With its Impulse action, Savage Arms is hoping to change the game for the straight-pull rifle in the United States, which hasn't been a significant adopter of such concepts, unlike Europe. Savage launched its Impulse with a number of hunting-oriented options, and now, the company is expanding the Impulse action into the precision-shooting world with the creation of the Impulse Elite Precision.

In this new system, Savage married its Impulse 110 rifle action with a long, button-rifled barrel in a modified Palma contour, and the entire barreled assembly sits inside an Adjustable Core Competition rifle chassis from Modular Driven Technologies. This new system provides a single piece chassis complete with an adjustable stock that can be fine-tuned for length-of-pull and comb height. The stock also features an ARCA rail fore-end with M-Lok attachment slots on either side.

The Savage Arms Impulse Elite Precision is built with an aluminum receiver treated with a matte-black finish and topped by a 20-m.o.a. Picatinny optics rail. Each Impulse is equipped with a multi-position bolt handle that can be moved to either side for left- or right-handed use. Topping the barrel is a 5/8-24 TPI threaded muzzle and muzzle brake, and each rifle comes with the adjustable Savage AccuTrigger, which can be set anywhere from 1.5 to 4 lbs.

Barrel lengths in the new Elite Precision lineup range from 26" to 30", depending on caliber, and the gun is available in 6 mm Creedmoor, 6.5 PRC, 6.5 Creedmoor, .338 Lapua Mag., .300 Win. Mag., 300 PRC and .308 Win. The suggested retail price on the new gun is $2,619. For more information, visit

The Rifleman Report: From The ''Inside Out''

The term “inside out” can be taken literally or applied as a phrase to describe the thoroughness with which an idea is understood. In this month’s issue, we hope to illustrate that the latter especially is used as a guiding principle to keep the American firearm industry at the top of its game.
