    The two biggest changes we end up doing to the Savage Axis rifles is changing the stock and then the trigger. You can get away with a temp trigger job but one you swap out to a Savage Accutrigger or spring for a Timney trigger it's like night and day.

    Nice as these stocks may be, do they not almost double the weight of your rifle?
    Are there any suppliers of replacement rifle stocks within Canada, or a Boyds distributor in Canada?
    Dealing with Canada customs on anything to do with firearms is not usually a very fun experience.

    Would appreciate any information or links that anyone may have.

    Thanks

    I didn't mention that I bedded the action on the Boyd's as well when I it changed over.

    Didn't think to look for a Timney for it. Now the thought is in my head....... thanks.. not sure but I think it does have the accutrigger. Of course I have no idea where the little tool is for adjusting them. How low can you set the accutriggers? I've gotten kind of spoiled with other rifles - three Timneys and a Trigger Tech all at about a pound and a half ish

    Probably add quite a bit to it for sure but wouldn't think double. Depends on what the purpose is. If you are building a rifle for sheep and want super light to pack up a mountain then it isn't for you.
    As far as ordering. I've ordered three from them direct and there hasn't been an issue. The biggest thing to remember when ordering is to specify shipping via USPS (U.S. Postal Service) do not go UPS or other courier as you will have to give a nut for customs/duty charges through them. Overall a good experience and would order direct again.

    The accutrigger has this silver internal part of the trigger with the holes. The accutrigger can adjust from 1.5/2 lbs to 6 lbs.

    Grey_Wolf. How long did it take for shipping. From the time you ordered the stock? I ordered a forest green laminate for the 300 Win Mag.


    It doesn't matter whether the gun they have is illegal or not they don't care about laws in the first place. You could make every gun illegal and you would still have these guys armed to the teeth it's not laws against guns we need laws against criminals !
