Re: need single shot sav action machined to repeater

Is your current rifle a model 10/11/12 (short action) or 110/111/112 (long action)?

If long action, I have a 110 model in 223 repeater and willing to trade.

PM me if interested.

Model 12, target short action, right bolt left port. Savage calls it a model 12 lrpv.

Unless I am mistaken, Savage did not make the target (single shot) as a long action, ever. I would grab one of those in a heartbeat. But it looks like I have to save a bunch more fir a Stiller/Shilen.

Savage makes many models. Shane1 has, as he described, an LRPV in the right bolt/left port configuration.

do you realize what you have?

* probably the straightest factory action ever made

* 3.2 times stiffer than a standard magazine action

* better trigger

* the fastest lock time short of a Remington 788

* Rifles are so accurate, that they are banned from most factory class shoots!

Sin Arms and the rest of you guys have talked me into keeping it and re-barrelling it into a long range hammer of some sort. I was thinking along the lines of a 6.5 or 7mm short mag. What do you all think we should turn it into?? I need to stay 30 cal or smaller so I can run my suppressor on it. Thanks for the push on keeping it before I did something stupid.

Now I really like the .257AI necked up to 6.5mm. Not the fastest round out there, but just a good all around round. But I've also kind of gotten onto the 6.5WSM band wagon. Nothing but a 270WSM necked down to .264. Get the fast twist barrel and shoot those .62B/C bullets father than you can see! With this round, your probably going to have to open the ports up a little bit. I just this a 130 grain bullet at 3250fps is going to seriously work. Of course the 7mm WSM would be a great choice as well. Get yourself a 30" barrel with a bunch of Magpro, and have fun.
