After years of waiting...Savage has finally produced the upgraded version of the Savage 210...in 20ga...The Savage 220!!
Model 220 Bolt-Action Slug Gun
Suffield, CT â€“ Savage Arms is proud to introduce the new Model 220 Bolt-Action Slug Gun, which provides hunters rifle-like accuracy in a 20 gauge bolt-action platform while adding a new level of sophistication and technology to Savageâ€™s Slug Gun Series.
The 220â€™s accuracy should be no surprise because itâ€™s not built like a shotgun, but rather like a Savage Rifle. â€śThe 20 gauge chambering allows us to build the gun on a Model 110 receiver,â€ť Said Savage CEO Ron Coburn. â€śThis provides many advantages over a traditional shotgun with rifled barrel. On of the most noticeable, of course, is the inclusion of the AccuTrigger.â€ť
Built on a Savage 110 receiver, the Model 220 features the revolutionary AccuTrigger, three-position rear-tang safety, detachable box magazine and a durable synthetic stock. Meanwhile the 20 ga. chambering packs plenty of punch for harvesting game in â€śslug onlyâ€ť areas, while reducing felt-recoil significantly compared to similar 12 gauge chamberings.
The Model 220 will be available in Black Synthetic with a MSRP of $505 and Realtree Hardwoods HD with an MSRP of $555.
Sounds like a pretty cool gun. Not in the market for a slug gun now (I love my 870) but something to consider in the future.
How do the 20's compare to the 12's in energy down range and drop in inches?
don't worry I'll be buying one
I just though..." great just what i need another slug gun".don't worry I'll be buying one
The act of killing is visceral .......
I have been waiting for the 220. Any idea when they will be out ? I will be getting one.
