Savage 110 Precision Elite rifle – review


The 110 Precision Elite from Savage Arms is “built from the bottom up for competition use”, says Ben Mcilwaine, a competition rifle shooter sponsored by Edgar Brothers, which imports Savage rifles into the UK.

The rifle has an MDT ACC titanium nitride chassis, allowing complete customisation of weight and balance to minimise recoil and improve performance, plus M-LOK rails on the left, right and bottom for quick attachments like bipods and bags.

It also has an adjustable pistol grip and comes with a 10-round mag.

Complete control: almost everything can be tweaked to suit your needs


Ben is particularly drawn to the “super smooth bolt action” and AccuTrigger, which was developed by Savage in 2002 and allows users to adjust the weight of the pull of the trigger.

“It’s like that glock pistol style, first safety pull in and then that real crisp break and it’s adjustable – fully adjustable to whatever you want.”

Another bonus is the quick mag release, as Ben says, “you can be in that final firing position and don’t have to faff about unlike those forward catch magazine systems”.
