Go over to Savageshooters.com and look in the vendore classifieds section, under "Northland Shooters Supply". Jim is one of the nicest guys to deal with, and wont hang up the phone till he is confident you are getting exactly what you're looking for. He sells McGowen and Shilen.

Northland Shooters Supply

BTW, Be sure to replace the factory recoil lug with a trued precision lug from either Northland or from SSS.
Sorry for asking but do you have a to be a member to purchase? Thanks!

when I read the notes on the top of Pac-nors prefit barrel section it says that they are short threaded, and they need to be set back. If I understand this right its not something i can do myself

the Pacnor Savage barrels are fully chambered if they are set up for a barrel nut. You can also buy a Brux from Sharpshooter for close to the same money, and it's probably a little better barrel. But I like the chamber selection better with Pacnor and Shilen. Still if it's just a hunting rifle, you really don't need to spend the extra money for a benchrest grade barrel.

No, you do not have to be a Savageshooters member to buy from Jim. If he asks how you found out about him, just tell him. He is really a heck of a guy to talk to.

Many thanks! I've seen many kudos on Jim, he seems to have what I need for my future project and will definitely contact him.

Thanks again.
