Massachusetts-based Savage has a new lightweight over-under in the company's well-received line of Stevens shotguns: the 555 Sporting.
Designed specifically for the sporting clays and trap shooting community with a price point (just) under $1,000, the 555 Sporting has a lightweight aluminum-alloy receiver with a steel insert that reinforces the breech, to trim ounces while still giving strength. Only offered in a 12-gauge with twin 30-inch chrome-lined ported barrels, it features a raised ventilated rib with mid-bead and front fiber-optic sight and an adjustable cheek riser. The 555 Sporting includes five extended chokes (F, IM, M, IC, C), has a single selective mechanical trigger, a 3-inch chamber, and Turkish walnut furniture.
"The 555 over/under shotguns come in at an affordable price point but maintain the quality and usability of which is associated with the Stevens line of shotguns,” said Jessica Treglia, senior brand manager for Savage Arms. "The 555 Sporting model further adds to this unparalleled line of over/unders with a diverse set of features ideal for the competitive shooter."
The MSRP on the Stevens 555 Sporting Model is $991.
