Ordering Parts from Savage
I tried to order a stripped bolt body for for an Axis rifle from Savage and I was told they couldn’t sell me it as it was a restricted part. I asked why and she said it was restricted because it is a serial number on it. I thought she was confused and thought I was wanting a receiver. I told her I didn’t want a receiver just the bolt body. She wasn’t confused. She said the bolt body is a restricted part as well as the bolt head, Firing pin, and barrel. Needless to say, I was very surprised I told her that I don’t believe these are restricted parts as I’m able to buy them from any other manufacturer. She was very adamant that I was wrong. She said the only way I could get the part I need is to send my rifle to them and they will install it. I told her I would not do that as it would cost more than I could buy a new rifle for. I looked at the parts She mentioned as restricted and I couldn’t see any serial numbers on them. Was this lady just off her rocker? I would believe this was a salvage policy, but she was adamant. It was the law. Any thoughts or experience with Savage?
