    The new stock comes with 5 comb risers and 4 length of pull spacers plus fasteners, and it costs $90 less than the old one-piece stock? How is that accomplished without diminishing quality?

    Newer production methods (molds that are much cheaper to make), plus they might have lowered their mark-up % a little given the slow down in the market over the last two years.

    What kind of accuracy did you see from shooting this gun?

    So the new 110 designation, there will still be short actions correct?

    Yes. Not sure why Savage decided to use the 3 digit model for long and short actions. I didn't see anything wrong with using 2 digits for short and 3 for long. Someone in their marketing department must have thought it was a good idea. Probably the same guy who thought it would be a good idea to introduce bottom bolt release.

    Simply put, the change was a "far too late" attempt to clean up some of the confusion that has plagued the brand for the last three decades or so. If I had a nickel for every time someone came on here asking "what's the difference between a Model 10 and a Model 11? or a Model 110 and Model 111?" I could have retired a millionaire 10 years ago. The problem is you can't put the horse back in the starting gate after it's left - and that horse left nearly 30 years ago. The damage has been done, and the confusion will always be there because there's nearly 30 years of guns still out there with nearly a dozen different model numbers on them that are all essentially the same thing.

    Savage started with one model number for all variations - the Model 110, and they stuck with it for roughly 15 years before coming out with the 111 Chieftan in 1974 and the 112V in 1975. Both models only remained in production for 5 years. A 112R was a repeater version of the 112V and was offered for two years , but it went by the wayside as well after 1980. It wasn't until the Coburn era that the multitude of model numbers and alphabet soup designations came to be.

    Remington has always been the Model 700.
    Winchester has always been the Model 70
    Savage should have always just been the Model 110

    Like I said though, no matter what they do Savage can never put that horse back in the starting gate.

    Best thing Savage could do - both internally and in regards to making life easier for aftermarket companies - would be to abandon the 110 all together and replace it with something new that's unique to itself. It could still retain all the basic 110 design features (modular bolt, floating bolt head, barrel nut, AccuTrigger, etc), but it would have it's own unique screw spacing and be just different enough that the majority of 110 parts wouldn't be compatible with it. And once they do that, LEAVE IT THE HECK ALONE! NO DESIGN CHANGES!!!!

    Until they do that Savage will never get the aftermarket support that others like Tikka and Remington get because there are too many variations.
