Re: Savage model 116 barrel fix?

Thanks everyone. I guess penny pinching isn't worth missing that 12 point or possibly getting hurt. I tracked down the guy who had it. And now I get the full story in attempt to go grab another rifle out of his house the guy left the rifle leaning against the rear of his car. It fell and his wife got in and backediver it. He got over on me but now I know what happened and it was my lack of attention that caused me to get this gun without checking it over good. I have shot it. Shoots like a 7 mag does but not accurate therefore I will not be hunting with it. I am going to drop it off with the gun smith or try to sell parts from it one as I figure it will never have the accuracy it once had. Thought I had a good deal but it was my fault for not checking it out real good. May get a new barrel put in. We will see.

You might call savage and see if they'd take a look at it for free. They might give you a freebee, you never know. The guys a creep for selling something he didn't know was safe, I'd go back to the source and demand your money back. It seems to have been sold under false pretenses.
