New From Savage Arms: Model 10 GRS

Not sure how Savage reconciles calling the new Model 10 GRS a “secret weapon” with sending out press releases about it, but either way it sounds like a great rifle. We’re certainly living through a renaissance of extremely accurate, highly-configurable bolt guns at non-custom prices. Press release follows . . .

Savage Arms Introduces Model 10 GRS

SUFFIELD, Connecticut – April 19, 2017 – Savage Arms is pleased to offer serious long-range shooters a new secret weapon with the Savage Model 10 GRS. The rifle delivers exceptional accuracy and performance whether you’re engaged in top-level competition or simply trying to beat your personal best. Shipments of these firearms are currently being delivered to dealers.

The Model 10 GRS houses the full suite of accuracy-enhancing Savage features firmly within a GRS stock made of 15 percent fiberglass-reinforced Durethan, with 65 percent glass bedding material.

The rock-stable stock’s slimmed down dimensions and textured surfaces provide a better grip in wet conditions, while its length-of-pull can be adjusted to fit any shooter. Plus, its Savage action, precise button rifling, fluted heavy barrel and user-adjustable AccuTrigger deliver the accuracy of custom rifles at a fraction of the price.

    It looks like a TC Encore and an Anschutz killed a fifth of tequila together nine months ago. I want to touch it.

    No left-handed version? For shame, Savage!

    1. avatar Alan Esworthy says:

      Yes, that’s the first thing I looked for and was also disappointed.

      Aside: I’m an odd case here. I’m right-handed but have poor vision in my right eye and so although I shoot handguns right-handed, I shoot rifles left-handed. I do OK with it, though, including an Army Sharpshooter badge (missed Expert by one @#$&* round!).

      From the photo it’s hard to tell if the cheek riser is concave or convex on the lefty side. I’m gonna have to find out.

  4. avatar Aaron says:

    Hmm I wonder what gives you the idea that a 6.5 Creedmore version is planned? That’s some hard hitting investigative journalism… I’ll bet it’s going to come with a 24 inch barrel.

    1. avatar JeffR says:

      Try googling 6mm Creedmor ….

    2. avatar Jeremy S. says:

      For the reading impaired, the press release lists 6.5 Creedmoor, which is a different caliber than the 6mm Creedmoor I mentioned later. How ’bout dat?

      Also, it’ll probably have a 26″ barrel.

      Also, cash me ousside.

      😉

        lol my bad. Misread that. : )

  5. avatar ORCON says:

    Why in the name of all things good and holy does the 308 version only get a 20″ barrel?

    1. avatar Will says:

      Good question, because the velocity doesn’t level off with the .308 until about 26 inches. http://rifleshooter.com/2014/12/308-winchester-7-62x51mm-nato-barrel-length-versus-velocity-28-to-16-5/

  6. avatar KAP says:

    .308 barrel needs to be longer, they are handicapping this chambering in favor of the 6.5, Why? Some so called expert says that a 20 inch barrel is good enough for our snipers why not a bench rest guy!

  7. avatar Julius Corrino says:

    What I don’t get is why GRS is not considering making a long action version of the Berserk stock. This thing is screaming for the .300 Win Mag.

  8. avatar MONTY SNOW says:

    WHAT IS THE MOST ACCURATE 6.5 CREEDMOOR ROUND IN THE NEW SAVAGE MODEL 10 GRS 6.5. WILL BE DEER, COYOTES, SHEEP AND TARGETS. THANKS,
    MONYTY
