Should i just sand down the fore end of the stock so it is free floated or should I send it in and let them mess with it?? Has anyone else had this issue with savage and their accustock?
Savage should fix this for you. However considering the turn around time you might be better off just having a local gunsmith take care of it for you.
My question though would be as to wether or not the stock itself is warped. If it is it might take a considerable amount of work to free float the barrel and you'll end up in the end with a warped stock.
You paid a premium to get that stock, and they should make it right. If you have a gunsmith work on it instead of sending it back you could lose any warranty that applies to the stock.
