New for 2019: Savage Arms Model 110 High Country

posted on February 19, 2019

Savage Arms continues to set the standard for affordable bolt-action rifles with its extensive Model 110 line. This year, the company introduces the Model 110 High Country, which comes with a TrueTimber Strata camo-covered stock with overmolded grip surfaces and a coyote brown PVD finish on the barreled action. Both the sporter-profile barrel and bolt feature stylish spiral fluting, and the barrel is threaded and capped should you opt to add a muzzle device to this rifle.

The 110 High Country is available in 11 different calibers ranging from .243 Winchester to the .300 WSM and Winchester Magnums, and there are several popular western caliber offerings including the .280 Ackley and the flat-shooting 6.5 PRC.

Like other Model 110 rifles, the new High Country comes equipped with an adjustable bladed AccuTrigger, an AccuStock with a built-in aluminum chassis, and the new AccuFit system that allows the shooter to quickly and easily customize the rifle for length of pull and comb height. These features, along with Savage’s barrel nut design which provides exact headspace control, makes this rifle extremely accurate.

The rounded receiver is drilled and tapped for mounting an optic, and the three-position tang-mounted safety is conveniently located. Barrel lengths range from 22 to 24 inches, and weights vary from 8.1 to 8.5 pounds (depending on chambering), making this a rifle that’s ideally-suited for long-range shots in open country.

The 110 High Country’s 8-pound weight and customizable stock do an excellent job managing setback, so even in magnum calibers, it’s comfortable to shoot. In addition to the AccuFit stock’s flexibility soft touch surfaces on the pistol grip and grooved forearm add additional comfort when shooting. The rifle’s 2 to 4 micron-thick coating protects from the elements while still allowing for tight tolerances, and the durable synthetic stock is impervious to moisture.

With a price just north of $1,000, it’s hard to call this a “budget” rifle, but based on the Model 110’s proven performance record and a long list of added features, this rifle still offers a lot for the money. It shoots well, looks good and it’ll handle anything Mother Nature can dish out, making it one of the best new hunting rifles for 2019.

The new Model 110 High Country has an MSRP of $1,129. For more information, visit
