Optics For starters, Bushnell optics offerings will make it easier to put bullets in the 10 ring. If you appreciate the magnification and styling of a traditional scope, take a good look at the Bushnell 1-4x24 Throw Down PCL riflescope. The simple styling and common-sense features will work perfectly with the Savage MSR platform, offering enough magnification to make the longer shots, yet a nice, wide field of view for close work. It features an illuminated, drop compensated reticle, and a power change lever that allows the user to rapidly change magnification settings. And with a 30mm tube, this scope will gather all sorts of light, and get the job done at nearly any range. Mount this scope in the Weaver SPR Optic Mount , which features trim, aircraft-grade aluminum and skeletonized rings, for a really cool package. The new Bushnell Engage line of scopes is another great fit for the platform, particularly the Engage 2-7x36mm or 3-9x40mm scope with the Engage MOA reticle. If you're looking for a lighter-weight optic, yet want to maintain the single focal plane, try Bushnell's TRS-25 HiRise. The 6-ounce optic features 1x magnification and a three-MOA dot, adjustable for 11 different brightness settings. It even comes with a riser block to situate the optic at the proper height for use with the MSR platform. Slings & Cases There are countless ways to carry your Savage MSR, but few will beat the BLACKHAWK! Storm Sling XT. Easily adaptable, the Storm Sling XT makes perfect sense for your Savage MSR, whether you hunt, shoot 3-gun or rely on it for self-defense. BLACKHAWK! is known for its wide array of tactical gear, and the company makes an especially useful case for the Savage MSR. Despite an ordinary name, the BLACKHAWK! rifle case is no ordinary case; it's built with the frequent shooter in mind. With .375-inch-thick closed-cell foam and rugged zippers, this case will not only stand up to abuse but thoroughly protect your rifle – sights and all. With four magazine pouches on the outside, you'll be ready for a weekend at the range, or any other situation imaginable. Extras The BLACKHAWK! AR-15 No Latch Ambi charging handle uses an ambidextrous, oversized grip, and a spring-loaded design that holds the charging bar against the receiver. It makes reloading faster, especially when loading with gloves. Available in black, gray, dark earth and olive drab, you can add a custom look in addition to the functional benefits. Put all the elements together, and you not only have a high-performance out-of-the-box MSR—you have one built around your specific wants, needs and shooting style.
