    Savage Ultralight Proof Research action vs regular action


    Does anybody know the spacing of the new Savage Ultralight Proof Research .308? If I read correctly, anything with the Accufit has a different recoil lug, so I was wondering if anything else is different from the classic actions (4.40 spacing)

    Nobody on here has disassembled the Ultralight?

    It's the same spacing as the standard actions. All they did was mill out areas to take an ounce off of it. That's it.

    The models that use the Accustock have a different recoil lug than the models that don't, like the Lightweight hunter/storm and the trophy hunter. Those have the tapered recoil lug. The actions sold with the Accustock have a recoil lug with parallel sides.

    Newtosavage has it right, but i have to add some clarification so the OP is not confused. The accufit and the accustock are two different things. The accufit uses the traditional recoil lug. The accufit is the one on the ultralite.

    That’s good to know. I just assumed it had the same recoil lug as the Accustock. I was asking about the Ultralight because I have a 10 in B&C and thought if I bought one and don’t like the Accufit I’d swap it.

    You can put a barreled action designed for the accustock into another Savage stock, but not the other way around, if that make sense.

    The only difference being the lug is that correct?

    You're "kinda" right. There are two AccuFit stocks with one being specific to the 110 Ultralite.

    There's the AccuFit that has both the adjustable LOP and adjustable comb height, which also features the AccuStock aluminum skeleton. This is the original AccuFit stock as it was when it was first launched and uses the shorter AccuStock style recoil lug.

    Then there's what I call the AccuFit Lite that has both the adjustable LOP and adjustable comb height, but doesn't have the AccuStock aluminum reinforcement. This is the one that comes on the 110 Ultralite and the aluminum reinforcement skeleton was omitted to help keep the weight down. This one uses a standard full length recoil lug.
