Default savage 64f aftermarket

hello all

1st post

i recently purchased a savage 64f on sale. I've been looking for aftermarket parts for this rifle and from what i can see, there is very little.

I managed to find a lighter trigger on ebay(not sure if i would trust it, but we'll see when it comes in) but i am having trouble finding a different stock. Any help would be appreciated.

If you are a California resident I suggest that you educate yourself on the state's gun laws. There are some very strict laws in CA about what you can and can't do to and with a rifle, even a .22 rimfire.

Welcome to a great website and lots of folks here willing to help and answer questions.

There is no aftermarket for the Savage 64. Sorry. I have one, and it is a fine rifle, but if you want a .22 that you can customize, you should buy a Ruger 10/22.

If you want to make a fairly decent accurate rifle buy a Ruger 10/22 and spendtons of money on it. If you want to buy a fairly decent accurate rifle buy a Savage 64f, scope it and you have one. If you want a very accurate rifle buy a CZ

I went down to big 5 and picked it up today. didnt get a chance to go to the range due to range and the lack of 22lr >:/

Just handeling this gun, i am already in love with it.

I am planning on putting a cheaper red dot on it(never been a fan of the tasco scopes that it comes with) and i was wondering if you would recommend getting one that has a dovetail mount, or to get one set up for picadily(sp?) and get an adapter

I believe Picatinny is the word you are searching for. Some .22 scope mounts have a tendency to walk or slide along the dovetail grove. Many have had good luck with a one piece mount like this: http://www.amazon.com/UTG-Profile-Ai...2lr+scope+base

There are also red dot scopes already made to mount to a rimfire like this: http://www.amazon.com/Tasco-22-Rimfi...2lr+scope+base

You can order a regular wood stock from Savage, I don't know of any other aftermarket stocks. RimfireCentral.com is another great resource.

thanks for the tip on rimfirecentral. the word i was looking for was in fact picatinny. I was actually looking at those EXACT items earlier today. my question is whether i should go with the dovetail or to get the adapter and run picatinny

If this red dot will only be used on the Savage then it may be less expensive to just buy one made for the dovetail. Using the one piece mount would give you more choices in which scope to use as the weaver base is more common.

Default aftermarket stock

At one point Boyds had them for the 64. I love mine. Heavy trigger but it gets lighter with use.

I have a tasco red dot on my ruger 10/22, for $40 you cant beat it. It fits perfectly on the ruger scope mount. Great for plinking and target shooting. Only thing is the dot is kinda blurry, its not sharp like expensive red dots. I have videos of me shooting with the scope and a review on it on my youtube channel, link in my signature below.

Wife has a Savage 64. Accurate and fun to shoot little rifle but there is no aftermarket support for them. A new stock would be nice.

I heard that the cheaper red dots are a little fuzzy. I also did some digging around on rimfirecentral and found that boyds makes stocks for the 64 but dosen't have them on their site anymore. here's a picture that i was able to find of a 64 with a aftermarket stock.

They should have kept making their "tacticool" stocks for all rimfires instead of making them limited editions.... poor choice on their side I say.

I know I'd snag one for my 795 and possibly for my 925

I don't even need a tacticool stock for my 64FXP, just a good solid wood stock to replace the cheap plastic factory stock.

Boyd, are you listening...

Default Boyd's Stock request

All you folks with a Savage 64 might want to consider requesting that Boyd's make the stock. Go to their website and in their search window enter "Savage 64". It will come up with no stocks but it also comes up with a stock request form. If enough people request a stock for that rifle there's a possibility that Boyd's will make one.

That's how the Rimfire Varmint Thumbhole stock for the Marlin 60 came into being. Folks on rimfirecentral.com reqested it and when Boyd's saw that there was a profit in doing it, they did it.

It would be best to take a poll or at least somehow gather the info from owner's on which stock they would like so that Boyd's could see a way forward to make the stock. If 10 different style of stocks were requested I doubt it would be successful. Might also want to poll the 64 owners on rimfirecentral.com for input as well.

Couldn't hurt to try.

We ended up taking the 64 out to the range out in lindin last weekend. about every third shot would either fail to chamber or fail to eject. it started to act right as we got to the end of the day, right around 80 rounds later. we figured it was just the cheap ammo we had.

the next day we pulled it apart just to be sure that the ejector wasn't bent since it wasn't ejecting properly. The gun looked as if it we had put 500 rounds through it! so we ran some patches down the barrel, cleaned the bolt, firing pin, ejector and the receiver itself.

We then took it out this past sunday. after putting ~200-300 rounds through it, we had 1 failed to chamber and 1 failed to fire, both of which had imperfections on the brass.

I love this rifle. dime sized groups at 25 yards with the cheap scope that came with it.

also, when we had it apart we also had his 1891 Spanish mauser apart, it looks like with some small modifications, the stock will work for the 64
