If these are the parts I sent you, I'd be interested in how the gun turns out. I don't know if an old barrel on a new action changes how it shoots, but it did like RL22.

    When I built my Savage .308 I talked to Kevin Rayhill at Stockade gun stocks. He had everything. Recoil lug, tactical bolt handle, bolt head, magazine box, everything. Best of all I had it in four days. He said If I ever needed anything call. Even on Sunday afternoon he said. Beware though, He will talk your ear off so have fifteen-twenty minutes if you call.

    I've had a half-hour call with Kevin too! Nice guy, and great products.

    I've also heard that Sharp Shooter Supply has been going through some growing pains. It was only Fred and Lisa handling all the bussiness. Now they've hired some competent help. So, they should be catching up with the backlog as well as focusing on some customer service shortfalls.

    Kevin is a great guy. I look at Savage Shooters forum alot and a bunch of people are talking about Sharp Shooter Supply and their backlog. Quite a few guys are getting the run around about delivery times on stocks especially. Not real happy campers. I tried to get ahold of them several times about my Savage project and could never get anyone on the phone.

    Kevin Rayhill is the best choice. He's into the Savage's and everything else as well as long range shooting. I know who I'll call on my next Savage project.
