Savage Arms has announced the addition of .17 Winchester Super Magnum (WSM) to its line of A Series rifles. The new A17 WSM Sporter and A17 WSM Target Thumbhole pair the dynamic rimfire cartridge with Savage’s A Series semiautomatic action.

“Savage has seen outstanding performance from the 17 WSM cartridge and felt it could be optimized in new platforms,” Jessica Treglia, Sr. brand manager at Savage Arms said. “The A Series rifles have a delayed blowback design that accommodates this caliber with limited modifications, making it an ideal action for the WSM cartridge.

“We are launching the A17 chambered for 17 WSM in two of our more popular configurations,” Treglia added. “Both are designed for target shooting and varmint hunting applications and have rigid laminate stocks. Both the Target Thumbhole and Sporter run from Savage’s eight-round rotary magazine.”

Both the A17 WSM Sporter and A17 WSM Target Thumbhole have 22-inch button-rifled barrels and include the user-adjustable AccuTrigger. Bolts are hard-chromed, with oversized bolt handles, case hardened receivers, eight-round rotary magazines and gray wood laminate stocks.
