    I'm in the midst of this build on a model 11 action with stagger feed blind .223 sized box, here is what i have found so far. The tiny lil 17 round looks very lost in the .223 mag, but mine feeds like a champ. I have the copper colored extractor, it's dropping the loaded rounds before they can be pulled back far enough to eject. ...

    This information only applies to Savage Model 110's made between 1958 and 1965.
    I have a 1960 vintage 110 with the same trigger mechanism you are speaking of. I also have several post '66 vintage 110's that have the "new" trigger. After using both---my personal preference is the "old" trigger.

    It is not uncommon when visiting an outdoor shooting range during the fall to find an extensive variety of firearms being shot. From rimfires to centerfires and black powder muzzleloaders to black powder cartridge rifles, many shooters sighting-in the newest shotgun slugs or sabots checking targets with a spotting scope then making sight adjustments.

    Last summer I happened to pick up a stainless steel barrel at a very cheap price. It was a rather unusual looking piece being it had been fluted in a radial pattern. It was also different in the fact it had started life as a 22" medium sporter contour .243 Winchester caliber and was now a 20" 6mm BR Norma. ...
