Savage Announces New B-Series Bolt Action Rimfires

    Savage B-Series Rifle

    New Savage B-Series Rimfire Rifles

    Savage has been on quite a roll lately. They have teased us about the upcoming MSR-15 and MSR-10 rifles with a slick YouTube video, they announced the cool new A-Series rimfire auto-loaders and the Savage Stealth centerfire chassis rifles announced last October are shipping.

    The latest and perhaps greatest is a new rimfire bolt-action rifle from the firearms branch of Vista Outdoor Inc. The Savage B-Series rifle will be offered in .22 Long Rifle, .22 Magnum and .17 HMR calibers. The B22, B22 Magnum and B17 Savage rimfire rifles will feature a 10-round rotary magazine, the famous adjustable Savage AccuTrigger, and a button-rifled barrel.

    The Savage B-Series will be offered with sporter profile barrels, heavy barrel, heavy threaded suppressor ready barrels and heavy stainless barrels depending on the particular model rifle. All of the B-series rifles are drilled and tapped for scope mounts and have a top mounted tang safety.

    There only seems to be plans for composite stock on the B-Series models at this announcement, so I think it is pretty safe to assume that Savage will continue to sell the legacy Mark II Series and 17-Series models for now.

    MSRP starts at $281 and tops out at $413. Street prices, as always, are expected to be significantly less by the time these rimfire bolt guns reach your local dealers shelves.
