What does the bore of a 62 year old Savage 110 look like? (title corrected)

What does the bore of a 62 year old Savage 110 look like? Halfmilesniper takes a looks down the bore of his Dad’s 62 year old Savage 110L. This rifle is out of commission due to a broken stock so no deep cleaning is done, we are just trying to see if the factory did a better job boring and rifling way back when.

Title and descripton edited to reflect proper age of the gun based off information on finding the date code (thank you SilverFox1657)

    I’m left handed also, I found a 110 CL at a pawn shop and picked it up pretty cheap early last year, I figure mine was made in the late 60’s or early 70’s, mine has the drop box magazine with the button on the side. Very nice rifle you have there.

    Check out Boyd’s. They have a variety of woods

    That’s a nice survivor and I can help date it (Savage likely won’t).

    For starters, the Savage 110 was introduced in 1958, right hand only, and available in 30-06 or 270. The left hand model, 110L, was introduced in 1959. To confirm actual year of manufacture, look for the oval barrel stamp containing 2 digits and a letter, the letter will denote the year it was produced. "K" is 1959 and "M" (L was not used) would be 1960.

    I have a 110 that predates yours, was manufactured in 1957, barrel stamp "I", and 4-digit serial number 10XX. There’s some really good information on the pre-66 110s on Savage Shooter’s Forum. πŸ™‚

    That bore does not look bad all to me considering what it could look like. I’m trying to clean out a Rem 700 that I bought used and it has a ton of black carbon streaks from one end to the other. The copper came out pretty easy, but the black streaks are more than stubborn!

    Who cares about tool marks savages are very accurate…could be the copper protected it from rusting…cant find a stock ..make one from a dry piece of walnut…or buy a man made one…steel that old is much better then the newer…stay safe…

    Why don’t you glue the crack with some of the most modern wood glue, then bed the total action, then see how it shoots? It certainly looks pretty with the stock it has now and it has memories.

    Just brought home a 110CL series J marked ’06 Savage. Sporting a Weaver V9-II steel tube wide angle scope. What I could find on dating this example is that Savage made these from ’64 to ’84. The Weaver scope was made from ’78 to ’84. I knew it wasn’t a spring chicken when I found it. Had to have it though, those southpaw bolt actions just don’t show up as often as I would like, these days.
    Hope that helps.

    First thing I noticed was it was a left handed bolt action rifle. My sister is left handed, but shoots a right handed bolt action. Told her there are left handed bolt actions out there, but she has not picked one up yet. On the same note, my wife is right handed, but left eye dominant. I am trying to figure out how to teach her how to shoot. I wonder what the standard practice is for this type of situation? Do you train them to shoot left or right handed? Or do you try to train them to shoot with both left and right hand, as well as left and right eye?
