Savage Guns For Gold With MSR 15 Competition


Teaming up with Proof Research, Savage Arm's MSR 15 Competition shoots for top-of-the-line performance.

How the MSR 15 Competition is configured:

  • Custom-length adjustable gas system
  • .223 Rem/.224 Valkyrie chamberings
  • 18-inch Proof Reserch carbon-fiber wrapped stainless-steel barrel
  • Tunable muzzle brake
  • Magpul CTR buttstock
  • Hogue Pistol Grip
  • 5.8-pound weight unloaded

Occupying the place where accuracy meets economy, Savage Arms is renowned for being the workingman’s tack driver. Those days are far from over, but the company in recent years has turned an eye to more ritzy, purpose-built options that definitely veer from its bargain roots. The new MSR 15 Competition certainly falls into this category.


Teaming up with Proof Research, Savage’s carbon-fiber wrapped barrel hot rod is meant to stay neck in neck with top-of-the-line race guns. Of course, light, agile and strong come at a premium and the MSR 15 is among the most expensive guns the company presently offers. A whopping $2,875 MSRP, the AR isn’t going for chicken scratch. In the realm of carbon-fiber wrapped barrels, this is about par for the course. There are few examples of complete factory-build guns with the feature dipping below the $2,000 mark, including the bolt-action variety. Though, to set your mind (and wallet) at ease, when it comes to carbon-wrapped barrels it doesn’t get much better than Proof.
