301T FYI

Post by guesswho »

After emailing Savage customer service about the trigger pull on my Stevens 301T they advised that the factory specs are 5-8 pounds. I informed them mine was well over 10 and probably closer to 12. I told them that it was dangerous, especially for kids. They had me send it in for evaluation. They confirmed it was out of spec. I told them I'd love for it to be in the 4-5 pound range. I got it back today and it is 100% better. Still no creep and has a nice crisp break at less then 6 pounds. And I purposely shipped it back without a choke and they sent it back with a new factory choke. I just didn't want my Indian Creek to get lost.

All it cost was my outgoing freight which was about $14. Just thought I'd share in case someone else has a similar situation.

Good to hear of a company that does right by their customers. Were you really sweet to them, Ronnie?

I've been having an issue with my Canon camera & sent it off to a repair shop I have used in the past. I got
it back Thurs. & it still wasn't right. A tech called me late yesterday afternoon & we worked on it for almost
an hour but nada. They emailed me a prepaid UPS shipping label & I sent it back. Hopefully they'll get it
right this time.

What can I say, I'm a charmer with a bubbling personality.

Good deal, Ronnie! I love stories with happy endings!
May I assume you're not here to inquire about the alcohol or the tobacco?

Good deal. They are great little guns when they are right. Takes a little shooting to see what each one likes.
