110 High Country 2

Affordable and lightweight, Savage Arms' 110 High Country opens the mountain rifle to all hunters.

How The 110 High Country Is Set Up For The Most Rugged Hunts:

  • Depending on caliber, rifle weighs 8.1 to 8.5 pounds
  • Durable PVD-coated bolt handle, receiver, barrel, trigger guard and magwell
  • Lightweight AccuFit stock — fully adjustable LOP and cheek riser
  • AccuStock internal chassis to create a ridged overall platform

Ounces are pounds. Nowhere is this more evident than trekking on a backcountry hunt. Just getting to the game with your gear winds you, let alone packing out an elk quarter or an entire mule deer. Thus was born the mountain rifle.

The lightweight bolt-actions have become popular in recent decades as hunters have pushed deeper into the woods and mountains. Yet, for many, the generally high-tech irons are cost-prohibitive — as merciful to your shoulders as the might be. Though, they could become more common with Savage Arms taking a crack at producing the featherweight rifles.

Now shipping, the gunmaker’s 110 High Country has about everything you’d want in mountain rifle – especially price. With an MSRP of $1,129, the gun should hit the shelves well under a grand, making it a fraction of the price of similarly configured bolt-actions. And, all in all, hunters get a pretty good value out of the deal.

In addition to the tried and true 110 action and fully adjustable AccuStock, the rifle has some features generally found on custom rigs. The most notable are the weight-saving spiral fluted barrel and bolt. Nice touch. Though, it’s what you can’t see — heft — that should turn out to be the selling point. Ranging between 8.1 and 8.5 pounds depending on caliber, the 110 High Country should prove a manageable burden on the way up to treeline or beyond.

Other features of the rifle worth mention are its adjustable AccuTrigger, overmolded surfaces on the stock, threaded muzzle and PVD coating on its stainless steel action and barrel. In all, Savage is offering the 110 High Country in 11 chamberings, including a number of magnum options.

The 110 High Country is built to maximize accuracy with a spiral-fluted barrel and bolt, as well as the Model 110 action secured three-dimensionally along its entire length within the AccuStock internal chassis. The AccuFit system lets hunters customize length-of-pull and comb height of the TrueTimber Strata synthetic stock. Plus, the user-adjustable AccuTrigger offers a crisp, clean pull critical for making precise shots at extreme distances. The low-friction, coyote brown PVD coating on the barrel, receiver and other critical parts is harder than competing finishes and protects against corrosion and heat. At just 2-4 microns thick, the coating does not interfere with the rifle’s tight tolerances.
