Savage Arms Tests a 200-Year-Old Question: Can One Gun Do It All?

Saturday, September 14th, 2019

WESTFIELD, Massachusetts –  By sending a single rifle around the country, hunting different animals with different hunters, Savage Arms hopes to answer a question that’s stirred debate in hunting camps and gun clubs for decades: If you could own just one gun, what would it be?

Savage hopes the answer is its “AccuFit” stocked version of its venerable Model 110, and that proof of its versatility is revealed in the “Traveling AccuFit” campaign that starts this fall. You can follow along as the rifle makes stops from Texas to Wyoming and Montana to South Carolina. Follow our story at www.savagearms.com/fitforall.

While Savage Arms does not believe that there is a single caliber to ethically hunt all game animals everywhere, the rifle company does believe that any rifle equipped with the AccuFit Stock is a good place to start for any hunter.

“A hunter’s rifle is the most crucial part of his or her hunting gear,” Beth Shimanski, Director of Marketing for Savage Arms, states. “It must be accurate, reliable and built for the long haul. But to bring the most confidence to every hunter when it’s time to take that shot, the rifle must fit them. That’s exactly what we kept in mind when bringing the AccuFit stock to market in 2018. An innovative, accurate, high-quality rifle that’s suited to fit any hunter no matter the situation they are in.”

The Traveling AccuFit campaign takes the concept of “one size fits all” and intends to prove it by sending a single Model 110 Long Range Hunter rifle, chambered in .280 AI, across the United States to hunt multiple species with a variety of different hunters that vary in age, size, and experience level.

One rifle, six regions, seven hunts, and dozens of shooters. Can one rifle really be “fit for all?” Follow along this 2019 season as we set to find out www.savagearms.com/fitforall.

SIG P365 SAS

Saturday, September 7th, 2019

During the NRA Annual Meeting I was shown a couple of upcoming P365 models. The P365 XL is already out, but the one that really had me excited was the SAS model, which stands for SIG Anti Snag.

There are SAS models of other SIG pistols and they are designed as the ultimate Concealed Carry.

As you can see from these profile shots, the sights and controls don’t protrude.

The FT Bullseye sight is embedded into the slide and incorporates both fiber optics for day and tritium for low light.

Additionally, the barrel and slide are ported. SIG claims up to 30% less muzzle flip and zero front sight fouling, since there isn’t one.

Finally, the slide catch and takedown levers are flush.
