Just bought this gun and went to take the stickers off. I got the first 2 off no problem. Then, the last sticker peeled the camo off. Not sure why they need 3 stickers on the dang thing but there is.

Has anyone every had problems when dealing with Savage? Going to give them a call tomorrow about it.

The one time I had to use them for a 17HMR failure to fire they were great. Hopefully they take care of you!

Hopefully you get it fixed. Coming off that easy with a sticker makes me wonder how well it will hold up to banging around in the woods

No problem here, similar issue except my bolt knob had some camo missing sent it in and they turned it around ASAP, no questions asked.

Their stickers are obnoxious. As someone else mentioned above, wonder how durable they finish is going to be in the field.

Maybe thatís why some people leave stickers on and hunt with them as is . Buddyís dad hunted with a browning shotgun with that barrel sticker still on. Couldnít believe it as it screams new gun, or I have no clue what Iím doing.

Had a savage long range in 6.5 creedmoor. Shot great only problem was they didnt finish ream it so almost blew my face off trying some reloads. they finish reamed it and sent it back. I sold it after that and have not bought a savage since. They didnt seem to think the finish reaming was a serious miss on their part. I thought differently.

Savage customer service is generally very good. I am a little concerned about the overall quality of firearms since they are building about 4 times the number that they were when Ron Coburn was CEO.
Adios,
Gary

Just got off the phone. As soon as I told them what happened they immediately said they will ship out a new stock. Didn't hesitate to send one.

Good deal. I’m glad I saw this thread. I’ve got two Savage rifles I haven’t taken out of the box yet. I don’t want to mess them up removing the stupid stickers. Getting some googone just in case

you would think with how common of a problem this is since they would find a way to prevent the issue and not just have to keep sending out new stocks. I am glad they took care of you!

I wonder if the use of a hair dryer would make them come off easier ? Just a thought.
