Re: Savage 99 Feeding problem
Don't over oil it. A little goes a long way.
If you look closely at the recoil pad(non factory), there may be slits to allow access to the two wood screws. Or it could have been glued, not good.
Do you have any idea what Model 99 you have? There were many made from 1920 on in 300 Savage. Can you post a picture? If not describe the stock shape for the fore end and butt stock and where the safety is located. Also what is the serial number? X out the last couple of digits.
