$60.00
Glass Bedding
Perfect fit of action to the stock bed, eliminates micro movement between firings. Dampens action and barrel vibration when firing. Holds stable sighting in. Glass Bedding rifles will increase accuracy, sometimes by up to 150 % in group size. Extra bedding compound to stiffen other areas of a gun, such as the fore end of a Savage Axis, may increase price.
$150.00
Lapp Scope Rings 
When the utmost accuracy is sought and scopes are expected to remain sighted, lapping rings ensures a strong, solid contact between the scope and mounts. Optics mounted in misaligned rings often do not track properly when adjusted, and zero retention can also be problematic.  Lapping aids accuracy, helps the optic work properly and can prolong its service life.
$100.00
Muzzle Brake Cap
Removable, knurled cap to protect threads when muzzle brake is removed.
$80.00
Muzzle Brake & Installation
Greatly reduces recoil, up to 50% (The actual effectiveness depends on the cartridge for which the rifle is chambered) Recoil is caused by the expanding powder gasses that are pushing the bullet and must exit the barrel. Muzzle brakes reduce recoil by diverting part of these gasses to the side so that they do not add to the rearward recoil.  Pictures of available brakes below.

Why would you have to clean or break in a new rifle barrel? 
All rifles should be cleaned before shooting.  Rifles are shipped with packing oil or grease, which needs to be removed before you start shooting.  It’s not likely that you will damage your rifle if you don’t, but you will wonder why your rifle is not grouping and why it fouls  so badly.
The first few shots fired from your rifle are some of the most important shots that you will ever fire.  When a rifle barrel is made the rifling and chamber are cut with buttons and reamers. These tools will leave small burrs or cut marks inside the barrel. Breaking in a barrel is a method of removing the rough edges in a barrel that will shave off and hold copper jacket material. If the jacket material is allowed to embed itself in these pores it will in essence allow a copper lining to coat the rifling.  A copper laden barrel will wear unevenly and grab at random points causing a whole myriad of consistency issues.  It can cause velocity spreads and inconsistent flight characteristics. Also, the copper that is stuck in these pores will only get harder to clean. If you end up with small holes in the barrel, these holes will start to strip brass or copper from the bullets.  The holes will also fill up with carbon from the burned powder.  The carbon will start to rust or corrode in the barrel.  The corrosion will make the holes bigger which will strip more brass from the bullets and so on.  What you end up with is a nasty cycle which leads to an inaccurate rifle or one that will have a shortened life.  If broken in properly a barrel will not foul as bad and will clean up fast.
The amount of rounds it takes to break-in a rifle will vary from rifle to rifle.
There are not a set number of rounds that you will need to shoot for each step of the break in. Let the barrel talk to you.  It is recommended that you use copper jacketed factory ammo for break-ins.
Clean the oil and powder residue out of the barrel with a commercial bore cleaner with ammonia content.
Shoot 1 round.  After firing each cartridge, use a good bore cleaner (one with ammonia) to remove fouling from the barrel using only a rod and soaked patch.  Many bore cleaners use a petroleum base which you want to remove (with ammonia) before firing the next shot. This will keep the carbon from building up in the barrel (oil left in the pores, when burned, turns to carbon). We do not recommend anything with an abrasive in it (or a brush) since you are trying to seal the barrel, not keep it agitated.  Let the barrel cool between each round fired.  Repeat this step (usually between 3 and 10 times) until the cleaning process drops from about 5 or 6 patches down to 2 or 3.
Following the initial step, you may then shoot 3 rounds and clean in the same manner as step 1. Repeat until the cleaning process drops from 5 or 6 patches, down to 2 or 3 (Usually 2-5 times). Remember to allow the barrel to cool between shots.
Fire five shots, and then clean your barrel and you're done.

This is simply insuring that the burnishing process has been completed. In theory, you are closing the pores of the barrel metal that have been opened and exposed due to the manufacturing process. To keep the temperature cool in the barrel, wait at least 5 minutes between break-in shots. The barrel must remain cool during the break-in procedure. If the barrel is allowed to heat up during the break-in, it will cause unnecessary throat erosion and impede the steel’s ability to develop a home registration point, or memory.  It will have a tendency to make the barrel “walk” or “climb” when it heats up in the future.  We have all seen barrels that, as they heat up, start to shoot high and then “walk” to the right. This was caused by improperly breaking in the barrel.  If you take the time in the beginning and do it right, you will be much more pleased with the barrel in the future.
