Default Cant identify new rifle

I bought a used rifle a few weeks ago and I cant figure out what model it is! I know its a savage and its chambered in 7mm rem mag and I know the serial number but the previous owner spray painted it so i cant make out the words on the barrel. Any help identifying is greatly apreciated!

Can you trace the serial number to see what rifle it is assigned to? I don't imagine you want to remove the paint from the words on the barrel.

See if you can go to the Savage website and "build" your gun. Select caliber, trigger, stock etc and see what comes up.

i will second the 110 guess.

i dont believe savages offers a 7mm mag in anything but the 110 action.

the 110 is the most likely it would be, but it could be either a 111, or a 114 or even a 116 depending on whether the stock is original or not, and whether it's stainless steel under the paint.

Will paint stripper damage the original finish tho? If I clean all the paint off I dont want to have to repaint it. This is going to be my elk rifle and I need it to be a pretty tough gun as far as hard to scratch and rust resistant.

If you can read the SN, call Savage Customer Service.

(413) 642-4260 for Historical Information

(413) 642-4261 for Instruction Manuals


There were at least 2 models in that caliber.
