Team HuntStand’s Josh Dahlke traveled to the High Plains of Wyoming in October 2017 to hunt pronghorn antelope out of a tent camp on a gorgeous working cattle ranch. A main objective of this Western hunting mission was to field test a pre-production rifle from Savage Arms. We were sworn to secrecy at the time, unable to speak a word about this new Savage (watch the video from Josh’s hunt you’ll notice the butt end of his rifle is cloaked in Mossy Oak camo wrap). Now we can reveal what was hiding under the covers.
Officially announced today, Savage has updated its Model 110 rifle with a new system called AccuFit. As you’ll see in our video above, AccuFit allows shooters to personalize the fit of their 110 by making quick and easy adjustments to length-of-pull and comb height with nothing more than a Phillips-head screwdriver. These adjustments are essential for getting the best performance out of a rifle, but typically they require awkward aftermarket accessories or a costly trip to the gunsmith.
“There’s nothing magical about fit that mechanically makes a rifle shoot any more accurately,” explained Beth Shimanski, senior marketing manager at Savage. “But proper fit allows you to shoulder the gun and align your eye with the sights in a consistent manner, without having to move your head around to compensate for being the wrong height and distance from the scope. And better shooting form boosts accuracy.”
AccuFit, AccuTrigger and AccuStock: Savage is working awfully danged hard to help you become a more accurate shooter.
