Video Product Review: New Savage 110 Rifle With Accufit
The longest rifle in continuous production in America, the Savage 110, just got an upgrade. Matching that reliable and proven action, the popular AccuTrigger, and the new Accufit customization options, Savage has added two gunsmith-level upgrades to their standard configuration rifle.
Off the shelf, the new 110 comes with four different length of pull inserts to customize the length of the gun to the shooter. It also has five different stock combs to set the height of the riser to perfectly align the shooter’s eye with the scope and get a perfect cheek weld each and every time. This level of customization is usually reserved for much more expense custom furniture, but the new Savage 110 offers it standard. Each of these adjustments can be easily made at home with just a standard Phillip’s screwdriver and no gunsmithing experience is needed.
Coupled with the Accufit is the Accustock, which integrates a rail with contact points all along the action rather than just at one or two spots. This spreads out vibration 3-dimensionaly and minimizes movement of the action to further improve accuracy.
The third feature is one that Savage shooters know all too well, the AccuTrigger. With its safety blade that also acts to properly position the finger, the Accutrigger can be adjusted by the user without taking the gun to a gunsmith. The additional safety feature provides drop protection by requiring that the trigger be pressed to fire. And the trigger pull is as smooth and crisp as ever.
The new 110 is available in 10 different models, with features like threaded barrels, stainless steel, muzzle breaks for long range shooting, and a heavy bull barrel like our test model; the Varmint. Each comes in multiple caliber configurations.
The furniture on the Model 110 has also received an upgrade. A no slip gray polymer protects the finish from moisture and checkering on the wrist and fore end give an even stronger grip. A wider and flatter base makes prone or rested shooting even easier without a bipod or support. The new 110 comes with a removable magazine, and is pre-tapped for scope bases, as well as a super cushy recoil pad. Check out all of the new Savage Model 110 configurations at your local Sportsman’s Warehouse.
