Default Savage MKII FV-SR Build Thread

After posing the question here, at Snipershide, Gunnit and elsewhere, I think I finally have all my parts in transit for my latest build.

Rifle: Savage MK II FV-SR 4 days left on wait.
Stock: Boyd's Tacticool In hand.
Optic: Weaver Grand Slam Tactical 3-10x40mm Mil/Mil Ordered, delivery 11/27.
Rings: Burris 1" XT Low Ordered, delivery 11/27.
Caps: Butler Creek #13 & #26 Ordered, delivery 11/27.
Bipod: Snipershide Groupbuy - Check it out. Ordered, delivery 11/26.
Bottom Metal: DIP Ordered, delivery 11/26.
Muzzle Device: YHM

Left on the list: Assortment of ammo, Pillar/Glass bedding, possibly a cheek riser, 20/25MOA base. I am also going to find a random muzzle device in the Marketplace, I HATE how the thread protector looks on this. Dont need anything special, its standard AR15 threading, I know it will have little/no effect, I just cant stand the thread protector. I thought I could live with it from the pictures, but after seeing it in person, nah-uh.

I will be posting pictures as this gets put together, along with any work done to it (stock fitting / if I decide to try pillar/glass bedding it myself).

EDIT: Added YHM Muzzle Device

EDIT: First Pic

Very nice. I will be getting the FV-SR instead of the "TR" to save some green but would like to get that stock later on. The price isn't bad at all.

Yeah I was on the fence about getting the TR until I read the article with the guy doing chrono's of both... There was no velocity difference between the two rifles, even with suppressors on or off. Rather have 16" than the 22" or whatever, saves on weight and easier to lug around.

Do you have to order the floor plate/trigger guard for the stock? I don't know if that's mandatory with the stock or just if it doesn't fit on right.

The barrel will be much shorter, TR has a 22" and the FV SR is 16.5". I also dont have the two side mounted rails.

So it will look more like this:


The DIP bottom metal I have listed is the floorplate and trigger guard.

The stock bottom metal will not fit:


Even if the stock stuff fit, I would still get the DIP.

Update: Got it Monday after the dreaded wait. Immediately dropped it into the Boyds stock with the DIP metal. The standard stock is so craptastic, it felt cheaper than some stocks on old Airsoft guns I had. The bolt is pretty rought to manipulate, think it might be dragging on part of the stock when closing down. Going to take a closer look tomorrow or Thursday before I put the scope on. Everything should be installed and ready to go by Friday. Hoping to range test this weekend if the weather isn't nuts (weather.com says "potential for flooding rains" Sunday...).

Ouuu, looks good! That stock still makes the gun lighter than the the "TR" model?

I would have to weigh it, but I can say this is a very light gun. The stock looks really heart, and it feels solid, but it is very light. I have been told pillar bedding is a good idea to get he most out of this setup because there is a lot of stock compression.

Here is the link. Good read.

Here is the quote:
Quote:
I also checked for velocities from both rifles, with and without the can attached, and the velocities recorded were within just a few feet-per-second, with either rifle. The longer barrel had no velocity advantage, and I also noted no change in velocities with or without the can. All velocities, in either mode, were within the normal variation of the ammunition.
The FV-SR comes with a base (though if you are going to replace it with a 20 or 25MOA base it doesnt matter) and a better (imo) bolt handle.

And I should note I got that stock NIB from a private seller (so it isn't that expensive to have this build), and it dropped right and and the barrel is totally floated. Though as I mentioned there is some stock compression, so pillar/glass bedding is on the horizon.

Uh-oh...

Umm, I remember reading a thread that the gun falls apart at about 50 rounds and nearly all scopes can't be mounted on it so everyone should DEFINITELY stop buying them. Buy a Marlin instead

Got a package today...










500 rounds of Wolf Match gets here tomorrow, and Saturday/Sunday we are suppose to have flooding rains... I don't know if I will go, or if I can wait until Thursday to shoot it... But this rifle is 99.9% done. Just waiting on that YHM brake, but it wont stop me from shooting this beautiful thing.

My family is looking way too drab...

Oh, I forgot to ask as I've never shot a rifle with a stock similar to that; is that ideal only for prone/bench shooting? Is it comfortable to mount standing, crouched, or sitting?

I had that stock for the 10/22, works great in all of the above. You'll likely want to mount the scope as far forward as you can if you're planning on shooting prone or seated with it.

I am not the best to comment on it, as it is my first real scope, and I have yet to get it to the range. But I can say looking around it is very clear, the eye relief is solid, and the turrets are really nice and sturdy with positive clicks. I am happy with it. Lowlight did a video review on MidwayUSA that can probably do it more justice.

Hey DEFCON that scope rail is actually factory installed on the FV-SR not sure if you can order it from the factory.

I have not taken my fv out for quite awhile, ( I started an old thread about accuracy problems I had with it) but one addition I made that really pumps up the fun factor are the 10 round magazines. I had only one 5 rounder that came with it, it broke after about 3-400 rounds (apparently a common problem) but the stainless 10 rounders seem much mo betta.

Where can I get that stock you have for 75 ???

The base on the gun is stock, but I believe it is an EGW. I would recommend the DIP 25 or 20MOA rail, which is what I plan on upgrading to in the near future, in which case I will sell you the stock rail for next to nothing.

I found my stock on Rimfirecentral for 75 shipped, got amazingly lucky with that, it was NIB never mounted.
