Performance

Our firearms are stripped of pretense and gimmickry, leaving only muscular, no-nonsense engines of high-performance. Just like the people who use them.

With Savage, you can be guaranteed that our high-performance features are standard on every one of our guns. Whether you use them for recreational or competitive shooting, self-defense or hunting, every inch of our products is designed to give you an edge. We're constantly looking ahead, finding new ways to leverage technology to push performance ever higher.

All our category-changing innovations have come from just such a place of principle. We're constantly looking ahead, finding new ways to leverage technology to push performance ever higher. This spirit of American, get-it-done ingenuity has always been our driving force. We are proud of our reputation for product improvements which become the standard for accuracy in the industry.

01. Accutrigger™

The first-of-its-kind system is easily adjustable by the shooter, offers a light, clean pull with no creep, and prevents the firearm from discharging if jarred or dropped.

02. Accustock™ Chassis

This rigid rail system firmly embedded in the stock throughout the fore-end of the rifle. Rather than uni-directionally engaging the action at one or two points, ours engages the action along its entire length.

03. Headspace Control

By carefully threading our barrels into place with their individual action and bolt, it forms a hand-fit, perfectly-matched set that is locked in place with a barrel locknut. We call it our "zero-tolerance" approach to headspace.

04. Floating Bolt Head

Because the Savage floating bolt head is designed to allow a few thousandths of an inch of movement, it can adjust itself for a perfect fit only typically found with hand-lapped locking lugs.

05. Precision Rifled Barrels

Savage proudly employs both specialized machinery as well as experienced operators. Each and every Savage centerfire barrel is checked and, if needed, hand straightened by the same skilled craftsman.

06: Factory-Blueprinted Actions

On select long-range and target rifles, Savage takes the extra step of individually truing and blueprinting their actions, much like your custom gunsmith would do. But we do it right here in the factory before those rifles are even assembled.
