About Product

Savage engineers’ showed remarkable ingenuity in shaving away every possible ounce—without sacrificing any of the company’s legendary accuracy and reliability. As a result, this svelte new addition to Savage’s purpose-driven Specialty Series weighs in at less than six pounds, more than a full pound lighter than typical deer rifles. Designers also borrowed the lightweight magazine and framework from Savage’s renowned Trophy Hunter Series, replacing the standard heavy metal components found inside many heftier hunting rifles with a bulletproof base pad and rigid cross-bracing system crafted from light but extremely durable polymer. Such a notable reduction in mass was realized by making a number of smart adjustments, including machining out the receiver, fluting the bolt in a fine spiral fashion, and capping the stock with a 20-inch, light-contour barrel. Zero-tolerance headspace, achieved by carefully matching barrel, action and bolt, further fuels world-class accuracy. The 16/116 Lightweight Hunter also offers Savage’s trademark, user-adjustable AccuTrigger system, which lets shooters tailor trigger pull to personal taste. Compact, lightweight design. User-adjustable AccuTrigger. Black synthetic stock. Stainless steel barrel.
