Went to tear it down today to lube the breech plug/vent liner threads, and low and behold i cant get the breech plug out!! Ive got it standing on end soaking in wd40. Any experience with this? Also if and when i do get it out how do i clean the plug and liner to insure the oil is gone? Will rubbing alcohol work?

I highly doubt the WD40 will work. Try using the supplied wrench and the whacking it with a hammer on the end. Should break the bond and remove. If not you can try Pine-sol. Soak the same way you were with WD40. As for removing residue just wash out with dish detergent like Dawn and water.

I did not have the same issue removing. Once you get it out, a little anti-sieze should prevent future problems.

I use Clean Break CLP to clean vent liner and breech plug.

I use teflon tape on my Savage's breech plug. Works very well.

Best of luck freeing that bound plug.

And if the breechplug is stuck, then your ventliner prolly will be, too. The supplied allen wrench is very cheap, so you may want to try a different one when trying to break the ventliner free. Do what the owner's manual says when you get it all straightened out: shoot 2-3 shots when clean, then break it free and retighten to break the carbon bond that causes it to seize.

I GOT IT!!!! Thanks for the advice guys, i soaked it overnight in wd40. Took it to my local sporting goods store where i bought it and 4 of us got ahold of it and broke it loose. Thats why i buy from them. I might overpay a bit but a big chain store would not have helped me, and to me that goes a long way. Stay tuned im gonna start shooting Saturday im sure there are alot of questions to come \:\)

Good people down there. I'll agree they are a little high on some stuff but you don't have to wait for it to ship and they are very knowledgeable and will steer you in the right direction.

Savage seems to have a problem with this. On my last Savage I went to take the breech plug out to do the initial cleaning. It would not budge. I got some help, and we still couldn't break it loose. I ended up having to send it back to Savage so they could check to see if they had cross-threaded the plug when they installed it.

My guess is they are doing a half-azzed job of lubing the plug and then installing with an air wrench. It was a major pain to deal with, but a great rifle after the initial issue.
