How to bed it?

How to bed it?

A few drinks maybe?:neener:

But seriously, bedding should be the same as any other rifle. Depending on how it shoots, it may not even need it.

I ordered the new stock. Featherweight thumbhole in nutmeg. I'm still waiting for it to ship.

Did you order longer action screws? You'll need 'em.

Savage says I can use the originals but I'll order longer if I need them for sure.

Boyd's told me I needed the longer ones and after I got my stock and screws I found out ....they were right. Mine was for a Stevens Model 200SA,same as a savage model 10. It may possibly be different for the Axis.

If Boyd's knows you need longer screws, why don't they just include them with stock and adjust the price? Doesn't make sense that a company knows the customer needs them and does not include them with the stock.

why don't they just include them with stock Because if your original stock is wood it doesn't need longer screws. It's only when you go from synthetic to wood that the screw length changes.

From the Boyd's website for Savage.http://www.boydsgunstocks.com/product.htm?pid=9191&cat=1223 This may or may not apply to the Axis.

I got the new stock. I did not need to purchase longer screws. The OEM screws worked just fine.
Took a awhile to fit the new stock but that was because I have a Timney trigger in my Axis. Tomorrow is the first range day for both the new trigger and the new stock.

Mohave-Tec I just ordered my Boyd's stock for my Axis .308 and I have the Timney Trigger. What kind of fitting did you have to do for it?

You won't have to do anything to yours. Mine was a first run stock. The small issues have been worked out of them now so you should have a drop in fit.
That Boyd's stock, a Timney trigger on the Axis creates a top shelf rifle that is better than a "better" Savage rifle at the same expense.

I'm getting ready to order one of their stocks soon. Let us know how it shoots with the new stock

I already know how it shoots. It makes a better rifle than a like Savage in the same price range. It's in its own thread somewhere close around here as is several other recent post about a 2 way or 3 way mix of Boyd's/Axis/Timney.

Thanks for the info. I already get MOA groups out of it with my handloads and current setup which is a EGW 20moa rail, Warne rings, and a Redfield Revenge 4-14x42. I've just been waiting for someone to make a stiffer stock and Boyd's did it. It'll probably really tighten up my groups now. Hope it gets here quick.

This thread - about putting a new stock on a rifle - is woefully void of pictures.

Ordered my stock! I got the classic in pepper. Will post some photos when I get it. Also Savage is coming out with the Axis II that now has the accutrigger....took them long enough! Either way I have to say I like how my Timney trigger feels compared to the accutrigger on my Model 10 FCP-K .308.

That's a good-looking rifle, Mojave-tec.

Mohave-Tec I got the new stock but...problems getting the Timney trigger to work. What kind of fitting did you too?

You just got to figure out where it is hitting a dremmel it out. Tiny moves.

I examined the stock further the adjustment nut on the trigger is hitting the top of the trigger guard.

savagegunfighter23
January 31, 2014, 11:32 PM
So I added come spacers under the trigger guard and the adjustment screw no longer hits so I can fully tighten the action without a problem.

Mohave-Tec

Sense I would never need all the travel the screw alows I ground off the screw a little and I dremmeled a borrow under the screw.

Yeah i thought about doing that but didn't want to mess up so the washers are doing their job. I think I might have got a early run the stock it's dated November of 2013. The stock is really nice and I like the finish, look and feel of it.
