Who to use for Savage true job

Hi,

I'm picking up a Savage 110 FCP 338 when it is back in stock. I'm looking into an action trueing. I've narrowed it down to Sin Arms and Stockade. Sin is $100, Stockade is $215. Anyone have any experience with both? Pros/cons of both?

Please don't recommend SSS. I'm not dealing with their CS.

Thanks,
Chris

    Definitely would shoot it first. Truing does not always equate with more accurate but if I were going to have it done I would go with Devin at Sinarms.

    Are there any potential "dangers" in lapping? If I play it right, it will end up costing me net $60ish since I get free shipping on the purchase. Just thinking its worth the investment as long as there are no "dangers".

    Do not lap a Savage action. Visit savageshooters.com and you find a wealth of information about why not.

    Truing ok, but not lapping.

    Can you please elaborate what the difference is? This is my first attempt at anything like this. I'm not eve sure the difference. Here is what Devin quoted he does:

    " When I true a savage I true the receiver to the thread and lugs and true the barrel nut up. That is pretty much what everyone does"

    That seems in line with what you recommend.

    Lapping is done to the bolt/receiver fit, which will not help a Savage action. More like will harm it. Truing is as you described above.

    I,m a little confused. Most people Square everything when blueprinting an action and this includes
    the locking lugs on the bolt if they are not at 100% engagement and them Lap them for smoothness
    (This helps ease the bolt lift).

    Like all factory locking lugs they are rarely 100% and in some cases only one lug is in contact.

    I have never heard not to square and lap the lugs if they are not in full contact.

    In my opinion everything has to be square and true to the bore if you are going to call it blue printed.

    Just my opinion
