Savage Announces New Minimalist Series Rimfire Rifles

The new Minimalist rifles from Savage blend laminate wood furniture with improved ergonomics for a modern rimfire.

Offered in .22 LR (Mark II) as well as .22 WMR and .17 HMR calibers (Model 93) in a choice between green or brown finishes, the Minimalist series consists of a half-dozen bolt-action rifles across the variants. All share the same receiver style and lightweight laminate stock. All come standard with a threaded 18-inch carbon steel sporter contour barrel, 10-round detachable magazine, and a user-adjustable Accu-Trigger.

“Minimalist combines the perfect balance of lightweight ergonomics and reliable performance,” said Beth Shimanski, Director of Marketing for Savage. “At just 5.68-pounds, they’re perfect for backyard plinking or hunting on the move. You can carry one all day and hardly feel it.”

On Model 93 series rifles the magazines are straight while the Mark II’s .22LR mags are curved. All use readily available 10-round mags with factory 5-round models also in circulation.

All feature a user-adjustable Savage AccuTrigger that can be tuned from 2.5- to 6-pounds.

With an overall length of 37-inches, each Minimalist has a 13.75-inch length of pull. The series comes sans sights but with two short Weaver-style scope bases pre-installed. Suppressor-ready, they have threaded muzzles with a common 1/2x28TPI thread pitch and cap.

MSRP is $359 across the board.
