I admit it. I love a nice rifle, and, so, I get excited when I see a new model. Why? Because I always want to know what new options and possibilities manufacturers are creating for people like me.
So, when I saw that Savage has a new series of precision rifles, I wanted to know more about them. Fortunately, Chris Eger has details for us:
With a series of three platforms chambered in everything from rimfires to magnum calibers, Savage’s new Precision Series rifles cover a lot of bases.
The three branches of the family– the bolt-action 110 Elite Precision and B Series Precision, along with the semi-auto A22 Precision– have a lot of real estate held down as they run in a host of 11 popular calibers.
The 110 Elite Precision utilizes Savage’s 10/110 style action but in a rifle built around an MDT ACC aluminum chassis with a fully adjustable stock that includes a vert grip and AICS magazine. With a 1.5- to 4-pound user-adjustable AccuTrigger, titanium nitride bolt body and a taper aligned muzzle brake, the rifle is offered in .223 Rem, .308 Win, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6mm Creedmoor, .300 Win Mag, .300 Norma, .300 PRC, and .338 Lapua.
“The MDT chassis are an ideal match for these Savage actions,” said Jessica Treglia, senior brand manager at Savage. “The pairings will allow shooters to custom fit every aspect of these rifles to suit their needs.”
But you have to pay to play. MSRP ranges from $1,999 to $2,149, depending on caliber.
With a one-piece MDT chassis machined from billet aluminum and a stock with length-of-pull and comb height adjustments, the B Series Precision is more scaled down from the 110 Elites but maintains a lot of the same features, although it is listed as a branch of the company’s B22 tree. Offered in .22LR, .22WMR and .17HMR, the rifles all use an 18-inch threaded barrel with a flush muzzle cap.
MSRP is $599 regardless of the caliber.
Using a custom one-piece MDT chassis machined from billet aluminum (stop us if you heard this before) and an 18-inch heavy threaded barrel, the A22 has an oversized charging handle. The rimfire semi-auto with a 10-round detachable magazine is offered in .22LR only.
MSRP is $599.
Eleven different calibers, not to mention other choices in design. Chances are, you’ll be able to find a rifle in Savage’s new precision line that will be a nice addition to your gun collection.
So, if you’re in the market for a new rifle, you may want to take the time to look at these Savage rifles.
