E Arthur Brown Co. will change your savage bolt head for a pretty reasonable price and send the old one back to you. Give EABCO a look.

    Easy to change the barrel yourself. You need a barrelnut wrench , go nogo gauges and a strong vise or an action wrench.

    Bolt heads are easy to change too. Lots of help with this on YouTube

    I'm thinking a lightweight Coues deer/ varmint rifle might be in the future.

    +1! Got one at http://www.pacifictoolandgauge.com/s...erformance.htm for $50. I suggest if you go this route, get extra springs, pins, etc. from Savage just in case you lose them in the process of replacing it ... it never hurts to have extra parts on hand just in case.

    There's a you tube video on the how-to.

    Good luck!

    I've got some time to think about this one, I've got several other "projects" to tackle first. Number one being a new scope for another rifle. I'll be doing a lot of research on cartridge before I proceed.

    Barrel and bolt head swaps are easy on the Savages. You can get the bolt heads thru midway for $25 or so. Getting the bolt head off the bolt body is easy. But when you remove/install the extractor and ejector do it in a large ziplock bag. I've had to chase too many springs and balls down and it's always been on carpet.
