Savage Arms is a manufacturer of firearms in the United States with facilities located in Canada. Its headquarters are in Westfield, Massachusetts. A wide selection of rimfire and centerfire rifles, as well as Stevens single-shot rifles and shotguns, are among the products that Savage manufactures. Both the Model 99 lever-action rifle, which is no longer manufactured, and the .300 Savage caliber are responsible for the majority of the company’s fame.
Prior to its separation from Vista Outdoor in 2019, Savage operated as a subsidiary of the parent company.

The History of Savage Rifles
Arthur Savage established Savage Arms in the year 1894 in the city of Utica, New York.
The Model 1895 was the first hammerless lever-action rifle to be produced by Savage. It was based on Arthur Savage’s Model 1892 rifle, which he had designed for Colt in an unsuccessful bid for a contract to supply rifles to the United States Army.
The Savage Models 1907, 1915, and 1917 were all .32 and .380 caliber pocket pistols that were marketed by the company and were based on the same patents as the company’s original .45 caliber prototype.
During World War I, Savage amalgamated with the Driggs-Seabury Ordnance Company and began manufacturing Lewis machine guns. During World War I, Savage was also responsible for producing Model 1899 muskets for the Montreal Home Guard.
Savage bought Stevens Arms in Chicopee, Massachusetts, in 1920. 1929 saw Savage’s acquisition of the A.H. Fox Gun company, based in Philadelphia, and the subsequent relocation of production to Utica.
In 1939, Savage created the Model 24 combination gun, which eventually sold over a million copies despite having a configuration that was uncommon in the United States. Savage was one of the few American manufacturers of cheap double-barrel shotguns, such as the Fox Sterlingworth, Fox Model B, and Stevens Model 311.
During World War II, Savage once again became involved in the production of heavy munitions.
After the war, the company manufactured pump shotguns such as the model 67 and model 69, as well as the model 69N stainless steel tactical pump shotgun.
Accurate, user-adjustable, factory-installed triggers were first made available for purchase by the firm under the brand name AccuTrigger in the year 2002. Savage debuted their AccuStock, an aluminum stock with an incorporated rail system, in the year 2009 as a means to further improve both the stability and accuracy of the action.
In 2003, the Shooting Industry Academy of Excellence recognized Savage as the most outstanding manufacturer in the industry.
In the “Best of the Best” competition that was held by Shooting Times, Sporting Gun, and Shooting Gazette magazines, the Savage 93R17 BTVS was chosen as the winner of the “Best New Rifle” category inn 2007.
In 2013, Vista Outdoor made the announcement that it will be purchasing Savage for $315 million.
As of July 2018, Vista Outdoor tried to sell Savage Arms as a part of a bigger effort to restructure the company and in 2019, Vista Outdoor successfully completed the sale of Savage Arms and Stevens Arms to a group of investors led by Savage’s management.

Unique Features of Savage Rifles
Rifles and shotguns made by Savage are accurate, reliable, and full of new features that make them perform well.
The Savage Arms company has been known for a long time to make rifles that are very accurate and don’t cost too much. If “accuracy” at 100 yards means putting 5 rounds together so that they touch, then Savage might be a good “cheap” choice.
Savage Arms has made a name for itself as one of the most respected gun companies in the U.S. by making guns that also last a long time, and don’t cost too much.

Caring for Your Savage Rifles
Firstly, make sure that you follow any specific instructions set out in your model of Savage Rifle’s instruction manual. If you don’t have a hard copy of the manual, you can download a digital copy from the dedicated Savage homepage.
To clean your Savage rifle, use the following basic cleaning equipment and follow these instructions.
A proper size cleaning rod with bore brushes (fiber and brass) and a tip into which a cloth patch can be put, patches, powder solvent, lubricant, small lint-free cloths, and a toothbrush.
Insert the rod from the barrel’s chamber end and push firmly until the patch or brush emerges from the muzzle. When using a brush or patch, do not reverse the rod. Don’t use solvent or oil-soaked patches or brushes.
Cleaning instructions:
Push-pull a solvent-wetted patch through the bore several times.
Run a solvent-wetted brush the full length of the bore several times to completely remove all foreign matter from the bore and chamber.
Dry the bore with clean patches and complete by dry patch wiping of the bore and chamber.
Remove firing residue and dust from all surfaces inside the receiver with a clean, solvent-wetted patch.
Dislodge caked dirt from the bolt assembly and surfaces inside the receiver with a solvent-wetted toothbrush and then remove the solvent with cleaning patches or cloth.
Wipe the whole rifle with a very light coat of oil and reassemble it. Finally, make sure that it is stored safely and properly in a wall-mounted or similar safe.
