Savage Arms to Introduce New Firearms at 2017 NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits Show
April 25, 2017
SUFFIELD, Conn. – Savage Arms is proud to continue its long tradition of innovation by unveiling an exciting lineup of new high-performance firearms at the 2017 NRA Meetings and Exhibits Show in Atlanta, Georgia, April 27-30. The introductions include bolt-action B Series Hardwood rifles, along with the virtually bulletproof single-shot Stevens 301. Caliber options are also expanded for the popular GRS, BA Stealth and MSR 10 Hunter platforms.
In 2016, Savage took bolt-action rimfire performance to new heights with the B Series rifle. The company adds a B Series Hardwood model for 2017, available in 17 HMR, 22 LR and 22 WMR. All feature a 21-inch Sporter barrel and ergonomic, walnut-stained hardwood stock with unique, modern checkering. A 10-round rotary magazine and Savage’s accuracy-boosting adjustable AccuTrigger are also standard.
The new single-shot Stevens 301 features a crisp, reliable break action and rugged, modern synthetic stock that withstands brutal abuse afield. It is available in .410, 12- and 20-gauge models.
Precision long-range shooters looking for the incredibly accurate, high-speed, low-recoil performance of 6mm Creedmoor will now find it as one of the choices in Savage’s proven Model 10 BA Stealth and Model 10 GRS rifles.
The short-action Model 10 BA Stealth is a lightweight, compact long-range chassis gun featuring a factory-blueprinted Model 10 barreled action mated to a custom version of Drake Associates’ Hunter/Stalker monolithic chassis. For its part, the Model 10 GRS houses a full suite of accuracy-enhancing features firmly within a GRS stock made of 15 percent fiberglass-reinforced Durethan, with 65 percent glass bedding material.
Serious hunters know the fast, hard-hitting .338 Federal delivers the range and terminal energy to topple any North American big game animal. For 2017, Savage adds the hotshot short-action cartridge as an option for its MSR 10 Hunter, a lightweight modern sporting rifle purpose-built for high-powered big game performance.
These products and many more can be viewed during the NRA Show at the Vista Outdoor booth no. 2542.
