    Question for Savage owners

    Hi, recently got a Weather Warrior off Pengy and the safety is very stiff to move from the 'half safe' position to the 'bolt lock' position. It is a top bolt release Accutrigger. I also have a Trophy Hunter with bottom bolt release and the safety is very easy to operate.. Any suggestions as to what I should do to free it up?
    Cheers, Logan

    Just going off my marlin there may be a bolt on the side that if is done up too tight makes the safety hard to move. If not then some brake cleaner then some power lube or the likes?

    Thanks Toby but it doesn't seem to be lack of lubrication that's the problem.. Feels like there's something rubbing that shouldn't be because it's really hard to move

    Don't worry Tim, it was just annoying me because it wasn't as easy to move as my .223 but she's all fixed now
    One part needed bending to relieve some pressure on the safety

    So that is what the inside of a trigger looks like.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
