Savage Arms is a US gunmaker based in Westfield Massachusetts. The company is well known for its rifles and shotguns in the hunting and shooting sport categories. You couldn’t ask for a better built bolt action rifle or shotgun. Today we’ll review the line of Savage Arms offerings and give you the scoop on what the have to offer.
A visit to Savage Arms site reveals they’re mainly about two things: shotguns and rifles. How you break it out from there? Well it depends on what you’re interested in. The company caters to the hunting crowd but also offers lines of precision rifles and clay sport shotguns.
A Brief Word on Craftmanship
These guns are sexy. The precision line of rifles alone makes you feel like your favorite long range hunter, stalking his game in the woods, for that perfect shot. Judging the wind perfectly. The distance perfectly. Savage must have a team of elves (like Santa’s, not Lord of the Rings kind) crafting exactly what any precision shooter or hunter might need.
Savage Arms Rifle Lineup
This manufacturer could classify its firearms in many different ways. They could classify by type (centerfire, MSR, rimfire, or center pull), families (too many to list but some are AXIS, Hunter, Impulse, M110, etc), and finally the Precision (precision, minimalist, backcountry xtreme). For simplicity’s sake, we’ll go by series.
These firearms come in multiple calibers. The 110 Elite Precision comes in .223 Remington, .308 Win, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6mm Creedmoor, .300 Win-Mag, .338 Lapua, and .300 PRC. In states where shooting bullets greater than .30 caliber, the 110 series will certainly meet your needs.
For those born with left-hand syndrome, the 110 Precision and 110 Elite Precision models come in a left hand configuration.
A and B
The A22, B22, B17, and B22 Magnum Precision models are all machined into one piece from an aluminum billet with a Picatinny rail and light trigger. Their calibers are predominantly .22 LR and .17 HMR. If you’re not familiar with the .17 HMR and .22 WMR, you should read up on them. Their stories are pretty interesting. Of course, we sell ammo for these calibers as well.
The Axis comes in .22 LR, .243 WIN, .308 WIN, 6.5 Creedmoor, 30-06 SPFLD, and .270 WIN. It’s meant to be a budget version of their precision rifles for the consumer who “wants to shoot one hole groups without putting holes in his wallet”.
Savage Arms doesn’t stop there with their rifles though. Check out their minimalist line – seriously – check it out below. How amazing is that camouflage??? These rifles are all chambered with the .22 LR, .22 WMR, and .17 HMR caliber.
I’d recommend these guns as they are lightweight and minimalist to the core. If I could hunt in my area with these riles I would. I mean – the rifles weigh around 5-7 lbs. Unless you’re fighting a war (Red Dawn style) – these are perfect for a quick hunting trip (or a long one with many miles to cover).
I own a rifle similar to the one shown below. I paid much more for it. You’d be wise to pick one of these up. The extended range of larger calibers makes it the perfect companion for an elk or moose hunt.
The 110 ultralite is available in .308 WIN, 6.5 Creedmoor, .280 Ackley IMP, .270 WIN, 30-06 SPFLD, .300 WSM, 6.5 PRC, and .28 Nosler. The barrel is carbon fiber and has a fluted bolt to keep the weight of the gun down for long range trips (hopefully successful ones!) back and forth from the kill site. These rifles also come in a variety of camouflage patterns and even cater to lefties.
