    Savage has had an interesting history, as their development occurred about the time of the introduction of smokeless powder which revolutionized rifle cartridges. The history of the company indicates that the original Model 99 Lever Action High Power Rifle, invented by Arthur Savage, continues to be the dominant product in the arms production of the Utica plant.

    The company was quick to take

    It's that time of year again and Savage Arms has brought a lot to the plate for this year's SHOT Show. There are several brand new models as well as some existing models offered in new configurations and/or calibers. Before I dish out all the juicy details and photo's of the new models though, I'll first grace you with a brief rendition of my personal thoughts and opinions on what's new ...

    In January of 2013 Savage Arms announced an all new rifle chambered for an all new rimfire cartridge. The rifle was their new B-Mag bolt action, and the cartridge was the .17 Winchester Super Magnum. The first B-Mag rifles started showing up at the dealers in late summer and initial reports for the sporter barreled synthetic stocked model were ho-hum to say the least. Accuracy was sporadic and a good number of buyers experienced feeding ...

    In my never ending quest to simplify and speed up my reloading process I decided that it was time I try out one of these new-fangled electronic powder dispensers/measures. Up to this point I have been using a Lyman No. 55 powder measure and a Lyman beam-type scale to dispense and weigh each and every charge. A random Lee Dipper scoop would be employed to "trickle" in or scoop ...

    The fine folks at Savage Arms have been trying to regain a foothold in the American shotgun market for a little over a decade now. In 2004 Savage brought forth its first non-bolt action shotgun in over 15 years - the Russian made (Baikal) Stevens Model 411 Upland Sporter side-by-side 12-gauge shotgun. It was a nice looking, well made scatter gun with an MSRP of just $395, but it disappeared from the catalog after just one year.

    Savage Arms has made a number of changes to bolt release location, factory stocks, trigger guards and bottom Drop Box Magazine (DBM) parts over the last few years. New Savage owners soon discover the factory synthetic stock, trigger guard and bottom parts found on entry level Savage models are cheap, flimsy and often limit accuracy potential. ...

    One benefit of the Savage platform, whether it's an Axis or a 110-Series, is how easy it is to change barrels and how readily available pre-fit barrels are these days. Even though pre-fit barrels are intended to be ready to install right out of the box, ...

    If you’ve been a gun nut for any length of time you’ve surely learned that in this game sometimes you just have to man up and spend some money to get the quality that you really want. Whether it’s for a precision rifle, match grade barrel, competition ready pistol or in this case a top of the line scope, the old adage of “you get what you pay for” still applies in certain instances. That’s just what I did earlier this summer when I finally broke down and purchased the scope we are looking at today, a Vortex Viper PST ...

    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 ...
