Re: Savage Bolt

Glad you took my post for what it was Cruizin, I just cant help myself I gotta razz the collage boys
Savages are fun guns mainly because you can do most of the work on them yourself...If you run into any other issues ask away, the first one can be a little confuseing till you figure out how easy it really is to change,swap and customize a Savage.

This ones gonna be my 06 unit(25-06,280ai and 30-06).The barrels where aquired in a gun swap a few years, the action was picked up from Mr Jones if I remember right, the 20MOA base is a EGW and the stock was a cheap laminent pickt up from Sportsmanguide a while back on sale. Just waiting for a triggerguard and a scope to show up.


Only the two blued barrels are original, all of the stocks have been at least bedded if not totaly reworkt. There is a couple of different custom triggers in the single shoots that break just a tad better than the reworked 3 screw factory ones but not much;)

Re: Savage Bolt

MachV,

The second rifle counting from the buttom, the one with the bipod, what is your experience with that rifle? Bipod being almost under the recoil slug and kind of light. How does it behave when you shoot it?

Nice line up. I've got three Savage builds in the works.

Its a 204 so the recoil was never an issue but after I moved the sling stud back it sure was easier to see hits. I've got just over 1000 rounds through it under all conditions @ prairie dogs. There is a lite 243 barrel sitting here I was planning on swapping in for speed goats but?? The lite tupperware stocks are noted for bouncing off the bipods, moveing the stud back realy helps settle it down...Fer me at least. The lighter the barrel the farther you can move the stud back, you dont want it too far back or they get barrel heavy.

Re: Savage Bolt

MachV , I like that stock forend desgine

I like Savages , for the money their nearly impossible to beat for out of the box accuracy.

Cruizin : as a side note on the firing pin , the little four prong nut on the top and bottom of the spring is how the tension and pin protrusion is set , I advise leaving those setting alone unless their is an issue that calls for adjustment.
as for the engineers , welllll , for the most part the guys that have had some sort of real world experiance arn't bad to work with , but Lockheed Martin hires some of the most ignorant green yahoos I've ever run accross and we constantly have arguements over what can and should be done but after a year or so they settle down take their head out of their butt and relize their wasteing their time here and move along to a better company

Re: Savage Bolt

I just put together a Savage target action and sure did like how easy it was to change the bolt face and firing pin compared to working on my Rem XP 100s. I changed it to a WSM.
MachV I"ll be in your town in two weeks for another antelope hunt. Sure have some nice people there!!

Mike
