The Definition of Accuracy. Savage Arms was founded in 1894 by Arthur Savage, who subsequently
introduced us to the world's first hammerless lever action rifle. It was a design that Savage had originally engineered for Colt, but in 1892 failed to win out as the U.S. military's next infantry rifle, which had instead been awarded to the short lived Krag-Jorgensen rifle.

With refinements to the design, the Savage hammerless lever would soon evolve into the venerable Model 99-- one of the most celebrated and successful hunting rifles in history, enjoying a production run of over a century. Several years later, Savage would also be a contender for another big military contract as the company was named one of the top two finalists in the U.S. Army trials for a .45 caliber semi-automatic handgun.

In the end, Savage lost out, this time ironically to his former employer Colt, and pistol designed by John Moses Browning-- the M1911. By 1920, Savage purchased the J. Stevens Company, which was associated with famous barrel maker Harry Pope.

This would lay the foundation for the company's excellent reputation for building extremely accurate rifles. Pope's barrels were legendary for their performance on the target range, as it was understood that if you wanted to win competitions, his barrels were the ones to beat.

Over the next several decades, the company grew to the largest firearms company in the free world, went to war in the 1940s-- becoming the largest single source supplier of Enfield rifles to the British Empire-- only to fall on hard times and eventually declare bankruptcy in the late 1980s.

In 1995, the company returned to prominence as private ownership and guidance from Smith & Wesson's former Director of Engineering-- now company Chairman / CEO Ron Coburn-- lead Savage to re-establish itself as one of the most technologically innovative and advanced rifle company's in the modern era.

At the heart of the Model 110 design is the simple yet ingenious Savage AccuTrigger system. For the the vast majority of shooters, a lighter trigger pull equates to greater accuracy. The pull weight of this rifle is user adjustable from 1.5 to 6 pounds without the fear of it going off if dropped or bumped.

At the center of the AccuTrigger mechanism lies the AccuRelease, which is a thin blade that rides within the main trigger to prevent the sear from releasing unless held all the way rearward. It only requires a pound of pressure to move the AccuRelease to the rear, where the finger then engages the trigger. The pull weight can be adjusted with a tool provided with the rifle.

In 1957, Savage designer and engineer Nicholas Brewer created the technology which made it possible for the company to manufacturer an incredibly accurate rifle at an affordable price. His push feed, dual-opposed lug action featured a rotating extractor with an enclosed bolt face.

The use of a separated bolt had had never been tried on a commercial rifle before, which essentially made the lugs self-lapping, resulting in greater accuracy without added machining. When combined with another of his inventions-- a barrel headspaced by a big locking nut and then threaded to the receiver-- the result was a rifle capable of easily blowing away the competition when durability, affordability and accuracy were factored into the equation.

One of the critical features of Brewer's design, which made modern Savage rifles like the Model 110 possible, was headspace. Most factory's simply chamber ream a barrel, then use a predetermined distance to fit that barrel to the action.

The technician takes the bolt, uses both a minimum and maximum headspace gauge, and if the fit falls somewhere in between acceptable limits, the rifle is deemed good to go. So unless by chance, every part just happens to be at exactly the right measurement for a perfect fit, there will always be a certain degree of compromise. This is why some production rifles shoot better than others, while many will not hold consistent groups at all.

At Savage, they use a combination of precision machining and custom fitting to keep headspace to a minimum on every rifle. When the barrel is mated to the action, a technician uses the minimum headspace gauge to seat the barrel against the bolt face perfectly.

From here, technology is employed that amazingly Savage pioneered almost 60- years ago to precisely set the barrel using its integral nut, locking everything solidly into place. This is essentially custom headspacing and fitting for each rifle, which ensures the perfect specs for individual caliber and action combinations.

The Savage Model 110 is equipped with a four round detachable magazine. In the case of this being a package gun, a factory mounted and boresighted Vortex Crossfire II 3-9x40mm scope.

Tight tolerances and high quality controls are critical if you want repeatable accuracy, so Savage uses button rifling on its 20" free-floated barrel. This careful system methodically cuts rifling into a barrel, ensuring consistent rates of twist and bore diameter, offering less distortion as the barrel heats up.

In fact, the technology is so advanced and of such high quality that barrels are still being manufactured today on machines Savage built as far back as the '50s and 60's. Each barrel is then carefully straightened by a gunsmith with years of experience.

Another highly skilled gunsmith completes the assembly of the trigger group, and then preforms a final inspection of the rifle. Upon completion, each rifle is fired with proof loads to ensure ultimate quality control.

Through tedious and meticulous, Savage is able to deliver a highly accurate rifle that will deliver decades of reliable service in the field at an affordable price. For service and repair, the Model 110 rifle is backed by a 1- year warranty, where the Vortex Crossfire II is backed by a lifetime warranty .
