    I purchased a left handed "tactical" bolt handle and have a few questions. I am installing it on a previously owned mdl 10 flp that it appears may have been sold due to primary extraction problems. The rifle is virtually unfired and will not reliably extract cases with the original or new bolt handle (bolt lifts fine but will often not pull straight back...cleaning rod, light tap, drops the bolt back). There are no pressure signs on fired brass. ...

    Here are some data points I think are useful and could be incorporated as a sticky. Since there have been a lot of recent discussions about firing pins, I thought I'd consolidate different data in one thread.

    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. ...

    The standard procedure at Savage for handling customers complaining about ejection and extraction problems is to simply send replace parts until the problem disappears. Like I have explained before, the problems that arise with extraction and ejection are a direct result of a combination of parts with accumulating tolerances. ...

    I've never been able to find a single thread with good photos and detailed explanations of how to adjust a factory trigger on my new-to-me 10FP, so I decided today to snap some pictures and write this thread. ...

    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.

    Ask 100 people how they finish a wood gun stock and you'll likely get 120 different answers. The following is my process for finishing stocks to ensure excellent penetration into the wood.

    First, sand the stock to at least 400 grit. I step up to 600 grit paper for the stock to recoil pad joint making sure the plastic part of the recoil pad is nice and

    I'm sure you are all aware of the flimsy nature of the factory synthetic stock that comes on some Savage models...you should be, we've been over this a thousand times! The great thing about the flimsy factory stock is that it works while keeping the price down. There are however, several very nice upgrades available to the consumer. ...
