Savage Arms really shook up its product lineup in 2003 and again in 2009 with the introductions of the AccuTrigger and AccuStock systems, respectively, and the company is revamping its bolt-action line again in 2018 with the unveiling of nine models featuring the new AccuFit synthetic stock design. Utilizing a series of spacers and risers held in place by the rifle’s soft rubber buttpad, AccuFit allows shooters to customize the gun’s length of pull and comb height quickly and easily with only a Phillips head screwdriver. The company’s AccuFit-clad offerings run the gamut from compact Scout (shown) and Wolverine variants to long-barreled Varmint and Long Range Hunter models—all of which benefit from the company’s AccuTrigger and AccuStock upgrades. savagearms.com
