View Full Version : OT: Savage Arms Cust Service
October 19, 2001, 14:53
Felt like they needed an ataboy. I had taken apart my bolt and coudn't get it back together. They said mail it to them. After mailing i found half of the parts were still my couch. I just received the reassembled bolt back free of charge.
I have a model 112, 300 win mag. It was a tack driver out of the box. I would have recommended their rifles before, but now I would strongly recommend them to anyone looking for a good hunting bold gun.
(Don't send me anything for assenbly for a while, and why do I always have parts left when they go back togther.

I have a 110 FP Tactical. An absolute gem, and it'll out-tack a stock 700 any day.

I was going to buy a Savage as my Bolt Gun, but instead got a Steyr SBS. I didn'ty like the safety on teh Savage, and the Steyr just looks cool :-)
It's good to see that Savage remember's customer service, since most of the time I only hear about bad CS anymore...

I had the honor of putting a scope and mounts on a Savage, Then sighting in the 7mm Mag for a co-worker. The rifle's look and feel was impressive. It out-shoots rifles costing two to three times as much.

I must be the only person to buy one that didn't shoot. I bought an 110FP in .223 on the adviced of several owners I know. I wanted a bolt action in 1-9" to shoot 69 gr. match bullets. My AR's out shot it. Worst shooting bolt action .223 I ever owned and I've owned a few. The stock and trigger stank. Never even considered another, well there was that laminated target job. Eventually ended up with the 700 PSS in 1-9".

I' too have had excellend dealings with Savage customer service. I've got a 111 FP in 7mm Rem Mag, and a 110 FP in 7mm-08 Rem. I never could get the 7 Mag to group, and from looking at it, I suspected that the action/barrel were poorly bedded. Before spending $$ on glass bedding, I gave Savage a call. I got to "I think it's not bedded right. . ." and the Cust. Serv. rep said "Send it in, we'll fix it."
so $10 and 3 weeks (they'd said 4-6) later, I got my rifle back with a BRAND NEW, stock and a test target with a nice 100 yard 5 shot cloverleaf. :eek:
When I took it to the range the next day, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the factory had also adjusted the trigger (I hadn't gotten to that yet.) My $300 Savage will now outshoot my dad's $700 Rem 700 (same caliber) with the $50 action/trigger job.
And through all this, Savage charged me $0. Great service from those folks. :D :D

Had heard that Savage rifles were one of the "best kept secrets" out there for a tack driver/tactical rifle, right out of the box. Happy to hear such a good report. Now, just need to find the $$.........

I bought a Mod. 10 Tactical in .308. It's the cheapest ($) fat barreled .308 bolt I could find. 3/4 MOA right out of the box with federal match. Once I got the LOL figured out, it's 1/2 MOA with my handloads. Trigger is fully adjustable, clean at 2 1/2 lbs. Never have I gotten so much rifle for so little money. I just wish they would make a chambering in the new .300 Win. short.

let 'em know GreenFal,they love to make&sell really good rifles.

overall length&bore are same as .308,according to Guns&Ammo review.&
since the Savage Headspace is easily adjusted,seems like a decent smith could use a reamer to modify the chamber of a .308,Check Headspace& voila!

I will send (by snail mail) "A" it would be nice and when might you be making a rifle chambered for the 300 Win. short mag.! As to converting a .308 to do the job. There is quite a large difference in cartridge case dia. between the two.

What does "FP" stand for?
November 05, 2001, 09:34
Hey Rifleman44, the "FP" F stands for synthetic stock and the P stands for Police
