Savage 110 7mm Rem Mag Questions
 
Hello my fellow Shooters. I'm new to this Forum. Hoping you can help me with a couple questions regarding a Savage Model 110 7mm Remington Mag.
Is there way short of writing Savage to get some info on the Serial #F891****. I'd like to know when the Rifle was made. It's a pre Accu Trigger model wich leads me to my next question. Is there a good Trigger upgrade available for it? The Trigger pull is OK but not great. I'm not a Gunsmith and would not do the upgrade myself. Just looking for some advice from those who've made the upgrade.

Had some issues last year with my 30.06 and borrowed a friend's Savage 7mm Mag for Deer Season. WOW!! I fell in love and had to have one. I picked one up used at my local Gander Mountain Store.
Got it just as you see it (minus the custom paint on stock, I did that:D) for $525.00
Took it to the Range and was happy to learn it was money well spent. First couple shots went wild but that was me not the Rifle. After a few shots I was driving tacks at 200 Yards. Still, the darn Trigger has to go.

I'll be very grateful for any advise you can give. And feel free to comment on the Rifle, good or bad.

Thanks for the Link. Looks like something any Gunsmith worth his salt could do.
Would doing that be better then getting a new updated trigger?

Updated trigger
 
A drop in trigger is definitely better, but just adjusting the trigger pull down to a manageable level will bring improvement. That is to say, I did not stone or file on the mating surfaces. I took mine down on my model 10 and while not target grade, good enough for hunting. Of course Savage does not recommend you do that, but I tested it via drop method, and have had no problem w/it since I adjusted it down.

It's a cheap alternative, and takes little time.

Timney. I've heard that name many times regarding Triggers. Have you used a Timney Trigger on 110?
Not sure about the Ultra Mags. One of the reasons I'd like to research the Serial #
Can I run a Savage Serial # online or do I have to write a letter to Savage?

hard times is the only reason that gun was on the shelf...can you not put an accu trigger on it...after you learn the accu trigger ,,it the best ive found... some peopls don t realize it has safety factors built in that can fool you into thinking somethings wrong.. slim

Accutriggers can not be retro fitted.

The model 631 is designed to fit all Savage bolt-action center fire rifles manufactured since 1977 (excluding those rifles equipped with the AccuTriggerTM ). The trigger pull weight can be adjusted from 1 ˝ - 4 pounds. In addition it is fully adjustable for sear engagement (creep) and over-travel. EDM cut, CNC machined from solid steel. Case hardened to ensure a lifetime of trouble free operation.

Yeah Slim 60 I think you're right. When I went to Gander Mountain I saw many nice used Rifles and Shotguns. I found myself wondering how many people came in to the store to sell a Firearm, not because they wanted to, but because they had to. These are some very trying times we are in.

Tang, Thank You!!! for the Link:)

Tang 07-27-2009 01:17 PM

You are welcome sir ! Glad to be able to help. You will be hard pressed to find a better trigger than Timney. In fact, I plan to put them in all my Ruger's.

Recoil 07-27-2009 02:14 PM

Could I put a Timney Trigger in myself, or should I leave that to a Gunsmith?
The fact that I even have to ask that question means I should go with the Gunsmith.
Just wondering how hard can it be? I'm a ASE Certified Automotive Technician. I'm qualified to fix your car, not qualified to fix your gun.

It's fairly straight forward and they come with detailed instructions. Buy it, look at it, and then decide for yourself if you feel confident doing it.

Glad to help. I do all my own trigger work, but I know it isn't for everyone.
