New for 2019: Savage Arms Rifles in Mossy Oak Overwatch Camo

posted on October 5, 2019

New from Savage Arms in 2019 are multiple firearms designed to appeal to fans of Mossy Oak’s Overwatch pattern. Multiple calibers of the company's A Series, B Series, AXIS II, Model 110s, and MSR rifles are now available, finished in Overwatch, at your local Savage Arms dealer.

The National Rifle Association has chosen Mossy Oak’s Overwatch as its official camouflage pattern. The name of the pattern, Overwatch, was chosen to honor our military and the functions it performs, including the force-protection tactic known as Overwatch.

Developed as the first-ever Mossy Oak pattern to use the technology of 3D modeling, this pattern provides groundbreaking levels of detail while also providing unparalleled concealment in multiple settings.

“Overwatch is the ideal pattern for the NRA,” said Beth Shimanski, director of marketing at Savage. “The incredible detail provides excellent camouflage, but Overwatch is more than a camo pattern. These new rifles stand as a symbol of how hunters, firearms manufacturers, accessory makers and our political advocates all work together.”

The Overwatch Camouflage Pattern is available on the rimfire rifles of the Savage A and B Series as well as the all-purpose AXIS II and long-range Model 110 bolt action rifles and semi-automatic Savage MSR line. Flexible and adaptable, the new Overwatch pattern will add unmatched concealment to the already outstanding features of these rifles.

What is the Greatest Defensive Skill?

You can say what you want to about your favorite defensive school or those advanced-fighting techniques you learned, but the greatest defensive skill that a person can develop is simply awareness. I will freely admit that developing effective awareness is anything but simple, but being able to spot trouble before it is close enough to get in your face will certainly save you from a lot of trouble and possibly even some pain and grief.
