Savage Arms: What’s Old is New Again

Since its introduction in 1958, the Savage Model 110 has served hunters and shooters well as an economical, hard-hitting, accurate rifle. Now it’s even better with the new Model 110 Big Game and Specialty series. These revamped rifles have received a fresh look and a full complement of new and improved features. Customized performance is the hallmark of the redesign, and these new rifles solve the three main issues shooters usually pay a gunsmith to address: fit, trigger pull, and bedding.

Savage AccuFit System

The all-new user-adjustable AccuFit system and stock is the key. It allows shooters to customize length of pull and comb height. Inserts included with the rifle can be installed in seconds with a Phillips screwdriver.

The new AccuStock also has a rigid chassis embedded in the stock. Combine these custom-like features with the standard adjustable AccuTrigger, and the 110s become affordable custom rifles, right out of the box. To help bring all this wonderfulness to the consumer, Savage has a full line of revamped 110s to choose from, covering everything from general-purpose to niche offerings.

Savage 110 Hunter

The Savage 110 Storm features a detachable-box magazine, stainless-steel barrel, and gray synthetic stock. It is available in a plethora of cartridges, from .223 Remington to .338 Winchester Magnum.

The 110 Engage Hunter comes out of the box with a mounted and bore-sighted Bushnell Engage riflescope. The 110 Predator is a Realtree Max 1 camo version chambered for six coyote-killing cartridges. All feature 24-inch barrels and a four-round detachable magazine.

Savage 110 Long Range Hunter 338 Lapua

For long-range 110 Savage excitement, there’s the Long Range Hunter. It comes with a 26-inch barrel and is chambered for the 6.5 Creedmoor, .260 Remington, .308 Winchester, .300 WSM, .338 Federal, 6.5×284 Norma, 7mm Remington Magnum, .300 Winchester Magnum, and the .338 Lapua Magnum (shown).

Savage 110 General Purpose and More

If you want the ideal general-purpose 110, there’s the 110 Scout. Configured to emulate Jeff Cooper’s concept, this 110 has a 16.5-inch barrel, a 10-shot detachable magazine, open sights, and an extended eye-relief scope rail. Chambered for the .223 Remington, .308 Winchester, .338 Federal, or 450 Bushmaster. Other specific-purpose new 110s include the 23-inch- barreled 110 Bear Hunter, the 26-inch-barreled 110 Varmint, the 20-inch-barreled 110 Hog Hunter, and the wicked 110 Wolverine in 450 Bushmaster.

Savage 110 Scout

The Savage 110 Scout features the AccuFit System, flat dark earth stock, forward mounted rail, adjustable iron sights, Magpul AICS-style detachable box magazine, soft grip fore-end, and pistol grip surfaces.

Savage 10/110 Stealth Evolution

The 10/110 Stealth Evolution chassis rifle is chambered for six distance-delivering cartridges, including the 6mm Creedmoor. The rifle blends pinpoint precision with torture-tested toughness, and pairs a heavy fluted barrel, blueprinted 10/110 action, 5R rifling, and an AccuTrigger, with a monolithic aluminum chassis, finished in rugged bronze Cerakote.
