Sorry to hear about that Pat.I've heard about similar situations with all makes of Rifles.Personally I've never seen one canted so far off to one side before.I have heard of using epoxy to level scope bases, but I don't think you could put enough in there to fix that.If you can, go pick up another set of bases & try them out, if its the same, then you will know the reciever was tapped incorrectly.Best of luck, Lee

That really sucks. I would send it to Savage and let them take it apart and put a new action on it. It has been my experience that they will fix it right and put more detail in to quality when something like this happens. They do not need you to get two bad rifles to talk about. It could and does happen with any manufacturer. I am a Remington guy myself, but have seen and shot several savages that were plenty accurate. I would not be happy with it the way it is and I do not think you will be either. I do believe that Savage will fix it right and better than a run of the mill rifle if you send it back.
I took the rear base off and turned it around and remounted it just to check. Same result. The rear is to the left. Also, with the bases off I can see the rear holes are off. I think I will try the advise of shaving the base on the left side and see what I get. Can't hurt to try. I don't relish the thought of Savage having to break the gun down.

You're right. That's pathetic. Write a letter to Savage's CEO, Ron Coburn, and ask how they can let something like that go out the door. He won't be pleased.
So, I found the problem. The 2 rear holes are drilled slightly to the left, but more importantly they are drill and tapped at quite an off angle. See if you can tell the difference. UPS is picking it up tomorrow.
