Savage is pleased to announced the availability of its new model 555 over-under, double-barrel shotgun. This lightweight gun is ready to go for shotgun games and putting dinner on the table.

The 555 is a budget-minded Stevens model with an eye towards simplicity in order to hit a price point that’s almost unmatched in the arena of over-unders.

Offered in 12- and 20-gauge, the Steven 555 has an MSRP of just $692. Real-world prices are in the mid-$500s making it a solid option for beginners or anyone with a limited allowance.

Included with every Stevens 555 are five interchangeable choke tubes to suit all shooting needs.

The Stevens 555 is built on a lightweight aluminum receiver that’s scaled to match the caliber to keep bulk down and maximize handling. The receiver has a steel-reinforced breech to make it run shot after shot of 2.75 or 3-inch loads.

The chrome-lined barrels measure in at 28 inches for the 12-gauge model and 26 inches for the 20-gauge. They’re very light shotguns at 6 pounds for the 12-gauge and 5.5 pounds for the 20.

Every 555 is made with a Turkish walnut buttstock and forend. The wood is finely checkered along the gripping surface for enhanced traction. The model 555 also uses a manual tang-mounted safety, shell extractors and has a single, selective trigger.
