    Where does a fella get one of these?

    Barrel nuts galore but no recoil lugs.:confused:

    iggy,

    Thanks for the pointer.

    Keep us posted how that Savage shoots for you Roy. I'm building a .308 off a 110 action that I had tucked back in the safe.

    Are you looking for an original factory lug or an aftermarket precision ground lug. I cusom rebarrel Savages all the time. I have a selection of both factory lugs or Aftermarket precision ground lugs. Fred and Lisa at Sharp Shooters will have them as well as Brownells and MidwayUSA. I recomend if you are going to use a precision ground lug you lso get your action and the nut faced. Make sure if the new lug has a guide for the lug that it has less height than the depth of the indent in the action.

    I like Shawn Carlocks's DE recoil lugs for the Savage, extra thick and precision ground flat. Also no need to deepen the recoil lug pocket in the stock. Highly reccomended.

    Rustystud,

    I got the action from James Jones who was gracious enough to square the face and lap the lugs (I really like doing bidness w/the folks on this board:D)

    Seeing as I'm not too accomplished:rolleyes: in the metal work department, squaring a nut would be a unlikely by me. Do you have such a thing. Send a PM w/details. OK?

    Montour: Is there not anything that Shawn doesn't do and do it well? BTW, congrats on your son's first chuck. I think it would be a good goal to shoot his weight in chucks this summer.;)

    Squarring up Barrel nut..

    Roy:

    I chuck up the nut on a barrel stub and face the with a lathe bit. Just enugh to insure a flat surface all the way around.

    I do this as part of my timing and truing to a Savsage action.

    Can any of y'all recommend a smith in Houston Texas that you would trust to have this done? Trued action, nut, lug, ect.
