I don't know about the bedding, but I agree with your other assessments (for what that's worth).

It's great to have choices.

I can't speak to the RAR trigger but I have a Savage FV-SR and the accu-trigger will not adjust as low as Savage advertises. I do have a RPR and it's trigger is superior to the Savage's by quite a bit.

I've not tried to adjust the FV-SR trigger, it "feels" really good as is.

I'm going to try and get to a few more semi-local stores and handle as many rifles as I can, see how the RAR triggers compare.

I do own and shoot both RART and MK1FVT, in somewhat modified condition, some bedding, Provarmint stocks, and trigger work I did at home.
I thought the RAR trigger better in every aspect over the MK1FVT. With just some cleaning and polishing and a pen spring in the RAR trigger it breaks clean, crisp at 1.5 pounds. The Savage needed shimming to lessen the creep, springs for trigger pull and removal of the Accu-trigger blade to use a shoe to achieve a similar trigger feel. Yes I did thorough testing for safe operations on both. Both passed without trouble.

Never understood the complaints over the RAR trigger. KM

Do you have a link to accomplish this?

Thanks.

My RAR's are tight so shims were not used but polishing and softening part edges did help. KM

The upper video is what I did. Not that the trigger was bad, I like it lighter since I'm on a bench shooting ground squirrels.

I’ve done the “pen spring” trick but I find the stock at the wrist too flexible. Anybody have recommendations for a replacement stock?

Boyd's has several models; AT-ONE, Varment, Hunter. MDT has their LSS-22 chassis model. I have my RAR installed in the MDT chassis and love it.
