Not as sexy as previous bolt actions but ready for range and then coyotes, hogs and deer.

Thanks gents! I was torn between a blued traditional with Boyds thumbhole or the route I went. Cerakoted Magpul FDE and OD green. NOS stock factory savage dipped stock and accushot scope NOS as well. Went kinda budget build but functional as well. Basic trigger kit as well has made it a 3lb smoother pulling trigger.

just ordered my 18 inch barrel ready to build axis, wondering who might have a go no go gauge, or a way to set headspace without one?

You can grab a Go gauge from PT&G for around $35 I think.  Otherwise, someone here might be able to "loan" one out but obviously I can't commit anyone.

Hi Mark, I tried ordering those PT&G gauges a couple of months ago and was denied, they said they were proprietary.

I received an email from them months ago asking if the cartridge was public and I told them yes. I guess I will have to contact them again.

I've seen a number of posts about PT&G quality control problems, as well as poor customer service in some of the wildcat/custom forums on Facebook.  Even Harrison from ARP has commented.  Do we want to risk bad juju on WLV reamers from them?

has anyone had issues with the muzzle or shank threading on the mdws savage prefit barrels, the one i just assembled the aac 51t muzzle brake will not thread on, think the thread depth may be off, ordered a 5/8 24 die to try and clean them up. just a question but ive got 6 guns with aac muzzle devices on the never had this sort of problem. any advise would be appreciated.

Last year I ordered a set of gauges from them, (actually wikster & I both) and they took a very long time with little to no communication. We did eventually receive them,it was just a was painfully long wait! With that said, I have a set I’m not using immediately that I’ll share.

My Savage 277 Wolverine is done and ready to go to the range for some serious barrel break-in time. Don't let the pictures fool you- it's 55 degrees today, but it will be 30 again in a couple days.
Savage Axis action with $1 trigger upgrade (now 3 1/2 lbs), Boyds thumbhole stock with UTG Bipod. McGowan 24" 1:10 5R Magnum profile barrel.Nikon 4-12 scope with one-piece mount. Kind of heavy at 10 lbs but I'm not going to be carrying this around alot, more a woodchuck and coyote gun when its not at the range...I had the Boyds stock already, too... IMG_2703.jpg

I had the same issues with them. They were taking way too long and would not respond to communications. I'm waiting on the rentals from JB so I can get it finished out.
