A close up picture of the AccuStock bedding block. The stock is very rigid and doesn't flex with a bipod installed. It completely free floats the barrel with no contact.

The Accu wedge sitting in place on the barrel nut against the recoil lug. When tighten down with the screw it holds & locks the recoil lug in place like a vice which is far superior to glass bedding. It holds the action down in the stock even without the use of the action screws.

Picture of the steel bottom metal of the 10FCP AccuStock model. As you can see the the bolt release is now located in front of the trigger guard. The other receiver screw is located under the bolt release in front of the trigger guard.

Picture of the trigger guard of the 10FCP AS on top and the 10FCP HS on the bottom. It shows that the AS guard is a little larger and wider.

The box mag bottom metal. The AS model on the top and the HS on the bottom. They are the same size but little different and trigger guards above are not interchangeable.

http://i267.photobucket.com/albums/ii299/MAX100/SAV10AS-4.jpg

The pictures shows the difference in the recoil lugs and the barrel nuts. The recoil lug of the AS model on top and HS model on bottom. The AS recoil lug is shorter, square, non tapered and not as wide. This is the reason why the barrel action from the older HS model will not fit in the AccuStock. The AccuStock will only fit the barrel action with Accu style recoil lug. The barrel nut on the AS model is smooth with no slots. This means the Savage barrel nut wrenches won't work on the new barrel nut.

The picture shows that the inletting for the trigger guard is wider on the AccuStock. The AS barreled action will fit the Savage HS stock with some minor widening of the trigger guard cut out.

Picture of the nice muzzle brake on the New 10FCP. The barrel is threaded and the brake is secured by a crush washer.

The recoil pad is new out by Savage they call it the P.A.D. stands for: Personal AntiRecoil Device. It is very soft & mushy. It's the softest recoil on the market. It makes me wonder how durable it will be over time. It suppose to reduce recoil by 45% over OEM solid & vented pads. I believe it is very possible.

The new Savage 10FCP offers a lot for the money. The AccuStock is a standard style stock but the best factory stock available and will allow the best accuracy of any factory stock on the market in my opinion. I would like to see a tactical style stock built around the Accu bedding Block using the same plastic or fiberglass. We all know how costly it is to have a barrel threaded for a muzzle brake and what barrel fluting cost. This rifle will surely be very popular and a big seller. It shows that Savage is still one step ahead of the competition in Value, Design, Innovation and Quality.
