Savage Custom Shop
 
Anyone ever ordered a custom Savage? I'm having them re-barrel a 93R SS LH 17 HMR into a 22 mag. Ordered Feb 7, they said UP TO 6 weeks, and it's still not here. No word from them, either. All they had to do was call and say why it's late, but now I'm not too happy. What are the REAL lead times in other people's experience?

Varies on the gun/barrel. Try callin customer service and find out what the hold up is

What varies on the gun/barrel? They're basically the same guns, simple swap, I'd say. The guy who ordered it is going to call tomorrow, the point is, they should have called us.

You could have sent it to them for the work. Middle man not needed. Your kinda at the middle mans mercy now. Firearm parts are at times out of stock. Not allways in inventory and if out of stock they also have to wait for the next production run to get whats needed for the barrel swap. Might have been cheaper to sell the 17 and buy a 22mag.

Well, from my understanding, both guns are based on the same receiver, the 93. All cartridges involved are in the same family. (17HMR being derived from 22MAG.) This is a brand new gun being ordered special with the barrel swap, no middleman, except for my LGS had to order it. They're charging $95, so the labor cost to do the job can't be that great.

The reason I'm going there in the 1st place is that I wanted a LH, SS bolt, wood stock, 22 mag, ect. The donor gun fit the bill, except for the barrel, so.......

Guess if you LGS does not follow up in a timely fashon then you get the work order number and do so. Might be the best way for to find the truth out. I guess you have your serial number to use too.

They will not call you. They have better things to do,and won't call just one customer about rimfire rifle.
If you want to find something out,get off your a** and call Savage-Talk to Effie Sullivan,she is over all of the custom ordered guns thru the Savage Custom Shop.

Yeah, I could call her, but my phone is over there, and my ass is comfortable. :D

LGS said he'd call her. I didn't REALLY expect them to call, but that would show excellent customer service, of which there is not much of nowadays......

Same here, ordered 12 lrpv in 243 with 1:8 twist and threaded barrel for 5/8-24 suppressor. Last month had no answer on delivery time, promised 8-10-weeks..it has been 13 so go figure. Better off buying 6Norma BR off the shelf on Gunbroker and re-barreling with Shilen, Hart, Krigger..., quicker and cheaper...Never again!!! live n learn :-)
