Re: Satisfied Savage owners - speak out!

I own several Savages, LRH 6.5-284, Predator 22-250, LRP 260, 110FCP 338LM, and two 22 rim fires, TR, BVSS. All are very accurate and reliable except for the 338 which is having sticking case issues which I am currently trying to sort out. All of these rfles are .5 MOA or less.

Re: Satisfied Savage owners - speak out!

I love my 111 fcns 30-06 accustock, accutrigger. After de-lawering the trigger (it was decocking) and cut, crown and threading the barrel for a muzzle brake. I will camo duracoat it soon. It shoots 1/2" groups at 100 yds consistantly with Sierra MK 210 gr.
Yes I am anal, I seldom leave a new rifle stock.
Yes I do my own work!

It is one of my few sporter weight rifles but a keeper.

Who resurrected this from the grave?

Anyway I'm a fond believer in the factory Savage and their precision for the $. I own four of which three can compete with any custom.

Where did you get it?

Bought it used on the web. It is a Boyd's stock.

Here is a great review of the Accustock:

So I am curious to see what you satisfied Savage owners have to say.

Satisfied Savage owners - speak out in this thread!
most folks own more Savages than I do, but I got all I really need right now anyway. I own three bolt guns, and two 99's. I just don't how I managed to survive all these years before I got my first 99!!!

I love my model 10 in 260 rem. I hate the accutrigger. Just can't wrap my mind around having a trigger within a trigger. Going to swap it out ASAP. Otherwise it's a blast to shoot.
