Savage Prefit Replacement Barrels

McGowen Precision Barrels is one of the leading manufacturers of aftermarket Savage replacement barrels. You’ll see our Pre-Fit Savage barrels on hunting rifles, long range competition rifles and Savage Striker pistols. The Savage rifles and pistols have become increasingly popular in the past 3-4 years due to the ease of installation of a new barrel. The simplicity of changing out the barrel allows the owner of the rifle or pistol the ability to use the same rifle for varmint or dangerous game hunting, all on one platform! We offer the Savage Pre-fit barrels in a variety of configurations including lengths, contours, chambers, material and finishes. This allows you to take your off-the-shelf Savage rifle or pistol and make it a tack-driving machine.

We also offer the Savage Muzzle Loader pre-fit barrels. They are available in 40 caliber (400/408), 45 caliber (450/458) and 50 caliber (500/510) in a variety of twists. These barrels are maufactured using our same quality barrels that we use in all of our pre-fits. Muzzle Loader barrels are available in either Chrome Moly or Stainless Steel for an additional $40 to the base pre-fit prices below.

It is important when ordering to know the shank size of your Savage rifle. Typical Savage Strikers are all considered Small or Standard Shanks.

Shank Sizes for the Savage are approximately:
1.06″ for Small or Standard Shanks & 1.12″ for Large Shanks.

So you don’t have a set of calipers to measure the shank size? Savage Arms has made it pretty easy to figure out the shank size by the length of your Savage lock nut. The Small or Standard shank Savage’s lock nut is approximately .875″ Long or if you are using a tape measure approximately 7/8″ long. The Large shank Savage’s nut is approximately .652″ Long or if you are using a tape measure approximately 5/8″ long.

To buy a Savage Nut with the purchase of your barrel, you can call in or order online following the links below. If you find that you need a barrel nut for a recent barrel order you have placed and you end up ordering them separately, a shipping charge will be added to the nut, but the shipping costs will be credited to your custom barrel purchase and they will be shipped together. Adding your barrel’s order number in the note box would help ensure that we can provide you this accommodation.

Our gunsmith recommends that the nut is torqued 70 to 80 ft lb of torque.
