I don't know when they (Savage) started it, but there is a small (about 1/2) F/pin retracting spring in the back of the bolt. This seems to be lost most of the time you take one apart. I don't believe I ever heard of it causing a mistake firing if it was missing though. I would guess with the others about the problem. The trigger mechanism parts are long and thin and don't lend themselves to thinning out very well.
As far as a slamfire goes, don't ever wear heavy gloves when hunting and go for a fast 2nd shot.
