Yes, and took care of the nitride processing. Excellent work, I highly recommend them.

Re: Building gun from parts?

You may very well know all this but in case you don't. Depending on what you plan on doing you will need to consider old or new screw spacing for the short action, flat or rounded action top, side or bottom bolt release, and as someone already mentioned whether or not it is a standard or large shank.

Again my apologies if you already know this. It is easy to make a mistake parts buying without knowing which exact savage action you have.

Thanks for the info never paid attention to round or flat top action till you mentioned it. To clarify shank refers to the portion of barrel that houses the casing not the thread tenon that goes into the receiver? More then likely rifle will be of older model so prob have side bolt release. Just wild guess always find older models at pawn shops. Yet I am sure anything possible as to what I find.

Bought the Stevens 200 long action used for $200.
Put a SSS trigger in for about $100
The SSS bolt conversion was about $55
The 110 BA bolt handle was about $80
SSS machined recoil lug was about $25
All of the parts prices are from my best memory (give or take a few dollars)
I don't know the breakdown on the barrel but the total for the barrel, brake, all machine work, having the barrel and action nitrided and shipped back to me in a hard case assembled and ready to install was $875.
So the total less the stock is about $1,335-ish.

Hope this answers your question.
John
