Created in 1894 by Arthur Savage, Savage Arms specializes in manufacturing innovative and accurate firearms. The company also sells gear, apparel and magazines related to guns.
Savage Arms manufactures firearms used for big- and small-game hunting, varmint hunting, predator hunting, competition shooting, and tactical or law enforcement purposes. The company created the synthetic stock, inexpensive AccuStock gun in 2009, which engages shooting action three-dimensionally along the entire length of the rifle. This innovative firearm reflects the overall work of the company. Other innovative technologies created by Savage Arms include the Button Rifled Barrels, Floating Bolt Head and Headspace Control, all created to make shooting more accurate and safe. The company website provides manuals for nearly all models of manufactured firearms to assist users in safe, responsible gun use.
The Savage Arms website offers a customizable Gun Finder section where customers can select the caliber, purpose, magazine and handedness of the gun they desire. The website lists the firearms that match the chosen criteria, along with the gun's suggested retail price, model number and picture. The company also offers its Savage Outdoors, a film series that details big-game hunting expeditions from start to finish. Savage Arms' firearms are sold in domestic and international retailers and product catalogs are available online.
