Savage Arms brought out the Model 42, a gun that, like the Model 24, combines the utility of .22 –cal. rifle and .410-bore shotgun, but with a composite stock and fore-end at an economical price. For 2016 the company extended that line to include a takedown model. The Model 42 Takedown breaks down much like a typical over-under shotgun, with two halves that separate at the breech, making for a smaller footprint and fitting into an Uncle Mike’s Go Bag (included with purchase). This is a feature that appeals to backpackers, hunters and the preparedness set.
