I believe mine was cracked from abuse. The buttstock had also been carved on with some diy checkering and the forend right side hanging over the receiver had split off the main part of the forend. I tried to save the buttstock by sanding the checkering off but there was not enough wood left to make a good fit to the sides of the receiver. It seems to be a difficult stock to fit because there are three bearing surfaces.

I agree. The stock fits reverse angles on the sides then at the very rear of the stock.

I fit mine and was careful to make it as even as I was able. The left side cracked. (Again) it simply must have been too tight. I am pulling it off today for the repair and will relieve a bit more material. But its SO EASY to take too much and leave a unsightly gap.

Mine has seen maybe a hundred shots before it cracked. It went on as nice as could be. Seemed even and tightened down with barely any compression. Gave zero indicators Id have any problems.

Not all wood is equal. Sometimes you get a piece that's weak in places. It might look okay and the grain may be oriented correctly and the weakness just doesn't show.

The way you fitted it may have worked fine with another piece of wood, but not with that one.

Nice work, Lt. Dave. Those ofl Savage 24's are very hard to find anymore. They haven't been mad in I don't know how long, but were nice working guns. I gave my Savage 94C which I got as a birthday gift when I was 16 to my youngest son. It was a .410 and may not be shot again, but he will keep it for sure. Take care, John.

It's not what you do, but how you do what you do, that counts.
Just keep on keeping on!

Had the same problem with a TCR and a Winchester 94. Seems to me that uneven contact, stock to receiver, is the problem. Bedded the butt of all my two-piece stocks to the receivers. No problems since. A little of the bedding compound (what kind doesn't seem to matter) goes a long way, and be sure to used a good release agent. Just what's worked for me.

Question is it possible to mount a scope on one of these rifles, I did notice that Charlie on the show The Last Alaskan has his fathers savage 24 and he has a very nice peep sight mounted on it He did not say what the rifle caliber was but it may have been a 222 Remington as he was shooting Rabbits with it the bullets did not look like 30-30 I have it recorded so may run it and pause to see if I can see the caliber, He did say it was fine for Caribou but to small for moose.

I had a newer model 24-f in 30-30 over 12 ga that was drilled and tapped for scope rail.

The older 22 lr barrels have the grooves on the side of the barrel that will accept .22 receiver type rings. I'm trying to find a peep sight to fit the grooves.
