Savage question

My buddy is looking at a 111 LRH in 338 Lapua and we were talking about how he should be able to upgrade anything he doesnt like about it if there is anything. My question is, Does the accustock model have a different recoil lug to fit the accustock? of can you put an accustock on any savage or any aftermarket stock on an accustock model? Or would you have to change the recoil lug?

Re: Savage question

Morning Mike, I could have been smoking crack for breakfast but, If memory serves me correctly, the accustock is just a different way of attaching the stock to the action. I can't see any reason a manufacturer would go through the pains of retooling & creating different process for producing a different lug design?? Just rambling of course I do happen to know a good 'smith in Sturgis that can CNC inlet pretty much any stock for pretty much any action.....

BTW- how is that 260 coming?

Re: Savage question

That is what I kind of figured, 260 is at a stand still as of right now trying to decide what to do.

Ah yes, I was in that situation for SOOO long with the 6.5 WSM, I finally have to tell myself to either Sh$% or get off the pot!

I expect to have my bbl back this week from fluting! What are you debating on?

Re: Savage question

Mike,

I don't have the .338, but on the other savages, they use a shorter recoil lug for the accustocks than the "standard" savage recoil lug. You can buy the different lugs on midway.
