    Savage 110 pre accu Sav-1


    I did the install and everything seemed amazing. BUT, now when I fire the sear wont reset? The cocking indicator is up when the bolt is opened but once I start to lock the bolt back down the cocking indicator goes down with the bolt?

    Do this test safely, i mean be prepared for a slam fire but depress only the safety blade and close one into the chamber and let us know of it fires.

    No worries. I have been reading so many posts and the only thing that is even close to my issue is increasing the weight of the wire to help engage the sear?

    Yeah you could have on the trigger where the sear engages misshapen, spring to loose, discon not resetting trigger ( thats where my money is) I admit I'm nowhere nearly as well rounded in savages as others in here, I specialize in big bore ARs but I own a few savages that I have learned from and learned to tune thank to our old timer smith here

    I also put the action in a new Bell and Carlson stock as well. The gun looks great and after it was all put together my function tests felt even better. Very crisp trigger compared to my old one. But I shot the gun once last night and the trigger would reset?

    May sound obvious but (dry fire of.course) will everything reset like it should if your take it out of the stock?

    Just loosened up my stock (both action screws) and it re-sets now? Dry firing is fine? Something must not fit in there....?

    Exactly:) your onto it now..somewhere in the action portion of the stock it is binding up.which once you find it , it will like take no more than a little sanding to provide needed relief

    I could even be the rear action screw its self i reckon if some how it goes in to far. Usually the screws are different lengths. Maybe you swapped them?

    Removed some swollen portion of fiber glass behind the trigger in the most rear portion of the action area. I might have time tonight to shoot a few. Or one shot if this doesnít remedy the issue.

    I did swap them! Ok, shame on me... so! I replaced my wooden stock with a Bell and Carlson blind box. Same style stock as my stock wooden one. I replaced my action screws, plastic trigger guard with a metal one and finally my stock pre-accu trigger with the silver Rifle Basixís Sav-1.

    I compared my previous rear action screw with the old one and itís shorter. Once the threads engage I can get four full rotations until itís real tight. Then torquing is another half rotation or more....

    So Iím guessing this action screw is going in too far and binding things up?

    That is very possible, only one real way to know.. i would use the original one after taking length measurements and assuring you are getting plenty of threads engaged

    I will bring a washer with me while I shoot tonight. Four rotations has to be a touch more than needed.

    Just a thought but could you lay the two triggers side by side and compare dimensions. Where they are different maybe a place to look for clearance issues.

    Sounds like he was saying once he removed action from the stock that it cycled/reset like it should, i reckon that could change under real world pressures and use

    Something is causing the binding. To me it sounds like the action screw needs to be shortened and I would look at maybe removing some material from the stock. Savage stocks have been notorious for having action screws bottom out on the action. I normally remove about a turn and a half from the action screws.
