Savage Rascal in an adult stock



Log in to see fewer ads
I posted this on another forum I frequent but figured i would put it up here too.

I have a Savage Rascal that i have always wanted an adult stock for. I searched the forums and many other people want one too. I found a spare Mark II sporter stock on the EE a couple months ago and stuck it up in the rafters until I had time to mess with it. Having nothing going today I got to work on it. The first issue was that the stock holes are in a different location so had to remove material and drill a hole behind the trigger guard. Then a new hole had to be drilled through the metal insert in the stock. Luckily when i bought that spare stock it came with the screws too which actually worked perfectly. I had quite a bit of file work in the stock to make the peep sight fit too. So here you go the Savage Rascal in a Mark II stock

I like it.

You're making me want to find a Rascal to go with my Mark II's.

Do you happen to know how much the barreled action weighs without the stock? If I could find a used Rascal for a reasonable price, I would maybe just make a skeleton stock for it using some spruce.

Rascal

Its only 2.7 lbs total so without the stocks Im guessing 2 lbs.

Update, I was able to get to the range with it yesterday, from the bench on a bag its shooting half inch groups at 25 yards. Which to me is pretty darn good due to the big aperture and crude front sight. I really think Im going to like this rifle now.

Now you just need the outlet'ed version of the stock from the FVT and put on a "real" rear-peep sight instead of the kinda meh/so-so thing it comes with.

Very nice job. That looks proportionally like one of the "trapper" SBR they made for the Canadian market. I've looked around for a take off MKII black stock like that for my wood stocked Youth model but never seem to find one.

savage

I actually had one of the Stevens 305F Trappers, this is much better. The peep really makes all the difference. The Stevens had such a short sight radius it was impossible to use past 30 yrds without a scope. As for other stocks the whole point of this project for me was to go with economy and function. I found a deal on a stock and used it. No point in turning a cheap gun into a money pit. Its not like its a 10/22...lol Just something fun to play with.
