What wood work did u do in order to get it to fit in? Do u mind posting pics? Thanks in advance

I also did a little work to allow the clip to slide in properly however my clip will not fully seat. Basically the plastic lever that hold the clips doesn't clip i. Did you have to sand the top of clip open so the clip could properly clip in?

No don't modify the clip. Mine was the same way. The Clio was hitting the front of the stock's magazine well. Take a little off the front of the home in the stock and it should fit.

Ya I did the sanding in the front and I have complete clearance but it still won't clip in. What I meant by my last post is sanding the top of the clip opening, basically where the clip hits the top of the stock??

Re: Savage BMAG Stocks at Boyds

Just finished putting my gun on the boyds stock.Its a beautiful stock. Its not quite a perfect fit. I got the escutcheons in right, but still can't get the saftey to work.

The barrel doesn't seem to be seated fully. the trigger looks like it could come down an 1/8 inch aand I can't get a dollar to slide under the barrel.

Its way better than the savage stock, that stupid stock turns right 2 inchs from the end of the fore grip.

Is this what everyone else has experienced ? I guess I have some more filing to do.

What is the answer for the saftey ? I didn't over tighten the rear screw. This is my main concern.Oh and my bolt seems harder to open and close.
Ok got the pics. 1st is the b-mag before,2 nd b-mag after (nice) and 3rd my b-mag (black)and my 93r savage 17 hmr in a camo stock.

Re: Savage BMAG Stocks at Boyds

You can pop the little red bb out and drill the hole a little deeper so it is flush with the stock and your safety will work. I talked with boyds technician today and he thinks savage has manufactured two bmag guns ls since the release with slightly different dimensions that is why people are havin so much trouble with clip not fitting properly. They want me to return my stock so he can examine it and see what is going on. He also said he is in discussion with savage engineers to try and clear up the difference. He expected this process to take two to four weeks. He suggested getting a Refund for my stock and they would contact me when they had the issues resolved with savage. Pretty disappointing but I can't wait when they finally do cause I love the look of this stock on this gun!!!
