Savage A-17 Complaints
First off Piss poor Customer Service. They are very RUDE! New out of the box the design of the removable bolt is a piss poor design. A hard plastic that can mushroom out when taking down to clean. It should have a brass tip and I told them that when mine would not go back together. They told me I had to Order the part and sent to a GUNSMITH. Tell me why when you can take these apart to clean but won't go back together as preventive maintenance. Next problem: Trigger pull turned all the way down is 6 Pounds. Have to send the WHOLE Gun back and pay POSTAGE on top of that. That say 4 pounds is the least amount. But my .22 is 2 Pounds. When ask can I just remove the trigger and send back, the rude answer was NO. Seems they have an attitude when there guns are not right and wants to send any part that is cheaply made to a LICENSED GUNSMITH that the gun owner can do themselves. Come on, the poor design of the bold and a couple of screw to remove the trigger assembly for just a good annual cleaning. Why not just send me a new trigger and let me mail back the one that is 6 LB pull turned all the way down.
Savage A-17 Complaints

Savage Model 10 .308
The folks at Savage are great people who stand behind there product and offer great customer service. I had lost a bolt on my model 10. They sent rifle back with new bolt with tactical bolt knob and didn't charge me a penny. It was like Christmas Morning. Thanks Savage for hooking me up. I will go Savage over Remington any day of the week.

You got LUCKY, Savage has too many complaints and I'm one of them!

Best box gun for the price
I recently purchased a Savage Axis in 6.5 Creedmoor. The gun was on sale and very inexpensive for a rifle with a mounted scope. For the price I thought I would give it a try. This is the first Savage that I have owned and I am very satisfied with the way the gun has performed. The bolt was a little stiff out of the box, but after some cleaning and a few shots later the bolt is very smooth. I especially like the wide flat safety tab. It is very easy to reach and move. I am concerned that since it is made of plastic that it may eventually break. Only time will tell. Also, it is moves so easily you could possibly slide the safety without knowing it. The only real complaint I have is the trigger pull. The trigger is factory set at 4.5 lbs. When shooting from the bench it made it hard to squeeze the trigger without moving off the target. And there is no trigger adjustment. I'm researching to see if there is an aftermarket trigger that I can install to adjust down to a more reasonable trigger pull. It is for this reason only that I give it 4 stars. The only other concern I have is the locking tab on the clip. It too is made of plastic and I can see with wear and tear it may give way. Therefore, I am going to buy extra clips and put them away for later. The scope they put on the gun is cheap but functions well. With the price of the gun I did not expect a $300 scope. Once I got my shots on paper at 50 yards and 100 yards, ( 3 shots) I was able to sight in the gun at 200 yards with just 6 six shots. Part of that was my fault and not the fault of the gun. I am going to put part of the blame on the long hard trigger pull. All in all, I am very satisfied with the way the gun has performed. It certainly isn't a high end firearm, but functions very well for hunting and recreation. I would definitely recommend this gun to anyone.
There was a rebate offered with this gun that made the purchase more attractive. I submitted my rebate request with the required information. Taking all the pictures they wanted made it kind of cumbersome. A week later I received a notification that my refund had been denied because I did not identify the store where the gun was purchased. Even thought it was on the receipt that I photographed and submitted. When I entered the store information It kept asking me to upload a picture. I called customer support and told them of my difficulty. The gentleman was very polite and as helpful as he could be. He told me the problem may be with me trying to upload pictures from my desktop rather than using my smartphone. So I went to the store website and captured a picture and saved it to my phone. When I uploaded the picture from my phone it allowed me resubmit my rebate. I guess I'll find out in 6 weeks if it is approved.


Savage Arms does not honor warranty
I purchased a new Savage Arms rifle Sept 29 2020 and received it on October 5 2020.
When I opened the box at home I discovered one of the rifle rings was cracked. I requested warranty service form Savage on Oct 6 2020 and only received a general email stating it was received. I requested warranty service again on Oct 10 2020 and still no response. Buy Savage Arms product only on a "as is " basis. This is a junk company


Are you an FFL? If not they and you broke Federal Law. Big felony lots of prison time. No parole in Federal prisons. Everyone knows and every gun manufacturers warranty states: "Examine gun at dealers or FFL's for defects. Once the form 4473 is submitted to the FBI the sale is final". And waiting only 4 days during CoVid for a response is ridicules !

I agree with you on a JUNK Company. I got the A-17 and right out of the box to clean and oil before I ever shot it. There is a cheap Plastic tip you have to push in to remove the dust cover to remove the bolt for cleaning. The CHEAP Plastic head Mushroomed out and would not go back together. After trying for an hour I gave up and called the next day. I was told that "I WOULD HAVE TO TAKE IT TO A GUNSMITH AND HAVE HIM ORDER IT!"
WHAT... I told them then about the Piss poor design and the end cap should have a BRASS tit instead of cheap Plastic that can mushroom out. This is designed for the gun owner to take apart to be able to clean. Just because it is cheaply made, I don't feel like I need to pay a Gunsmith $80 Labor (one hour mim) for a $465 rifle that has never been fired! Then I was told I could send it back to them for them to replace it and that I would pay postage one way. I then told them since I have never fired the gun, I will take it back to the gun dealer for a full refund. After that the woman said she would make and "EXCEPTION THIS ONE TIME!" and about 10 days later I got the bolt so I could finally shoot it. Now Once I FINALLY got to shoot at a match, the trigger pull won't go any lower than 6 Lbs. AGAIN.. got to send the WHOLE GUN BACK, when the trigger can be easily be removed and be replaced. But they also say it will only go to 4 pounds. Funny. My .22 will do 1.5 to 2.0 pull. A MUST for Competition and long range precision shooting! Will never buy another Savage Cheap Parts again!

I bought a Savage Axis 30-06 for my daughter. The very first bullet put in it went click. The primer was dented but the bullet did not fire. We tried 15 rounds and had 4 misfires. The gun went back to the factory.It took 4 months to get it back. Guess what same problem. So their Master Gunsmith worked on it. They said he replaced the firing pin and spring. well guess what I fired 16 rounds and had 2 misfires. So the gun is there for the third time. Now they are telling me the gun is at factory standards and are shipping it back to me. They are telling me it is an ammunition issue. I used bullets from 5 different boxes and had the same problem. I took 2 of those misfired bullets and put them in my 30-06 and they both fired just fine. VERY UNHAPPY CUSTOMER :(


I was having problems with a mag not feeding the last round in my .223 caliber Savage lightweight hunter Mdl 11/111 . I called Savage customer support and a polite and knowledgeable lady asked a few basic questions, then asked for the serial # of my rifle and "bang" there was a new replacement magazine in the mail to me at no charge. Absolutely awesome customer service. Thank You Savage Arms!

Must have new people now. The ones in there now are not only RUDE, but they have a I don't give a crap attitude. I have a trigger problem. Telling me I can't send just the trigger back, but the whole gun which is 2 months old and only shot once for sighting in the scope, and a 50 rounds in a competition shoot. 6 Pound pull is the lowest it will go. Plus I have to pay postage! I will never buy another SAVAGE!

I have never had trouble getting rebates I have turned in except savage arms I called to check on my rebate and they said they have no record of me sending one in and since it is past the original date they cant except any resubmissions but I couldn't re submit any way I sent in the original receipt and upc code. just funny other manufactors have not had any problem with my rebates getting to them or sending my rebate check. Won't buy a savage again!

Savage did not honor rebate.Purchased savage rifle because they were offering a mail in rebate with purchase. Submitted all the required information. Received letter that claim was denied due to original UPC code not being received and requested that it be sent. Issue is that the original UPC code was sent with other information so I obviously cannot send again. Attempted 4 times to contact customer support with no answer.Desired SettlementI would like to get the rebate that was offered as part of the sale.Business Response The department that handles our rebates has been contacted and the matter discussed/resolved. Savage will honor the rebate request.

I purchased a Stevens Goldwing over and under 12 gauge shot gun which failed after less than 50 shots. I am unable to get warranty service.I purchased a Stevens Goldwing double barrel shot gun from Bass Pro in April. My son uses the gun in trap competitions. After less than 50 shots, the gun jammed. I returned the gun to Savage Arms immediately for warranty service. Since then I have contacted them multiple times and they always plan to replace the gun with a new one in 2 weeks. I have gotten this response at least 5 times, but the gun hasn't been shipped. The gun is marketed as an American made product, but the factory in TURKEY is out of stock. At this point, because of the shoddy workmanship and the lack of service, I feel I am due a full refund. The company's only offer is a 50% refund, even though the gun was only used for less than a week.Desired SettlementI feel I am due a full refund as the company can't replace the merchandise in a reasonable time frame.Business' Initial Response [redacted],I tried calling first and after I left a message, I sent the e-mail below. I'll let you know the resolution. Please be advised that we are closing for our two week summer shutdown starting at the end of today and returning on July 15th.[redacted] ...----------------------------------------------------[redacted],I received an e-mail this morning from the and tried calling you but unfortunately, just left a message. Is there a number where you can be reached during the day? Sometimes I find it easier to discuss a topic rather than try and convey all thoughts in writing.[redacted] ...[redacted]Consumer's Final Response (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.)I will accept the response when I receive payment. The last call I received from the company was that the check would be processed in two weeks, after their shut down. Business' Final Response I spoke with [redacted] and made the decision to refund his purchase price due to our lack of inventory. The [redacted] will call him also and process the check request. At this point, the file is closed.I also suggested that should he ever have a question or an issue, just ask the operator to speak to a Director. We are proud of who we are and what we do and if we have done something wrong, we will make it right![redacted] ...[redacted]Savage Arms, Inc.[redacted]
