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.
