First Look: Savage 110 Ultralite Rifle in Kuiu Verde 2.0

posted on November 26, 2020

Savage’s 110 Ultralite rifle is now available in Kuiu Verde 2.0 camouflage, an exceptional pattern that is anything but traditional, making it a perfect fit for the most innovative Model 110 rifle Savage has built. The 110 Ultralite is a new addition to Savage’s Backcountry Xtreme Series, and has been pared down to less than 6 pounds. From the spiral-fluted bolt and skeletonized receiver to the carbon fiber wrapped barrel from Proof Research, the 110 Ultralite is perfect for shooters who demand performance from a gun that is still light enough to carry all day.

“The 110 Ultralite’s carbon fiber wrapped barrel has a distinctive look,” Jessica Treglia, Sr. Brand Manager at Savage Arms, said. “The Kuiu Verde 2.0 pattern matches the barrel’s unique aesthetics and still provides excellent concealment properties when it matters most. 

Kuiu Verde 2.0 is a popular choice for people who hunt in high elevations and evergreen forests, adding to the 110 Ultralite’s utility for hunters who hike long distances and take long shots in the mountains. The carbon fiber wrapped stainless steel barrel and skeletonized receiver can withstand harsh environments, and accuracy of the rifle is ensured by a factory blueprinted Savage 110 action.

Underneath the Verde 2.0 camo is a robust polymer stock created with Savage’s AccuFit technology. The stock is adjustable for length of pull and comb height to provide hunters with a tailored fit for optimal performance, and the user-adjustable AccuTrigger allows for fine-tuning of trigger weight down to a 1.5-pound pull.
