Savage Arms announced the release of a new over and under shotgun called the 555. The shotguns were first shown at the 2014 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits, and are now part of the company’s line-up.
The shotguns can be had in 12- and 20-gauge, and will accept both 2 3/4″ and 3″ shells. Aluminum receivers are used to keep the guns relatively light. Savage states the receivers are “scaled to gauge.” The 20-gauge model weighs 5.5 pounds while the 12-gauge model comes in at 6 pounds.
MSRP is $692 for both models.
From Savage Arms:
Stevens has dovetailed performance and value in its new 555 over-and-under shotgun. Its light aluminum receiver is scaled to gauge and incorporates a steel insert that reinforces the breech, minimizing weight and maximizing strength. The fast-handling 555 also features a Turkish walnut stock and forend, shell extractors, a manual safety, and a single, selective mechanical trigger—at a price that’s unmatched among comparable over-and-unders. Five interchangeable choke tubes allow the 555 to meet any shooting need.
