Savage's Custom Accufit for the Model M110 Series

Savage released a significant new product enhancement this year with the Savage Accufit system for the companies Accustock on the 10 commercially available Model 110 bolt action rifles that form one of the flagship product lines. Essentially taking a page out of polymer handgun frames with adjustable grip swells, Savage is applying the concept to their Model 110s with 4 adjustable lengths of pull in 1/4″ increments, and adjustable cheek pieces that come in 1/8″ increments. These adjustable pieces work via clipping into the base stock. Customers will receive all the available adjustments when they purchase any one of the Model 110 rifles. The cheek risers lock-in via a hook arrangement that hooks into the stock from above. The length of pull increments work via a stack on system wherein they are tightened by two screws in the buttplate/recoil pad. It should be noted that the recoil pad stays the same throughout the adjustment process (the increments are really just spacers), while the comb risers are different items.
