Savage Arms announces the introduction of the Backcountry Xtreme series of bolt-action hunting rifles: a dynamic new series of performance-driven rifles designed for the most rugged and demanding hunts, purpose-built to define the top tier of the 110 hunting line. Though each is unique, they all embody the most functional refinements Savage builds into its bolt action designs.
« The Model 110 has been evolving for more than six decades,» said Jessica Treglia, Sr. Brand Manager at Savage Arms.
« That’s longer than any other bolt-action rifle in production. The new Backcountry Xtreme Series is building on this legacy. These rifles mark the apex of the 110’s incredible journey. These rifles are more capable than any 110’s we’ve ever built. They feature protective finishes, innovative product features, and the best of our patented technologies. These rifles have premium features added and can do it all. The Backcountry Xtreme Series shows what it means to be Savage.»
The extras that define the Backcountry Xtreme series are all built on the tested foundations that make the 110 so successful. The AccuTrigger system allows users to manually set pull weights as low as 1.5 pounds (680 grams). The AccuStock system provides the receiver with the solid bedding needed for repeat accuracy, and the AccuFit allows for a tailored fit without the need of a gunsmith.
