After Market Triggers for Savage 110


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Some Suggestions: I have had some good results shooting lead bullets from an older Savage 110 FP. This older rifle lacks the Accu Trigger. To aggravate things trigger work has been done by the Bubba Custom Shop. Suggestions on what triggers work and what's to be avoided. Thanks for your help.

Just curious. What is the approximate (non accu-trigger) 110 factory trigger pull weight?

Honestly, the fitment if parts can often be such that the rifle basix can disappoint. If Bubba really messed up that three screw so badly, just buy new, non bubba 3-screw parts and adjust it yourself.

Fixing trigger? Personal Preference?

Fixing trigger? Personal Preference?:Good question. I would have been apt to ask help on fixing the older factory trigger. There are some good instructions on the net for adjusting the Savage trigger. It became apparent that the easy way to get the rifle running was to install an aftermarket trigger. There was no interest in tinkering with the factory trigger that already had some problems. In my case it was an personal preference. So far, we have had some good feedback on this topic.

The topic of fitting the Basix trigger has surfaced elsewhere. I am unsure if this was a trigger problem or one of changes in specs of 110's over that rifles long life. I feel comfortable this concern will be addressed shortly.

The minimum suggested trigger pull is three pounds (varminthunters.co). I was seeking a full range of safe adjustments without fear of unintentional discharge. The trigger is to be professionally installed-I know my limitations. Those varminhunters instructions are very well written and worth the read if you have an interest in Savage factory triggers.

I have four Rifle Basix SAV-1 installed on Savage 10/110s, and all provide the same quality of pull. The original Savage trigger is NOT worth paying money for. If you want one, find somebody who's replaced theirs with a decent trigger and they'll gladly donate it. Want one? I have four you can have.

Thumbs down Gift Triggers NOT !!!!!

Personal Opinion:Thanks for the offer. Maybe you could use three or four old style Remington 700 Triggers? I'm deeply un-enchanted with Savage triggers. For most purposes they're fine-but not what I'm working on. Savages are great rifles save some low end Tupperware and, of course, the triggers. Looks like the vote goes for Basix.

Exactly correct. I have four lower end Savage 10/110 rifles from 223 to 300 Win Mag, and they all have exactly two modifcations: A Rifle Basix Sav-1 and an aftermarket stock (three Boyds laminate, one Houge overmold bedblock). All are excellent with these two supremely simple changes.

I can't remember they guy's name but I bet someone on here knows it. I think he's in Ohio and specializes in Savages. He has a trigger he makes for them that supposed to be a good trigger. Over on the savage forum he seem's well liked.`

Better call Fred then, the 3-screws are worth some money; just have to understand how to adjust them.
Appreciate it though. Short of Painless, I refuse to deal with Savage QC and have rid myself of them.

They can't be safely adjusted to a 1.5# pull like a Rifle Basix can; and before the comments start that trigger under 3# aren't safe or needed, don't want to hear it, thanks. Go shoot your own rifle.

After Market Trigger?

Since this thread was started another project Savage came this way in parts. Plans are to put the rifle back together to get it running. One of the benefits of getting an aftermarket trigger is ease of adjustment. That's all fine and well if you have that long experience with the Savage. I rather cut to the chase than tinker with the Savage trigger. Still looks like the Rifle Basix is the winner.

Also, if have found the much maligned Hogue stock worked just fine on my first project 110.

Shawn, I agree that many triggers can safely be adjusted that low.

William,
Glad to hear about the stock, let us know about the trigger when all is said and done.

As a point of clarification, and speaking to the QC that you are aware of. My personal grievances with the Savage triggers, and carrying to the Basix is due to the mount. At least the early models of the that trigger, used the same mounting as the stock trigger. That stamped sheet metal bracket is not done carefully, typically anyhow. So a good trigger in a poorly mounted hanger can be a let down. Also the early ones(maybe still??) re-used the factory sear, which can be poorly stamped.

If you want to play with the basket case 3-screw trigger, I've got some pictures of "who's on first" for adjustment at home.

Having had the pleasure of visiting with 'Mr Timney' way back in 1986 prior to a mule deer hunt above Casper, Wyoming and witnessed the care and attention to detail in making his triggers etc., I have always used his triggers and have never been disappointed.

For the Savage 10/110, that's my experience.

I put a 300 Win Mag Savage 110 in a Hogue overmold w/bedding block, despite the mixed reviews. Completely satisfied with its performance. Additional benefit is the rubber coating is very comfortable to the touch in my cold Canadian environment.
