Please explain the "Bad Stock". Depending on the model you had,most people know that the Composite factory stocks from Savage are boat paddles at best.
The Accu-stock is a huge improvement,but I prefer to put a good aftermarket stock on all of my Savage's.
There's a huge selection of good stocks made for Savage rifles,Wood-Laminate-Composite-or Chassis designs. Prices range from $100 to over $1k depending on what you want.
I wouldn't sell a rifle just because the stock was faulty,I'd either fix it or replace it with a better one.
The Accu-trigger is a good trigger,but they do take some getting used to. It is way better than the non Accu-trigger models,but there are several aftermarket triggers available if you choose to go that route.
If you don't operate the Accu-trigger correctly ( You have to pull it straight back). If you don't,the gun will not fire,and you will need to reset the trigger by lifting the bolt up,and then push it back down.
I like the Accu-trigger,but also have a couple with the SSS Competition trigger. The SSS trigger shouldn't be used on a hunting rifle,unless you are used to using one. They are a very light trigger- 8oz to 2lb,depending on how you set them up.
Rifle Basix,Timney make decent triggers for a Savage also.
