Re: Savage Accustock

Jim,
I have two Savages and both are laminated. One is a .300WinMag 112BVSS, no mods other than a Rifle Basix trigger. The other is a 6.5-284, marked Model 12 but is a long action. It also started life in the BVSS configuration, but now sets bedded in a VLP stock. Both rifles have shot sub half-MOA groups out to 700yds. JohnnyK.

Re: Savage Accustock

My model 116 accustock does not have the wedge either. Regardless the fit and finish of this rifle is actually quite good and it shoots well.

Re: Savage Accustock

I had rotten groups out of the box with my 111, but after relieving the barrel channel & sinking two 8" sections of carbon arrow shaft next to the bedding block (1 on each side drilled into the very front of the forend) & filling the forend with epoxy it gives me 1/4" groups.

Re: Savage Accustock

The AccuStock also gives you a stiffer forend compared to their regular synthetic stock, especially useful when shooting with a bipod.
