Anyone in the Bay Area consider themselves as experts at working on Savage rifles? I need the barrel removed on my Savage 10FP so that I can send the barrel to AR15barrels.com to be threaded for a muzzle brake. Then when it gets back, I'd like it re-installed. Let me know your location and $$$.

Depending on the brake you choose, it MAY be important to mark the top of the barrel before removing it from the action so I have a reference where top-dead-center is.

This will also help the smith put it back into exactly the same place when he puts it back together.

Thanks for the heads up, I'll keep that mind when and if I can find a smith... Otherwise its back to the original plan of waiting on the next Disneyland trip...:)

I've got the action and barrel nut wrench. I can meet you at the San Leandro range tomorrow afternoon to remove your barrel, just remove the action from the stock and take out the bolt.

5 minutes, if that...

You don't have the heat the barrel to supposedly "break" the "lock"?
Actually, I don't have rifle yet, still in jail until the 28th... Thanks phish! I'll keep you mind to see if your available one day.

Okay, PM when you get it in. A drop of Kroil is all that's needed to help things.

I was able to get my barrel off using a breaker bar with the action wrench, no need for a "cheater bar" for the barrel nut wrench though.

heard savage barrels on that series are pretty easy to change.

Savage barrels are extremely easy to change. The torque spec on the barrel nut is supposed to be 35 ft-lbs but the gorillas in the factory are always over torquing them. Sometimes it takes a pretty sharp rap with a hammer on the nut wrench to break them loose but the second change is always easy.

I switch one gun between 22.250 and 243 and I have another 300WSM that is becoming a custom chambered 22.250.


If you put a match mark on the barrel and receiver do it on the bottom of the barreled action so it's not seen when the gun is assembled.

Will do... Thanks for the offer to help.
