    Savage Model 5

    I have a Savage m 5 .22lr tube mag . Does anyone know much about these rifles . Seems to me that the only bedding point is that square block just forward of the receiver , everything else just sorta floats about . Now I had a notion that I might try to add a bit on ( I love my welder ) at the rear of the receiver like a tang , which I would then bed into the stock and fit a screw thru from the rear trigger guard screw hole up into the new tang . The sear needs rebuilt (did I tell you , I love my welder ) and I need to cut the bolt handle off at the base , turn it round 180 and weld ( Oh Emelda ) it on at right angles to what it was so I can put a scope on it , Yeah , then I'll have a real tack driver . Some idiot ( you may be watching ...... dickhead ! ) got the barrel threaded for a silencer .... with a tube mag , AND put a (wrong ) scope block on it when the bolt handle comes up vertical and even if I fix that its still way to far forward for good eye relief ..... which is probly why there's 2 inches missing off the stock ( Yeah , it was a great buy )Name:  DSC02029.JPG

    All the savages of that vintage just have that one mounting point doesn't seem to affect the accuracy, it's usually the trigger that lets them down going by the model 3's I've had.
    Wouldn't a long eye relief scope work on the existing mount without cutting the bolt?
    Are you sure the stock was cut, Savage did a few kids length rifles.

    Could have been setup with a red dot for a kid or something. Some of the real slim suppressors will still work on tube feed rifle's

    I guess its possible that its a kid length stock but this thing feels real barrel heavy, Actually that's something I have noticed after buying a few old .22's .... a lot of them have had the stock trimmed and some none to well .
