Savage Arms is inviting shooting enthusiasts to a new series of free, open-to-the-public events hosted at ranges across the country to test-fire many of the company’s firearms. Dates, locations and a video on the effort can be found on the Savage Trigger Tour website.

“We’re proud to be teaming up with some of our great dealers to host these events,” said Savage Arms Senior Marketing Manager Beth Shimanski. “In addition to letting you try Savage’s best firearms, the events also offer great opportunities to meet like-minded hunters and shooters in your area. Plus, Savage Arms representatives will be on hand to answer firearms questions and help customers get the most out of their shooting experiences.”

The Savage Arms Trigger Tour runs from June through October with stops at ranges and retailers starting in Louisiana and Arkansas. Other planned locations include Alabama, Florida and Mississippi, as well as South Dakota, Minnesota, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

The tour will showcase different models, depending on location—all outfitted with Bushnell optics and fueled by Federal Premium and CCI ammunition. One noteworthy model that shooters will have an opportunity to test is Savage’s model 10 BA Stealth, chambered in .308 Win. or 6.5 Creedmoor, the newest lightweight, compact member of the company’s long-range chassis series. Savage’s new MSR 15 Recon in .223 Wylde could show up or the MSR 10 Hunter. The odds are also good there will also be plenty to make rimfire fans happy, and the events are a great opportunity for shooters to experience Savage’s user-adjustable AccuTrigger.

Savage Arms was founded by inventor/adventurer Arthur Savage in 1894. His hammerless, lever-action Savage Model 99 is acknowledged by most gun experts as one of his greatest achievements in the firearm industry, but commuters rely on another of his inventions every day. He patented the radial tire in 1915.
