SHOT Show 2019: Savage Rascal Target XP

posted on January 23, 2019
Fitted with both a 4X 32 mm fixed-magnification scope and a sling-swivel-stud-mounted bipod, the new Savage Rascal Target XP comes from the factory outfitted with everything necessary to make it the ideal first rimfire rifle for a child. Chambered in .22 Long Rifle, but also capable of firing either the .22 Short or .22 Long cartridges, the Rascal Target XP is a single-shot bolt-action available in both left- and right-handed models. 

Only 30.6” in length, with a 16.125” barrel, the Rascal Target XP weighs less than 6 lbs., even fully accessorized. The bolt gun mates a heavy-contour, threaded (1/2x28 TPI) carbon-steel barrel with a black hardwood stock. And like much of Savage’s bolt-action rifle line, the Rascal Target XP makes use of the user-adjustable, single-stage AccuTrigger system for added safety.

With an MSRP of $405, the Savage Rascal Target XP is positioned to introduce a whole new generation of kids to the joys of the shooting sports. For more information, go to
