Got mine in and soon will send to Nathan Dagley for some gental and sweet loving. Had to sacrafice my Winchester M70 work I was going to have Nathan do in order to get this stock. Of course the $1000 unexpected vet bill did not help my cause out either. Did have to clearance the trigger inletting a little in the front for the timney, but I had to do that with the factory stock as well. Other than that it was a perfect fit.
Rcvd mine about five days ago. this stock is very good looking, low luster finish is perfect... Bolt knob cutout is very smooth, and clean... Overall this stock is very, very well made, fit is near perfect, is substantial to hold and is over all very high quality.
I have installed pillars & bedded the action, I too had to do a little bit of inletting for the trigger (no big deal). Also opened up the barrel channel just a little.
Of very minor note is that the stock action bolts are short even without the bedding. So I'll not be torquing down on them till I get the XL bolts off Stocky's site (very impressed with your site by the way). I will be doing more shopping there for stock needs.
When I first dropped my metal in (this rifle has a Jewel trigger which does generally require a bit of stock adjustment), I expected it'd have to be adjusted also. So I wiggled it around a bit (gently) and it slid right thru the hole with adequate clearance. Might try that.
Doubt they will have time to do a Savage version before fall, they've pushed back a lot of development this summer since they'll be doing stocks for Marlin now (Remington group purchased Marlin and H&R).
