Savage unleashed a flurry of new high-performance firearms at the 2018 NRA Meetings and Exhibits Show in Dallas, TX. The new models unveiled include the MSR 15 Long Range and MSR 15 300 Blackout Pistol.
The MSR 15 Long Range is built with a 22-inch stainless steel barrel to deliver pinpoint precision at any distance. Savage engineers tuned barrel length specifically for the 224 Valkyrie cartridge to achieve peak accuracy at extreme range. The MSR 15 Long Range barrel is also topped with a two-port muzzle brake mounted with Savage’s proprietary taper-lock interface. The brake allows shooters to adjust recoil impulse and stabilize the muzzle for faster, more accurate follow-up shots.
The MSR 15 Long Range also features a custom-length gas system, paired with a low-profile adjustable gas block that is enclosed by a true free-float handguard. The gas block can be adjusted for optimum cycling of the full range of bullet weights and tuned for use with a suppressor.
For its part, the MSR 15 Blackout Pistol, equipped with KAK Shockwave Brace, takes full advantage of the 300 Blackout’s adaptability to a wide range of hunting, self-defense, and tactical situations. The AR Pistol uses a pistol-length gas system so shooters can utilize suppressors and reliably cycle subsonic ammunition without adding length and weight. Plus, the company says its 10.5-inch melonite QPQ coated barrel’s 5R button rifling provides both accuracy and maneuverability, while a full suite of accessory upgrades make it easier and more comfortable to shoot.
