First Look: Savage Arms MSR 15 Blackout

posted on May 4, 2018

Savage Arms has introduced its new MSR 15 Blackout, an extension of the MSR line that the company introduced last year. Chambered in .300 Blackout, the configuration uses a pistol-length gas system, allowing users to utilize suppressors and reliably cycle subsonic ammunition without adding length and weight; it has an overall length of 29.475 inches and weighs 6.14 pounds. Its 10.5-inch melonite QPQ coated barrel’s 5R button rifling provides accuracy and maneuverability, and a full suite of accessory upgrades make the MSR 15 Blackout easy and comfortable to shoot.

Additional features include:
• Custom-forged lower receiver
• KAK Shockwave Brace
• Savage helical flash hider
• 5/8-24 threaded barrel
• Hogue 
pistol grip
• Free-float handguard with M-LOK
• Magpul MBUS flip-up front and rear sights

The MSR 15 Blackout ships with a 30-round Magpul PMag and has an MSRP of $1,099.
