    Savage Arms has discovered that the bolt on some B.MAG rifles may inadvertently catch the safety button and slide it forward into the "fire" position. This condition is primarily present if downward pressure is applied to the bolt too early while pushing it forward. While Savage has received no reports of accidents due to this condition, we have decided to offer free retrofits of all B.MAG rifle bolts out of an abundance of caution and in our ongoing commitment to quality and safety. ...

    Scout rifles were first defined and promoted by Jeff Cooper back in the early 1980’s as a new class of general-purpose rifles. Such rifles are based around a bolt-action rifle chambered in .308 Winchester (7.62x51mm), are less than a meter in length, weigh less than three kilograms (6.6-lbs), come with iron sights, are fitted with a practical sling (such as Ching slings) for shooting and carrying, and are capable of hitting a human size targets out to 450 meters ...

    The Burris FullField E1 looks right at home on the Savage 93R17.

    Let's face it, not all of us can afford the top of the line scopes whose prices often exceed $2,000 these days. Heck, most of us can't afford or simply don't want to spend over $1,000 on a scope. Fortunately if you fall into that latter group of shooters you're in luck because the quality and wide selection of scopes priced in the $500 to $1,000 range has never been better.

    First I should probably ...

    As I was sitting here organizing my notes in preparation of writing this review I couldn't help but chuckle at the question that popped into my head, "How did our predecessors ever get along without illuminated reticles?" One can't ignore the fact that most every optic manufacturer the world over offers at least one line of scopes with an illuminated reticle. Even leupold jumped into the fray a few years ago ...

    For those who ready my first review of Savage’s new A17 semi-automatic .17 HMR rimfire rifle, you already know that it had some issues and accordingly my review of the rifle was less than favorable. Upon returning that first sample to Savage I expressed that I would be more than willing to review another ...

    Ever since the 17 Hornady Magnum Rimfire (HMR) hit the scene in 2002 shooters have been clamoring for someone to offer it in a semi-automatic rifle. Several aftermarket companies tried to come up with a workable solution for existing models, and Remington attempted to offer a model using their 597 platform, but all of them either never came to fruition or were plagued with problems and ultimately recalled by the manufacturer.

    That may be changing though as Savage Arms introduced an all new semi-automatic rimfire rifle at the 2015 SHOT Show dubbed the A17 that was specifically designed ...

    The following video from Savage Arms highlights the mechanical features and function of the all new A17 semi-automatic rimfire rifle chambered for the .17 HMR cartridge.

    While the new A17 rifle is designed to function with all 17 HMR ammunition, some older ammunition may cause reliability problems in extreme conditions. A few years ago CCI (who manufacturers ...

    Over the years Savage Arms has used three different twist rates on their firearms chambered for the .223 Remington cartridge. This is primarily due to the increase in bullet weights being used by the U.S. Military and NATO ammunition, and as the bullet weights went up the twist rate had to increase accordingly to ensure bullet stabilization. Savage used 1-9", 1-12" and 1-14" twist rates for rifles chambered in .223.

    I have to admit that as a shooter and hand loader one of my least favorite activities is cleaning cases. It's just one of those tedious jobs that we all hate but still have to do. Like most people, when I first started reloading I simply cleaned each case by hand. It was a slow, time consuming process but it got the job done and at the time I wasn't shooting/reloading nearly as many rounds as I do now so it was relatively effective and practical. ...

    Over the years Savage, Stevens and Fox each offered various models of side-by-side shotguns. From the bare-bones, no-frills Stevens 311 to the more elegant and refined Fox models such as the B-DL and B-SE, each proved to be a durable, reliable field gun that has served hunters and shooters for decades - even generations.

    The Fox FA-1 semi-auto shotgun sold by Savage in 1981 and 1982 was made by KTG in Japan. FA-1 stood for Fox Automatic #1 and it featured a rounded rear receiver top similar to the Remington 1100. The FA-1 was only offered in 12-gauge with either a 28" Modified or 30" Full choke vent rib barrel - both of which were chambered for 2 3/4" shells. Overall length was 47 3/4" to 50 1/2" depending on the barrel, the length of pull was 14", and the weight was listed as 7 1/2-lbs. ...

    Unlike most manufacturers, Savage chose not to mark their shotgun barrels with standard choke markings of Full, Modified, Improved Cylinder and Cylinder. Instead they chose to use a series of asterisk (*) marks as code to specify the choke constriction of a given barrel. This code can be found stamped on the barrel just forward of the receiver. ...

    I’ve owned my Savage Arms MKll-FV for about year and have been very pleased for the money spent. The plastic stock, though giving the rifle a rather “economy model” look is actually quite functional, at least in terms of the way the barreled action is secured to it. ...

    My 13-year old son and I have been competing in local scoped rifle matches for the past couple of years. We've been sharing a Savage 10FP in .308 which has worked, but being selfish, I slowly been accumulating the pieces to put together a rifle specifically for him so I could have mine back!

    Let's face it, the vast majority of rifle owners out there are hunters, and as hunters they typically only pull their rifles out of the closet or gun safe for a few weeks a year for hunting season. Each fall they dig it out of the back corner of the safe, blow the dust off, search through their stockpile of ammunition for that half a box of rounds they had left over from the previous year, and they head out to the range. They take a few shots to verify it's zeroed or to re-zero and then they're done and satisfied ...
