Looks like an answer to a problem that don't exist or another gimmick to me.I'm also AMAZED they didn't bother to edit or correct writing mistakes.

Their rifles shoot great already, not sure if this is really needed.
I wish they would spend a few R&D dollars on making a stock that doesn't feel so cheap.

??? Savages synthetic stocks, also referred to as "tupperware", were the biggest compliant owners ,including myself had. I'd hardly call that "a problem that doesnt exist". If youve ever owned one, you would see the great improvment a stiffer stock would make over the previous, flimsy one. I'd say savage should be comended for listening to its customers.

With an improved stock, accutrigger(definatley not a gimmick either) and the typical great accuracy,and low price, I'd say Savage is hard to beat!

What I'm talking about is their supposed new exciting breakthrough on bedding design that makes everything else obsolete if you believe the hype on the website. Aluminum bedding blocks are nothing new,it's just a different style. I honestly don't see where it's any better than an conventional full length bedding block.

Yeah I dont think they needed any special bedding system , The rifles were already as accurate as a factory rifle could be expected to be, but the aluminum skeleton, in a lightweight injection molded stock, was a good idea.

Personally I think they should have just gone back to the staggerd feed and put houge or B&C stocks on em.

stalkingbear; I do believe that the difference between this accustock and traditional bedding is that the accustock applies pressure for the up and down forward and back. Traditional bedding only applies pressure for up and down. Here is the quote from their website.

"Three-Dimensional Bedding Pressure – Pillar-bedded and v-block stocks, as good as they are, only apply bedding pressure on one axis, up and down. The AccuStock uses a wedge bolt to push the recoil lug back into the aluminum spine to prevent any movement forward and aft, while the bedding cradle literally squeezes the action from the sides when the action screws are tightened.

“The stock literally squeezes the action from all directions,” Coburn said. “It becomes part of the action, making the whole rifle much stiffer and much more consistent.”"

I can't say that it is any better since I have not shot one, but it is an intrigueing concept.

The accustock concept does make some sense to me, onlytime will tell if it improves accuracy.Even if it is not any better than standard full length bedding it looks like an improvement over the existing stock and that in itself is a plus. The design will clearly stiffen the forend and that was my main grip with the old stocks.

savages may not be pretty but how many other $250 dollar gun shoot sub MOA with just about any kind of ammo you shoot out of it. I know there are other great guns out there but for a gun to go beat around the country with chasing coyotes what more could you want.
