What does it mean when a gun is deemed a "women's rifle?" For some it simply means cutting down the length and painting it pink, but Savage's new Lady Hunter rifle challenges that tendency, offering performance and durability in an attractive, lightweight package. Savage achieved a lighter, shorter barrel by removing weight from the forend, and included a higher comb to better suit women's necks.
