Inside the Renegauge is Savage Arms’ patented Dual Regulating Inline Valve (D.R.I.V.) gas system. The system results in consistent operation while lessening recoil, which translates to shot-to-shot consistency shotgunners require, especially hardened waterfowlers. The system helps keep the action cleaner and cooler. Melonite treating and chrome plating further mitigate corrosion.
Savage provides a synthetic stock with its Renegauge that includes a buffer system for recoil management. Also included to combat recoil is a removable cheekpiece and ultra-soft recoil pad consisting of a gel-like material. Our testing has proven the material to effectively dampen recoil transfer to the shooter. Savage supplies stock spacers to adjust length of pull, as well, various-height cheekpieces are available. Drop and cast adjustment shims come standard.
The Renegauge 12-ga. shotgun comes with an aluminum receiver, 24”, 26” and 28” barrel options depending on model. The Renegauge Waterfowl model provided for testing purposes is supplied with a 28” carbon steel barrel, which has been fluted and threaded for Benelli/Beretta-style choke tubes. Savage ships its Renegauge with a hard-sided case.
