The Savage Model 10 Precision Carbine in .308 is perfectly sized for most law enforcement sniping duties. Its shorter barrel makes it easy to maneuver in cramped quarters, and the legendary Savage AccuTrigger provides you with a clean, crisp pull every time. Shown here with a Vortex Viper PST 4-16x50mm scope.

After 30 years in law enforcement, I’ve come to the point where I really don’t like dragging a lot of gear through brush and fields during our tactical operations in the largely rural jurisdictional area where I work. Dragging a long-barreled, excessively heavy precision rifle just doesn’t trip my trigger anymore. My personal sniper rifle, for example, is a 20-inch barreled AR in 6.8 SPC.

Needless to say, I prefer light and handy carbines with reasonable recoil that are capable of precision shots from a cold barrel. So, when I spotted the Savage Model 10 Precision Carbine in .308, I was immediately intrigued.

A detachable 4-shot box mag enhances the ability to reload or clear the carbine in critical situations.

Gun Details
Available in both .308 and .223 chamberings, the Model 10 Precision Carbine not only is compact (it is a carbine after all), but it is also ready “out-of-the-box” for deployment. Besides the short 20-inch heavy barrel and light 7-pound weight, there is also the factory applied Army digital camouflage stock, two sling swivel mounting points on the forend (one for a sling, one for a bipod or other type of accessory), an enlarged bolt handle, detachable 4-shot box magazine and the absolutely outstanding Savage AccuTrigger. It also has one other characteristic that will make individual officers and agencies alike happy—a very reasonable price of $880.

    I just bought one sort of like this at Academy Sports .It has a 16.5 in barrel that is threaded for a suppressor,Accutrigger,huge bolt knob, and a black synthetic stock. It shoots like a dream. It(at 100 yds.) would put 5 rds. into one hole if I could hold it a little steadier. It was a special run just for the store. I bought a Rossi .44 magnum with a 2 in. barrel last year from them. They don’t make those anymore either. I have a feeling they may be collector’s items some day.

    I just bought the .308 one, and the first thing i’ve done is acetone that failed Army camo pattern off and properly applied a few coats of flat black. The only thing that pattern blends into is the gravel on the FOB. Notice how they switched to a pattern that makes sense now.

    Can I get this stock for a Savage model 111 300 Win Mag?
