    Stevens 555

    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.

    555 Over-And-Under

    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.
