NRA Gun of the Week: Savage Model 42 Takedown Rifle/Shotgun

Savage Arms brought out the Model 42, a gun that, like the Model 24, combines the utility of .22 –cal. rifle and .410-bore shotgun, but with a composite stock and fore-end at an economical price. For 2016 the company extended that line to include a takedown model. Learn more about it in this latest edition of NRA's Gun of the Week series, hosted by American Rifleman's Christopher Olsen.
