainless) and has the Karsten adjustable comb, and the BH has a camo stock.
I can't find anything that indicates Savage have done extra work to the receiver, bolt, trigger or bedding on the LRH.
I guess the question is: Is there anything special about the LRH apart from the longer barrel (and muzzle brake)?
Thanks in advance.
