On The Range: Savage Arms Stance

posted on January 17, 2022

Watch our American Rifleman range video above to see the new Savage Arms Stance in action.

Savage Arms made it known several years ago that it planned to be a well-rounded firearm manufacturer with product lines in every major segment of the market, a step it took with the introduction of the Renegauge several years ago. Now, the company is officially back in the handgun market with the Stance, a purpose-built subcompact pistol chambered in 9 mm Luger.

The Stance is built around a stainless-steel, serialized chassis paired with a well-textured polymer grip frame and a lightened slide with generous serrations fore and aft. The model we received included a highly visible pair of tritium-illuminated night sights, as well as bilateral manual-safety levers, magazine-release buttons and slide-stop levers. Savage also produces a model of the Stance without a manual safety.

Interchangeable backstraps are included with the gun and are held into the grip frame by way of a single roll pin, making it easy to change out the backstraps for different hand sizes. The gun is built with a stainless-steel barrel measuring 3.2" long, and the grip angle is designed with an 18-degree angle that offers a natural point of aim.

Each Savage Arms Stance ships with two magazines, one seven-round, flush-fit model and an extended eight-round model. Additionally, the company offers an even-greater capacity 10-round box magazine, too. Suggested retail prices on the Stance range from $479 to $561, depending on the options selected.
