Although Savage Arms is best known for its value-priced, yet accurate and feature-filled Model 110-based hunting rifles, and more recently, its competition-ready Model 12 variants, since the early 1990s the company has offered tactical-oriented models in its law enforcement (LE) line. These rifles, however, are available for civilian sale. In 2009 the company unveiled its newest and most technologically advanced LE models to date: the 10 BAS-K and 10 BAT/S-K. The rifles represented not only Savage’s first venture into modular firearm construction, but also served as a means to a greater, more powerful, end.

In fact, so positive was feedback regarding the 10 BAS-K and 10 BAT/S-K rifles that, beginning in February/March 2009-shortly after the Model 10s were displayed at the SHOT Show-development of the .300 Win. Mag.- and .338 Lapua Mag.-chambered Model 110 BA got underway.

Five years later, this gun is still getting high marks. To see it in action and learn why it has become so popular, watch the video below hosted by Online Managing Editor Shawn Skipper, or go to SavageArms.com.
