Bell & Carlson
Up for bid is a Bell & Carlson Medalist™ Classic Riflestock for Savage 3-digit long action (i.e. models 110, 112, 116 chambered in .30-06, .270 Win, 300 Win mag, etc.) pre or post Accu-Trigger right-hand rifles with 5.1" inch takedown screw spacing measured from the center of the takedown screws (the front and middle screws which secure the action to the stock) and blind magazine. Weight 2 lbs 4 oz; overall length 32"; length of pull 13.5". Color is black with black spiderweb texturing. Drop-in fit, no inletting required. This stock will not fit Savage short action cartridge model 110e models. Will not fit detachable magazine models. Note: Savage rifles have been produced with two styles of trigger guards. This stock will accomodate both styles, but the older style trigger guard will protrude about 1/8" from the bottom of the stock when installed. For a clean look some minor modification of the trigger guard may be required.
Savage rifles are a beautifully simple modular design, unfortunately they tend to have a reputation for poor accuracy due to the poor design of the factory stock. This Bell & Carlson Medalist stock improves the look, comfort, and accuracy of your Savage rifle in several ways! Suitable for hunting, target, tactical, and sniper work alike, the traditional design makes it easy to shoot offhand, prone, or at the bench! The forend has a flat underside to allow you to easily stabilize the rifle on sandbags or a rest. Has two sling swivels in the front so you can mount a bipod as well as a sling, and the rear stud is suitable for mounting a monopod for the utmost accuracy! The paint splatter texturing enhances your grip on the rifle and the stock will easily take a paint job if you want to customize it! Reliable over a temperature range of -50ºF to + 140ºF, and covered by Bell & Carlson's lifetime warranty. These stocks are sold out everywhere I looked and the retail price is over $350, so don't miss your chance to get the most useful upgrade you can find for your Savage rifle!
The Bell & Carlson Medalist stock design increases contact with your shoulder to improve recoil distribution over a larger area for lower felt recoil. A Pachmeyer Decellerator recoil pad is fitted to the stock to further reduce the kick! The cheek comb has a slight negative comb angle that lets your cheek fall away from the stock during recoil eliminating “cheek slap.” The end result once installed is a rifle that is an absolute joy to shoot!
The Medalist stock is one of the lightest and strongest designs available, they are constructed of solid structural urethane combined with aramid, graphite and fiberglass materials to enhance strength without excess weight. A precision, CNC-machined aluminum bedding block and skeleton makes contact with the full length of the rifle's action, ensuring a perfect metal-to-metal fit as well as aligning the barreled action, stiffening the forend, and eliminating the need for conventional bedding methods though you can still glass bed the rifle to possibly further enhance the accuracy. The aluminum skeleton provides a rock solid foundation to secure your action, preventing it from shifting under recoil and improving your rifle's inherent accuracy! The non-flexing forend allows your barrel to free-float with no parts of the stock touching the barrel and will accommodate large factory varmint contour barrels. Your barrel harmonics remain the same from shot to shot even when the barrel heats up, further ensuring you get the best accuracy out of your rifle! Though it is a few ounces heavier than a factory stock, the additional weight reduces felt recoil and your rifle will balance better which reduces shooter fatigue. The quality construction provides a solid, confidence inspiring feel compared to the cheap hollow toy-like factory made injection molded stocks. This is undoubtedly the finest aluminum-bedded hunting rifle stock ever made for Savage rifles, and certainly the best value and upgrade for your rifle you can invest in.
A personal testament of how well this stock works: I had a Savage 110 in .300 Win Mag that I hated to shoot because it kicked like a mule. When sighting it in at the bench, 5 shots was the most I could take at a sitting before my shoulder hurt too much to continue. A long time ago I qualified as an expert marksman yet with this rifle my groups were pathetic, the mediocre design of the factory stock made shooting it a real pain giving me a horrible flinch, and with the way it freely flexed any attempt on my part to find a perfect load or otherwise accurize the rifle was an exercise in futility. I had a magnum rifle with long range potential, yet my effective range was limited because I could barely hit a plate at 100 yards! Frustrated, I was about to get rid of the rifle when I took some internet forum advice and swapped the factory stock out for this Bell & Carlson Medalist. The results were nothing short of astounding to me! The formerly painful to shoot .300 Win Mag now felt more like a .270 and my discomfort with shooting it went to nearly zero. Instead of giving up shooting it after a few rounds, I could shoot it all day! My flinch now gone, I actually looked forward to shooting my Savage and discovered that it could really perform! At 100 yards with cheap Remington ammunition my group sizes went from the size of a saucer plate to the size of a QUARTER! When I fed it Federal Gold Medal match ammunition I was regularly shooting groups smaller than a NICKEL, and some of my groups I could cover with a DIME! I used it for long distance shooting, ringing gongs at distances over 1000 yards with boring regularity and even took a few deer with it. It was with a heavy heart that I sold my rifle to help pay for some medical bills but I couldn't convince the buyer to pay the extra money for this stock, as he felt the factory stock would suit him just fine. His loss, your gain! As always, please contact me with any questions prior to placing your bid. Thanks for bidding and good luck!

On Sep-09-13 at 18:01:14 PDT, seller added the following information:The bedding block has not been modified and I never glass bedded the rifle action into the stock. If you would like pictures of the inside of the stock simply message me and I can send them to you. There is a 12 picture limit with the listing so I couldn't include every picture I wanted to.
Barrel profile fitment information:
The stock barrel channel is 1.08" diameter in front of the barrel nut. The foremost tip of the forearm is 8" in front of the nut and the barrel channel at the tip is .98" diameter. Depending on the diameter of your barrel, and how deep your action seats in the stock, some light sanding of the stock *may* be required to completely free float larger profile barrels. I provide the following information obtained from Shilen barrels to assist you in determining if any stock modification will be required for your barrel profile.
Savage Sporter contour barrels are 1.06" diameter at the barrel nut, 0.585" diameter at the muzzle, and 22" long. I calculate the barrel diameter to be 0.868" diameter at the stock forend. No modification of the stock will be necessary for this contour.
Savage Heavy Sporter contour barrels are 1.06" diameter at the barrel nut, 0.685" diameter at the muzzle, and 26" long. I calculate the barrel diameter to be 0.934" at the stock forend. No modification of the stock will be necessary for this contour.
Savage Varmint contour barrels are 1.06" at the barrel nut, 0.8" at the muzzle, and 26" long. I calculate the barrel diameter to be 0.972" at the stock forend. The barrel is smaller than the barrel channel but because the difference is so close some light sanding may be required to free float this barrel profile.
Savage Bull contour barrels are 1.06" at the barrel nut, 1" at the muzzle, and 26" long. I calculate the barrel diameter to be 1.04" at the stock forend. Some light sanding will probably be necessary to free float this barrel profile.
