Savage Arms continues to expand its A22 semi-automatic rifle lineup, and the first new-for-2020 rifle is the company's BNS-SR. The new offering features the proven, dependable Savage A22 action set inside of an attractive, wood-laminate stock that provides an enhanced look and feel to the gun that's still impervious to the elements.
Each Savage Arms A22 BNS-SR is constructed with a button-rifled, carbon-steel barrel that's optimized to produce accuracy and consistency from shot to shot. The .22-Long-Rifle-chambered firearm features a straight-blowback action and feeds from the company's reliable, 10-round rotary magazine.
The barrel measures 18" long and features a 1:16" rate of twist designed to stabilize today's most popular .22 LR projectiles. The muzzle is threaded with a 1/2-28 TPI thread pitch that's compatible with most .22-caliber muzzle devices and sound suppressors on the market.
Other features found in the Savage Arms A22 BNS-SR include the company's popular AccuTrigger, which can be adjusted by the user to optimize trigger-pull weight. The rifle also ships with a two-piece, Weaver-style optics base, allowing owners to mount their Weaver-compatible optic of choice.
Each Savage Arms A22 BNS-SR measures 37" in overall length and features a length-of-pull of 13.6". Unloaded, the rifle weighs in at 6.6 lbs., and the suggested retail price on the new gun is $479. In addition, Savage Arms also expanded its lineup of bolt-action B Series rimfire rifles for 2020, and a similarly stocked BNS-SR model B Series .22 Long Rifle option is also available.
