Looks a lot like a 112 BVSS to me. I have it's 7mmMAG brother:



I don't know when Savage stopped making them. The rifle weighs 13 lbs with the scope on it. Recoil is not an issue with the 7mag cartridge.

Re: Savage, what year is it?

My 112BVSS in .300 WinMag looks like yours. Blued action/w stainless barrel. Yours is pre-AccuTrigger as the tang safety is the rectangular type. Savage went with a bigger, oval, tear shaped safety when they brought out the AccuTrigger. Hence the reason for the Rifle Basix aftermarket trigger. Good trigger, by the way, I have one on mine also.

Keep that crap up for too long and they may not be so successful. At the least they should accept all inquirys and backlog them...better yet get every qualified person irregardless of the job including management and have them dedicate 1 hour a day from their normal job to help the folks normally tasked with answering emails.

Re: Savage, what year is it?

Why do you need to know how old it is?

I have a 110 that is about 40 years old, it swaps all the parts with the Stainless 116 that I got 3 months ago.

The 25-06 is a long action. They haven't changed bolt spacing or anything on the long actions.

I guess I'm just curious. Also so one day, years down the road, I can say I have a model 12 that is xx years old and it swaps parts with one I bought 3 month ago

Re: Savage, what year is it?

The only way I know my rifle is that old is because is has the Remington style recessed breach and different style extractor. They quit making them in 1967.

Since then, all the long action parts interchange, mostly.
