    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. ...

    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.

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.

    have always admired compact hunting rifles. Their short stature, lightweight, and balance make them a good choice if you hunt in heavy brush country, thick forests, and swamplands where a traditional long rifle really isn't needed.

    Practice at the rifle range leads to successful long shot varmint hunting.  Factory orange & white test targets.

    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.
