Replace Broken Stock on Savage 110?
I have a Savage 110 30-06 with a factory synthetic stock that broke in two when I dropped it after losing my balance. I was climibing over a rock on which I was going to sit on the first morning of a CO trip for mulies! I was a liiiiitle bit unhappy with myself! Fortunately, I was able to borrow a gun for the rest of the trip. The fall also slightly bent down the near end of the tube on a brand new Nikon Buckmaster BDL scope.
Before I broke the gun I could not get a group tighter than 2 inches at 100 yds no matter what ammo I tried, even when I had the barrel floated. Oddly enough, it shot slightly better without the barrel floated. The bore does have a little wear but not much. The crown is good and so is the trigger. The gun is very clean. I can shoot well enough to consistently get 1 inch or better groups with my buddy's new Remington 700 in .270.
Should I buy a replacement stock and scope because the stock could have contributed to the problem, like maybe being too flexible? Or, should I sell the barrel and action for say $100 and get a Remington or Ruger?
