    Advise on Elite Precision action/trigger spring


    Recently did a out of box inspection and clean on my new 100 Elite Precision in 6.5 CM.
    Noticed the end of a spring protruding out 1/8" from the action on right side under the closed bolt handle.
    Being new to Savages, I have never seen this before nor can I locate any pics on line showing this
    area. The spring tension appears to be affected by movement of the safety mechanism.
    Is this normal? Have a call in to Savage CS 5 days ago, but no response so far.

    Somehow the safety retaining spring may not have been installed correctly. That spring should look the same on both sides of the trigger hanger

    Hmm.. it’s really easy to post a picture. Use your phone, upload picture on here: https://imgbb.com/ After uploading, click on picture & hit the “About” up/down arrows on the left and copy the BBCode. Finish by simply pasting the copied link. It’s insanely easy.

    Without seeing it, the only “Spring” I can think is the the straight leg of the Accutrigger spring positioned in a pin hole drilled in the receiver tang. I’ve never thought of really looking at it though. My Accutriggers use a custom setup. It certainly shouldn’t be protruding 1/8” though??

    Nevermind... safety is blocking the spring from sight. It’s what Robin said.

    My bad. Thought new members could not post any attachments (including pics).
    Hopefully this works.

    Well, it seams to be proprietary to the Elite. Looks like it’s taking the place of a pin. Not sure.

    But seems to be normal. Here it is in another pictured rifle from online.

    EDIT: it’s part of the Accutrigger. Like Robin said. Here it is. Just the angle looked weird in the pic.

    The Elite action appears different from the standard model 10. I like it...looks seriously beefed up!

    Something looks odd about the back end of the action.

    Right?? It looks proprietary on the Elite. Weird indeed. But I do like it would love to find it in a stripped Action.

    The rifle in the picture has the wrong bolt assembly screw on it. Other than that, there is nothing different about the Elite except for the finish on the bolt.

    I zoomed in on it and what I thought I saw, was an optical illusion.

    The Elite uses the same BAS and firing pin as the Axis. That one piece dealy.

    Finally a response from Savage CS.
    Bottom line, spring is barrel shaped and used to provide tension on safety.
    It can not fall out. Protrusion is normal on both sides of action.
    Thanks for the pic Dave, now I can proceed with outfitting the rifle with some accessories.

    Yes, the bolt does look different. What I assume is a bolt assembly screw has a center cocking indicator?
    Need to research bolt disassembly further even though manual says to avoid bolt disassembly!?
    I think this is due to the bolt assembly being matched to the receiver at factory.
    I did suggest factory provide a updated manual on the Elite Series rifles as they are several areas I found
    in the supplied manual (Model 10/110LE series and Model 12/112 Target Series) that just do not provide
    sufficient information for the end user.

    Robin actually got it in the beginning! I was confused at first with your closeup picture, until I found that first pic in the link I posted.
