I have an older savage model 12 and I was wondering if I could put an accu-trigger in my rifle?
IIRC, the bottom of the actions are machined differently and they won't interchange. check out the Timney triggers for the older Savage rifles.
From Savage Customer Service FAQs-
Can I purchase the Target AccuTrigger and install it?

We do not sell the Target Accutrigger to retrofit to other models. Since it is a very sensitive trigger, we have a warning stamped on the receiver of those models to emphasize the importance of caution when using that trigger. At this time, we are unable to stamp that warning on any other receivers
Can I do it on a model 116?
Or are all the older savages the same?
All of the older models, and pre-accutrigger guns are similar. An accutrigger won't fit. The Savage 110/10, 111/11, 112/12, 116 guns have a pretty simple trigger for adjusting and improving to a point. If you want something crisper and lighter, and shorter in pull, then the Timmney is an excellent trigger, and cost would probably be similar to buying a replacement accutrigger.
The stock trigger is adjustable though for weight and travel. It may get you where you want to be without spending any extra money. Google is your friend for finding tutorials on adjusting a pre-accutrigger Savage.
Doc is pretty much spot on and i would add this for you to think about. if you adjust the trigger, then please make sure you do a safety procedure check afterwards. the trigger is part of the safety system of any firearm and any changes need to be made sure they are still safe after making adjustments.
Timney as Doc said makes an excellent aftermarket trigger and i have used a few of them in the past on different rifles with excellent results. i do recommend them as well.
Ok if I change anything I'll take it to a
gunsmith and have them do it. I trust my LGS they have been in business for over 50 years.
that sounds like an excellent plan. let us know how it turns out.
Probably the best. The sear engagement and trigger weight have to be strong enough for field use invade you were to trip, drop the gun, etc.
Yeah that's what I was thinking also. Thanks for the help guys!
If you really want an Accu-Trigger installed on your older Savage,contact Kevin Rayhill at Stockade Custom Stocks. He will install one on your rifle,and do it right.
