And the manual that comes with the gun covers a bunch of different guns, with a bunch of different options, not just this gun.

I believe the little things that you can see often say a lot about the big things you can’t see. Like if a restaurant bathroom is cruddy, the kitchen might be, too.

So far, I am not feeling good about Savage customer service. In this day and age to not accept e-mails is just plain poor IMO.
Steve,Just call Savage,they do have a toll free #.They will do you right.

P.S. If you have an eye glass screwdriver,it will work just as good as the factory tool.
I will send you one if you can't get in contact with Savage.

The savage 93 17hmr I bought 3 years ago must have been one that was done at 4:30 on a friday. Looked like they twisted a bit off drilling the action out. Bolt would get cocked and stick. Sent it back to savage and got it back the same way I sent it. I put less than 50rds through it and dumped it off at a gun show a week after I got it back. Savage had it back at there shop longer than I had it. Sorry but that was the first and last savage I'll ever own.

I am not a Savage basher -- I have 3 now. But I put lots of stock in good customer service, and a poor (one manual for almost every gun we sell) manual and not accepting e-mail is not good customer service. I'll get around to calling -- but it is a pain -- e-mail is so much easier.

Thanks for the offer, though, Tx.

Here's today's cold bore shot at 50 yards with my savage edge in .308, which is currently zero'd at 50 yards to shoot in my backyard shooting range, so i can check zero and shoot it frequently. It shoots the same as my Savage edge in .223, which i took my deer with this year. Confidence in an accurate rifle, both cold-bore and once it's warm from multiple shots is the reason i could use my little gun for deer before i even bought my new one. the .223 wasn't my first choice, for deer, but it was a last minute invite, it was what I had, and it worked great because it was accurate and i could shoot it. Speaks well for the new rifles i think.
