Captain - you are already well versed in Nikon then. You might be aware of this already, but at least on my non-Accutrigger 110, I had to buy a rail to mount the scope to because of the length of the tube on the Nikon was much shorter than the mounting holes on the gun.
If you have any similar issues with your Savage (I assume that is what the new Nikon is going on) let me know and I can dig up where I bought the rail. I can't recall but I do remember having a hell of a time finding a rail that would fit and was actually in stock.
