Highlights From Savage: AccuFit and Left Handed Models

By Jacki Billings

Savage has been a busy bee, debuting well over 20 new products at SHOT Show this week, including the company’s pride and joy, the AccuFit system.

As seen on Savage’s Model 110 platform, the AccuFit setup utilizes interchangeable components, with a customized length of pull and comb height. Normally an undertaking best suited for a custom shop or gunsmith, Savage takes the tweaking away from the shop and puts it into the hands of consumers prepped with a Phillps-head screwdriver.

Relying on just a few screws, Savage AccuFit owners can swap out risers and inserts to adjust the length of pull in 1/4-inch increments. Comb height, on the other hand, can be increased or decreased in 1/8-inch increments. In essence, the system gives greater flexibility to shooters who need a more custom feel to their rifle; but don’t want to pay custom rifle prices. Though Savage doesn’t necessarily advertise the AccuFit as a grow-with-me system, Savage reps loosely hinted that it’s an unadvertised perk of the system. Buy a gun for a kid or teen and adjust the rifle as he or she grows. Savage2

The AccuFit seems like an all-in-one solution for hunters who don’t want to spring for more rifles than necessary. We watched at range day as the system was demonstrated and it seems a tad time-consuming. All that unscrewing and swapping is definitely not designed for impatient people, but if you’re willing to sacrifice some time to save some bucks then the AccuFit looks like a decent option. The AccuFit equipped Model 110s start at $749.

While Savage is making a hard push for the AccuFit, the company hasn’t ignored its Southpaw contingency. Walking around the booth we spotted a few lefty friendly variants on popular Savage rifle series. Savage reps confirmed that we weren’t imagining things and that the gun maker has made a real push to deliver more left-handed rifles to consumers.

Savage says it’s not only targeting true lefties but also cross eye dominant shooters aka the true mutants of the shooting world (of course we kid…sorta). The rifles come in a variety of calibers to suit whatever whim you’re feeling, including 338 Lapua Mag., 300 Win. Mag. 6.5 Creedmoor, 308 Win. and 223 Rem, 6mm Creedmoor, and a bevy of others.

Savage also notes that the Model 110 Storm AccuFit system is also available to left-handed/eyed shooters, giving them the same adjustable civil rights as righties.

Prices are all over the place depending on model and caliber but at the base level, the B series left-handed variants come in under $300, with the AccuFit closer to $750.
