Savage Arms has expanded their MSR-10 Long Range semi-auto line up by adding a version chambered in the increasingly popular 6mm Creedmoor cartridge. Like the other MSR’s (Modern Sporting Rifle) in it’s line up, the 6mm has a compact receiver that features a non-reciprocation charging handle located on the left side of the upper receiver. This additional charging handle affords the shooter the ease of charging the rifle without the use of the traditionally mounted charging handle that can often be hard to access when a scope is mounted.
The rifle it fitted with Blackhawk AR Blaze two-stage trigger and Knoxx AR Pistol grip. It features Savage’s own 22.5″ long fluted barrel with 5R rifling and a 1:7.5″ twist and Melonite QPQ finish for improved corrosion resistance. The rifle is also equipped with a Magpul MRS Gen 3 Stock which allows the shooter to adjust the length of pull and cheekweld to fit the rifle to them. The free-floated octagon shaped handguard securely attaches to the upper receiver and has a picatiny rail on top that runs the full length with a cut opened in the front for easy access to an adjustable gas port. The remaining seven sides of the handguard has M-Lok attachments slots for mounting additional accessories. The overall length of the rifle measures 43.13″ – 45.13″ and the total weight without optic is 9.5 lbs. The rifle ships with one 10 round magazine and has a suggested MSRP of $2284, which of course the street value will be less.
