Just couple of days ago, I bought a new Savage 220 at Ganger Mountain. I bought the weaver scope bases for the Savage 111 and the fit up to the mounting holes just fine. However, when mounting the forward mount, the screw closest to the muzzle will not sit all the way. It appears to be hitting the threads on the barrel where it mates to the receiver, not allowing it to be torqued down. I took a pic of the screw hole and a pic of it with the mounting screw in.

I called savage and they said that one of the screws should of been a shorter one for the front but they're all the same.

I ordered the mount they recommend and it came in the mail today. I checked and all of the screws are the same length with that one, too.

I'm wondering if something is amiss here.

Anyone?

The 220 gas no iron sights and comes with Weaver-style bases pre-installed.

Rail mounts are offered by EGW and Warne.

I realize they don't come with iron sights. I'm confused to why you brought it up. Mine didn't come with weaver mounts.

Guess my question is when you mounted your scope rails, where all screws the same size? I can't get the very front hole to screw in all the way. Savage says it's normal. I'm calling bs.

My 220s came from Savage with 2-piece bases installed. What brand of base or bases you might have I have no idea.

The best base for the 220 is the EGW: https://www.amazon.com/Evolution-Gun-Wo ... B01B1ZX5LS

That's the one I just installed. The front is a little different from the savage 110 mounts.

A phone call to EGW @ 215-538-1012 should resolve the mystery.
