Based on the Model 10 action, the Savage Scout is a short, handy, big game calibered bolt-action rifle that's perfectly suited for tight spots. The FCM Scout weighs just over a 6-1/2" pounds with a 20-inch barrel and a 4-round detachable box magazine. The bolt has opposing, dual-locking lugs, a spring-loaded extractor, and a plunger-type ejector built into the recessed bolt face. The barrel is pillar-bedded in a black, synthetic stock with grip and forend checkering. The Scout comes standard with ghost ring sights for quick target acquisition and also features a barrel-mounted scope rail for shooters that prefer optics. The Savage AccuTrigger breaks cleanly and crisply and is adjustable at home without a gunsmith. A webbed sling is included with every purchase.
