Savage Arms, the very well-known US-manufacturer of hunting and target rifles, introduces its first American-made semiautomatic 12 gauge shotgun, the Renegauge. Designed to offer hunters and competitors “a new standard for both fit and function”, the new shotgun features among other things the patented Dual Regulating Inline Valve (D.R.I.V.) gas system. The D.R.I.V. system regulates the gas that cycles the shotgun’s action, resulting in consistent ejection, less felt recoil, and a lightning fast cyclic rate. Both low-brass target shells and Magnum hunting shells – light loads and field loads – will cycle the action with the same reliability.
Savage Renegauge, entering the shotgun category “in a big way”
“This project has been in the works for years because we wanted to enter a new category in a big way. The team in place now did an amazing job getting this to the finish line. Hunters and shooters are going to be amazed with the fit, feel, function and versatility of this shotgun. And it’s a platform we can and will build on – so look for more in the very near future,” said Al Kasper, President and CEO at Savage.
For the enjoyment of hunters and competitors alike, from length of pull to comb height, drop and cast, the Renegauge can be fully adjusted to fit the shooter.
The one-piece action bar assembly and reciprocating components are chrome plated for durability and controls are oversized for easy of manipulation. The Renegauge sports a fluted barrel with melonite finish and carbon steel ventilated rib with red fiber optic sight, while the magazine port features a competition-ready design for easy loading. Magazine capacity is 4+1.
The new Savage shotgun comes with 3 interchangeable flush mount choke tubes (Beretta/Benelli) – IC, M, F – in a hard-sided carrying case.
