Savage is celebrating its 125th anniversary by unveiling over three-dozen new products at he 2019 SHOT Show, including a number of limited-edition rifles.
The 40 new models being introduced this year include an expansion to the company’s popular XP line of scoped rifles. New models include the 110 Apex XP series, featuring Vortex scopes, and a pint-sized Rascal Target XP. The existing AXIS series has been upgraded with a modernized stock with new looks and improved ergonomics, and the company has added more AXIS and AXIS II rifles sold as base models so hunters can purchase their optics of choice.
Savage’s AccuFit system lets shooters quickly adjust comb height and length-of-pull for a personalized fit. The feature is an integral part of a new long-range rifle, the 110 High Country. For long-range, precision and competition shooters that favor semiautos, Savage’s MSR 15 and MSR 10 rifle lines continue to expand with new options. All deliver accuracy, performance and a full suite of custom upgrades packaged as standard features.
Recoil-adverse turkey hunters can rejoice at the new specialized single-shot turkey gun designed for use with Federal’s .410 HEAVYWEIGHT TSS turkey loads. Speaking of gobblers, the Accufit system will be found on two new bolt-action turkey shotguns. Sub-bore scattergun fans will also enjoy the new 16-gauge 555 Enhanced over-and-under. And those looking for more utilitarian fare can look forward to major stock upgrades on the Stevens 320 Security and Field Grade pump-action shotguns, said to improve the reliable platform’s look and feel.
“Savage is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of rifles and shotguns dedicated to hunting, competition, defense and having fun at the range,” said Beth Shimanski, Director of Marketing for Savage. “It’s another huge year for Savage. We are excited to deliver another year of innovative firearms in many caliber and gauge options. Whether you are looking for a training rifle for young shooters, a competition-grade modern sporting rifle, a reliable shotgun for hunting or personal defense or a lightweight hunting rifle packaged with a scope: Savage has those needs covered, plus more.”
