After nearly 39 years at the National Rifle Association, Editorial Director John Zent retired in April 2021.
On this week’s “Gun of the Week” video preview, American Rifleman staff check out an American-made straight-pull rifle from Savage Arms.
If you know Savage Arms and its history, you’ll understand that the legacy brand is known for ditching the status quo in favor of “hot-shot” engineering. A famed design of the 1960s has lead the company in a direction that now positions itself to provide the American market with an action design the likes of which have never been seen before—the Impulse.
The .300 HAM’R from Wilson Combat is a highly capable cartridge for hunting or home defense, and it’s available in a new version of the company’s Protector Series AR perfect for left-out lefties.
Can the Savage Impulse change our minds about straight-pull rifles? It's a big hill to climb, but this new-for-2021 launch certainly seems like a contender.
Savage Arms announced its Backcountry Xtreme Series, a lineup of bolt-action rifles that are built to be rugged and offer best-in-class performance right out of the box.
