Savage Arms MSR 15 Recon and MSR 15 Patrol Deliver Upgraded Performance as Standard Features

February 03, 2017

SUFFIELD, Connecticut – Savage Arms recently announced two models of semi-automatic Modern Sporting Rifles to its popular lineup of high-performance firearms. On the AR-15 platform, the new MSR 15 Recon and MSR 15 Patrol are chambered in 223 Wylde, which enhances out-of-the-box accuracy and allows safe, reliable function with both 223 Rem. and 5.56x45mm ammunition. Both rifles redefine the category with the kind of tack-driving precision and seamless performance you’d expect from a Savage. Shipments are currently being delivered to dealers.

Savage’s new MSR 15 Recon comes standard with upgrades serious shooters demand, including a BLACKHAWK! AR Blaze trigger, free-float handguard and upgraded Savage barrel with a 223 Wylde target chamber. Its 5R rifling and a Melonite QPQ finish ensure the most consistent, accurate performance in any conditions, while the Recon’s custom-forged lower receiver and BLACKHAWK! adjustable buttstock and pistol grip impart a look that stands out from the crowd.

A BLACKHAWK! handguard, pistol grip and adjustable buttstock further separate the Patrol from all other MSRs.
