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.

Going on 40 years ago, I blundered my way into my first job in the gunwriting business. It was a function of pure, dumb luck on my part and for that, I am eternally thankful. Among the many blessings of this luck were the great people I met and the range of new experiences. Such new people included the late Chuck Karwan, my fellow Vietnam vet and as good a friend as I could possibly want.
