Stevens, under the Savage Arms family, has a simplistic, new single-shot shotgun they would like to announce to the world: the Stevens 301. Nothing we have not seen before, but affordability and utility are always a great find in any firearm model and this offers both.
It features a traditional black synthetic stock which is perfect for any firearm that is going to be hunted. The synthetic stock will naturally show less wear if it is abused or hunted hard. The single hammer and break-action tab by the receiver are all intuitive pieces for any shotgun user. Savage Arms will be immediately offering the Stevens 301 in both standard and compact models.
