i was looking for spare mags for this rifle and after taking a real close look at the mag very lightly stamped on the side was "accurate-mag". taking a look at their site: Accurate-Mag.com they offer bottom metal kits for the savage accustocks basicaly its what came on my savage.

cost is under 200$ for a detachable 5-10 round. they also offer the kit for remingtons but prices are 350$+

the ruger gunsite rifle uses the same bottom metal and mags.

nice rifle...is that 300 win-mag? BTW if your looking for mags try alphaindmfg.com their mags fit better in my Ruger and are shorter by about an inch. They are in the final stages of a shorter 5 rd mag also.

Price for all the features isnt a bad deal. Especially for the way ive seen similar savages shoot.

One other thing if i end up liking the stock im gonna have it primered then digi camoed pink. The stock not the gun
Sweet rifle I wish they had something with the large capacity mags when I bought my FCP-K.

The bolt will smooth out with use but you can help it along. I have seen some of the efforts folks put into bolt kits and it doesn't seem worth the trouble but I was able to improve mine with a bit of emory paper and metal polish.
You can get much lighter lift feel by polishing the surfaces shown (make sure to do the ramp)

So as to not actually remove metal, I used water with a very fine emory paper followed by some metal polish to smooth the finish on the mating surfaces. I also used the poilsh on the edges of the lugs and the bolt works like butter

thanks its getting a lot smoother with use. if you have a accustock and 308cal accumag makes bottom piece that mine has. any accustock i think in 308 or 300wm can be upgraded to a detachable 10 round mag
