NRA Gun of the Week: Savage Arms Renegauge Waterfowl

posted on August 28, 2020
Savage Arms came to market in 2020 with an American-made shotgun and caught the attention of the industry. Brand loyalists who have come to know Savage for its accurate and affordable rifles now have a product that opens the doors to new adventures and opportunities. The Savage Arms Renegauge is a 12-gauge semi-automatic that is host to patented features, from its operated system to creature comforts. The Renegauge is built to deliver consistency through the harshest conditions.

Inside the Renegauge is Savage Arms’ patented Dual Regulating Inline Valve (D.R.I.V.) gas system. The system results in consistent operation while lessening recoil, which translates to shot-to-shot consistency shotgunners require, especially hardened waterfowlers. The system helps keep the action cleaner and cooler. Melonite treating and chrome plating further mitigate corrosion.

Savage provides a synthetic stock with its Renegauge that includes a buffer system for recoil management. Also included to combat recoil is a removable cheekpiece and ultra-soft recoil pad consisting of a gel-like material. Our testing has proven the material to effectively dampen recoil transfer to the shooter. Savage supplies stock spacers to adjust length of pull, as well, various-height cheekpieces are available. Drop and cast adjustment shims come standard.

The Renegauge 12-ga. shotgun comes with an aluminum receiver, 24”, 26” and 28” barrel options depending on model. The Renegauge Waterfowl model provided for testing purposes is supplied with a 28” carbon steel barrel, which has been fluted and threaded for Benelli/Beretta-style choke tubes. Savage ships its Renegauge with a hard-sided case.
