UPDATE: Savage Arms Model 10 GRS with that Norwegian Stock

Model 10 GRS

We touched on this brand new model by Savage Arms while we were out at SHOT Show this winter. At the time, even the on-hand Savage Arms reps did not have much information for us. Although, they were kind enough to let us play with it.

Several months later, we now have further product specs on the Model 10 GRS, and greater details on the intriguing stock which is the centerpiece of this new rifle.

  • GRS Adjustable Stock made of 15% Fiberglass-Reinforced Durethan
  • User-Adjustable Savage AccuTrigger
  • Slim Grip & Fore-End w/ Textured Rubber Grip Surfaces
  • Adjustable Length-of-Pull from 33.5 – 36.5 cm (13.18″ – 14.37″)
  • 5/8″-24 TPI Threaded Muzzle
  • Fluted Heavy Barrel
  • 10-Round AICS-compatible Magazine
  • Flush Cup Sling Loops included & Sling Mount for Bi-Pod use installed

Model 10 GRS

The rifle is currently offered in the two most popular and common long-range calibers on the market: .308 Winchester and 6.5 Creedmoor. The stock is from a little-known company out of Norway and this rifle is the first to house it for Savage Arms.

The Model 10 GRS houses the full suite of accuracy-enhancing Savage features firmly within a GRS stock made of 15 percent fiberglass-reinforced Durethan, with 65 percent glass bedding material. The rock-stable stock’s slimmed down dimensions and textured surfaces provide a better grip in wet conditions, while its length-of-pull can be adjusted to fit any shooter. Plus, its Savage action, precise button rifling, fluted heavy barrel and user-adjustable AccuTrigger deliver the accuracy of custom rifles at a fraction of the price.

Right now, the 6.5 Creedmoor comes in a 24″ barrel while the .308 Winchester is offered in a 20″ configuration. Both rifles can be yours for $1,449 which is $50 lower than the MSRP we were quoted at SHOT Show. Woo-Hoo! Extra ammo money! 





The outdoors, fitness and anything related to firearms are my passions. I am a S&W Armorer, Glock Armorer, reloader and am coping with an addiction to classic S&W and Colt revolvers (by buying more revolvers). I’ve been a guest writer for Sierra Bullets and love long walks to the gun range.

    The 308 one would be fun to smack the steel plates at my local range with…

    I like it, when I see stuff like this I keep almost regretting my hog hunter Boyd’s stock psudo precision rifle I assembled but then I remember how cheap the whole rig was to put together

    But why glass bed it? Aluminum bedding is at least as good and probably cheaper to do at this scale

  • Mike N.

    A fellow shooter I know has a GRS X-Eater and it has the nicest buttplate and adj. cheekpiece mechanism I’ve ever used. This looks to use the same mechanism.

    I guess I’m a Savage partisan (having owned 4 in the past) but I’d rather get this over an RPR.

  • DrewN

    I like to shoot from both strong and weak side too much to go so fully one sided. I was taught to lay my thumb on top of my fingers and not wrap around when firing supported as well, so the improved ergos don’t help with my style much either.

  • Edeco

    So is there a term for the thumb-over-trigger-finger grip? If not one should be made up…

      “Hitcher on the Roof”

      If I was them I would be looking at ways to make just the ass end available for common semi-auto platform mounting. Doubt most Norwegians care about ban states, or want to wade into that market willy-nilly.
      Hera Arms showed it’s a great prospect and killed it though.

      • Edeco

        Indeed about Hera Arms; great monent in industrial design, like Loewy designing the Lucky Strike cig logo again.

    there are so many options now in this category that someone needs to do a shootoff. There is this, plus Springfield’s chassis rifle (that can be had for under $1000), a couple of Bergara’s, one the XM-R (as I recall) that is a long range precision rifle light enough to take hunting, plus its chassis system, and the Ruger RPR. there are probably a few more that I don’t recall at the moment, all with MSRPs of between $1100 and $1800.
