First Look: Mauser M18 Savanna Rifles

First Look: Mauser M18 Savanna Rifles

Mauser has just announced the M18 Savanna, a new line of affordable bolt-action rifles that will be available in several calibers and feature threaded barrels.

The Mauser name will forever be inseparable from the bolt-action rifle, and the Mauser M98 action still serves as a gold standard for the platform today. While the company still offers some M98 models for those who are devoted to the classics, Mauser has also made great advancements with their other bolt-action designs. The M18 is one such rifle series, and hunters have been appreciating them since they were first released. The newest addition to the lineup is the Mauser M18 Savanna rifle, and like other M18s, it offers exceptional accuracy in multiple calibers at an affordable price.


Featuring a rugged “Savanna tan” synthetic stock to match its namesake, the M18 Savanna is available in .223 Rem., .243 Win., .270 Win., 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 PRC, 7mm Rem. Mag., .30-06, .300 Win. Mag. and .308 Winchester. The barrels are cold-hammer-forged and made of German steel, and all are threaded to accept a suppressor or muzzle device. All models will have a 1/2×28 thread pitch except for the .30-06, .300 Win. Mag. and .308 Winchester models which are threaded 9/16×24 instead. All M18 Savanna rifles are also ready to accept Remington 700 LA-style scope mounts.


The rifles include a 60-degree oversized bolt, which when coupled with the three-locking-lug action should ensure very smooth cycling. The trigger is adjustable from 2.25 to 4.25 pounds and the action features a three-position safety as well.

Jason Evans, CEO of Blaser Group, said this about the new Mauser:

The new Mauser M18 Savanna presents the opportunity for even more American hunters to experience the benefits of German engineering and manufacturing…This ultra-rugged rifle is a true value delivering superior reliability, durability, and accuracy in its class.

All Mauser M18 Savanna rifles are backed by a sub-MOA accuracy guarantee and a 10-year factory warranty. A standard 5-round capacity magazine is included with each rifle, but 10-rounders are available as well. MSRP is $899.99 and they are available now.
