Offering what Savage bills as “pint-sized precision” for smaller statured users, the company has expanded their Rascal line of bolt-action rifles to include options for southpaws.

The four new models, two Left Hand and two FLV-SRs, all feature a synthetic stock with an 11.25-inch length-of-pull and a 16.125-inch barrel with a 1-in-16-inch RH twist. Likewise, a Savage AccuTrigger, adjustable from 2.5- to 6-pounds, is standard as is the .22 rimfire chambering that supports 22 S, L, or LR cartridges in a 1+1 format. The Rascals unload without pulling the trigger, have a manual safety and are drilled and tapped for scope mounts.

Where the differences between the quartet come in is in stock color — pink or black — and between the more basic Left Hand model and FLV-SR. The former uses a carbon steel sporter barrel with adjustable peep sights and tips the scales at a svelte 2.71-pounds. The FLV-SR has a heavy barrel with a threaded (1/2-28TPI) suppressor-ready muzzle and large-handled bolt. As such, the FLV-SR weighs a bit more, coming in at 3.52-pounds.

The Left Hand, top, uses a carbon sporter barrel and adjustable peep sights while the FLV-SR, bottom, has a heavy barrel with a threaded muzzle. Both are drilled and tapped for scope mounts

Retail ranges from $191 for the Left Hand to $219 for the FLV-SR.
