    My go to deer rifle is a Savage 110 in .243 from the early '80's. I have never done anything to it, and it is a great (sub-MOA) shooter. I would pay $250 for another in a heartbeat. They are great quality guns, and typically very accurate.

    the 111s were refined as hunting rifles. plastic stocks, shorter barrels etc. Thats what I built the Savage/CBI on and where the ,308 barrel i have came from. It came off a new savage 11.

    They are for all intents and purposes just a purpose built savage 110.

    Savage has been making the old 110 set up for a LONG time. At one time, they were all long actions, actually EXTRA long actions if you compare them to a 70, or a 700 or a 98. In fact, once upon a time, if you didnt want to spend the extra money for off set rings, you had to actually be careful what scopes you tried to mount on 'em because the scope length of MANY scopes werent long enough to mound on a 110! I have owned quite a few over the years and even owned one, in the OLD VEEERY LONG 110, factory chambered in ............... 222 Remington!! The magazine was blocked for a full HALF of its length to hold the .222 shells! Ive also owned em in 270, and a BUNCH of em in '06. EVERY ONE shot exceptionally well, even one I bought that had been traded in after being used by an Amish man for deer hunting for MANY years - it was terribly dirty, and had been used VERY hard for VERY long. They arent necessarily GRACEFUL, and the "beech hardwood" stocks on most of the early ones were very clubby, kinda like holding onto a 2x4- the lines of the current stocks, and especially the plastic stocks are MUCH better, and are a very comfortable replacement to put on those fat, older ones. Enjoy it when you get it; it should serve ya well and shoot DAMNED well!

    If you plan on changing stocks make sure the center to center of the action screws are the same as yours. I did 7 left hand Barrelled 110-111's for a custome and 2 0f them were different. I don't know what the stocks were off of (he bought them) but just glassed the old holes and drilled new ones, best to check it first to avoid such a hassel. Had to make new metal screw seats for front screw and glaassbed. Good Luck
