    My Savage flux conversion

    I am finally happy with how my savage has turned out. Its taken many months, more money than I'd like to admit... And the classic, blood, sweat and tears! It started its days as a savage xl 5.9 with an LRP 32 spec.4 as its lungs. It was a great setup and I enjoyed it for a while. I found a...
