I have my first rifle as the Savage 64 F. And I’ve rather enjoyed shooting this rifle. Today, while re-assembling it, the rear Alan screw, that fastens the stock to the rifle, stripped the receiver hole of its threads. it still fastens to the trigger and magazine well. But its no longer connected to the receiver.
To be honest, I’m not sure what to make of this. My dads a wood worker, so I know a thing or two about screws and threads (though I’m not an expert by any means). But something like this is completely un-precidented in my life.
I still have the Phillips screw and the front screw that locks the barrel, keeping everything safe and secure. Is this something that can be fixed at home? Or do I have to send this thing back to Savage? And could savage do anything? From what I’m seeing, I’d need to get a whole other receiver.
