    Suppose you're a newcomer in the arms-making industry - an upstart battling giants that have devoured small competitors. Suppose you've invented an amazing rifle - but no one knows about it. And suppose the rugged men of the American frontier won't even try your rifle because they figure the caliber is too small to slap down a grizzly or an elk. What do you do? You prove that your gun can stop a whale! It's as simple as that. . . if the year is 1900 and if you're as brilliant as Arthur Savage.

    When it comes to custom rifles it seems everyone has their own idea of exactly what a custom is. Some think changing something as simple as the bolt handle or trigger on an otherwise stock gun makes it a custom. Others feel that at minimum a “custom” has to have at least an aftermarket barrel or stock to warrant the title. Still others feel that to truly be a custom everything except the action itself has to be aftermarket. And last but not least are those who feel that the true definition of a custom means building a rifle completely from scratch using a “custom” ...

    First introduced in 2010 as the Savage Edge, the entry level Savage Axis (name changed due to copyright/trademark issues) has taken the shooting world by storm in just a few short years. In fact, last I heard (summer 2012) Savage had sold nearly a quarter million units in two years time which is quite an accomplishment. To put that into perspective, that's 342.5 Axis rifles being sold every single day for two years.

    Various parts that make up the Model 25 bolt assembly

    The Savage Model 25 bolt assembly differs from that of the long-standing 110-series model bolt that most people are familiar with. The bolt assembly consists of different parts and the assembly/tear-down procedure is different as well. This article will identify the components that make up the Model 25 bolt assembly and show how to properly assemble/disassemble the assembly.

    While putting together our 2005 project rifles, a lot of thought was given to the individual components to be used in the test. While both rifles would be shooting a total of three thousand rounds, care had to be used in selecting a bullet and speed to make sure that both barrels would have consistent results. Many bullet manufacturers were considered, but only a few made the short list.

    The short list, as it were, consisted of Hornady's A-Max, Sierras Match King and Lapua's Scenar. Those three were chosen for various reasons, some of which were the inherent quality of the bullets, the long bearing surface and subsequently high ballistic coefficients, and the boat tail design. The rifles were to be used primarily as long distance rifles, so these factors were necessary ...

    I was very excited when I was given the chance to do a product review on the Savage Mark II BRJ. I have always had a soft spot for rimfires and this one is a real head turner.

    Lately there have been a few threads asking about identifying the new or old MKII and 93 actions. Savage used to make two different receivers/actions. One for the MKII (.22lr or .17hm2) and one for the 93 series guns (.22mag or .17hmr). Sometime in the past year or so Savage started making the "E-Receiver". The e-receiver is now used for all of the 4 common rimfire calibers. Here are some pictures that show the past and present guns. ...

    2003 - Savage introduced their new ACCU-TRIGGER. Besides the trigger change, the receiver now has a round top in the rear scope base area which uses the same base in the rear as in the front. The Weaver #46 base will fit both ends as well as the #402 extension base if you have a need for mounting extremely long or short tube scopes.

    This is actually the second time I have reviewed a Predator Hunter model in this caliber - the first time being when the Predator Hunter first came out back in the summer of 2007. The only difference was that last time it was a right-hand model with a blind magazine and wearing Mossy Oak Bush camouflage, while this time around it’s a left-hand model with a detachable box magazine (DBM) and RealTree MAX-1 camouflage. ...

    For 2011 Leupold announced an all new line of rifle scopes dubbed the VX-R. What separates this line apart from the rest of Leupold’s hunting scopes is the fact that it features an all new proprietary FireDot illuminated reticle system. While illuminated reticles are nothing new, Leupold has upped the ante with its innovative and highly functional control system.

    This information only applies to Savage Model 110's made between 1958 and 1965.
    I have a 1960 vintage 110 with the same trigger mechanism you are speaking of. I also have several post '66 vintage 110's that have the "new" trigger. After using both---my personal preference is the "old" trigger. ...

    Savage Barrel Shank Sizes - standard on left, large on right.

    In 2002 Savage began offering rifles in the Winchester Short Magnum (WSM) and Remington Ultra Magnum (RUM) calibers. When these were finally in the catalog, there was a change made to the barrel shank diameter. Standard barrel shank diameter on standard calibers are 1.055" x 20tpi. On the new WSM, RUM, and SAUM calibers the shank diameter is 1.120" x 20tpi. ...
