Default Savage Makes An Adjustable Stock! (Finally!)

(this is a summary of info I've learned from listening to a savage advert while driving, and a phone call to their parts department. Any errors are mine, and errors are likely)

They are seriously revamping their 110/111/112/116/etc... line. Simplifying their HORRIBLE model number scheme, and making various improvements.

Their model names will now be more along the lines of "110, long action, stainless).

They have a new adjustable stock which Savage's parts department just told me IS compatible with my last-year's-model 111, although it won't be for sale as a separate part for 6-8 months.

They also have AICS compatible bottom metal in their new model. The podcast advert said something about having to move the bolt release to make it fit, but in the website photo the bolt release seems the same.

The savage magazines SUCK... if the bottom metal isn't compatible with mine, I may very well buy a new rifle... but I'll give it a year.

There has always been AICS bottom metal available, it just costs a lot. Or, if you can find the Savage bottom metal from a few years ago. They used to come from the factory with AICS-type mag from the factory.

Savage said their new Accu-fit stuff works on your old stock? Wonder how that could work.

It's not just the naming system that is the problem.
They have so many different screw spacings and action shapes within the same model numbers over the years that you have to be VERY careful when buying parts to get the correct ones to fit the action you have.

That will never go away as those hundreds of thousands of legacy actions are still out there in the hands of confused shooters...

and they made this problem worse by re-using the 110 name.

I actually have been looking for a good 30 ought 6 hunting rifle. That looks pretty solid with the Accu stock and accutrigger.

I'm far from an expert, but I really like my Savage. Good trigger for an off-the-shelf rifle, not very heavy, and shoots well.

The bolt operation feels a bit nicer than my wife's 700.

My biggest issue is the difficulty in finding adjustable stocks that don't cost a fortune, and the expensive, crappy design magazines.

I've never fired one or held one, but based on my experience with my "last year's model' I'd have no issue suggesting you look at the new "this year's model" Savage rifles. Based on press releases, it seems to have fixed both my issue with my rifle.

They need to bring back the Stevens 200. It's basically the same as their old 110.

Sportsmens Warehouse in Avondale, AZ had a Skao A7 on close out for $800. Very nice rifle for the money. I'm just not in the need of a 30-06.

I got my .30-06 with iron sights from Big 5 - one of the best purchases Iíve made. Awesome rifle.
