New Release: Savage RENEGAUGE Semi-Auto Shotgun

Savage Arms just launched their very first semi-auto shotgun, the Savage RENEGAUGE.

Savage says that the all-new American-made shotgun was designed for field conditions while still offering features that competitive shooters desire.

The Field and Waterfowl models feature a 28-inch fluted barrel while two models aimed at turkey hunters feature a 24-inch fluted barrel. All four models accept Beretta/Benelli pattern chokes, the 28-inch models will ship with 3 chokes and 24-inch models will ship with 4.

Another welcome feature of the RENEGAUGE is oversized controls that are easy to use when time is a factor or you are wearing gloves.

If you are looking for a new hunting shotgun, you will be pleased to learn that Savage is offering three Mossy Oak camo patterns. Turkey hunters will have the choice of either Mossy Oak Obsession or Mossy Oak Bottomland, waterfowl hunters can either choose the Mossy Oak Shadow Grass Blades camo or just opt for the classic black finish.

The all-new Savage RENEGAUGE isn't like most of the recoil-operated shotguns introduced over the last several years. Instead Savage has patented their own D.R.I.V. gas system which they claim will vent any excess gas before it drives the bolt.

The new Savage RENEGAUGE semi-auto shotgun will carry an MSRP starting at $1,449, add $100 if you are after one of the models with a camouflage finish.

Savage Arms, makers of the most trusted hunting and target rifles in the United States, is proud to introduce RENEGAUGE. The new American-made semiautomatic 12 gauge shotguns are built for field use, offer hunters and competitors a new standard for both fit and function, and include several patented parts and designs—including the Dual Regulating Inline Valve (D.R.I.V.) gas system.

“RENEGAUGE is unlike any other semi-automatic shotgun, and demonstrates our commitment to innovate as an independent company,” said Al Kasper, President and CEO. “This project has been in the works for years because we wanted to enter a new category in a big way. The team in place now did an amazing job getting this to the finish line. Hunters and shooters are going to be amazed with the fit, feel, function and versatility of this shotgun. And it’s a platform we can and will build on—so look for more in the very near future.”

RENEGAUGE has been tested to the extreme—both in the field and in the lab. Everything in the design is intentional and has a purpose. RENEGAUGE looks different because it is—and it brings American-made performance to a new level. The shotgun functions and cycles light loads and magnum field loads with unbelievable consistency and reliability. Avid wing shooters will love the way it swings, competitors will find it at home on the range, and hunters will trust it in the nastiest of conditions.

The D.R.I.V. system provides RENEGAGUE with the unparalleled ability to regulate the gas that cycles the shotgun’s action. Both low-brass target shells and Magnum hunting shells will cycle the action with the same reliability and without any adjustment from the shooter.

This functionality is complimented by how easy RENEGAUGE is to fit to the shooter. From comb height to length of pull, RENEGAUGE can be adjusted to ensure every aspect of its ergonomics matches its user’s needs.


  • D.R.I.V. gas system 
  • Adjustable stock for length of pull, comb height, drop and cast 
  • One-piece, chrome plated action bar assembly 
  • Chrome plated reciprocating components 
  • Stock rod buffer to reduce felt recoil 
  • Fluted barrel with melonite finish 
  • Carbon steel ventilated rib with red fiberoptic sight 
  • Competition-ready easy loading magazine port 
  • Oversized controls 
  • 3 interchangeable flush mount choke tubes (Beretta/Benelli) – IC, M, F 
  • Hard-sided carrying case
