Mike- welcome to the forum. Drop by the intro thread and say hello when you get a minute.

These riles have been out of production for some time. You can check with Savage customer service, and there are SOME used parts from Numrich- HERE: http://www.gunpartscorp.com/Manufacturers/SavageStevensSpringfieldFox-33479/Rifles-40502/87RifleSeries-39863/87A-34285.htm?results=All

These rifles were known as "click clack" rifles because you have to hold the trigger back for the rifle to recock then release it to fire again. Not knowing this will cause the rifle to jam and damage the extractor eventually.

I have a Westernfield SB 808c which is the same. It's also the same as a Savage 6 & 87. I get parts for it at POPPERT'S GUNSMITHING online.

I purchased a breach bolt for it and it doesn't work as smoothly as the original. A new extractor for the original bolt worked best.

Not a bad rifle once you get used to the unusual operation.

Jim

The bolt will stay back as long as the trigger is held back but it will fire as fast as anything else. Mine will jam occasionally with anything other than CCI but those run like grease through a goose.
