savage 110?

i was at the local shop huntin around for an action to build an 06 case based rifle. not finding any military actions like i want i spotted a well used savage in 270. nylon stock poor looking barrel on the bargin rack. for 300$ it diddn't say what model and wasen't anyone around to tell me but it had the spanner nut holding the barrel on. not being a savage guy is this a good action?

    I've got a bunch of Savages. I love them. I also prefer the Accutrigger so I wouldn't buy and old beater without that feature. Once you get an action, you can swap barrels and bolt heads and stocks and such and make whatever you want. I just turned a 270 Win into a 300 RUM and my first try at a couple of loads ran 1.5" at 200 yards with the 210 Berger VLDs. I'm figuring I can improve on that with a little tweaking. The barrel is a factory varmit contour stainless that cost me $100 from Numrich's website.

    Another example, if you want to push the envelope, you can get a prefit (for Savage actions) stainless 338 Edge barrel from McGowen for about $330. Throw a brake on it, and $100 for a Boyd's laminate stock, a comp lug, mag bolt head and bedding job and you have just created a long range hammer. With RL-33 the Edge really is a hammer. My nephew is getting 0.5 MOA running the 300 grain Bergers at 3040 fps out of his Edge. That is 6150 ft lbs with a bullet that just doesn't slow down.

    One caveat, you need a good barrel vice and barrel nut wrench to get the 100-200 ft lbs torque to put a barrel on properly. You also need go/no-go gagues.

    The accutrigger has a blade in the center of the trigger that sticks out. It blocks the trigger from firing until it is depressed. There is a standard and a target version, the latter can be safely adjusted to a lower pull.

    Yes, 110 are very good actions. The model # is engraved on the barrel normally just in front of the barrel nut on the left hand side.


    (Sorry for quality of the take off barrel pix)

    If I were going to replace the trigger, it would be aftermarket. Timney and others are a good choice.
