Rifle Basix makes an adjustable sear for the Pre-Accutrigger Savage rimfires. So I'd like to go with one of those if I went with a Savage M93.

I have a Boyds stock and the Rifle Basix sear on my Savage M93 in 17HMR. Boyds has a lot of selections to choose from. I have used their stocks on three different rifles. They are pretty good stocks.

My Savage FVSR got this trigger. About 1 lb pull weight.

I hated the Boyds stock I bought. Very soft wood in the one I had. I like solid walnut though! Rheinland Arms stock (out of business I think). With the silencer on and some CCI standard velocity ammo it is mostly hammer fall and click and pfft. Very, very accurate too!

Dye, I'm going to be honest, getting the accuracy from the 22WMR I think will be harder than the 17HMR! My Savage 17HMR still has the factory receiver and barrel and have never been taken apart. Shooting a 17 HMR is a blast! The ammo is a little higher than 22WMR ammo, but still very reasonable in price. Biggest downside with the 17HMR is wind. It's very sensitive to cross wind of any kind. I have seen my bullets move as much as 8 to 10 inches at a 100 yards.

This is my Savage Model 93R17 that I customized with a Boyds stock, Rifle Basix trigger sear, and a BSA Sweet 17 in 6-18x40 scope.

ETA: For some reason, the pictures would load, but check mine out here, Post #37 has the pictures of it.

That's a nice looking rifle. Those boys stocks are not terribly expensive. You like them I take it?

Thank you Dye!

I do like them. They have gone up in price since I bought the ones I have. I think they are still decently priced, but they got pretty popular, so pricing went up.

I only did a quick look through them, but they all seemed under $200 pretty much. For a really nicely made rifle stock, that wouldn't hurt my feelings to pay. I've paid more for worse furniture in my house, so I will probably have less buyers remorse even if it's an okay stock for the price.

Just bare in mind, they are wood and may take a little fitting. Both of mine did. I have talked to them directly as well. They recommend bedding for best accuracy. But both of mine shoot better than I do most of the time.
