I have a Savage 110 in .30-06 with Accutrigger, that I bought brand new last year. It has the black synthetic stock, and I think its just too bland looking. Is replacing a stock on this gun easy? If possible, I'd like to tackle this myself.
I have above average mechanical ability when it comes to working on my truck, but have no experience with modifying firearms... Would I be better off having a gunsmith do it?

Gunsmith? Pfffft. You can do it yourself easily. The stock is held on by 3 screws. Just unscrew those, and the action will lift right out. :)

Sweet. I didnt realize its that easy.
I'm away from home for the weekend, so I didnt have my Savage in front of me to look at. If I had, I guess I wouldnt have needed to ask. :D

I put a Ramline on my 110 Savage. It has a rather plain hardwood stock it came with. The Ramline was already free floated and it improved accuracy a little. I don't like the way it rings when you thump it on something, about the only thing bad I can say about it, but it was pretty cheap.

Just be aware that an older production stock may not be relieved for the Accutrigger if it's been sitting in inventory for a while. Easy to fix with a dremel, but if the trigger locks up after you drop it in that's probably why. I say this because I recently got one from Cabelas and it was that way.
It is an easy DIY job either way.

I just ordered a Frontier Sportster for a Savage project I'm workin' on. Nice looking stocks, decent prices.
I have 2 of these stocks (Sporter and Coyote Stalker) and will be getting a third shortly. Go with the moneysaver version and do it yourself for a lot less. Here is one of the stocks that I finished myself.
