“The 110 Ultralite is a highly refined Model 110,” said Jessica Treglia, senior brand manager at Savage Arms. “Our engineers have gone to great lengths to strip weight off the rifle, without sacrificing any of its functionality or accuracy. With the additional weight reduction from the Proof Research barrel, you’ll instantly feel the difference.”
