A 62 year old Savage 110 LH


Recommended Posts

A few weeks back I ran up on a deal on here for a Savage 110 LH. Being a correct handed shot I jumped. It was a barreled action with out a stock. Another member was looking at the action as well, he went looking for a stock, in the mean time I bought the action. I have meet the other member in the past, we talked about the action, he turned me on to an OEM stock. I have been fitting the stock in what little spare time I have. Today I striped off the old finish, sanded with fine steel wool, and started to rub on tung oil. In the 2nd pic is another stock I picked up to play with. The finish on the OEM stock is a bit ruff.

Here is the OEM stock after the 1st rub of tung oil. Some of the checkering is missing the diamond tops, I will not try to raise them for fear of messing up the good checkering. I do not have the tools anyway.

My first deer rifle was a Savage 110. They are great, accurate guns. Looks like a great project.

Here is the finished rifle, thanks for all the kind words. Sorry Greg, I am keeping this one, you know how hard it is to find a correct handed rifle.
