i thought iunderstood Savage's numbering system, but i guess not.

i thought the difference between the model 10 and the model 110 was then lenght of the action.

but then i confused about he models 11/111, 12/112, 14/114 and 16/116. can someone help clarify this for me...thanks

you're right, the 2 digit numbers are for short action cals, and the 3 digit are for longs, such as 270, 30.06 , 7 mag, etc.

OK but what's the difference between the models 10, 11, 12, 14 and 16?

4 indicates walnut stock and blued steel.

6 is stainless synthetic.

That's all I know for sure.

For recent rifles, I think 10/110 are the LE (20/24") rifles, 11/111 are package, 12 are varmint (26", sometimes stainless), 14/114 is classic (walnut and blue), and 16/116 are stainless. And then there is a 10 that is a full camo predator.

This is true now, but used to not be; Savage used to not HAVE a short action and all their boltguns had a three-digit model number.

Just something to note if you go buyin' used.

I own an older model 112FV chambered in 223. The receiver is a long action with the mag well blocked to accomodate the shorter rounds. With the 26" barrel, it sure is a tack driver.

There is no understanding Savages nomenclature just give up and get a catalog.
