I bought this muzzle lapping kit from Mcarbo to address the issue on my Romanian trainer, which has had a hard life. Looks much nicer now. I then "blued" the muzzle with a black Sharpie.

I REALLY wish you would do a thread on the Savage Mark I on RFC (anything and everything you've learned about it). I've been looking at the Mark I's (I have 3 Mark II's) and would like a comprehensive review from an actual user. You do excellent reviews.
Expect it tmw night, over in the Savage subforum. I need to go shoot it with Wolf. I am trying to decide if I will keep it or trade it in on a 457 ProVarmint. Depends on how the Mk I shoots with the Wolf.

Just put this scope on it today. Probably the perfect inexpensive scope for this gun. Shooting it with Wolf Match Extra tmw.

OK, fixed.

Shot the Rock today with Wolf Match Extra, and CCI MM 36gr HP. All are 5-shot groups at 25 yards, front and rear bags.

Note the Savage's results above, shot with Wolf. The Savage, in its black plastic stock, is within a hair of being as good as my CZ 457 Trainer. The Rock, not so much; but I think it still acquits itself well. As you can see, I was still dialing in the scope for the first two groups of Wolf.

Discounting two flyers for the Savage, it got a 5-shot group average of .15". The Rock got a 4-shot (of 5) average of .21", and did pretty well with the Mini Mag too. (The circled shot under Wolf group 5 is a sighter for the MM. Had to crank that elevation down a bunch for the HV rounds.....)

See post #1. The Rock shot a lot better with the SK Pistol Match Special.

I think this gun is a very viable alternative to a CZ 457 Scout. Obviously less accurate but still quite capable, for about $220 OTD with the nice little scope in post #18. The M14Y was the best of my dozen or so mid-pack 22s, before I started trading them in.

Putting sling studs on it in a few minutes. You can get a pack of three front and rear studs on Amazon for $10.
