    The Model 212 Camo as delivered from Savage.

    Aside from introducing a number of new models to their catalog each year, the engineers at Savage Arms have also kept busy making small changes and improvements to many of their existing models. Some are for the better and others have proven to be for the worse or utterly unnecessary from ...

    A new shooting season has come and my old Shilen Ratchet rifled barrel was at 1000 rounds fired, but it was still shooting well. Even so I thought maybe it was time to re-chamber it or try a new barrel, but anything that would follow it would really have to be super impressive. I noticed this year that Northland Shooters Supply was offering a new line of barrels. At first I sarcastically thought “Wow, another new barrel maker!” but I then noticed that the barrel was from the makers of Krieger and this sparked my interest. I have owned several Krieger barrels in the past and they have always proven to be a top notch barrel.

    Out of the secret laboratory of Savage comes a new rifle called the Axis, a lower cost, rugged rifle, based off the Savage 110 design marketed towards the younger shooter, with an all-new modern design. The Axis is designed to compete against the Remington 770 rifle, and other entry class hunting rifles. Savage did a good job of keeping this rifle a secret, as soon as I heard that such a rifle existed, I had to get one to see what it was all about.

    Standard rifling on left, Ratchet Twist on right.

    Needing a new barrel for my long range Savage I decided to go with a Shilen barrel - but not the normal six groove rifled barrel, rather their “Ratchet Rifled” four-groove profiled land barrel. The Shilen “Ratchet Rifled” (or as I call it, the “Ratchet Twist”) barrel has a radical rifling design that has little publicity or little known about it.

    Ever since I was first introduced to Savage firearms back in 2001, I had always wondered why they didn't offer their Model 210F Slug Gun in a 20-gauge version. It just made sense to me as not all guys like the brutish kick of a 12-gauge slug gun, and most female and youth hunters would be far more comfortable with the smaller gauge. ...

    News that Leupold & Stevens, Inc. had purchased the Redfield name and intended to revive the brand first hit the presses back in the spring of 2009. By the fall of 2009 the new Redfield Revolution line of hunting optics entered initial production and the new models were finding their way into the hands of gun writers at many of the well known publications. ...

    In the past few years we’ve seen a rather new trend develop in the firearms industry, that being an onslaught of so-called “tactical” firearms. First it was the shotguns followed shortly thereafter by bolt-action centerfires, and last year we saw a plethora of tactical rimfire rifles in both bolt-action and semi-automatic variants. ...

    One of the top-selling segments in the rimfire market is and always has been semi-automatic rifles. They’re fun little plinkers that young and old alike can enjoy shooting all day without breaking the bank, and most are reasonably affordable. Today we’re going to look at Savage’s Model 64FV-XP package rifle, which is their sole heavy-barreled semi-automatic offering.

    In the spring of 2010, Savage unveiled their new top-secret rifle the Edge, and within less than two moths after Savage unveiled this new rifle, EGW created a new, one-piece Picatinny/Weaver mount for it. At this time, there is no other alternative for a one-piece mount, for the Edge. This is the first product I have ever gotten from EGW and I will evaluate this new mount and describe how it fits, works, and how well it is made.

    The Edge is a new altogether different design rifle that has a dissimilar scope base mounting distance than that of the 110/10 model Savage rifles. The Edge is able to use the two-piece mounts made for a round back Savage 110/10 series rifle, but this limits the availability of ...

    When someone mentions the name Leupold, people automatically recognize the name for top-notch quality in sporting optics. I was excited to get a Leupold FX-3 competition silhouette scope, and hopefully it would fill my need for a lightweight benchrest scope that would fit 1-inch rings.
