Savage Arms has announced that it is now in the AR, or MSR, business, introducing four models simultaneously, some with a full suite of custom upgrades packaged as standard features. The four-gun family, dubbed the MSR 10 and MSR 15 for “Modern Savage Rifle,” includes a pair of MSR 10s and two MSR 15 models. Check them out here:

The MSR 10 Long Range is chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor or 308 Win.,  and is built on a compact frame with a non-reciprocating side-charging handle. Its BLACKHAWK! AR Blaze two-stage target trigger and Magpul PRS adjustable buttstock optimize the inherent accuracy of the upgraded Savage barrel, which features 5R rifling and a Melonite QPQ finish.


The Savage MSR 10 Hunter is a compact sporting platform that still packs a punch with either a 308 Win. or 6.5 Creedmoor chambering. The rifle squeezes even more performance from its upgraded Savage barrel with a 5R rifling, a BLACKHAWK! AR Blaze trigger, and a tough Melonite QPQ finish. Other upgrades including a free-float fore-end, custom-forged lower receiver and BLACKHAWK! adjustable buttstock and pistol grip.




AR-15 platforms, the most popular style of modern sporting rifles, are found in the Savage MSR 15 Patrol and MSR 15 Recon.

The MSR 15 Recon comes standard with serious upgrades, 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 consistent, accurate performance in any conditions, while the Recon’s custom-forged lower receiver and BLACKHAWK! adjustable buttstock and pistol grip stand out from the crowd.


The new Savage MSR 15 Patrol is a step up from many of the rack-grade M4 clones. It features an upgraded barrel featuring a 223 Wylde target chamber, 5R rifling and a Melonite QPQ finish. A BLACKHAWK! handguard, pistol grip and adjustable buttstock further separate the Patrol from all other MSRs. You can read the rifle's first test and evaluation by Field Editor B. Gil Horman here
