    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! A friend of ours ...

    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 ...

    I have to start off this review with a confession of sorts. When I first learned of the new Model 42 from Savage Arms that was announced at the 2013 SHOT Show I was elated, but then when I saw the first pictures of it I'm pretty sure I used every foul word in the English language to communicate my disdain for it. When I finally saw one in person a few months later at the local gun shop and I was even further disgusted by what I perceived ...

    The issue as to whether or not Savage 110-Series bolt handles can be used on Savage Axis rifles has come up numerous times on the forum since the Axis was launched in 2010. Each time we say "no", and each time there's at least one person who insists on disagreeing with us. ...

    It seems a number of people out there don't seem to know what primary extraction is or what it does. Hopefully this quick FAQ and the accompanying video's will resolve that. ...

    Another question that gets asked quite often on the forum is how to replace the ejector. To answer this (hopefully once and for all), I once again grabbed up the camera and snapped some pics to demonstrate the installation of the Ejector assembly. ...

    The question of 'how to remove and/or install the extractor, its spring and the detent ball has been asked around here several times as of late, so I grabbed up my camera and figured I would see if I could help out. Follow along as I explain how simple and easy the procedure is. ...
