Default Savage 22 stock question

I have a Svage Model 93. SS, bull barrel, 22 mag., LH action, thumbhole laminated stock. Would it be a normal condition for the barrel to be touching the stock on one side, and about 1/16" from the stock on the other? You cannot slide a piece of paper down between the barrel and the stock. Seems like this is wrong to me, but how about some opinions before I go complaining to Savage Cust. Service. Thanks

Is it accurate? If it shoots good groups I wouldn't worry about it. Unless its brand new and really bothers you.

No, it is not normal or correct. It is either improperly bedded or the stock is warped.

Loosen up the bolts and see if you can shift it to clear. Or grab a wooded dowel rod and some sand paper and make it right. Then clear coat it. It happens ,not often but typicaly does not take much to make right.

Yeah, it's a brand new gun. The screws have been loosened, but the stock won't reposition. I have only shot it once, and it shot a max. 3 1/4" 5 shot group from 200 FEET. Right out of the box, boresighting only, only tried one kind of ammo. Not too bad, but I'd hate to leave any accuracy on the table because of this. Would any of you pester Savage about this?

yes definately if the rifle is new. i get groups half that size at 200 yards out my Savage M93. 200 feet is only a little over 66 yards and your groups should be much better than that. sounds like the stock may be causing the barrel to shoot eratic groups. 3 1/4" groups at the distances you're shooting at would be unacceptable to me and would look into either getting it fixed or replaced.

Although it isn't the way it should be right out of the box.The easiest thing to do would be to free float the stock yourself.
If you send the gun back to Savage,they might have it for month's,and you can fix it yourself in just a few minutes with a piece of PVC pipe and some Sandpaper like Hardluk1 said.

Most 22wmr's are very picky about the ammo they shoot.All 3 of mine like different ammo,you just have to find what your gun likes.

Yeah. I agree with you guys. While I haven't gotten it dialed in, and my eyes do suck, I'd hate to give up accuracy for this. Actually, I don't really care if they have it for a month (or months), they should be held to fixing it.
