Or, you can get it directly from Savage. It will cost a little more, but they're easier to deal with.

Or you can contact VBull Precision.. them have DBM for the LA Savages that use the AI Mags..

+1 on being careful dealing with SSS.. Lisa is great but a bit scatterbrained or disorganized..

Re: convert LA savage to DBM?

So having read this...having read SSS DBM info...anyone think it would be possible to add a Savage DBM to a CHOATE Tactical LA stock?

Following SSS logic the bottom metal is $69 and $70+ in SS and utilizes the factory magazine box...

Looking for a lesser expensive way to make a LA tactical into a DBM gun...

Does Savage offer a Higher capacity DBM in .308?

I will let you know. We are about to attempt just this. Building a 308 on a long action Savage. I have a 1.25" no taper barrel and a choate tactical stock..

I may know Sunday but more likely a week or two.

Re: convert LA savage to DBM?

You may have to watch which long action you have. Though the screw spacing is the same I think you'll still run into staggerfeed on older stuff and centerfeed on others. There will be differences in the bottom of the action between the two. Just check it out real well before you jump on it. Haven't messed with any of the hinged floor plate models but usually if you pull the action from the stock a staggerfeed will have the mag box attached to the action. A centerfeed will pull free with no mag components attached.
