Savage Arms entered the AR market early in 2017, and its premium entry in the category—the MSR 15 Recon—is the focus of this week's NRA Gun of the Week. Chambered for .223 Wylde, the MSR 15 Recon features parts from BLACKHAWK!: a six-position Axiom buttstock, Knoxx pistol grip, flip-up backup irons, and the company’s nickel-boron-treated trigger. The rifle functions with a mid-length, direct-gas-impingement system, which feeds from the supplied 30-round Magul polymer magazine. The rifle’s 16.1” barrel features 5R rifling and is Melonite-treated. An aluminum handguard with M-LOK accessory slots provide plenty of room for accessories.
