    howdy
    i have a couple savage rifles i want to get some tuning done to . my question is who can do it .
    have a savage model 12 in 7mm stw i wuld like to get the heavy barell fluted and add a muzzle break along with truing the action.
    the second iis a model 111 lrh in 6.5 x 284 hat shoots good but i would also lik
    to accurize it as well.
    I have e mailed sharp shooter supply twice now with no responc so im thinking they ae to busy. is there anyone else out there that can do this work that is trustable and can have them done before october????
    thanks

    Sadly, I gave up on SSS along time ago for the same reason.

    (Which lead me to>>>>) Try Kevin Rayhill of Home - Stockade Gun Stocks, he's a super nice guy and is a Savage guru. Both him and his wife Janet are good people.

    If you end up talking to Kevin, be prepared because he can talk. :D:rolleyes::)

    However, I would try the sponsors here first! Some of them also have their own muzzle brakes and are very effective. You cannot go wrong with any one of them.

    If you end up with Kevin (or any other gunsmith) and you do not like the muzzle brake(s) they offer, I would definitely go with any of site sponsors' muzzle brake designs.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for adding Stockade. He is just an hour down the road from me.

    look for a guy that goes by Rusty Stud on here. He's good! Clay Spencer is also at the top of the game.

    Kevin is very easy to talk to. He is working on two savages for me as we speak. One barrel on order and true and time two actions as soon as I get them boxed up and sent to him.

    WOW
    i just read my first post and i think i must have had a good buzz when it came to my spell check !!
    any way thanks for the input i hope i can get some tuning done soon. i have been comunicating with SSS and i think i will give them a try.
    everything i have read is that Fred is the savage king so i hope everything goes well.
    I will report back when it comes back but that wont be until late july or august.
    thanks

    Well I seeing able to us this rifle for hunting this year.nt my barreled action to SSS . they said 4-6 weeks to do the work. Here it is September 9th and I have not heard anything from them they have not returned any e mails since they first got my rifle and I cant get them on the phone. the recording says they don't except messages and to e mail them or send a letter in the mail.
    I'm not trying to badmouth them im just getting a little concerned about being able to use the rifle for hunting this season.
    has anyone heard from them or know what might be going on with them ?
