Savage Arms MSR 15 Recon and MSR 15 Patrol Deliver Upgraded Performance as Standard Features

SUFFIELD, Connecticut – February 3, 2017 – Savage Arms recently announced two models of semi-automatic Modern Sporting Rifles to its popular lineup of high-performance firearms. On the AR-15 platform, the new MSR 15 Recon and MSR 15 Patrol are chambered in 223 Wylde, which enhances out-of-the-box accuracy and allows safe, reliable function with both 223 Rem. and 5.56x45mm ammunition. Both rifles redefine the category with the kind of tack-driving precision and seamless performance you’d expect from a Savage. Shipments are currently being delivered to dealers.


Savage’s new MSR 15 Recon comes standard with upgrades serious shooters demand, including a BLACKHAWK! AR Blaze trigger, free-float handguard and upgraded Savage barrel with a 223 Wylde target chamber. Its 5R rifling and a Melonite QPQ finish ensure the most consistent, accurate performance in any conditions, while the Recon’s custom-forged lower receiver and BLACKHAWK! adjustable buttstock and pistol grip impart a look that stands out from the crowd.

Features:
• Custom forged lower receiver for unique look
• Melonite QPQ 16 1/8-inch barrel with 5R rifling
• 223 Wylde target chamber for use with 223 Rem. or 5.56x45mm
• BLACKHAWK! AR Blaze trigger
• Mid-length gas system

The new Savage MSR 15 Patrol is a step up from the many rack-grade M4 clones popular today. With an upgraded barrel featuring a 223 Wylde target chamber, 5R rifling and a Melonite QPQ finish, the rifle delivers accuracy well beyond mil-spec. A BLACKHAWK! handguard, pistol grip and adjustable buttstock further separate the Patrol from all other MSRs.

Features:
• Mil-spec upper and lower receiver
• 16 1/8-inch barrel with 5R rifling and Melonite QPQ finish

    Weren’t these left side-charging (and traditional T-handle) when announced? What happened to that?

    And they lost me in the first sentence with “BLACKHAWK!”…
