Did you adjust the trigger? I have seen them trip the safeties when they are set to lite. Same problem was happening with my buddies when he would close the bolt to fast until he brought the trigger pull weight back to about 2 pounds.

I got so annoyed with that I just replaced the trigger. Never really likes the accu-trigger anyway. Basix trigger ~$70.

Increasing the weight of the trigger pull should fix the problem.

Either too little sear engagement or too light trigger spring pressure.

Yup. Set too light.

Lose it, and get a Rifle Basix or Sharp Shooter Supply trigger. You will be much happier.

yup, you need more pressure put on the spring bar. Too light and it will not reset.

I've got a couple of Savages, one of which gave me that gave me never ending problems witht the accu-trigger. It didn't matter what the trigger weight was set at. Instead of sending it back to Savage, I went with the SSS trigger. You one from can get them directly, but I used these guys. I've ordered a couple, with no problems and fast service.

It will probably take a little dremel work on the savage trigger housing, but install in relatively easy.
