Stevens — the economical brand of hunting guns by Savage Arms — has expanded two shotgun series for lighter chamberings.

First, Stevens has made available the 555 series of over-under shotguns in 28 gauge and .410 and are on their way to stores now.

The Connecticut company says the 555 has a “scaled-to-gauge lightweight aluminum receiver” that “employs a steel insert that reinforces the breech to maximize strength while keeping weight down.”

Features include a Turkish walnut stock and fore-end, shell extractors, a tang-mounted manual safety, a chrome-lined barrel, and a single, selective, mechanical trigger. The shotgun also includes five interchangeable choke tubes. Retail price for both the 28 gauge and the .410 is listed as $692.

Second, Stevens expanded its 320 shotgun line with two new 20 gauges — a Muddy Girl Camo and Youth model, both listed at $264

Like other 320 field-grade models, they feature dual slide bars, a rotary bolt, rugged synthetic stock, vent rib and a five-round capacity. Both models include interchangeable chokes and come in compact and standard length of pull models, finished in Muddy Girl camo.
