NRA Gun Of The Week: Savage 110 Magpul Hunter

posted on July 15, 2022

Pairing Savage Arms designs with Magpul polymer has created a comfortable 21st century platform that hunters can get behind in ways never before possible from a Savage factory offering. With the 110 Magpul Hunter, you’ll receive Savage’s legendary action, blueprinted for concentricity and solid lockup, which makes for a sub-moa-capable platform that is offered in short-action chamberings such as .308 Winchester and the popular 6.5 Creedmoor. Watch the video above to see the Savage 110 Magpul Hunter in use on the range.

Though the 110 Magpul Hunter is designed and marketed to the hunting crowd, its myriad factory features are great for tactical and long-range use, in addition to field use. Atop the Cerakote Gray carbon steel receiver is a one-piece Picatinny rail for optics mounting. In addition, Savage includes a 20-MOA cant built into the rail section for those distant targets that tend to stretch an optic’s ability to handle the necessary elevation dialing. Key Savage ingredients are included here, such as the famed AccuTrigger with blade-in-bow safety. The user-adjustable trigger also has an impressive adjustment range that, at the low end of 1 lb., 8 ozs., allows for precise target work. The top end of the adjustment ends at about 4 lbs., and is a boon to hunters facing a target of a lifetime.

In typical Savage fashion, there’s the included tang-mounted safety selector with three positions. In its rear position, the action is locked up. In its middle position, the trigger is still blocked while allowing the user to safely open the action to unload or inspect. The forward-most position, revealing a red dot, makes the gun ready to fire. The serrated selector is tactile, intuitive and loved by Savage aficionados.

Our time on the range with the Savage 110 Magpul Hunter proved the gun’s ability to match a shooters shape by way of length of pull adjustments. The stock’s contours add further versatility to the package, positioning the rifle solidly while allowing for creature comforts, such as a comfy recoil pad, replaceable comb and M-Lok slots for accessories. A large tactical bolt knob, detachable AICS-pattern magazine and threaded muzzle lend further utility and versatility. Add the fact that it comes in right- and left-hand actions, and the 110 Magpul Hunter from Savage Arms deserves strong consideration.
