Savage Arms announces a patriotic addition to the company’s line of single-shot Rascal rifles. The Rascal Red, White, & Blue wears an American flag-motif camo pattern, making it a colorful homage to Old Glory. In addition to the American flag theme helping the Rascal stand out, the rifle’s size and length-of-pull make it a great fit for patriotic young shooters. 

“It is our responsibility to help teach firearm safety to the next generation of American hunters and marksmen,” said Beth Shimanski, Director of Marketing for Savage Arms. “but that doesn’t mean the tools we use to teach can’t be fun. We’re proud of our American heritage and we’re showing that pride with these diminutive guns that are built to the same demanding standards as every other Savage.” 

When it comes to bringing new shooters to the firing line, especially the younger ones, having a rifle that is sized properly is critical. At the same time, a rifle that stands out, like the new Savage Rascal Red, White & Blue, helps increase interest and makes a statement. Mentors can assist new shooters to build the necessary shooting skills with help from Savage’s standard features that might be absent on other, small rimfire rifles. This Rascal teaches neophytes how to shoot safely and accurately tools like its adjustable peep sights to the user-adjustable AccuTrigger.

  • Synthetic stock with American flag pattern

  • Adjustable peep sights
