Savage Assistance Needed

Need to order a savage recoil lug.

I have one barrel and one action from different sources and no recoil lug.

Barrel is a savage 7 REM Mag take off barrel.

Specs say small or large shank. How do I tell which I need given the above information?

    well , if you have a small shank then you'll need a small shank lug , but if its a big shankl action and barrel then your gonna need a large shank lug:p

    Realy , the OD on the threads of the barrel should be 1.062"x20TPI for the small shank but generaly for factory barrels they can be as loose as 1.055" OD

    while the Large shank Savage barrels threads are 1.120"x20TPI , agaijhne the factroy barrels can vary as much as .005" from barrel to barrel.

    If your talking about the action you got from me then you will need a small shank recoil lug ,the ones from Sharp shooters supply are great as they have the screw stud already centered in the lug so it won't spinn when you tighen the barrel.

    Roy,
    Small shank barrels are the most common. The large shank come on the target actions, and later RUM, and WSM chamberings. The barrel diameter for a small shank barrel is 1.055. I large shank is around 1.120. If your barrel is a factory take off 7mm remington mag then a standard shank is what you need. $28 for a SS machined lug at Sharpshootersupply.com

    Hope this helps.

    There is also Scott Null in Driggs Idaho for all you Savage needs. He is currently at savagegunsmithing.com. I have dealt with him a number of times and he does exemplary work.

    Hey, Guys!

    Great information.

    James, Yep its the one I got from you. Everytime I look at it I get kind of depressed. Looks too good to stick a factory 7 Rem on it and a factory piece of wood.:( But that's the way things go.

    Freebore, its good to know that SharpShooters is a one man operation. That makes me more comfortable. Thanks.

    338Hammer, Driggs Idaho, eh? Darn near a neighbor....

    et al, thanks for the details. This is a bit of a learning curve for ol' Roy;) thanks for helping out.

    Buyer beware with Sharp Shooters. I hear that the product is good, but I can attest that the customer service is VERY substandard. After I had a terrible experience, I did a little research, and found that there were others that had similar problems.

    There were others, but this one is pretty representative.
