Savage Arms is a well-known maker of quality rimfire rifles, a reputation it has continued to grow in the past few years with the introduction of its various semi-automatic A-Series rifles such as the A17 and A22 Magnum.
Now, the company is expanding its rimfire lineup even more by bringing out a whole new bolt-action rimfire rifle line. The new Savage B-Series rifle line features 12 brand new models, with caliber options including .22 LR, .22 WMR and .17 HMR.
The new B17, B22 and B22 Magnum bolt-action rimfire rifles that make up the Savage B-Series are available in a wide array of configurations, including Sporter Barrel, Heavy Barrel, Heavy Threaded (suppressor-ready) Barrel and Heavy Stainless Barrel. All of these new rifles incorporate a new, ergonomically designed modern stock that features a higher comb and a tang-mounted safety, as well as a target-style, more vertical pistol grip that allows the shooter to hold the rifle in a more comfortable, natural position without straining the wrist.
The rifles in the new Savage B-Series also utilize the manufacturer's excellent AccuTrigger and a 21-inch button-rifled barrel for outstanding accuracy. As with the popular A-Series rifles, the new B-Series guns use Savage's 10-round rotary magazine, which has proven quite reliable. All B-Series rifles are also drilled and tapped for scopes.
The new Savage B-Series rifles are shipping to dealers now and MSRP will range from $281 to $413, depending on the model. For more information on the B-Series rifles, visit the Savage Arms website.
