I have owned an old Savage rifle in 22LR and and old Savage 12 gauge both of which that I wound up selling and still own a Savage Axis XP in 308 and a Savage Model 93 in 22WMR (both bought new).
I sent the Model 93 into Savage Arms for repairs back in late June. It was not feeding reliably, in fact it was feeding terribly when doing so at all, and the mags were loose as all hell when in the mag well. They finally got it sent back to me a few days ago and it looked as if they fixed the problem with the mags having been loose. I am guessing that may alao have fixed the feeding problem but I refuse to test fire it until they address some issues new to the rifle since I sent it to them.
Yes, I am saying it appears they fucked up my gun while they were supposed to be repairing it. Here is a list of things I found wrong with it when I got it back from them and mind you those prpblems were nonexistant when I sent it to Savage Arms:

|June 2th - no ding on left side of barrel between receiver and stampings and|
there was also no scratch or marring in the wood under rear scope mount.
|When I got it back from Savage there was|
a ding on barrel between stampings and receiver.
|Again, when I got it back from Savage, there was also a scratch and marring in|
the wood under the rear scope mount that were not there when sent to Savage.
|Not scraped when I shipped it to Savage but scraped when I got it back.|
|Receiver not scratched behind ejection port when sent to Savage.|
|Receiver scratched when I got it back from Savage,|
7) The forward movement of the safety is no longer smooth as it was before back in June but now seems to be grating on something internally and it is hard to push forward. The rearward movement is still smooth. Obviously there are no pics for this.
