The 12 F/TR rifles we've been using since 2007 started out, and still are, pretty much stock. Not exactly 'bone' stock anymore, but nothing earth-shattering or out of the reach of someone else with one of these rifles.Did the Savage team use factory stock rifles at the Worlds to win all that hardware or are they just using the actions and stocks then filling the internals with as many custom parts as they can and using a barrel that just looks factory ?
No, not totaly "Out of the Box", if you get your choice of 5 barrels, because the other 4 didn't match up.
When I purchase a rifle, I doubt they will have 5 rifles in stock, with one of them being anywheres as good as the five you got. When they sent you the barrels, didn't they know they were sending them to a person on THEIR team? I imagine they were scoped by somebody on THAT end, then re-inspected by you, and You had the option to ask for another one....I won't get that at the White-Elephant, nore anywheres else either.
Wouldn't that just start something with rifle manufactures! Love to see it.....
