Installs are free at CDiPrecision, so click Install option and send your rifle in for install. Easy and fast. 3 week turnaround or faster. US Addresses only. Mags Must be purchased Separately.
Savage Model 110 Series Long Action for 308 class magazines
Posted by Scott Snyder on 26th Mar 2014
As far as I know CDI Precision is the only company making a Savage long action bottom metal for use with the short action magazines which basically leaves them as the only game in town. But with the quality of design and fabrication of this setup who needs to go elsewhere for bottom metal and mags. I am a gunsmith so I am used to installing bottom metals in all makes and models of rifles and the one seemed no harder or easier than any others. Pretty routine if you know what you are doing and CDI gives a good CAD side view drawing with all the critical dimensions. I do think a CAD full scale top view drawing with dimensions should also be provided so as to be used as a template. This would also make referencing the needed radiuses instead of having to measure them with a radius gauge. All in all this is an exceptional product and I plan on using these bottom metals often in the future. Shipping was quick and reasonable and I was kept well informed as to the progress of the order. Nicely done guys.
