110 Ultralite Rifle
Savage teamed up with PROOF Research once again to craft a barrel specific for a purpose-driven firearm. At 6 pounds and under, the 110 Ultralite is designed to combat elevation and elements while maintaining the performance of a factory blueprinted Savage 110 action. The carbon fiber wrapped stainless steel barrel and melonite-treated, skeletonized receiver minimize weight for success on any mountain hunt. The rifle comes equipped with Savage’s AccuFit technology with adjustable length of pull and comb height to provide hunters with optimum fit and performance. The 1.5 4-pound user-adjustable AccuTrigger allows crisp, clean shots to close out successful hunts. savagearms.com
