Savage Arms is known for making bolt-action and semi-automatic rifles in both rimfire and centerfire calibers. The company also makes 1911-style pistols as well as smaller, defensive pistols like the Savage Stance. Savage also makes shotguns and is expanding the 320 Tactical Shotgun line with the release of the 320 Tactical FDE (Flat Dark Earth) model. The reliable pump action and rugged build of the 320 have made it a top choice for many shooters and has resulted in multiple line extensions and options over several years.

“The 320 Tactical Shotgun is a mainstay in our lineup and we want to continue to offer new options,” said Beth Shimanski, Director of Marketing at Savage Arms. “The 320 Tactical FDE is a make-sense addition and we’re excited to have it available now.”

The 320 is available in both 12-gauge and 20-gauge models and weighs only 7 pounds. The 320 Tactical FDE features an 18.5-inch barrel, ghost ring sights and a flat dark earth matte synthetic stock with a pistol grip. Like all 320 shotguns, this 320 Security model has a proven rotary bolt and dual slide-bars.

Savage 320 Tactical FDE Features:

  • Pistol grip
  • Ghost ring sights
  • Bottom-loading tube magazine
