From Savage Arms . . .

Savage Arms has continued to raise the bar in factory hunting rifles by incorporating new technologies and forming strategic partnerships. The KLYM series is the latest evolution and brings new performance to rifles designed for the highest treks and most remote backcountry hunts. This innovative line of rifles featuring exclusive partnerships with PROOF Research and Fine Ballistic Tools (FBT) includes the proven 110 and Impulse platforms.

Savage has made a commitment to designing and building rifles for the modern hunter and shooter. These offerings need to feature innovation and advancements in development without sacrificing accuracy and reliability. The KLYM series offers some of the lightest, toughest rifles available to hunters today.

“The KLYM line truly is revolutionary for big game hunting,” said Beth Shimanski, Director of Marketing at Savage. “PROOF and FBT helped take us to the next level. Hunters accustomed to long hunts and backcountry expeditions that span multiple days and numerous climbs will appreciate the lightweight platform that maintains the ultimate in accuracy and reliability. Everything about this rifle was made to perform as it stands up to the elements and puts the latest technologies in these comprehensive big game rifles.”

Each KLYM offering features an exclusive carbon fiber wrapped, steel cut and 5/8×24 threaded barrel from PROOF research. When combined with the FBT custom carbon fiber stock, these rifles will allow hunters to go further and hunt harder with less weight. The stocks also include one-button adjustable comb height, two sling studs and a Magnaswitch system installed.

For the ultimate in accuracy and functionality in the field, the 110 KLYM options include a user-adjustable 1.5-4 lb. AccuTrigger, tang safety, blueprinted action, drilled and tapped receiver (8-40) and a one-piece picatinny scope rail. Available calibers include options from 6.5 Creedmoor to .300 WSM. The full list is available at

The Impulse platform continues to expand and Savage’s American-made straight-pull rifle is now available in more configurations to accommodate hunters and shooters of all types. With light-weight accuracy, unbelievably strong and durable buttstock and forend and the lightning-fast straight-pull action, the Impulse KLYM truly raises the bar and creates a rifle unmatched for big game hunting. The Impulse KLYM is also available in calibers from 6.5 Creedmoor to .300 WSM to allow hunters to pursue a wide variety of big game.

    • My knee jerk observation too! I know the action is really tough and since they are kind of ambidextrous I have an early steel and plastic Impulse, but just how many 300 Win Mags will those thin pieces of carbon fiber take? Also, what happens if you drop one say on the wrist?

      • that stuff is ridiculous, ttag tested carbon fiber scope mounts. in the comments the manufacturer stated they were stronger than ti and as stiff as steel (i think 1018 was mentioned). of course those were compressed (“forged”).

  1. I have no experience with straight pull rifles. But from my reading aren’t the straight pulls kind of weak in regards to reliability in adverse conditions?

  2. Since firearm weight seems to a big deal nowadays perhaps some hunters should try losing 20 pounds or more? Once that nice sounding rifle is decked out and a substantial amount of ammo is purchased it’s going to cost just shy of 4Gs.

  3. my experience with straight pulls is limited to owning a savage impulse and handling a blaser r8 and a strasser. The european rifles were similar to european cars. Think of them like a bmw and a Mercedes. Slick, fast, trendy and very expensive. The savage is equivalent to an old yugo. rough, slow, ugly and utterly without redeeming feature. you can’t switch calibers, you can’t reload quickly, and you can’t stand to look at it. at the price they are charging for this new impulse model, you are getting close to a Strasser or every level blaser, which are both 10 times the rifle. i can’t see the market for this but my tastes do run to the traditional (i have several square bridge mausers with wood stocks and no carbon fiber anything)

  4. The first manufacturer to offer a straight-pull rifle in MSR calibers, with MSR magazines, and at a reasonable price, is gonna rock the bolt action world. And the company smart enough to step up and be the game-changer is gonna make a mint by doing it.

    Hey Savage- you’re SO close… you just gotta follow through, man.

    And Ruger- where you at, brother? You ain’t gonna let some punk-ass Savage beat you to the prize, are ya? Your American Ranch Rifle is only a straight-pull away…

    Git ‘er done.

  5. Not shooting much less owning a high powered rifle that uses ball bearings in its lock up scheme. I like big lugs and I cannot lie.

    • Ball bearings have worked just fine in some pretty harsh conditions in roller-delayed actions such as: MG 42, SIG 510/710-3, CETME, HK G3/MP5/P9/HK21, and others…

      • Some of those are roller bearings and they are not part of the lock up scheme like the savage. Dont relish the thought of pulling the bolt out of my orbital socket and brain.

        • Yeah, that sounds rather unpleasant. So, that must happen a lot, huh? Hmm… I’ve somehow missed hearing about all those Savage straight-pull catastrophic failure lobotomies.

          Guess I gotta get out from underneath my rock more often…

  6. I’d rather have one of those UK Straight Pulls made from AR parts. They keep the return spring so the action is very fast. Might not be as accurate but still fine for hunting.

  7. I have tried straight pull actions and just not convinced I need one. Savage makes a lightweight convention bolt rifle called the “Storm”. Very nice for far less $.

    • Got an entry-level Savage bolt w/ scope in 243 at Walmart (193$ w/ tax) – bought a 260 Rem barrel, got plans for a 338 Federal. Good times.

      I get having a semi with a gas valve, but for dedicated straight pull, why not go with a pump? Lol, a straight pull is a pump you have to operate with the wrong hand…

      • Because a pump action doesn’t work that well for folks like me- I’m missing a thumb and finger on my off hand (which happens to be my left… but there are no “wrong” hands).

        And the dollar sign ($) goes in front of the numerical value- not after it.
