    12fv bolt problem

    I have a new Savage12fv in .308. The bolt was smooth as glass until I put a EGW 20 MOA base on it. Then the problem started. When pulling it back it acts like it is dragging and gets hard to pull about half way back. Ive checked the screws on the base and they arenít sticking down. What can be causing the issue? Is the scope base binding the action by making it to stiff? Help!!!!! Lol

    I would try and remove the base and then check. If it works fine I would put the base on 1 screw at a time until I found the one giving me the problem. Typically it's the base screws that cause that type of issue. It doesn't take much of the screw coming into the action to create that dragging issue. Good luck and keep us posted if you find the fix!

    That was my thought. Iíll try that. I have already tried to loosen the bottom screws to check for binding. Even with the few problems Iíve had Iím impressed with the shooting of the so called cheap and crappy savages! FWIW I have a friend that shot the Axis I have and liked the trigger and group size better than his Tikka T3!!!
