Savage Precision Series Chassis Rifles
Savage Arms announced a new family for firearms the Precision Series. This comes after Savage’s announcement of their sponsorship of the 2019 GAP Grind/Bushnell PRO/AM. This is a two-day match that will pit individuals and teams against each other in a unique competition designed to introduce amateur shooters to the world of professional shooting sports.
110 Elite Precision
The Savage 110 Elite Precision is a new top-of-the-line 110. The 110 Elite Precision has an Adjustable Core Competition chassis (ACC) from Modular Driven Technologies (MDT).
The Adjustable Core Competition chassis system weighs 5.9 lbs but can accept a series of weights that can bring the total weight up to 12.3 lbs, which allows for better recoil management and faster shots on target.
The weights are added to either the buttstock, interior forend or exterior forend M-Lok. All of the weights are quickly removable and can be adjusted at the range.
The ACC chassis accepts AICS-pattern magazines and features the MDT vertical grip for added control. The grip can be changed out for most any AR-15 pistol grip if the vertical grip is not to your liking.
The front of the chassis has M-Lok the entire length of the forend for various aftermarket attachments. Another feature designed for competition is the 17″ of available ARCA/RRS dovetail, with retention screws so that accessories don’t fall off mid-stage.
The MDT ESS skeleton rifle stock allows for multiple adjustments without tools. The user can add horizontal, vertical, and cant adjustment to the cheek riser and buttpad for a custom fit. Once the cheek riser is adjusted it can be locked in place. The length of pull can also be adjusted and fine-tuned with the thumbwheel and then locked in place.
110 Elite Precision Rifle Features
While the chassis is a major part of the Savage 110 Elite Precision, there are other features that make this rifle stand out. The Savage factory blueprinted action is a stainless steel, flash nitride target receiver while the bolt is a titanium Nitride bolt body. A 1.5-4 lb user-adjustable AccuTrigger adds to help users further customize their rifle.
The Savage 110 Elite Precision is available in eight calibers. Available calibers are 223 Rem, 308 Win, 6mm Creedmoor, 6.5 Creedmoor, 300 Win Mag, 300 Norma, 300 PRC, and 338 Lapua. MSRP is $1,999 to $2,149 depending on caliber.
The B Series Precision
Savage is also taking care of the rimfire line of rifles with new B Series Precision rifles in .22 LR, .22 WMR, and 17 HMR. All three of the rifles feature a custom 1-Piece MDT Chassis machined from billet aluminum. The custom chassis also has adjustable length-of-pull and comb height.
Heavy 18″ threaded barrels provide the accuracy the Savage rimfire rifles are known for. Other features include a 1-Piece Picatinny rail, 10-round detachable magazine, and of course a user-adjustable AccuTrigger that Savage is known for.
Savage A22 Precision
The third rifle series is the Savage A22 Precision. The A22 Precision is a semi-auto 22 LR that is also in a custom 1-Piece MDT Chassis machined from billet aluminum. It has all the same features as the B Series Precision rifles with an 18″ heavy barrel, AccuTrigger, 10 round magazine, and an over-sized charging handle. MSRP for the A22 Precision is $599.
