Savage Arms added two new rifles to its lineup in 2022, both in the company's semi-automatic A series and both guns chambered in .17 Winchester Super Magnum (WSM), a new cartridge offering from Savage.

“Savage has seen outstanding performance from the 17 WSM cartridge and felt it could be optimized in new platforms,” said Jessica Treglia, Sr. Brand Manager at Savage Arms. “The A Series rifles have a delayed blowback design that accommodates this caliber with limited modifications, making it an ideal action for the WSM cartridge."

The first new model from Savage chambered for the .17 WSM is the A17 WSM Sporter, which features a gray wood-laminate stock and a 22" button-rifled barrel mated to a case-hardened receiver. Also available is the A17 WSM Target, which features a thumbhole-style stock also crafted from gray wood laminate and featuring a 22" fluted heavy barrel and case-hardened receiver.

Each rifle in the Savage Arms A17 WSM lineup operates using a delayed-blowback action and features a chrome bolt complete with an oversized bolt handle. Both models are also equipped with Savage's crisp, user-adjustable AccuTrigger, and the gun feed from eight-round rotary magazines. Suggested retail pricing for the A17 WSM Sporter is $619, while the heavy-barrelled Target model retails for $709. For more information, visit savagearms.com.
