How to Change a Savage Model 110 Stock

Save

The stock of a Savage 110 rifle is easily removed and replaced. The stock may need to be replaced if it has sustained serious damage, or if changing between a wood stock and a polymer stock. Replacement stocks are available in a wide range of custom woods, polymers and designs. Whether you are replacing your stock with a standard factory model or with a stock made of a specialty wood with custom engraving, it can be replaced in a matter of minutes.

Things You'll Need

  • Hex-head Allen wrench
  • Towel
  • Replacement stock
  • Lay a towel or a cloth on your work area to prevent scratching your Savage 110.

  • Check to make sure that your rifle is not loaded. Remember gun safety rules, and even though your rifle is not loaded, do not let the barrel point towards yourself or others.

  • Lay the rifle on the towel. Turn the rifle so that the bottom is facing up, and the sights (if present) are laying on the towel.

  • Remove the hex screw on the forearm of the rifle. It would normally be positioned on the bottom of the rifle, but because the rifle is upside-down, it will be facing up. Use the appropriate size Allen wrench, as different year models of the Savage 110 may have different screw sizes and tolerances. As the hex screws are removed, pay very close attention to which hole they came out of. The hex screws are not interchangeable, and must be replaced in the same location.

  • Remove the hex screw from the front (towards the barrel) of the trigger guard. Leave the hex screw at the rear of the trigger guard in place.

  • Remove the rifle stock. It will pull off easily in one piece, with the trigger guard attached.

  • Remove the hex screw at the rear of the trigger guard, and remove the trigger guard. Some replacement stocks come with a new trigger guard, but if yours does not, then you will be re-installing yours on the new stock.

  • Place either your existing or new trigger guard in place on the new stock. Using either the hex screw you had removed from the rear of the trigger guard--or the new one supplied with a new trigger guard--screw the rear hex screw of the trigger guard into place until the screw is seated snugly. Do not over-tighten any of the hex screws.

  • Place the replacement stock in position on the metal body of the rifle.

  • Using either the hex screw you had removed from the front of the trigger guard, or the new one supplied with a new trigger guard, screw the front hex screw of the trigger guard into place until the screw is seated snugly. This screw pulls the new stock and the metal body of the rifle together.

  • Take the hex screw that was removed from the forearm of the rifle. Position it in place, and screw it in until it is snug. Your new Savage 110 stock in now attached.
