    It's that time of year again and Savage Arms has brought a lot to the plate for this year's SHOT Show.

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 ...

    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. ...

    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.

    When you lift the bolt it cocks the firing pin a given amount by rotating the cocking button up the cocking ramp. When you close the bolt, the cocking button is forced to drop back down but is held back in the cocked position by the top sear tab. When you pull the trigger, it releases the sear which allows the cocking piece to move forward via the firing pin springs' tension, which in turn drives the firing pin forward to strike the primer. ...

    January is the last month for squirrel hunting in Wisconsin. In my opinion this is the best hunting of the year. The thaw or warm days above freezing are best. The woods are clear of most of the leaves on the trees, and with this cover missing holes and nests are easy to locate.

Suffice to say my enthusiasm for this action as a platform for many uses continues to increase.

    I had been considering a big game hunt for quite some time; considering either Moose or Elk somewhere in the States or Canada, when I stumbled across a posting by Rob Martin on the Savage Shooters website where he was preparing to leave for his hunting trip last October. I jokingly posted that I was jealous and wished him luck. Rob replied and said, "Hey man, don't be jealous; Come along with us." I thought, "yeah right, as if that will happen." ...
