NRA Gun of the Week: Savage Arms 11/111 Hog Hunter Rifle

by
posted on October 17, 2015
More than 5 million wild pigs populate nearly 40 states, creating billions of dollars of damage each year. Rampant reproduction and vast ranges make management a difficult task. Savage Arms saw an opportunity to capitalize on a growing market, and added a pig-specific rifle to its product line. The Model 11/111 Hog Hunter stems from the ubiquitous Model 110 rifle action that has made Savage so popular. The Hog Hunter features a 20” medium-contour barrel that is screwed to the action in typical Savage fashion. The barrel’s business end is threaded and ready for use with various muzzle devices. The barrel is topped by LPA adjustable iron sights, and the receiver is drilled and tapped for optical sight bases. An extended bolt handle and enlarged bolt knob facilitate lightning fast operation—an appreciated trait when faced with 300 lbs. of angry bacon. A green composite stock lightens the weight to a very manageable 7.25 lbs., unscoped. For more information on the Savage Model 11/111 Hog Hunter, visit savagearms.com.
