Stevens Savage 200

I got a Stevens savage model 200 .300 win mag picked it up off a guy for dirt cheap. I was wondering if anyone knows much about these? I want to get a new trigger for it the pull on it right now is 5lbs 2 oz. I know theres no adjustment on it and I know there are no parts for this model. Ive been reading on different forms on the net and kinda gathered that the Stevens model 200 is the same gun as the model 110 just cheaper stock and no trigger adjustment. So I'm assuming any accesories for a 110 long action with work with a 200 long action.

If anyone knows anything about this the information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
-Shane

I found a website that shows the disassembly and reassembly of the stevens model 200 and it shows that the only major difference in the 110 and the 200 is that the 200 isnt equiped with an accutrigger like the 110 and  the 200 has no magazine-release either. So to me it seems like anything for a 110 with work with my 200. Also I just ordered a rifel basix trigger 14oz-3lbs for a model 110 I guess we'll see if it works with my 200.

You heard wrong about the trigger not being adjustable.  Remove the stock and you will see an adjustment screw right next to the trigger.  Adjust it all the way out until the tension spring just makes contact with the screw.   Should leave the trigger pull at about 3 pounds.  It's not a match trigger, but on the 2 I have, it's not bad.  My groups run 3/8 or less at 100 with the .243win, and 1/2 with the 7mm-08.  I wouldn't own one in .300 win mag because they're kinda light.  They are both very reliable and accurate in the field and won't hesitate to use either one at any time.

Actually, I have wondered the same thing.  From what I have been told the design doesn't allow very well for the cement mixer test.  The tolerances where the bolt face enters the chamber/barrel throat can stick if there's too much grit in the action.  They did have 2 rifles that passed all tests with flying colors, but they still didn't make it at the time due to most armories were already used to the 700 and had plenty of spare parts for repair and/or modifications.  Simple matter of logistics, really.  Heard the same thing from 2 reputable gunsmiths when I asked the question in western Washington where I lived at the time.

Thanks willhunt4food, I just adjusted that sear screw and the pull is lighter. Gotta run buy a trigger pull gauge and see for sure. But also do you know if its true then that any savage model 110 parts will work with the model 200? Like stocks? I want to get a heavier stock with a magazine release also. I dont really care for having to eject each round individually. And also would like to get a stainless barrel.

My .243 has an aftermarket Boyd's thumbhole stock on it.  Short action=mod 10, long action=110.  My friend has a mod 10 sav. in 243, and the bolt from his rifle fits nicely in the stevens.  The only real mechanical difference (except the accu-trigger) is the shape of the thumb safety button is different, so not interchangeable.  everything else is.

Another question for you. The boyds website shows that their stocks do not work with the center feed magazine style stevens. Which is the style I have, where the magazine is bolted right into the stock. So can I order some conversion kit or somthing to make the magazine right to the receiver so I could use a boyds?

"   IMPORTANT: WE DO NOT AT THIS TIME MAKE THE STOCK FOR THE 1ST GENERATION SHORT ACTION (1958-1987) 4.522" OR THE 3RD GENERATION CENTER FEED MAGAZINE SHORT ACTION (2005 AND UP) OR THE 3RD GENERATION LONG ACTION CENTER FEED MAGAZINE DESIGN.
THE EASIEST WAY TO TELL WHAT ACTION YOU HAVE IS TO DISASSEMBLE YOUR GUN. THE STOCKS WE BUILD ARE FOR ACTIONS THAT HAVE THE STEEL MAGAZINE-WELL ATTACHED TO THE RECEIVER. THE 3RD GENERATION CENTERFEED MAGAZINE WILL STAY IN THE STOCK .  "

I'm just a little confused I do not know very much about rifles but this is what boyds says on one page but then another page also says this...

"  

The Savage 10 SA Stocks Are Interchangeable With The Stevens 200 Short Action and the Savage 11, 12 & 16 With Action Screw Spacing Of 7 1/4". These Stocks Have A Blind Magazine. They Are Cut To A Standard Sporter Barrel. If You Have A Larger Barrel, You Will Need To Relieve Wood In The Barrel Channel. The Length Of Pull On This Item Is 13 3/4". It Is Made From Birch Laminate. The Overall Length Is Approximately 32". The Weight Is Approximately 2.8 Lbs.

 

The 3rd generation center-feed actions can be fit to our 2nd generation stocks with minor alterations. The gap of the front of the mag well will need to be “blocked” (front to back) to hold the steel magazine frame in the correct position. There will need to be a flat spot inlet to accept the rear L-shaped tab, with attention to the depth as this is a bearing surface for the action. On short action 3rd generations the front escutcheon hole needs to be enlarged so screw hole location can be moved forward approx. a 1/16th of an inch. Woodworking gunsmithing experience is suggested when converting to the 3rd generation guns.   "

So does this mean a gunsmith should be able to make a boyds FT work with my centerfeed style savage???
