Savage Arms recently announced the release of its newest hunting shotguns, the Model 212 and 220 bolt-action shotguns. Moreover, Savage designed the new line of shotguns specifically for turkey hunters.
Though previously offered through the Savage Special Order Office, this full release makes the 212 and 220 available everywhere, according to Savage. Also, the 212 is chambered in 12-gauge, while the 220 comes in 20-gauge.
Savage Model 212 and 220
Savage based each of the shotguns on the company’s iconic Model 110 rifle action. Further, Savage machines that action from steel bar stock. Also, the company secures the action three-dimensionally along its entire length by the AccuStock internal chassis, according to Savage.
The shotguns utilize 22-inch carbon steel barrels that are free-floated and secured to the receiver using a Model 110-style locking nut. Meanwhile, the company’s popular AccurTrigger is user-adjustable. Also, the AccuFit system delivers adjustment capability for length-of-pull and comb height. A detachable, two-round magazine rounds out a turkey gun package that is quite unlike most tube-fed platforms on the market.
