    Over the years Savage Arms has used four different twist rates on their firearms chambered for the .223 Remington cartridge. This is primarily due to the increase in bullet weights being used by the U.S. Military and NATO ammunition, and as the bullet weights went up the twist rate had to increase accordingly to ensure bullet stabilization. Savage has used 1-7", 1-9", 1-12" and 1-14" twist rates for rifles chambered in .223.

    All the threads on the forum requesting the date of manufacture are getting a little out of hand and thus we (the staff) have come to the conclusion that we will no longer be dating any rifles with a serial number beginning with a letter. This is because these guns aren't that old and the letter prefix itself will give you a relative idea of when the rifle was manufactured. The "dating" service is intended more for dating and documenting the older collectable guns that are no longer in production and were made prior to 1968.

The change-over was drawn out over the course of four years which in many cases makes it difficult to say whether any particular rifle equipped with a blind magazine from those years would have a staggered or center-feed magazine. ...
